reviewed from notes. On cask at Teresa's Next Door day after sourfest.

Pours a crazy purple color, similar to the label on Welch's grape jelly. Immediately, it makes you question whether it's beer. No head, but visible carbonation bubbles line the bottom of the glass. Smell is quite clean. Hints of wild yeast, but in no way as powerful as most lambics and particularly weak for a Cantillon. The taste is smooth, almost like a perfect blend of wine and lambic. Grape comes through as well as the wild yeast. Sour, but not the typical puckering that comes from the top lambics. Very light bodied. Wonderful lambic particularly if you want something more mellow and smooth. This is one even a none-lambic drinker could get on board with. Tremendous.

Cask at Teresa's Next Door.

Pours a dark purple/plum color with burgundy/blood red edges when held to a light. Completely opaque with a half finger off-white head that immediately fades leaving no lace behind.

Sweet vinous aroma with a very prominent dark fruit/red wine character. Nice earthy funk with subtle barnyard horsey notes and a prominent earthy oak barrel presence. Bursting with dark fruit, especially grape, as well as some currant and dark cherry.

Full bodied with a tart, mouth puckering sourness that lingers throughout over the sweet vinous and funky barnyard notes into a sweet, slightly dry finish. Bursting with vinous dark fruit, especially the grapes. A perfect marriage of wine and beer. Slight acidity in the finish with a lingering acetic vinegar presence that leaves me drooling for more. This beer is incredibly quaffable considering how funky it is. Perfectly balanced.

On hand pump at tnd for sour fest.

A- a small fizzle around the edges upon arrival that diminishes very quickly to a mirror finish. Beautiful glowing magenta in color with surprising clarity.

S- grape flavored fruit roll ups in a good way and a good sour and funk behind. More subtle then some I've had but very clean.

T- red grapes with lots of the must that rolls into a nice funky sour hit. Oak is mellow but lends a nice complexity to the whole. On the sweeter side with the very ripe grapes really stealing the show. There's some lemon juice in the mixed with the tartness.

M- about medium in body and very lightly carbed but its is of the hand pump and there's still a good bit of bite to it. Very tannic and dry, you can feel the grape must on the palate.

O- this is an excellent lambic and on cask its a dream. Glad to have had it this way and can't wait till the next time. Not as sour as some but very complex and at the same time very easy to enjoy even quaffable.

The day before I tried this (6-11-2007), I had to do the heimlich on someone who was choking. They got to live (and gave me a few $$ for beer because we talked about my love for it) and I got to try Saint Lamvinus on cask. Life is beautiful.

On cask at Spuyten Duyvil in Brooklyn for their special event for lambics and brett beers.

I have reviewed this before on the bottle. So forgive me if I don't get too detailed with the review and choose to just enjoy it a bit more without thinking too much.

Pours a clouded ruby red. A small ring of white head lines the top of the glass. Nose is straight up lambic funk. Taste brings the funk still. Mild sour attributes. At least I think they are milder than they were on the bottle. I am not sure if the cask has something to do with the rounding out of that, but who cares. There it is. Mild sweet tones off fruit and grapes. Obvious, but still slightly subdued grape characteristics there. Oh to hell with it. As you can see from my scores, I think this is as good on cask as it is from the bottles. A joy to be able to have on this special occassion. I'm sorry you weren't there to be able to enjoy it with me.

I could not believe it when I saw that this was on cask last ngiht at the moan and dove in amherst. I usually can't really handle the sour cantillon beers because of their acidity, but this was too good an oppurtunity to pass up. I poured a beautiful red rasberry color into a glass that resembled one used for champagne. No head on this one really. Smell definitely had that baryard funk found in most Cantillon beers, with some sweet tart smells going on as well. First taste was huge on the sour notes. The second sip however, revealed a circus of fruit lying behind the initial sour notes. I think the fact that it was cask conditioned may have mellowed some of the sourness of it a bit. Mouthfeel was simply awesome....the more you let it swish around the mouth, the more intense flavors you get. One glass was enough for me...I would have liked more, but I didn't want intense heartburn, so I switched to something else. Simply a delightful beer. I'm not sure I would shell out the forty bucks for it, but who knows. Well done Cantillon.

