This was part of a 13 bottle horizontal tasting I did with #alexgrahamlv, #destral, #JSBerkowitz, and #nogidrew. It was a 2009 bottle and we drank it 12/9/2011

A- Poured a bright red color, vibrant.

S- Only real disappointment for me. Smelled more like acetone than fruit.

T- Fruit forward, but not over powering; could taste underlying sourness was and it was complimented by the tasrtness of the fruit

M- Mild carbonation and lingers on pallete for a short time

I've had this beer both very old and very young. Two years is the perfect age for it!

Poured from a pretty 12oz bottle corked and capped into an Ithaca Excelsior Tulip. There was a little bit of moisture between the cork and the cap. Cork pulled off with a very solid pop.

A: Crystal clear plum color. Gentle pour (as directed by the instructions on the bottle) lead to a fizzy 3-finger light-lavender head that dissipated to a gentle 1/4 finger layer that sticks. No lacing.

S: Sour funk, typical lambic nose with a hint of raspberry - not absent but not at all overpowering. It's the tartness of the raspberry that dominates the nose rather than the sweetness of it.

T: Deliciously tart raspberry mixed with some nice woody undertones and the beautiful yeasty funk that comes along with any world class lambic. This one is no different. It's not overly complex but that's the beauty of it. Very very good.

M: Lighter body, wonderfully carbonated. Not as dry or crisp of a finish as I was looking for but not far off either.

O: A really delicious beer. The only disappointment is the mouthfeel and that's not really that big of a deal in this case because everything else in this beer is superb. This is my introduction to Cantillon and it's a dandy.

Had this beer a few months back with a nice dinner. Reviewing from notes scribbled down later on. Was a 2010 750ml

This beer pours a nice red color with a fairly thin white head that dissipated rather quickly. The smell is slightly funky with a definite raspberry tartness to it. There are also some hints of lemon in there. The flavor is wonderful, nice ripe raspberry flavor that is quickly whisked away by a nice sourness and slight funk. The mouthfeel is light with good carbonation and a good bite to it. Overall this beer is excellent and I can understand why cantillon in general is becoming harder to find stateside. Hopefully they are able to furor expand in the future and send more of their wonderful beers to the US

Served on draught into 20cl stemware at the Mikkeller Bar in Copenhagen. Reviewed from notes. Cost was 35 DKK.

A: Pours a two finger head of nice soft cream, slight pinkish hue, fair thickness, and average retention. Colour is a solid dark red.

Sm: Raspberry, souring hops, cream, and bacteria. Yeast. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Souring hops, bacteria, heavy raspberry, and light cream undertones. I love the raspberry. Very complex and well-executed. An excellent build for the style, but of course it's cantillon. Very well - perhaps perfectly - balanced.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Extremely complementary of the flavours.

Dr: Extremely drinkable, very high quality, and priced highly. Definitely worth a go, even if you don't usually like lambics.

- 2014 vintage
- Off tap @ Beachwood (LBC) on 7-Nov-14
- Tasted off 10 oz. pour into a wheat beer glass

The raspberry fruity-ness was much more prominent here. Not sure whether I enjoy this off tap fresh than an aged bottle that I've had.

Big thanks to Homebrew311 for sharing this bottle!

What justice: This was the last bottle of the tasting, after I was denied a bottle at the bar we went to beforehand (they were out). Nice. It pours a mostly clear russet topped by a finger of relatively short-lived off-white foam. The nose comprises strawberry, raspberry, and a light bit of Brett-inspired funk. The taste brings in more of the same, along with more tart raspberry and some additional tart cherry. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a very dry, sticky finish. Overall, a highly enjoyable lambic. 'Nuff said, frankly.

Pours a deep red tinge with a big pink head that fades pretty quickly.

Smell is dominated by raspberries, cherries and a little bit of funk.

The first sip is greeted with an intense sourness of unripe fruits. A little bit of oak, earthy funk and berries are present and it finishes very sour again with some raspberry notes.

Generous carbonation and decent mouthfeel.

Not my favorite from Cantillon, but still nice for an easier acceptable sour.
