Another fine brew from Cantillon. Vintage 2006 bottle poured into my Cantillon wine glass.

Deep, clear red raspberry color. A slight cap of light pink, tiny bubbles at the top. Pretty much what I expected.

Aroma is filled with raspberries, raspberries, raspberries everywhere. Also backed up with musty basement and slight funk aromas. This one is going to be sooour.

Sweet raspberry opening, but quickly plunges into sour, sour, sour raspberry and raspberry seeds. This beer is exceedingly seedy. Very interesting. Acidic. One of the sourest beers I've ever had. Not particularly complex, but I didn't necessarily expect it to be, and I love what the beer is presenting.

Mouthfeel is perfect. Light-medium bodied, super-dry finish, good carbonation.

Drinkability suffers only because it's so completely, intensely sour. I still polished off half a bottle without a problem, but this will wreck your palate.

Great beer. Recommended for any fan of lambic.

2011 at Moeder Lambic split with a fellow Murican I met.

Clear red and a persistent light pink tinged head.

Big ol' raspberry on the nose. Funky grassy and musty with some citric quality.

Light and tart on the tongue. Big delicious juicy raspberry on the flavor as is to be expected with this series. Musty funk. Finishes dry.

God this was great.

I saved this one to log as my 1,500th review. Big thanks to jcvanderbilt for the trade. Pours a bright juicy reddish pink with nice clarity and minimal head. The nose is unbelievable. Full of jammy raspberries, a hint of earth, layers of signature Cantillon funk, a hint of vinegar and oak, but mainly ripe fresh berries. I could smell this all day! The taste lives up to the delightful smell with fresh juicy berries, waves of tartness which are counterbalanced with sweetness. Each flavor pops as this is the tastiest lambic I have ever had the pleasure of trying. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation. Overall, this beer is fantastic. Definitely the best of the loons I have tried and one that I will have to seek out again.
