4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml corked bottle. An unclear deep red beer with a huge, creamy and persistent pink head. The aroma is very nice, fruity, with notes of blueberries, lemon, cherries. Maybe less than usual, though typical Cantillon sourness. A bit fruit yoghurt like aroma. The flavour has a nice citric tartness, berries notes and has more fruits than many other products from Cantillon. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, dry long finish with sourness and light bitterness. Very good, one of the best Cantillons.

Yum, Yum, Yum. Can I have some more please sir, said Oliver.
Definitely not a bowl of oatmeal. Elegant red hues, different from the 2005, I think we had some time back. The Cantillon tang understated, rather the blueberry muffin nose I was hoping for, was slightly there - but a nice fresh blueberry nose instead. Yes, I like this!

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 (Bottle 37,5 cl) Vintage 2007. Pours a very cloudy reddish colour with a small, reddish head. Very sour and delicious Brett aroma with a fruity touch. Medium body, notes of almond and marzipan while the fruitiness is rather downplayed. Lots of sour Brett accents. Acidic, astringent finish yet still amazingly well balanced. 220308

Year 2007: Beautiful ruby read, bubbly with short lasting pinkl head. Notes of berries, leather, wood and barn yard. Tart but not as tart as prevoius year. Dry finish. A great lambiek, though it lacks sourness.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2008 Need re-rate this beer is perfect, a 5 indeed.
3rd Beer of the Beer Spot Tasting Sunday March 30th, 2008. Bottle via trade with Marilibusi, 2007 vintage, I brought this one. This was a fun beer to open, we popped the cap, and the cork rose on its own and flew up high, we didn’t loose a drop but it was a fun momentous opening. Pour red/pink with an off white head. Nose is sweet adn blueberry and super duper tart and really nice. Taste is full of blueberry, acidic and pucker. The taste is pure pure blueberry no fucking around like most blueberry beers. Taste is truly amazing, sweet blueberries, by far the best blueberry beer ever and probably my favorite lambic fruit I’ve ever had.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2008 Bottle shared by Wetherel at the Fordest tasting. Aroma of real blueberries,some lambics can taste like artifical flavors, not this one, fresh blueberry aroma. Can it really taste as good as it smells? Oh yes, it can.

375 ml bottle shared by wetherel. Lots of blueberry aromas along with the delicious funk of a tart lambic. Flavors were serious blueberry. More blueberry on the finish with lots of tart funkiness to really give it a punch. Very very good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vintage 2007, I had it March 08. The color is very beautiful deep red and the head is huge, creamy, slightly pink and it leaves a thick lace. The aroma is quite sour, but not quite as sour as many Cantillion, and it doesn’t sting in the nose. It has notes of barnyard, horse blanket, damp basement and all the typical brett notes. The blue berries are not found, but berries, yes. The flavour has a dry sourness, and the same notes as in the aroma are found here too. The finish is dry.
