December 2011 bottle.

A: Beautiful light-red with a big pink head. Foamy, great retention.

S: Mild cherry sweetness, a bit musty with a building hint of acidity.

T: Soft over-ripe (only mildly sweet) cherry mingled with a big, lactic, dry tartness. Breath of wheat and more lactic notes in the finish.

M: Frothy carbonation, light-bodied.

O: Love the tartness, but I'd like a little more fruitiness.

37.5cl bottle poured in a Cantillon stemmed lambic glass
Vintage: 2000

Enjoyed at DHvL in early June 2012. This beer concluded the dinner session of an enjoyable day with Joost, Jessie, Helena, Tom & Co. Enjoyed immediately following a mediocre '90 Wets Geuze that is non-existent to review on this site.

A: Pours a soft pinkish red. Three quarter (foamy off-white) fingernail head on vigorous pour.

S: Smells of raspberry, soft sweetness, and touch of funk + sourness. Classic (Cantillon) lambic smell and raspberry makes this very enjoyable to sniff.

T: Pungent punch of sour from the start! Soft raspberry follows with nice blend/balance of funk and must. Mild cherry tartness towards the end and a nice hint of sweetness, but most of the fruit is gone. Good stuff!

M: Light/medium bodied with appropriate carbonation.

O: Overall, a very nice and tasty beer. As previously mentioned, the fruit is mostly gone/faded on this. To re-balance itself I think this vintage could stand to sit for a bit and mellow out. However, classic/vintage Cantillon rarely disappoints and this follows that mantra.

Poured into tulip glass. Pours a light pinkish red with nice clarity. Rose colored head forms and dissipates quickly, minimal lacing present. The aroma features tart and dry cherries with notes of oak and tannins. The flavor starts with a bit of tart cherry, but never becomes sour. Instead the flavor dries quickly and has a very neutral finish. The mouthfeel is light with moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice lambic, although I was hoping for a little more tartness. Definitely a change of pace compared to other krieks I have encountered.
