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.

Ultra rare 37,5 cl bottle. Ha, ha, ha! Taste the rareness....

A: dull, oxidized purple color. Forms a small, faintly purple tinted whitish head. Little retention. No lacing.

S: bright and acidic with strong grape skin notes. Smells like a fermented Concorde grape juice.

T: taste is similar, that is it tastes like fermented Concorde grape juice. Vinous, but distinct from wine itself. Moderately tart, mildly acidic, grapy tannins. Getting a lot of grape skins. Finishes with a mild astringency.

M: medium bodied, tart, mild astringency.

O: a nice beer.

A birthday bottle for my wife that I chose on a whim, a bit pricey but the occasion warranted it. I figured that she loves lambics & wine, so....The bottle poured a brighter than expected purple with pink edges to a light pink head that dissipated quickly & left a wee amount of lace afterwards. The aroma had a sour vinegar and wine-soaked cloth quality. The flavor definitely evokes the merlot, but is more complex as it shifts in even one sip from a tart & sweet cherry to vinegar sour and then changes to a flat but bright, crisp wine. The body is light, bubbly and easy to drink. A very interesting beer, but definitely worth it.

2007 vintage. When I popped the cap the cork had a purple wet residue all over it. The cork was wet and soggy and broke apart when opening.

It poured a nice purple-lavender color that was very hazy with sediment floating around. It had an off white head that did not stick around. Nice oily legs.

It was an okay smell, a smell that filled my nostrils with very specific wine grape, sour fruit, and a little wet dog. It has been about three years since this thing was made so I imagine the smells have declined a bit.

It had a great taste, a very strong vinous flavor that paired well with the funky flavor that only Cantillon can capture. Specific grapes were tasted in this, it had a very bold flavor that was very enjoyable. It was less astringent then expected, but still 'juicy' like the 2009 Fou Foune I had a while back. Even with this many years on this bottle it still captures a great fruit flavor.

Very good Cantillon fruit beer, but I think I enjoy Fou Foune a great deal more. I need to try a more recent vintage in order to get the full experience.

On tap at City Beer Store - SF.

A - The beer was delivered in a 7oz flute and had a nice medium purple color to it.  Kind of what I would expect grape soda to look like.  Nice thin head topped the flute with a whispy witenagemot head.  The head fell quickly leaving behind no trace of lacing.

S - Definitely not the strong point of this beer.  It was very earthy, almost too earthy to the point of smelling like poop.  No kidding!  I had 4 ba's with me and they all agreed.  There was a definite sour funk present but the poop was strong with this beer.

T - The taste thankfully didn't reflect the aroma.  Nice vinous tartness.  Super tart.  There was also a very present earthy flavor that although similar to the smell was not off-putting.  I really enjoyed the flavor.

M - Super crisp, dry and refreshing.  Excellent spiky carbonation.  Like most Cantillon's this was a very well balanced and crafted beer.

O - Overall this was a great treat.  I was amped to see this on the tap list.  At $10 for a 7 oz pour it was a bit spendy, but it was a luxury that I would try again.

Very very good looking pink, almost purple with excellent head retention. A bitter, sweet and tart aroma with loads of funk. Still soft, and hints of grain once in a while. Tastes slightly sweet, very tart with pronounced grape at the end. Strong mouthfeel and good carbonation.

I had it on draft at Capone's in Norristown, PA. It poured a strawberry-red color, and while it looked thick, the texture was fine and smooth. The tangy grapefruit flavor prevents it from going down smooth, however. The sourness forces you to hold it in your mouth and that's when other flavors become apparent. I tasted some light berry and grape notes that gave a slight sweetness to balance the sour. The smell is not sweet, as it had a strong, funky barnyard odor. This is not a fruity beer for framboise fans. This one is perfect for Cantillon and geuze fanatics. Let it warm up and the flavor will be very enjoyable.

Served in a tulip glass at Map Room 3/3/07.

A: Hazy, dark cranberry juice red. Tiny, bubbly, pink head that recedes to a faint skim and unbreakable ring.

S: Pleasant aromas of tart fruit and red wine.

