2008 sticker poured into Cantillon stem.
Deep red in appearance. Barely any head. Looks like Juice.
Smells like a funky cherry pie in a good way. Tons of cherry and that’s typical Cantillon funk.
Taste is amazing. SO much cherry with slight funk. Really delicious.
Feel was as expected. Proper body and nice carb. Very drinkable.
Overall, this beer wasn’t outstanding. So balanced and held up so well for it being a 2008.

2014 vintage poured from bottle at Cantillon in August 2017. Pours a nice purple with light purple head that quickly dissipates. Beautiful beer. Nose is woody, tons of sour cherries, earthy, and a bit viney. Taste is so smooth. Not much sourness, but a lot of cherries! I wouldn't call this an overly complex beer, but super tasty and smooth. Mouthfeel is perfect.

2014 bottle split between four people at the Cantillon tasting room after the tour.

Pours a pretty dark red with a pink head. Smells like cherry -- lots of cherry, with something of a jam character.

Taste is cherry and tartness -- interesting that the aroma seemed fairly sweet, but the taste is not. There's a slight bitterness to it that complements surprisingly nicely.

Mouthfeel is perfect, velvet smooth, exactly what I hope for from Cantillon. Overall, I think one of the best beers I've ever had.
