Thanks do much to Travlr!!! The appearance of the beer is incredible. It looks like a passionfruit with blood orange. Taste is barnyard funk. This is incredible.

Bottle graciously shared by Eric at his tasting. Never thought I would try this stupid whale, thanks brah. Pours gorgeous murky pink with a tiny white head. As soon as you dig your nose into the glass your hit with the most beautiful, candy grape smelling flavor ever. On top of the grape dankness, there is a good bit of horseblanket, fruit skin, and barn. Flavor is concord grapes, acidic peach, vintage oak, blanket, and sour cherries. Dances on the tongue with a perfectly balanced body. This is honestly the best smelling and tasting lambic I have encountered. If you are lucky enough to try this lambic, make sure you have some Kleenex or a jizz rag with you. Cheers

Bottle courtesy of Eric. Huge thanks to this beautiful beer. Pours a hazy murky reddish amber body with light white lacing. Aroma is candy grape flavor and nice funk. Mouthfeel is literally perfect - notes of grape candy haichu, grapes, funky fruit and sour tart candy. Super unique where the grape flavor dominates, but not at all in a bad way. Incredible.

One 750ml bottle, amazing taste of sweet candy mixed up with the cantillon sour lambic. the aroma reminds me of artificial candy, with some cantillon notes lifting it up. this is the best cantillon ive had so far, hoping to make a revisit to this willy wonkas candy land once again!

Pours a cloudy orange-pinkish color with medium head. The nose is acid, lemon, funk, and a bit of red/black fruit. The palate is sour and dry with flavors of citrus, acidity, barnyard, a bit of grapes, and musty oak. Not a ton of grape flavor left but a nice Lambic overall.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 Iíve had this beer 5 or so times out of both 375ml & 750ml bottles. Original review 08-23-10 from 375ml bottle.

Pours a reddish/orange color, fizzy white head. Some lacing along the sides of the glass and a thin film on top as the cap. Grape juice, oak, funk/tart. Iím a huge fan of the Concord grape juice-esk smell. The funk melds wonderfully with the grapes and the oak notes are an added bonus. Solid. Grapes, tart/sour notes, slight oak, fruit characteristics, some must old barn in there as well. I am in lust with this beer. Light, champagne-esk lively carbonation, dry finish.

One of the best beers Iíve ever had, no doubt.

Wow. The Don lives up to the hype. Nose is grape juice. Strongly reminiscent of concord grapes, some oak, hint of funk. Cloudy light red/dark pink. Taste is superb. Juicy grapes followed by light lemon tartness and a tpich of earthy funk. Refreshing - unlike any lambic Iíve had before. Fox grapes are legit.

Murky orange-red pour with a small white head. Nose is musty and very heavy on the grapes. Strong funk, lots of fruit, and plenty of acid. A touch of lemon zest, some blue cheese, and a bit of damp straw. Flavor is lightly sweet from the grapes, but still has a very pronounced acidity and sourness. Nice blue cheese funk, some grass, straw, and must. Strong citrus notes, a bit of oak, and a lot of barnyard funk.
