BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Cantillon
Belgium

Style: Lambic - Fruit

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Everyone knows some of our best friends are wine growers from the Libourne region in France, more specifically those who make Saint Emillion and Pomerol. They respect the tradition and let their wine ferment in a natural way.

Fermentation, origin and vintage are still kept up.

Our collaboration resulted in a product uniting the best of their wine and of our beer : the Saint-Lamvinus.

The grapes, of the merlot and cabernet-franc varieties, are soaked in Bordeaux barrels containing two to three years old lambic. The beer is not blended before the bottling. The foam is caused by the addition of a liquor which starts the fermentation.

So here it is, review #1000. I had to treat myself to my first Cantillon product. I enjoyed this one with my wife Piera and Amit (who was visiting from Singapore).
Ruby red with garnet highlights and a light haze, the foam was a vibrant pink and quite fluffy. As the head settled to a thick ring, there was a bit of lacing, but nothing that really stuck. Incredible, complex aroma. There was strong barnyard funkiness, the distinct smell of horse, and a little vinegar. Also thrown in were light tobacco notes, some tart fruit, and a vinous character (like a merlot or burgundy). Very tart flavour, like raspberry seeds with a bit of sour cherry thrown into the mix. Puckering. Some earthiness became evident as it warmed, with notes of leather and barnyard increasing. Sweet grapes gave it a bit of red wine quality as well. Crisp carbonation to start, but this faded quickly to a gentler texture mid-sip. Nice body with significant dryness. I really enjoyed this and I'm glad I have some more Cantillon bottles to try out soon. There was a lot of complexity if you looked for it, but on the surface was a wonderful tart beer that was quite drinkable.

750mL bottle poured into a tulip; 2011 batch

Ruby red (almost plum) colored body with a thin cap full of tiny bubbles. Musty red wine grapes, barnyard, soft oak, lightly aged cheese, and lactic tartness. At first the nose seems real straightforward, but as you keep diving in, more layers reveal themselves. On the palate, sweet yet tart red grapes up front, with a mustiness coming out mid-palate. Barnyard notes through the middle with some oak before a final rush of cherries and grapes. The finish is crisp and dry. A long lingering tartness in the finish. The body is on the light side of medium with perfect carbonation. This lambic is a great bridge beer for the wine drinker. Loads of wine grape flavor with a moderate tartness. This could easily win over some wine drinkers. I found this to be delicious. The flavors are bold, and really release off the palate quickly to reveal this lingering tartness that satisfies the sour cravings.

On tap at Church Key last night. Fucking expensive at $16 for a 10oz glass($13+$1.50 tax+$1.50 tip), but it was worth it.

The pour is great, a pretty reddish pink with a thick white head that recedes to a collar, leaving no lace. The nose is just outstanding. Plenty of vinous character with the red wine grapes being fresh and vibrant. Apart from the vinous character, the grapes also impart a faint cocoa/tobacco character to the nose. The lambic base is equally impressive with a musty aroma, some funk and a pronounced sourness. Funk is quite restrained.
The palate quite vinous with the grapes lending a lot of flavor and depth. The sourness is immediately apparent, with the acidity working really well with the grape. The funk character is rather low, just mildly musty, though I suspect that the fruit is obfuscating just how much funk is present. Drying and mildly tannic on the finish with a clean sourness and lingering vinous character, this is exceptional stuff.

750mL corked and capped bottle poured into a stemmed glass. October 27, 2009 bottled date.

(A)- Pours a hazy blood red ruby color that produced a great pink effervescent head that dissipated quite quickly to transparent white bubbles.

(S)- A dry, yet has some tart dark grape aromas with a mild creamy woody oak vanilla accent typical of wine barrels. Mild funk too, so very wine-like. Has a very subtle lactic earthiness at the end.

(T)- A wonderfully acidic sour woody oak and grape fruit profile. Very wine-like as the smell, but has that dry, mildly lactic sourness and funk to remind you what it really is. Tasty and complex.