T: Tart and bitter fruit, with a healthy helping of red wine flavors. Lurking in the background is a smooth malt backbone that acts to balance out the pucker inducing tartness and holds it all together.

M: Effervescent, tart, thin, and bitter. How lambics should feel.

D: Allow this to come up to temp and just have a grand old time sipping on this. Awesome!

Thank you to Olieipa for opening this on friday. review from notes.

poured into brewery tulip at just below cellar temp. a burgundy/purple pour with a half finger of lavender head. that falls flat leaving a slim layer of haze on the top. some splotchy lacing but only a bit.

smell is a combination of musky wood, cork and leaves, slight wisps of sour grapes. at first the smell is off putting but as i continue to leave my nose in it and let it warm a bit i like the smell more and more.

taste has a slight pucker enough to be enjoyed but not slap you in the teeth sour. the grapes really come into play here. sweet and smooth. i could have sworn that i got a oaky hint here and there but it might just be my palate playing tricks. a nice go between of beer and wine. I would definitely use this to bridge the gap between wine drinkers into craft beer.

overall I am very glad I had the chance to try this and would not mind trying it again. Thanks again mike.

Sampled a 6 oz. pour at Brett Fest at Spuyten Duyvil in Brooklyn, NY in August 2009.

A: The best feature of this beer. Looks like cranberry juice, yet tastes a whole lot better.

S: Strong, flowery champagne-esque aroma.

T: Sharp and bitter, yet fruity at the same time.

M: Light on the tongue with little to no carbonation.

D: One of the defining characteristics of this beer. Can definitely drink the whole 750ml bottle in one sitting.

Overall, a solid offering from Cantillon and a neat one to have tried on tap.

GLASS: Tulip
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 55 degrees
BOTTLED: 2007

This one pours a lovely, pink garnet, color. It has some very nice ruby red tinting. The two-finger head of loose foam has a pink cast to it. The retention is okay overall, but good for the style. Lacing is minimal, but has a touch of stickiness to it.

A very light amount of barnyard funk is noticed. What stands out though, is the presence of red grapes. The sweetness of the meats, along with the tang of the skins. A mild swirl brings out a burst of oakiness.
This smells very fruity and inviting.

This is quite a tasty beverage. It absolutely has a certain touch of 'wine-ness' to it. The merlot grapes are very flavorful. There is a nice amount of funk going on, but it comes across as very balanced. There is definitely a touch of tangy sourness to it, which combined with the oak notes and the merlot grapes, make this one finish very dry.

The body is medium, closing in on full. The carbonation level is high. It has a very sharp and crisp feel to it.

The low abv (5%) lends itself to easy-drinking. The acidity level though, would probably lend itself to heartburn. It's very tasty and to those who like sours, in general, it's delicious and very consumable.

Pours a nice reddish pink. A bit of nice white head. Looks very pretty. Smells like damp dog. Funky and sour. A hint of grape. Tastes grape heavy. Very tart and acidic. A bit harsh and abrasive and burns on the throat. But it's a nice flavour profile. Overall highly carbonated but very nice.

On tap at the Armsby Abbey

Beautiful light red appearance with a pink champagne-esque head that dissipated rather quickly. Looks very inviting.

The nose was funky to be sure, as expected. However, I got a very unpleasant smell that I can only associate with used diapers. Sounds horrible, and it kind of was. Unpleasant for me, and I don't really mind barnyard smell usually. Smell faded after a while but it really got me off the bat.

Tasted fantastic. Great Cantillon taste with oak and grape notes sprinkled throughout. Absolutely delicious and the nose didn't translate at all into the taste! (Thankfully)

Mouthfeel was as great. Good carbonation, though fleeting. Acid notes from the bacterium. Very pleasant.

Overall: Definitely recommend this beer. Gotta love Cantillon! The only thing that really threw me was the smell, it was unusually unpleasant!

