L: A ruby red, amber, lingering pinkish hue head
S: Wow, Raspberries, a dark forest full of raspberries that is so complex and rich, a funky yeast hint with a sweet sour scent
T: A fantastic sour sweet and tart blend of raspberries, yeast and that Cantillion Lambic funk, fantastic
F: A prickly beginning that is very high in carbonation but evens out and dances around your palette. Nice
O: A fantastic Lambic that is definitely worth the cost or trip. Very nice.

A 750ml capped and corked bottle bottled on 26th January 2016, poured into a Cantillon ballon glass.

Appearance: It poured a clear ruby red colour with a one finger pinkish white head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse lacing.

Aroma: Tart and juicy fresh raspberries with a hint of lemon, berry jam, oak and barnyard funk.

Taste: Sweet, sour and tart raspberries followed by lemon juice, oak woodiness and a hint of barnyard funk.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, dry, light bodied with moderate lively carbonation.

Overall: A great raspberry Lambic that I could drink all day. So refreshing with great balance.

Taster glass. Another excellent bottle from our friend Shannon.

A: Raspberry pink with just a hint of pink bubbly froth across the top.

S: Raspberries, oakiness, a bit of barnyard funk.

T: Such a sweet/tart fruity decadence with raspberries leading the way. A light funkiness with some oakiness follows and only makes it all better.

M: Low to medium with light carbonation, but just right for me. Perfection.

O: So very lucky to be able to sip this wonderful lambic. Now I see why Cantillon is world class.

Tart and oaky; supremely musty; noticeable raspberries without really tasting like a raspberry lambic. The focus is really on the terroir - Cantillon's yeast and barrels.