(M)- A great carbonation level and balance. A really perfect balance of acidic sourness, and dry woody fruits; nothing overpowers the other. A great character and feel because of this.

(D)- Yet another winner from Cantillon. A great seamless balance and feel to it. A nice acidity too. I would be curious what age will do to this. Quite drinkable for the style. Just everytime I have this it seems to get better and better in my eyes. If only this was easier to get my hands on (and perhaps a bit cheaper) would this be near perfect 5's. Superb both fresh and with some time on it!

Shared with grub and Lexx. 2004 vintage, 750 ml bottle corked, capped and wrappered, acquired from my man Goldorak, thanks Martin!

Pours a hazed ruby red/pink, thick and fizzy pinkish head forms, leaves some lace on the glass, settles to a thin ring around the glass. Smell is wicked, grapes, fruit, citrus acidity, wine, sulphur, wheat, cherries, funky barnyard, really complex. Taste is crazy, very tart, cherries and concord grapes, oak, vinegar, citrus, bread, wheat, fruity acidic finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied with low to medium carbonation, puckering sour, still very drinkable. Amazing Lambic, deserves all its praise.

Cork says 2003.

Beautiful looking hue of scarlet. With a dash of that cranapple juice look to it. This fucker literally radiates. There's a bubbly light pink froth that caps it off quite nicely. It recedes to a thick, bubbly collar that leaves sporadic clingy lace.

Aroma is quite nice. Soft notes of vinegar, mustiness and barnyard funk are complented nicely by some purple grape sweetness and wine characteristics.

I find that this lambic really finds a happy medium between sour and sweet. It's got that horse blanket and farmyard funk going on. And the acidic properties, acetic acid, etc... but to a lesser extent than most Cantillon offerings. On the flip side, this beer also has a touch of grape fruit sweetness and red wine. And it's an interaction that works to perfection.

This beer is Bone Dry. Sahara Desert Dry. And the carbonation is ever so subtle. The body is about medium or so. And this beer leaves you wanting more, sip after sip, until it is gone...

Wow, this is quite the gem, truly, looks like merlot, a little lighter, but brighter, prettier, good sexy meld of purple and pink. The head is pink, and a good 1"+ deep. Truly a masterpiece worth looking at. Solid purple grape aroma, usual suspects of dry lemon.

Complex. Grapes, tannins, meld to produce a dry fruit presence, all the great sour flavor, none of it getting in the way of each other. A little bit of berry note to it. Just the right amount of tartness, substantial. I thought it was very clean, not barnyardy or horse blanket stuff you can read in almost every review.

Damn expensive stuff, but sometimes, you or she is worth it. Normally, I think the year round lineup from Cantillon (and Fantome) was usually superior to the harder to gets, but this one seems to be the exception to the rule.

Damn fine on a day at the end of summer, thanks Labor Day weekend 2011. This and 3F schaerbeekse in heaven.

EdIT: got to try some on tap at triple rock, wow, this beer just keeps getting better every time I drink it.

750ml bottle procured at the brewery. 21 November 2012 indicated on the label. Pours a beautiful garnet hue with an effervescent,white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is somewhat subdued - tart, suggestions of cork and acetic acid. Taste is a bit musty with grape skins, cranberry and tannins. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a carbonation just shy of lively and a dry finish. Overall, not my favorite offering from Cantillon (I anticipated a little more fruit); however, a wonderful lambic nonetheless.

My only bottle split with friends two nights ago before leaving on a very long road trip. Notes taken during consumption.

Cantillon saint lamvinus nov 21 2012

A- Deep muddy purple pink hue with a small fizzy head that falls from one finger to nothing. I would say retention is low-minimal for the style. No lace or legs but the brew itself has a very beautiful color.

S- Fresh cantillon bug produced funk blend is strong with added Merlot grapes that are quite massive. Notes of oak, lemon, lactic and acetic, most vinous of Cantillon for me.