The beer comes in a dark crimson purple color. Almost like a watered down red wine.

The aroma has tart red grape skins, berry notes. Some musty funk and barnyard. A good combination of red wine, fruit, oak, and funk. Reminds me slightly of the Kriek.

The flavor follows with that big tartness in the front. Tons of red grape peel and berry skin. It then follows into that funk and oak notes.

The fruit is slightly less obvious in this. A wonderful drinking lambic.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at jmgrub's tasting.

2010 vintage.

Pours a hazy orange-red with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, grape, fruit, funk, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, grape, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is quite sour but refreshing to drink.

750ml bottle – NYC bottle share with mdfb79. Huge thanks to Dan and his bro for cracking this one!
12/12/13 – Served in a Duvel tulip glass

A: Pours a sparkling cranberry body with some pinkish and purple tones to it. Light murkiness to the beer. Good half finger width or so of sudsy froth. Khaki soap look with some very active carbonation and light swaths of lace sticking to the glass.

S: Smells primarily of lightly soured red grape skins with a soft backing of tart raspberry. Vinous and mildly acidic with some balsamic notes. Musky earth and oak rounds out the nose. Not incredibly potent but has a nice red wine quality to it.

T: Red grape and wild berry come together much like a Rosado wine. Raspberry permeates throughout complimented by a nice puckering tartness. Fairly sour yet balanced with a modest amount of acidity. The approach is pretty flawless. No vinegar bomb here. The beer is very light and dried out by some oaky tannins. Touch of lactic funkiness there with some earthy mineral water. Nothing I would call barnyard or horsey. Any alcohol flavor is completely masked. Impressively crafted. Delicate and light with an aggressive tart and sour quality.

M: Very light in body with a high amount of spritzy carbonation on the palate. Fair amount of puckering tang. Light astringency and very dry with a nice crisp at the finish.

D: I don’t have a ton of experience with Lambics at this point but this is one is undeniably superior. Has a natural soda feel with a great balance of flavors. Delicate yet tart and mildly sour. Unlike any beer I have had before.
A real treat and one that I will only come to appreciate more with time.

750ml bottle procured at the brewery. 21 November 2012 indicated on the label. Pours a beautiful garnet hue with an effervescent,white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is somewhat subdued - tart, suggestions of cork and acetic acid. Taste is a bit musty with grape skins, cranberry and tannins. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a carbonation just shy of lively and a dry finish. Overall, not my favorite offering from Cantillon (I anticipated a little more fruit); however, a wonderful lambic nonetheless.

Poured from a 25 oz bottle into a Cantillon tulip glass. Purchased at Wakefield Liquors in Wakefield, RI. Opened while on vacation in North Conway, NH!

A- Pours a hazy, raspberry colored body with a 2 finger, fizzy, light cherry colored head that reduces really quickly and leaves no lacing or retention.

S- Tart sour grapes, funky barnyard, red wine, cherries, citric acid, acetic acid, oak, and an old mustiness that blends very nicely with these aromas.

T- Starts off pretty tart, but not sour, with dry fruity notes, specifically grapes, cherry skins, and citrus rind. The follow through is subtly funky with fermented fruit and oak, wine barrel notes. The finish is woody and tart. Very nice

M- High carbonation, refreshing and quenching.

St. Lamvinus was awesome but I wasn't expecting anything less of this Cantillon masterpiece. Glad I got to try it, can't wait to try the other one in my cellar in a couple decades ;)

Beer pours ruby read and is brilliant. A slight head soon disappears after the beer has been poured.

Aroma is of fruit and funk. Not incredibly complicated and it is very acetic in aroma.

The beer has notes of grapes and fruit. It is very effervescent and it tickles your tongue.

Mouthfeel is typical for a sour beer.

Overall a tasty beer, the acidity is sharp and like vinegar and the funk really increases as it warms. Crisp, Acidic, Fruity, Brite.

