Brandman (2835) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2010
Golden body with some yeast floaters. Small white head. Aroma of old attic, some mold and sour aroma. Very harsh. Really sour and a way too much for me. Too sour to notice those little flavour in lambic.

afrantzell (39) - The Court of the Crimson King, California, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Bottled in 2002. Made for One Pint Pub in Helsinki, Finland.

This one’s made with redcurrants. The 375ml bottle pours copper with orange chunks. My nostrils pucker at the smell. Unbelievably tart red berries. Warily, I take a sip.

Sharp, tart, unripe berries, followed by sharp, sour lambic. My face implodes. After a few minutes of precarious sipping, the taste opens up and notes of cranberries and crabapples come through, along with some twigs and pebbles.

This is full bodied, even silky. It came close to being too tart and sour, but once it sits open for a while it becomes drinkable. An interesting lambic.

Bottle at One Pint, 2002-vintage. Cloudy orange coloured with a medium sized white ehad. Fruity and light acidic aroma of berries and red currants. Acidic flavour of berries and red currants. Acidic and tart berryish finish.

thebeertourist (5187) - 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 (1262) - 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.