T- Follows the nose very closely with a massive grape vinous feel that brings stems and all. This is above the classic Cantillon funk blend, acetic and lactic, some cherry brett basement barnyard.

MF- Dried out light bodied with high end carbonation bringing some fizz to the palate but key to support the flavors. Finishes with a medium sourness not quite as high as other Cantillon.

Vinous, Merlot grape fruit bomb with the classic Cantillon Gueuze feel. It blends together well and creates a very refreshing, hybrid style beverage between beer and wine.

Quite the lambic. Poured into small sample glasses with only a bit of off white head and no lace. Color is a copper amber. Aroma is musky, malty, yeasty, oak, hint of the grape and acid. Flavor is much the same with the grape coming out in the finish. Great body and carbonation. Finsh is like flavor and medium in length. Clean finish but not really a session. This is a beer for the true lambic afficianado minus the fu fu.

I drank this from the bottle into a chalice.

It pours a dark ruby red almost purple, with a very light pink. Not much head or lacing but it is surprisingly clear.

The aroma is very tart and funky and overwhelming from the start. Distinct horse blanket, tough to pick out any particular fruits. Its almost too strong in a negative way.

The taste is very light compared the aroma, the only traditional tart you get from a lambic is at the end and even then its still a light tart. There are notes of blackberries and cranbberries.

There is an ok mouthfeel nothing special and its drinkable for a lambic just becuase of its lack of s strong sourness.

Bottled 21 November 2010 courtesy of mrand01.

Pours a translucent dark crimson with bright ruby red hues. Looks a shade lighter than cranberry juice, with a bit of tawny paleness to it. Small soapy/bubbly off-white head that slowly dissipates laving some light spotty lacing.

Aromas begin with sour grapes and earthy mustiness. Then I get some vinegar, oak and with some acidic citrus and yeasty barnyard funk. Light stone/tropical fruits like peach and pineapple are coming to mind as well.

The tastes begin with plenty of lactic/citric acidity to go along with sweet and sour grapes. The oak and Brett offer up some nice tannins and funk as well. Not overly tart but def reminds me a little of a sour patch kid that has been left out and is getting a little stale and moldy. As it warms all the flavors really start to make themselves known; must, vinegar, earth and funk throughout, yet never overpowering or offensive.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to low carbonation. Finish is dry and tart but not overly so. Oak and brett flavors linger ever so slightly on the palate.

Overall this is definitely one of the best, if not the best Lambic I have ever had. It hits right in my wheelhouse; funky, sour, tart, fruity, tannic but none are over the top or out of balance. Really one of the best beers I have ever had because the flavor profile is so straight-forward and yet so complex at the same time because each of the subtle flavors makes an appearance as you sample. Def worth trading for/seeking out and laying out a little extra if need be to obtain.

750mL bottle, corked and capped, purchased for $29.99 at Grapes of Mirth in Columbus. The beer is hazy, kind of muted pink reddish colored, with an off-white head tinted just a little pink. I guess it's kind of stereotyping but this really smells like a funky barnhouse. I'm not sure I can smell anything grape-like, but I get earthy mustiness and a little vinegar. This lambic is not as sour as I expected but still has a little mouth pucker after each sip. Mostly it's funky and dry, maybe a little fruit but I couldn't nail the exact ingredient without reading the bottle (Bordeaux grapes). Light bodied with low carbonation, addictive and tasty.

A-Cloudy deep ruby read, one finger pink head.

S-Grapes, fruit, more grapes, oak, mild funk.

T-Starts with a nice funk and then proceeds to be very fruity, grapes very wine like, tad bit of oak.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation but crisp.

O-An amazing beer, balance is where it should be, maybe it could be more sour but you can still taste this beer a day after having.

Big thanks to AnotherJoe for bringing this bottle to a tasting... 2012 vintage...

A: Pours a vibrant red, with deeper purples mixed throughout. There is only a tiny bit of light-pink head that fades quickly.