2010 Bottle

A - Bright red with a burgundy red color. Clear warm body that looks like liquor. White head that sits on the edges

S - Tart lambic with gueuze like sourness, light blue cheese funk, red wine, tannis, and grape skins

T - Tart lemon peel and lambic up front. Blue cheese, funk and really light red wine presence in the middle. Tart cherry near the back end with war head tartness and light oak to it

M - Tart with a dry finish to it with a slight juiciness from the wine.

O - This is another solid lambic from Cantillon but it's not my favorite one. The wine is there and add some nice presence but it is a bit overdrawn but the tartness and is lacking on the funk. All of that said it is still great just not one of my favorite.

Served in a tumbler.

What awesome timing, having a grape-imbued lambic while standing next to a wine connoisseur. Regardless, this stuff pours a lightly-hazy fuchsia topped by over a finger of pink-ish foam. The nose comprises tart blue raspberry, light sour cherry, sour grape, a hint of grapefruit zest, and a light smattering of funk. The taste brings in more of the same, with everything showing off some powerful sour chops. This is kept in partial check, though, by the funk, which, though relatively mild in its individual expression, also blends in nicely with its acidic surroundings. The grape character is pronounced, but not overt. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, sticky finish. Overall, another damn fine fruited lambic from Cantillon, one of the highlights of a night that included quite a few ridiculous sours of various styles. And I'm happy to say that the aforementioned wine aficionado was also impressed by this offering. I was not surprised.

Thanks to egrace84 for sharing this bottle!

Vintage 2010.

Poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: medium purple bodied beer with a reddish hue. 2 fingers of white head with a purplish tint. Drops down to a a thin cap and eventually no head.

Smell: Mildly tart grapes. Moderately funky and its that trademark cantillion funk. Simple yet awesome nose on this beer!

Taste: Funk forward with a mild almost moderate sourness. I would say about a 3.75 - 4 out of 10. Nice red grape flavor without tasting like a wine. I think that the beer has just the right ratio of funkiness to fruity flavors of red grapes. Very nice!

Mouthfeel: On the high end of a light bodied beer; almost medium bodied. Carbonation is on the low end of moderate. Really smooth drinking sour. Just a touch on dryness that right where it should be.

Overall: This is the probably the best grape sour that I have drank. I was very pleasantly surprised by this beer.

Bottle courtesy of MrKennedy and alos shared with Spicelab

A - moderate deep raspberry-juice pink, effervescent head.

S - tart, funk

T - really quite sour and puckering on first taste, but once the taste buds settled. back into Cantillon-std sourness. Then add hints of tinned raspberries (without their sweetness) into a complex vinous palate.

M - lively, zesty, refreshing.

O - yep, another great Cantillon. Difficult to write about these, similar in so many ways. And I know the bottle states serve warmer, but I prefer colder...

Poured from the bottle at Churchkey DC into a snifter glass.

Deep solid cherry colored body, orb glowing, with a little hint of pink throughout. Slight pink collar and thin ring presented. Looks like a jewel.

Fantastic bouquet on the beer. Great notes of light sweetness of cherry, bright funk and dry peppery action. Good chewy sense of malt (wheat?), subtle and balanced, with a nice effervescent and clean quality. This looks like something good.

Palate comes with a great champagne crispness but a decent malt depth to carry forward. Carbonated pepper and mild sourness. Tart fruit action of red raspberry and cherry, with subtle aromatics. Tastes like dusted funky fruit in a bowl, and champagne.

Overall a subtle yeast funk character and chewy texture to match with floating funky red fruit in a champagne glass. But it's beer. It's a winner and one of the most enjoyable Cantillon beers I've had.

2011 Bottling. Tasted out of toulip wine glasses at home with a friend. I can't imagine the fruit would last with age...it would be interesting to see how these age and what happens in time.

Color: Brickish Ruby

Smell: Earth, forest floor, yeast, sour cherries

Taste: Sour blueberries, cherries, orange rinds, and hints of floral notes.

Overall: Outstanding. A beer that demands thought and attention.

