750 ml bottle served @ 50* into a flute, consumed on 3/30/13. Bottled Feb 9th 2011. My first Cantillon. Been sittin on this for a year. Split with the wifey.

A - Nice big puffy fizzy light pink head, dissipates quickly to a thin blanket that holds up through the entire glass due to high carbonation. Good clarity, slightly hazy. Orange/pink body. Not much lacing at all.

S - Can catch some tart fruitiness during the pour from a foot and a half away. Tart with some light funk & fruit notes. Funk gets stronger as it warms, funky cheese.

T - Pretty tart but fairly balanced. Not as fruity as it probably was fresh but as a result of age a solid sour/funk profile is in control. Still the raspberry is there no question. Fairly complex. Finish is on the dry side. That fatty/cheesy funk really comes through at the end of the glass once its warmed, delicious.

M - Effervescent, prickly carbonation makes this delightful. Medium-light body.

O - This is very pleasurable to drink. The overall balance and high carbonation make it very refreshing. Really wish I had easy access to this on the reg.

375 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/20/2011. Pours lightly hazy red-orange color with a 2 finger foamy pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge tart raspberry, raspberry juice, sour apple, cherry, hay, straw, leather, pepper, clove, oak, funk, white vinegar, and earthy yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and big complexity of tart fruit notes with barrel and yeast character; and great strength. Taste of big tart and sour raspberry, sour apple, raspberry juice, cherry, hay, straw, pepper, clove, oak, leather, oak, funk, light vinegar, and earthy yeast spiciness. Good amount of tart fruity acidity on the finish; with lingering notes of tart raspberry, sour apple, cherry, hay, straw, pepper, clove, funk, oak, and earthy yeast spiciness on the finish for a while. Fantastic flavor balance of fruit, yeast, and barrel flavors with big complexity; good balance of acidity and sweetness; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a crisp, acidic, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is great. Acidity is moderately high, but not overwhelming. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic raspberry lambic! Great balance and big complexity of fruit, barrel, and yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink despite the fair amount of acidity. A highly enjoyable offering as expected.

March 5th, 2013

A glorious Cantillon bottled on the 26th of September, 2012

The nose bursts with fresh, juicy, just-picked raspberries. Underneath the raspberries is a touch of barnyard funk but it is surprisingly subdued for a lambic.

The raspberries again, dominate the palate. The raspberries are bright, juicy and full with the slightest touch of sweetness. The raspberries begin to take on an earthier flavor as it progresses down the palate, like dirt covered raspberries. The raspberries begin to fade towards the back and are taken over by an herbal spiciness and a bit of barnyard funky-ness. Lactic acidity is present in the back with a gentle drying and tannic sourness.

The mouthfeel is light and extremely silky.

A fantastic fruit lambic with a great balance between ripe raspberries and acidity/sourness. Love it, and I love you Jean van Roy