S: The nose is red wine funk, mild grape skin, slight blackberry sweetness, and funk. It smells great.

T: The beer starts out with a good bit of wine and grape character. It's sweet yet sour. It's clean, yet funky. As the beer moves to the back end I get a a bit more lingering sourness and a touch of yeast. Really solid.

M: Medium bodied beer. It hit the palate hard, but transitions off nicely. It's tart and slightly bitter. It's drying in the back end.

O: Another excellent beer. I have through the roof to have been about to try this beer. I hope I'll have another chance to try it again in the future.

On-tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA.

Pours a hazy deep ruby color with opaque orange highlights and wisps of tiny white bubbles on top. The bubbles dissipate fairly quickly leaving a glassy top.

Smells of mild red wine vinegar with good amounts of Concord grapes and hints of barnyard funk.

Tastes very good. The flavor profile is comparable to not-quite-ripe Concord grapes, that is the sweetness is underlying but light enough to allow other flavors to shine uninhibited. The vinegar is barely present, instead giving way more to the funkiness that comes in midway through the sip and carries through to a decidedly tart ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a slick thickness with very light carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could very easily have a few more.

Overall I've been wary of the price tag of a bottle of this for a while and I'm glad I finally had the opportunity to try it on-tap. Very well worth the shot.

A huge thanks to Dajtai007 for my most recent taste of this. A very generous shared bottle between me and several other BA's. This is a 2009 bottle.

A: Pours a surprisingly clear, and beautifully bright garnet red color. A slightly white/pink head forms that gently rises to a finger. The foam recedes to a ring, but sticks around throughout.
S: That great funky Belgian yeast is up front and center. Funky barnyard and horse blanket is just awesome. Vinous grapes that is up front. Tart, lactic acid lingers, but it is not dominate.
T: Follows the nose. Tons of funky, horse blanket aromas. Musky, vinous grapes. Just as you think the flavor is gone, sour and acidic flavors come out that are great. Again, the sourness is never over barring. Vinous grape is the dominate flavor, with the sourness hitting much later on. I love it.
M/D: A full body that is perfectly crisp, though creamy at the same time, dry, and refreshing. Very textured. So easy to drink. I can never get enough of this.

A great beer that I have enjoyed several times, and every time is a treat. Because of the vinous character, this is something that could appeal to wine drinkers as well. One of those beers that is more of an experience than anything, and an experience I am glad to have at every opportunity. I can't recommend this enough.

Appearance. Pours a hazy purple-red with half a finger of fizzy, thick, light pink head that fades pretty quickly.

Smell. Sweet red grapes and sour apples in a horse barn. Funky, sweet and sour ...in for a treat here, me thinks.

Taste. Big blast of sour and funky brett. After a few sips, dry red wine starts to come through, especially in the finish. Barnyard funk is present from begining to end, but not overpowering and doesn't linger past it's welcome. Sourness is somewhat intense, but not to the point of tasting like vinegar. Very nice.

Mouthfeel. Medium-light body. Fine, lively and smooth, medium-strong carbonation.

Overall. Fantastic treat. Elegant and full of flavour, but still easy to drink. Went through the first glass way to quickly. Luckily, I'm drinking this alone and have another glass left. ...Who says drinking alone is a bad thing?? If I had money to burn, I would drink this stuff often.

Well, I’m finally going to sample this “Lambic” that has been “Numere Uno” on my top five beers to sample for many years, I’m almost hesitant to sample it as I’ve waited so long I’m afraid I’ll be disappointed “Not” I’m sure.

The beer, after the removal of the black foil, crown & cork from the 750ml green bottle it sets in the flute glass a beautiful dark ruby with a bit of purple, the head is minute, the color and off white, “WOW”, I can smell berry tartness from two feet away. Nose is acerbic, with hints of grapes, cherries, musk, also to me the odor of damp and old moss covered oak, a plethora of aromas in this nose. First taste, “WHAM”, a pungent mouth puckering sourness, with just a tiny bit of sweetness, top is light in feel. Finish is dominated by the tartness with a bit of the berries and grapes coming through, vinous, and absolutely the driest aftertaste I’ve ever experienced. My oh my what a brew this is, and I must say it was worth the wait and the $44.00 I paid for it.