Sharing this special beer with my special lady...and Kevin ;)
2012 bottling (bottle date is 11/21/12, ABV is 5%)

Pour is magenta red that gets darker and murkier with each pour. Pink head becomes a thick ring. Nice colors.

Smell is great, berry and red grape is somewhat tame but there at a good and noticeable level. Lemon, feety funk and oak, nice mixture overall.

The fruit in the taste is lighter, but mostly gives off notes of tart red and green grapes and lemons. Funk, farmy earthiness, farm and oak are a bit more powerful but it is all kept at a nicely subtle level, making this more easy-drinking than your average Cantillon.

Smooth and well-carbonated, nice amount of puckering tartness while still remaining very drinkable.

The first time I had this I wasn't as impressed, it comes off as maybe a bit too subtle, but this really is one of better Cantillons I've had. Love the drinkability and the fruit/funk balance.

Huge thanks to Kevin R for bringing this to our tasting - Cantillon is always a treat. Saint Lamvinus pours like a garden of rubies with indigo hints. Good clarity all around, with a pink tinted head that makes no attempt to be quiet as it fizzles and eventually fades into nothing put a lavender collar around the crimson brew.

Cantillon's brewery is crawling with critters and they are some of the best critters in the world. You can pick these critters out of any line-up if you have even a semi-functional nose. Funky barnyard, musky cork, sweaty articles of expensive clothing, and a trifecta of dirt, earth, and must. Often imitated, never duplicated - no one does funk like this.

Vinous are present as well, like this was a well aged Cheval Blanc; dripping-wet oak barrels, sour grapes, wine-like acidity, and hints of vinegar in the back end. Grape, tannin, grape, tannin, sour, sour, funky, funky. The nose on this is simply beautiful; As with most Cantillon, I'm having a hard time getting my nose away from the glass long enough to take a sip.

One sip and Cantillon drops it heavy like Saint Lamvinus was Skrillex and grapes were the bass. Boom! A vinous explosion on the palate; tart, sour grapes, mild and bitter acidity, faint cherry skins, heaps of woody oak, and the funk of one thousand barnyard floors. Horse, cork, hay, sweaty feet, and grapes like you wouldn't believe.

Saint Lamvinus masters the art of making a beer that resembles a wine while keeping it accessible to people (like myself) who actually are not big fans of wine. It's that mouth clenching, ass puckering sourness, that stomach ripping acidity, and that nostril curling funk. Effervescence is big; plenty of carbonation with a fading, ghostly mouth feel and a sharp, dry finish.

Cantillon does it again, and I can't say that I'm surprised. These are the beers you hear about when you first start getting into craft beer. All your buds talk about this "Cantillon" place like it's some kind of holy grail for beer, and eventually months and months go by and you finally get to try one, and all of a sudden you're talking about it like you're some kind of sour expert. This shit is excellent; why does it have to be so far from me?

Saint Lamnivus.

Crimson red with good clarity. Left the bottom third in the glass.

Musty grape and grape must with a high note of tartness, funky Brett-y-ness, and vinous notes. So ripe, yet tart. Unreal complexity. Oak, lemon rind, wet hay, and sweaty sock.

Super-serious. Sour, but not rifingly so. A bounty of red wine grape, lemon peel, stale bread heel, black currant, wet hay, and a finish of perky spice and wet sock funk. So palatably delicious and somewhat smooth and held together. So refined. Musty and funky and sour. Great feel from the carbonation, which isn't too much. So good.

Thank you, ChurchKey. Made MY D.C. experience!

Poured form a 75 cl bottle into a Cantillon chalice

I'm going to be honest, I'm not great at describing beers. But this one is amazing. It's one of my all time favorite beers. My absolute favorite in its style. If you're familiar with Cantillon, think the Zwanze, but more red wine, particularly a right bank Bordeaux, than white wine. Perhaps the reason I love this so much is that it is a perfect blend of Bordeaux and lambic. I've had almost every kind of Cantillon beer and loved them all. They are fantastic in different ways. But this is the one they really got right.

One hell of a beer, especially if you moonlight as wine snob.
