Bottled on 3/21/11

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Deschutes tulip.

A: Pours a very nice clear ruby red color. 1.5 fingers of frothy pink head that dissapates quickly but never fully leaves. No lacing.

S: Yeasty funkiness mixed with tart raspberry. Some oak in there as well.

T: The yeasty funkiness comes out up front. Tart raspberries and a good amount of oak tannins on the back end. Finishes bone dry.

M: Moderate body with moderate to high carbonation. Slightly fizzy and soft.

Overall this beer is very enjoyable! All the flavors work well together here. Nice blend of funk, tart and oak.

Deep red colour, collar of white head sits on top, no lace of any kind to speak of. Smell is full of barnyard notes at first, tart raspberry, wild yeast, balsamic/acidy notes, as it warmed the fruit was more obvious and lightly jammy smelling. Taste is of tart berry, musty barn flavours, moderately sour, puckering finish, light sweetness followed by dry cider like flavours. Fairly high carbonation, medium body, nice dry feel. This was quite nice, enjoyed the kriek more but this was quite drinkable, great flavours and solid throughout.

A: Dark pink in color with a foamy light pink head that settles down pretty quickly.

S: One of the best smelling beers I've ever come across. Huge notes of sour red raspberries and red currants along with a healthy dose of funk/wet horse blanket. A hint of oak as well.

T: Really great stuff. A big hit of tartness/sourness right away. A bit of raspberry as well as some red wine vinegar. Mouthfeel is crisp and light and very refreshing. I could drink this beer all day. I would love to have some more of this.

Bottled on October 12th, 2011. Tasted on January 3rd, 2012. Bought directly from the brewery in december 2011.

The color is dark pink almost red. The head is pink, however it disappear quickly. The aroma is strawberries and some lambic notes in the back. Typical lambic notes from Cantillon. Nice aroma. Taste is pretty acid... way too acid. I should have let this one sit a little bit maybe. It isn't bad, but it is not the best from Cantillon. Quite watery in the mouth. Overall, a nice beer. Out of this world in regards to strawberry lambic. Nicely done.

Lot 05/08 750ml Bottled Jan 2010. Drank March 2011

Poured into a set of glasses. A clear bright ruby with a thick bubbly pink head which soon diminished to a ring. Pretty good lacing.

Sour mild barnyard smells. Some floral fruity hints. Mild barnyard up front in the taste. Gives way to a mild floral fruit. Leather and wood are some of the tastes that rise above the sour base. A sour funky finish. Very interesting. Kind of like a fruity gueuze.

Light, tart, refreshing. A top rated Cantillon in my book. Drinkability is very good.