Note: As I was enjoying this great beer, I was thinking what would go good with it to make a perfect Sunday Afternoon, so I slapped in a great Jazz CD (Monk's Dream), and opened another precious gift a Cuban Cigar, I was in Beer/Cigar & Music Nirvana!

Todd the beer guy at McKean and Charles in Waldoboro got this beer and then cellared it for me until I managed to get up there for it. Just a quick plug to try his establishment. I was saving this beer for a special occasion. Nothing special was on the horizon, so I broke down and drank it after holding it for a month. A 750ml bottle, with the label stating it was bottled 25Oct2006. Poured into a tulip glass, it was an amazing ruby red color with a touch of orange. A small head quickly dissipated, leaving a very still beer. It had a fruity aroma which seemed mostly cherry, and was also on the musty side (I mean that in a good way). Pleasant fruity taste, but what really was really striking was the degree of tartness. I've had other lambics from Cantillon that were nowhere near this tart. A wonderful, smooth beer. Great to drink, although I couldn't do a steady diet of lambics. Share this with your wife or significant other.

750ml bottle 2006 vintage $32! It looks amazing, pink, red, cloudy with a puff of a pink head which fades to a ring of bubbles. It smells like musty lambic but not horsey, sour grapes,lemons, fantastic. It tastes like delicious sour grape juice, with a hint of must. The sourness is nice and the beer is really easy to drink.

On draught at Belmont Station's Puckerfest, served in a flute glass, Saint Lamvinus is a chill hazed purple with a thin white collar. Very pretty color.

Smell is pretty muted, some sourness with a vinous tang.

Taste is also pretty muted sourness, a bit too heavy on the wine for my taste, slightly rubbery, with an acidic bite.

Mouthfeel is dry and slick, with a medium body.

Drinkablity is wasn't to high for me, with to much wine and not enough funk. Still, I assume this barrel isn't aged beyond the brewery, and will probably grab a bottle at some point to stash for a few years. Maybe not worth the price of admission by the bottle though, it was $7 or 8 for a 10-12 oz pour at Belmont.

750 ml bottle split and poured into a Delirium tulip. 5% ABV, Bottled 18 November 2008, Instructions on temperature and pouring.

Thanks to bnieman's dad for sharing this expensive beer on his b-day!

A - This beer is majorly carbonated. Evidence comes from a large "pop" exploding on the cork release. A big puffy pink tinted head appears on top of the clear amber-pinkish color. Low retention but it leaves small bits of lace and a hefty ring.

S - St. Lamvinus is bursting with a funky nose of oaky wood and a massively funky barnyard and horse blanked Brett scent. The only thing keeping it from perfection in aroma is a burnt rubber hint that arose from a swirl. A small kiss of red grape is there too but not a prominent factor at all.

T - The flavor is almost overpoweringly tart with strong red grapes with a massively funky oak, horse blanket, and a hint of burned rubber on the finish. Strong acidity and bitterness as well. The funk overtakes all of the other things to the point of destroying any typical "beer" malt/hop flavor.

M - Very light-bodied and extremely tart with a crisp acidic finish and an overpowering funk to it.

D - It's pretty drinkable for how insanely funky it is. At 5%, it's easily drinkable in that regard. You've really gotta like funky Brett beers to enjoy this one.

Rose with fast-fading pink froth. Must, oak, and grape juice on the nose.
Vinegar tang, grape skin, some lemon rind, a slight bit of funk and balsamic bite to end.
Fruity finish and tart linger. Crisp, dry, lively.

With Merlot grapes in oak.

Tart, easy lambic. A good place to start for the novice. Not deep, but nice.
