Mine was the 2007 vintage.

Pours a brilliant deep red, with a thin head. The beer is actually surprisingly clear for a lambic, but otherwise, it looks like I would expect it to. The smell is all fruit. Sweet fruit, candy like, maybe a bit of tartness, but almost reminds me of a fruit soda. Very nice - though sometimes you don't mind the smell of garbage in a wild ale. The flavor comes across first as tart and acidic, but it has a nice sweetness to balance. The flavor in some ways reminds me of raspberry-lime juice, if there were such a thing, also a slight sourness that is really nice, like sour candy. The taste is just surprisingly clean for a wild ale, just a nice blend of sweet and tart, with the flavor of fruit, just amazingly balanced. The bo dy is a little fuller than I expected, probably from the sweet fruit juice, and the carbonation is low, but you can tell that it's there. Fairly nice. This is really a nice beer, the sourness is there in it's fullness, but it is just held in balance with the beautiful blending and the addition of fruit. It's not too acidic, and doesn't remind you of garbage, it's just a great lambic. Really a joy to drink.

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.

2008 bottling

Just ever so slightly disappointing. Not quite the massive fruit bomb of the best year's I've had, nor aged enough to add funky complexity. Still gorgeous, ruby-maroon with fluffy head that lasts. Deep, bold berry notes on the nose and palate, and sharp, lingering, fierce tartness. Clean, overly so in fact. A round, medium body with a crisp finish.

This particular tasting was a fine bottling I'd love to have easy access to, but not something to write home about.