Minor Edit: The nose didn't put me off from getting 2 pours of this. Just sayin'.

on-tap at deep ellum during the cantillon/de la senne event on april 24, 2009, week's end of the craft brewers conference.

served in the nifty, klokk roeland-branded, stemless snifter

cranberry color. slight haze. wispy layer fades to just ring. pink lacing always slides back down, but is quite pretty to look at between each sip.

aroma: nice funkiness peeks in, punctuating the fruity grape and vinegar tones

taste: woody notes. tart grapes, mild funk and vinegar. acidic and dry finish.

light to medium body, with tart acidic texture. nice light tingle of carbonation lifts everything off the tongue.

aroma and flavors are actually not as complex as the bottle. but the carbonation here seems to be more delicate. the unique snifter glass really helps with the presentation as well.

"Take away the wine for restlessness plagues me." - Cradle of Filth

Eggplant tinged ruby red color. Thin rose colored head sputters itself out quickly. Nice color though and not atypically lacking in retention for the style.

Aroma is phenomenal. Musty wine barrel and balsamic vinaigrette complexity. I feel like I can smell the earth where the grapes where grown and sniff each drop off rainfall that kissed the vines.

But I don't. Taste is funky grape sour, with what I can only think of as a taste of...um, antiquity. If I had a better grasp on lambics I'd try to delve deeper. But I don't.

From my rootin' tootin', down home malt and hops beer heart this is more wine than beer. So far my exploratory journey through gueze and lambic land has been interesting. Not sure its for me but I think this particular blend may be the turning point.

I've had this bottle for a while now, figured it was time to drink it. Bottled in late 2009.

Appearance: Pours a somewhat hazy rose color with a couple fingers of light pink head. Retention is very nice, lacing is limited, and it has a fair amount of carbonation. Nice looking lambic.

Smell: Lots of musty funk, some definite lactic sour notes, and some light grape-y notes.

Taste: Lactic sourness and funk hits fairly hard up front, followed by some slightly sweeter grape fruitiness. That doesn't last too long as some more tartness and funk comes through on the finish. Not really bracingly sour at this point, but a pretty nice balance.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied and lively from the carbonation. Very nice feel in the mouth. Overall, I enjoyed this bottle quite a bit. Glad I have another one coming my way so I can really let it age and see how sour it can get.

750 mL bottle poured into a tulip. Bottle dated 11/21/2010, I believe. Tough to read as it's smudged.

Appearance - Murky/hazy pinkish purple. Not quite a burgundy. The head is gone before I even get a chance to look at it.

Smell - Acidic and musty grape smell. The fruit isn't a bright aroma, but rather a general aura of grape surrounding the lemongrass and other lambic aromas.

Taste - Sour, but not overly so. The grape flavor again isn't bright, but more of a background flavor cutting some of the acidity. Oak and tannins dry it out in the finish, but there's a deep musty character in the finish that comes across as a deep barnyard funk.

Mouthfeel - Heavyish, even though it really isn't. Lower carbonation. Drinks like a wine.

Overall - Not the most amazing fruit flavor I've had in a lambic, but it certainly doesn't detract from the beer. I feel as though the Cantillon lambic profile calls for lighter fruits, a la Fou Foune.

Beautiful pour. A light, clear purple, with a slightly rosy head that reduces nicely, leaving a bubbly film on top.

Smell is a mix of grape, merlot, and pretty strong barnyard funk, kind of haylike, and maybe a slight, slight hint of a manure-like smell? That makes it sound unpleasant, but it actually wasn't. What was a little disappointing was how sweet the grape smell was. Kind of reminded me of the over-sweetened grape juice I drank as a kid. Overall a nice smell, but the sweetness definitely loses it points.

Taste is much better. The barnyard character is toned down a bit, and the grape isn't as sweet. What sweetness there is balances the tartness nicely.There's some oak, some wine flavors, some tart red grape, a bit of the barnyard hay flavors, maybe a hint of lemon. Really excellent.

I've loved the mouthfeel on all cantillon beers so far, and this is no exception. On the lighter side of medium, dry, great carbonation, super smooth. What a delight.

Excellent beer. The smell is the weak point and it's still great, and the taste is just wonderful. Great balance of sweetness and tartness, with a healthy dose of funk. Very drinkable, great with friends.

The beer poured into the chalice a crystal clear rose with a white and very low yet persistant head which laced the glass.

