served from a 375ml bottle at black and blue and took notes.

A-dim lighting but was reddish/amber color with little head.

S-funky raspberry from cantillon,little horse blanket but has more of the brett brux funk. Very fruity and tart. hints of oak lie in the background

T-tart, sweet raspberries with a bit of horse blanket and some sweetness from brux. A nice driness to accompany the sweet raspberries. hints of oak. one of the least funky I have had from Cantillon.

M-thin bodied. very drinkable other that the tartness could get to you but I didn't drink more than the 375ml bottle to tell.

Cantillon is hyped up now and I used to be able to find this anywhere sitting on the shelf. Good beer though.

A real treat, tried this on-tap at Brewdog Edinburgh over the weekend.

This one was my first true lambic, having only tried a few imitation fruit beers in the past and I glad I was introduced to the style on-tap as opposed to from a bottle; a rare treat in the UK I would imagine. Even with the warning at the bar and a small taster before I ordered I was still inpressed by how sour this beer was as I worked my way down the glass. I found this one as being an amazing beer t sip away at with my third of a pint lasting around thirty minutes. Given that I'll probably not find this one on-tap anywhere else in the UK in a hurry I didn't begrudge paying the equivelant of £9.60 had it only be available by the pint. Do your best to try this one, you won't regret it.

Bright red color with a 2 finger light pink head, which settled down to a thin disc. Left no lacing, as expected. The aroma has tart raspberries, yeast, and barnyard funk.

The taste has tart raspberries, yeast, barnyard funk, lemon, and is acidic.

Light bodied with a lot of carbonation. Finishes dry, with a light tart raspberry aftertaste. Another great sour from Cantillon. I highly recommend trying it if you get the chance.

Grabbed a bottle from one of the rare shipments that comes in now and again.

A - Pours with a fairly vigorous head that dies very quickly to a small ring of persistent bubbles around the edge. Color is a dull brown cherry red.

S - Very nice. Pretty heavy on the cider vinegar alongside raspberries. Smells much more sour than funky. Raspberries are the biggest component.

T - Tart and dry. Starts with a tart fruit burst, quite fruity at the beginning. The fruit fades a bit to let up some light funk with the tartness. Finishes quite dry. Not much oak presence here really.

M - Very refreshing. Pretty well-carbonated to go along with the refreshing acidity and fruit.

Overall a very good lambic. Not truly fantastic but certainly worth picking up whenever you see it.

Appears clear, light ruby with a slight haze and a short-lived pink, rocky head that leaves no lace on a Dogfish Head snifter.

Has an aroma of fresh berries with a light, sour funkiness. The background includes cigar tobacco and apple vinegar.

Big, puckering tartness, similar to cranberry juice. The middle contains sweetness and very fruity raspberries, while the finish is long and tart.

A light body, crisp and refreshing with vigorous carbonation.

Very enjoyable as a sipping beer. The aggressive tartness, while desirable, makes consumption more difficult.
