BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Cantillon
Belgium
cantillon.be

Style: Belgian Fruit Lambic

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Blend of raspberries with two-year-old lambic - 300 g per litre.

Beer with very intense fruitiness. The natural tartness of the raspberries nicely complements the lambic’s slight acidity.

This beer will keep for a long time in a good cellar but we recommend to drink it within the year to enjoy the intensity of the fruit.

Color: ruby
Serving Temperature: 12 °C/54 °F

The beer pours a ruby red with a big fluffy pink head. It has medium high carbonation. The beer smells of raspberries, funk, almonds, and vanilla. It tastes lightly tart, with raspberries, almonds, vanilla, and light funk. The feel is very light and dry. A tasty lambic from Cantillon.

75cl bottle drank at the brewery in Brussels. Poured into 25cl Cantillon glass

pours a brillant dark pink color, foamy white head that fades. But lively carbonation. the Raspberry flavor is nice without the over sweetness of other brewery's Fruited Lambics, this has the nice pleasant refreshing tartness that drinks well. thin bodied.

Bottle at brewery. Ruby hued body with a sudsy, quickly dissipating pale pink head. Smells exactly like a fresh picked raspberry crushed between the fingers. Taste is like a raspberry with the sweetness mostly sucked out of it: the tartness from the natural innoculation complements the inherent raspberry tartness very well. Medium bodied with a lingering fruity character. Complex and elegant

93/100

08/2015 - Raspberry jam fosho, tannic, funk, and barnyard up front; very tart, big acidity, more raspberries, and just jam on the palate; flavorful finish of raspberry, cherry, and a wee bit of pepper to round it out.

Reddish pour. Tastes of raspberry. Very tough to get this beer in the USA. Beer is quite tart compared to other offering from Cantillion. Still solid, and highly recommend.

Had a 2015 vintage

Honestly expected more raspberry in the taste and nose. As the Cantillon employee said it was their finest lambic with not 200 grams, but 300 grams of raspberry per liter Lou pepe.

Nevertheless still a great beer. Cantillon does not have any bad beers

This one poured a bright red with a slight pink head that didn't last long.
The first smell was like sticking my face into a jar of fresh raspberry jam, deeper in the slight funk and oak began coming through. A bit of acidity is there too.
Taste follows, tart raspberry, a nice touch of funk and oak. 
Light to medium body, dry finish.
Overall an amazing beer!