The aroma was very much lambic with a distinct acetic sourness and some rubbery phenolic aromatics. The aroma was fruity with light grapeskin and seeds. The barnyard aroma was mostly sweaty and oaky with some bad cheese thrown in for good measure.

The flavor was sour but not overly so. The flavor dried quickly on the palate leaving a distinct grape flavoring. The flavor also contained a grape skin and grape seed flavor that were neither overdone. The flavor also contained some mishandled cheese flavors that melded well with the other flavors.

The finish was dry with lasting grape and sour flavors long into the aftertaste. The body was medium and fine.

A very expensive beer for no more complexity than it exibited. Based upon the reviews this beer had garnered I expected more. The place where this beer excelled was drinkability. In no other aspect could I take it beyond good.

750 ml corked and capped bottle. Bottled in 2003 on the cork. Above and on the cork was some thick brown liquid. Purchased at Green's in Atlanta, GA for $28.75. Most expensive single bottle of beer I ever purchased. Perhaps it should be sampled fresher, but without ripping off the foil, there was no way to know the age till the top is popped and the cork was extracted.

On-tap at 2007 Max's 72 Hours of Belgium

Hazy, ruby red grapefruit juice in appearance. Small, pink tinted, otherwise off white head.

Hard to get aroma in bar, but Belgian funk and sour cherries came through pretty well.

Taste was TART! Cherries and some other fruits. Bit of sweetness hiding in the middle. Floral notes at end.

Light to medium in mouthfeel. Fairly strong carbonation. Very drying.

Second try at the lambic style, and quite drinkable for a hop-head. I enjoyed it, and it was even better with my lunch (mussels). I am going to have to explore this style a bit more.

Bottle dated 2004

Pours an interesting mixture of colors. Seemingly pale red, or dark pink, with some deep amber hues as well. No real head on the initial pour, but a thin bubbley coating resides on top of the beer.

The aroma is incredible. Quite pungent. Big notes of Brett, making your mouth water just from the suggestion of tartness. Some tones of oak, slightly vinous, and slightly floral as well. A little bite to it as well.

Taste is fantastic. Not nearly as sour as I had assumed, but quite tart indeed. Some vinous qualities, light and refreshing berry. A nice tartness with a touch of the oak. Just tremendous and quite impressive.

Mouthfeel is just shy of medium bodied, and carbonation is almost nonexistent.

Drinkability is insanely high for the type of beer this is. Alcohol is low making for easier consumption, but the flavor is quite good and the tartness is not overwhelming. Makes for quite an experience. I much prefer this to say Cantillon Iris.

Popped the cork - it tried to break on me, but I got it out without incident. Vintage 2007 per cork. Poured into a Rochefort chalice a beautiful violet, perfectly appropriate for a red grape lambic. Some bubbles, but not overwhelmingly fizzy.

Aroma is not too different from a Lou Pepe Kriek or Framboise. Green viney aroma with some cherry and wood - indeed, I think this smells like an Oude Kriek rather than a grape lambic. Doesn't smell as much like a glass of Merlot as I thought it might...which I suppose makes sense as this is half the ABV of a typical Merlot so you're not getting the full-bore aromatic intensity of a wine.

Wow, now this is what I was after. Quite vinous on the palate. Very woody, definite tannic presence. High acidity - high sourness. Very, very sour, and bone-dry on the finish.

Feel is spritzy, like a wine cooler, only far better than any wine cooler out there.

Cantillon usually doesn't fail to disappoint, and this is no exception. If you're into vinous, wine-like beers, this is well worth the occasional indulgence. High-priced, but this is a time-and-space-intensive brew, so it's understandable.

Draft at Local Option.

Pours dark ruby with pale pink head, very little of which lasts more than a millisecond.

Aroma is of cranberry, lemon, grass and oak.

Tastes like sweet grape and cranberry jello followed by a dry aged bitter hop finished. This is incredibly complex and changes significantly with warmth.

Nice and dry finish, but this carbonation is too sharp for me. I'd like it a little smoother.

Overall, one of Cantillon's best. Drinks incredibly easy and I'm glad I finally got to tick this one without buying a $40 bottle.
