Review #500

750ml bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip, Batch 2008.

A - Pours a dark, ruby red with a nice light pink fluffy head. Good retention.

S - Tart cherry, slight funk. I was expecting more tartness.

T - Cherry, raspberry, some nice barnyard funk. Very nicely blanced.

D - Not overly sweet or tart, a nice balance. Good carbonation and average body.

O - Maybe a bit of a let down, just due to my own hype. Overall very nice.

Serving type: bottle

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

on-tap, brouwers

appearance: short-pour in an unbranded snifter during the big wood festival, bright cherry-red body, fluffy pinkish-white head

smell: lots of red cherry, vinegar, nice tartness, earthy

taste: seems like the standard cantillon kriek is a bit oakier/tarter while the lou pepe delivers a bigger dose of cherry and balsamic - moderate tartness, lots of funky and earthy flavors - cherry skin, wood, berry, red wine

mouthfeel: a bit acidic, light carbonation, moderate tartness

overall: not a weakness in the cantillon arsenal

Serving type: on-tap

Shared by Sarro at our recent Holiday tasting.

A: Beautiful cherry red. Some white head present.

S: Strong sour acidic notes.

T: Sour cherry flavors upfront followed by some funkiness, as expected. Not overly sour. The sour and sweetness of this one are very well intertwined.

M: Medium body. Well carbonated. Champagne-like dryness.

O: A great lambic. Very glad to get to try another great Cantillon. I wish their beer was still distributed to MI.

750ml bottle corked and capped poured into wine glass 3/11/11

A pinkish burgundy with a decent carbonation and a short lived pink head that leaves no lace

S tart and sour with a little sweet cherry, with some funk and jolly rancher and cough syrup

T no sweet cherry like I could smell, quite acidic and a little more funk then the nose, the jolly rancher and cough syrup are not as strong, very dry finish, it has a earthy woody thing going for it too, pretty complex stuff

M more bubbles then expected very sour, has quite the pucker too it, leaves a fair bit behind in the mouth

O another step down my road to sourville, pretty bang on from what I've had in the past, big sour notes and not as muck funk as i expected but I'm wondering if that changes with age

I grabbed another pair of these for long term aging and I'm curious to what will happen. Pretty easy too break the bank on this stuff but I just had too try it
