Tasted as Sophia Lambic 2020 Small white rim over hazy lighter yellow beer. Dry spices and grapes, dry citruspeel, almost " herb ". Dry citrus, mild lactic acid. Dry white wine hints, vinous, lemon in the finish. Acidthinning and light -burn, not very carbonated, bit fruitslick. Nice one!

Draught Head gone in second; veiled orange beer. Spicy-lactic-oranges, farmyard. Oranges returning in the flavour, lactic acid, citrus, farmyard; hints at fruitsugars, if faraway thumbprint. Feels somewhat better bodied, low carbonation - almost still. Strange, after the Parasol, yet another Cantillon tasting of oranges and lots of citrus flavours, as if the beers had been... 'contaminated'?

Draught Towering, ultra dense white head over bright orange beer. Bitterish, orangepeel nose, herbs and rootspices (ginger, lavender...) Sourish-bitterish, again typically orange(peel)flavours. Herbs/spices are here as well, if less pronounced as in the nose. Hints @ acetic, gooseberry, sour citrus. More than a bit perfumey. Lipsmacking acidity, quite slick, medium bodied (=good for lambic), overcarbonated. Not bad (of course), but this is not quite what I expect from lambicbeer. Still not exactly spectacular.

Dark brown color. Excellent mix of green coffee beans and citrus hops working in harmony in the nose. Medium body, medium bitterness, super quaffable and good depth. Super approachable

Nice light juicy Mikan rinds and sharp citrus character. Juicy, with soft mouth feel, low medium bitterness, but there are no hops in this beer. The bitterness is driven by the fruit. Very interesting and refreshing. This concept needs to be explored more.

Bottle 56. Hugely sweet, like a sugary blanket over everything. Thick and rich, doesn't drink like a 17% beer, more like a liqueuer. Wine is there, smooth stout, honey.. lovely stuff, but so sweet. I can understand it being too much for people.

Vintage 2011, bottled 09/2014. No gusher, just a slight puff. Smells balsamic oaky. Taste is slightly sour, but mostly so much oak. Some red wine, and quite a bit of fruity sweetness. Cherries, strawberries and some more balsamic down the throat. Lovely.

Awesome! Dark, strong, loads of barrel, almost no longer a tripel. Curious for the quad now.

Base beer is a fairly bittersweet, smooth quad. Barrel aging adds some boozyness, bourbon clearly there. Herbal, plenty of wood, warming.

Bottled 07/2014. Remarkable amount of carbonation, but it doesn't bother me here. The beer is filled with raisin juice, subtle dose of port, very sweet and fruity. Very wintery beer, great for snowy nights in front of the fire. Delicious stuff.

Very bourbonny, maybe a bit too much. Lots of apply, some spice. Definitely full of flavor. Curious for the port.

Bottled 21/06/2016. Wow, flavor bomb. Boozy and rich, so much raisins, super vinous. Sweet, malty, woody, just the right amount of bourbon elevates it to a whole new level. Balanced? Not really, but no need when it tastes like this. Absolutely gorgeous.

Massively overcarbed, took me 20+ minutes to release enough pressure to safely open and pour it without gushing. That said: absolutely delicious. Rich, warming, boozy and sweet. Loads of raisins. Barrels give wood, plenty tannins and buttery bourbon.

One of those Struises where it's not infected or sour, but also clearly not as it should be. Very flat, both in carbonation as in flavours. Tastes dusty, with a hint of funk. Some bourbon, plenty of wood. Caramelly, raisiny base, pretty sweet. Struise.

Bottled 15/12/2015. Lot no. 9611005. Infected. Tons of carbonation (but no gusher). Pretty sour, but as it opens up some sweetness too. Raisins, alcohol. Thin body. Somehow it works, like a demented Flemish brown. Interesting, not disgusting.

Bottled in 11/2014. All it's supposed to be and more. Exceptionally balanced. Sweet, bitter, strong, mellow, soft, herby. Awesome.

Taster. Such a brilliant beer. Vintage unknown, little bit more thin and slightly less chocolate than 2010. Wood. Can't go wrong.

Bottled 15-3-2016. Slight hiss, pours dark reddish brown, little bit of brownish foam. Smells malty, oaky, some dried fruit. Taste is nicely bitter, dry, plenty oak, something vaguely resembling old port. Some raisins, dried apple. Complex.
