Bottle pour at the brewery.

Pours a murky reddish orange.

Smell is powerful, with some grape fruit and quite a bit of cloudberry. Smell is more perfumey than sours usually are.

Taste is massive, with the grape fruit and cloudberries joined by oak, and some earthy bitterness. Finish is long and dry.

Mouthfeel is medium, thicker than other Cantillons.

Overall, a bit of an odd bird for Cantillon. Tastes like almost nothing else I've had, but I really, really liked it.

Poured warm from bottle at the brewery. Color is dark orange, a bit murky. Nose is funk, grape peel, and some lemon. Taste is crazy. Getting grapefruit - like taking a bit off of one directly from the tree. Orange peel, huge bitter presence, skunk. I actually like the boldness and complexity on this one. Mouthfeel is very dry and funky.

Hazy amber brownish color with some big bubbles. Really pungent old wood barrel on the aroma, dusty and musty. Taste follows with the dusty wood and earthy bitterness. A bit of acidity but it's more astringent, not sour. Flat, medium body.

I had this Cantillon Lambic d'Haute Densite at the Cantillon Brewery. Unique, boozy, flat and absolutely phenomenal, my favorite of all the Cantillon brews I tried that day.
