Enjoyed at Cantillon. Ruby orange with off white head, fades to thin ring, light lacing. Nose is dominated by the peppery grapes, light wood and horse blanket finish it out. Taste is light grape juice with the pepper coming through yet again, some cheesy bretty flavors, and very lightly sour. Creamy carbonation with a light clean finish, not very dry at all. Not my favorite fruit Cantillon by a long shot, nice to try, but this grape doesn’t do anything for me.

2011 75cl Bottle

We ordered 2 x 75cl bottles at the brewery split among friends. We had to drink it there as there are no to go bottles available of this beer.

Pours a cloudy hazy reddish/orange with a very slight white head. Smells of tart, sourness with plenty of glorious funk comprise the nose. First sip is surprisingly dry with still some sweetness left. Green apples, lemons, and sour fruit dominate the flavor with a nice tad of oak peeking thru. Mouthfeel is amazing as it is perfectly carbonated. Wow X TWO!

A 75 cl bottle opened at brewery, bottled 23-Dec-10.

A-Dull red color with lively small CO2 bubbles rising to a white foam that rims the glass.

S-The lambic smell-barnyard earthy yeast with hints of black peppery spice.

T-The pepper spice is definitely there but the lambic flavor is most dominant flavor. A hint of hops is there too. A syrupy dark liquor on bottle of bottle-the last glass with this added is more sour and overall more assertive.

M-Clean and smooth, a bit of black pepper and hoppy end note, not as sour as other Cantillon beers.

D-I drank the whole bottle myself-so damn good for a sour.

O-An interesting almost refreshing lambic. Really glad I had the opportunity to taste this one, a highlight of my most recent trip to Brussels.

I was lucky enough to sample this beer at lord hobos on zwanze day 2011, just never got around to reviewing it.

This beer pours a nice pinkish red color kind of like a pink grapefruit. There is very little head but this may be because they poured pictures and then glasses then distributed thm to the whole bar. The smell is slightly winelike with a little funk in the background and a peppery finish. The flavor follows suit with a slightly winelike flavor a good sourness notes of grapefruit and a peppery finish. The mouthfeel was dry but the grapefruit notes made my mouth water with every sip. Overall I thought this was great.
