Hazy golden colour with tiny white head and floaters. Yeast, mold, earth and lots of sourness in aroma. Dry SOUR flavour with red berries, mold and earth. Extremely sour. Not easy one.

thebeertourist (4781) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2009
Lambik brewed in 2002. Bottle at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Hazy, red amber with a small froth. More mellow fruit and citrus lambik aroma- the fruit is better able to compete with the lambik. Redcurrant berry flavours blending well with the citrussy lambik, still very acidic. Probably the best redcurrant lambik in the world.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2009
Bottle 2002, at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Pours a hazy golden colour, with a small off-white head. Aroma is dry and old cellar like, with notes of redcurrants. Flavour is sour and tart redcurrant, but not as balanced as other Cantillons I have tasted. The aftertaste is mildly sour and tart. I’m not a fan of redcurrant..

henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2009
Clear orange body, slight red edge, small white head; Very special nose, almost tar like, but if you look closer there are tons of redcurrant meat and pit aromas, not really any of the flowery aromas that normally come from that berry; Soft texture with very little sharp carbonation, super thight fruit acid; Looong super sharp tight finish, burning acid, unripe redcurrant meat aromas, with some red skin aromas arriving late.

mjs (4544) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2009
(Bottle, 2002 vintage, at One Pint Pub, Helsinki, on 2009-01-03 -- shared with mto, thanks) Orange and hazy. Small white head. Fruity and sour nose. Medium bodied, dry and acidy palate with medium carbonation. After a moment the palate turned in to similar feeling I get after eating redcurrants. Sourness, acidiness, fruitiness, berry flavours and some bitterness in quite complex taste. Fruitiness and sourness in aftertaste.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2008
It pours a deep golden like thick apple-cider. The nose is fresh and sweet with red currants up front.The taste is bitter-sweet with a sharp face-slapping attitude. The palate is light and not as buttery as other lambics. I happend to write "power rangers" down when i drank it...must be a hint to the fact that I didn´t experience this one as balanced as beers Cantillon normally ships out.
