Pours a gorgeous pinkish red color with a fizzed-out light pink head resting on top. Dissolves completely, leaving little retention or lacing.

A wonderful combination of funk and tart in the nose with barnyard and raspberry notes pairing together. Unripe fruit and soft, but dark vinous notes.

Sour, yet fruity up front with plenty of juicy raspberry flavor. Funky barnyard tones with wheat and hay, followed by some soft backbone and Belgian yeast. The fruit sweetness is mild, but pairs well with the raspberry sourness. Finishes tart, funky and dry.

Medium body, higher carbonation, sticky and lingering on the tongue. Obviously this is another hit from Cantillon, and I feel like it's almost becoming difficult to distinguish which of Jean's beers are my favorites (other than Fou Foune).

Cork says it's bottled in 2013. Right after popping it you can smell some nice raspberries but also a weird lambic funk.
Nice shiny ruby pour, pink one finger head, lots of popping bubbles.
Smell is nice, with tart raspberries and lots of branyard funk. Smells really rustic, gets you in that atmosphere from just one whif.
Huge tartness from the first sip, lots of sour lemon zest, berries and green twigs. Very unique. Musty white grapes, like a very dry white wine. The raspberries get somehow mixed with wild strawberries and blackcurrant, a nice mix of forest fruit. Brett yeast, with huge amounts of barnyard, floorboard, green hay, green grass, earthiness. The finish is just pummeled with this funk, with a dry bitter finish in which the hops probably just add a bit of extra green leafiness.
Face cringing sour for some, but i love these aggressive sour beers. Medium carbonation, light body, again, just like a white wine. Very very dry.
My first Cantillon and already some others are on the way. Can't wait, love the way they do a lambic, not relying on the fruit but working on the great lambic part of their beers. I personally like the fact they didn't call it just a "framboise lambic", because it's actually quite far from one.

375 poured into tulip glass. Bottled 5/27/13, reviewed 4/9/14.

A: Pours a deep ruby color with a little over 2 fingers of white head. Bottle says to pour slowly so as not to disturb the yeast, so I poured slowly and I did not notice any sediment coming out. Head reduces somewhat slowly and leaves a thin layer on top that doesn't leave any lacing.
S: The aroma is a great blend of tartness with raspberries. Can't say enough how well this comes across on the nose.
T: I am very impressed with how well the raspberry holds up. There's a lot of fruity flavor, with a delicate tart balancing out the sweetness. Up front flavor is a bit funky, the further into each sip just gives way to the raspberry. Awesome.
M: Highly carbed, does not leave a dry after taste.
O: This is my first Cantillon (outside of small samples at bottle shares), and it is certainly a great experience. I wouldn't call myself a sour head by any means, but this is delicious. The good folks across the pond certainly know how to craft a great beer.

A: Fizzy, ruby colored juice with a touch of yellow that hints at the underlying beer.

S: Raspberry jam.

T: Slightly tart, big raspberry flavor. Some hints of green apples and lemon with a finish of crisp, grassy funk and a touch of bitterness.

M: Crisp.

O: My first Cantillon. While it isn't life changing, this is a legitimately great lambic.

on tap at hops and pie this morning. before i get to the beer, i should should shout out those folks for not only having this stuff, but putting on one of the smoothest rare beer tappings i have been a part of. i mean, small line, minimal attitude, not loud or pushy, not stupid expensive, just downright a damn good time in one of north denvers better beer establishments. the beer itself is always hard pressed to meet its hype, and while others from cantillon have met and exceeded it for me, this one did not. its epic beer, one of a kind, totally world class, through and through, but its not perfect.neon pale red, if such terms can coexist and not negate one another. not much head on a very fresh pour, if there was one, it didnt last even a minute, but wow is this color radiant! is smells fruity, but to me not specifically like raspberries. i get tartness before the fruit, certainly the fruit identification, but less of the heavy farmy weirdness like i got from lou pepe kriek. the fruit is dominant in the flavor, but its still a lambic first, which is what makes these beers great. bright fruit expressions with a touch of sugar, and yeasty tartness collide mid palate for me in a firework of intensity thats still soft around the edges, then i swallow and its dry, then my mouth flushes back again with all the beautiful layers. great carbonation, but there is a heaviness that hangs over this, maybe its sugar, maybe its the film on my palate, im not complaining of course, but its less refined than some of their others. i may get crucified for saying this, but atrial rubicite from jester king is the absolute champion of raspberry sours, bar none. i have not had the lou pepe framboise, which may be next level, but i as much as i loved both the beer and the experience this morning, it is no atrial rubicite.

Bottled November, 2013

Gorgeous color and clarity. Nothing more needs to be said.

Aroma opens with light funky characteristics. Raspberry comes more alive the longer it sits and opens. Not a lot of lactic acid which is nice because I do not like the acid to cover up any of the fainter nuances of the beer.

Flavor is ridiculous. It's like drinking sour raspberry purée. There is a subtle sweetness that I really like. Sourness is tame, which is another plus because it makes the beer much more palatable. I personally love this beer. I like the lower level of sourness.

So delicious. It is not INSANELY complex, but at the end of the day I enjoy drinking this with a plate of stinky, funky cheese more than just drinking it by itself and trying to decipher EVERY aspect.

Amazing beer and one of the best sours I've had.
