thewolf (11589) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a deep, deep red with a fizzy thin head that soon disappears. Aroma is light sour, cherries, barnyard, horse-blanket and a light woodiness. Nice mouthfeel with quite low carbonation. Flavour is tart and lightly fruity - some oakiness in there as well. Very well-balanced, btu still tart as only Cantillon can be.

Cantillon Friday Night Tasting Session, Providence RI
Pours a peachy plum colour with a small white head. Nose is muted with cherries and other red fruits, sharp sourness also lingers. Initial taste of tart cherry with a puckering response. Swarms the mouth in a delightful array of red fruits and very enjoyable. Finishing with tart red fruits. Palate duration is excellent. Dry but didnt draw away from the duration.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Bottle from the First Houston Tasting
2003 Vintage
Pours a beautiful cherry red with an aroma of mouth-puckering (yes, mouth-puckering-- itís that danged strong) cherry and cranberry. A perfect balance of sour cherry that pulls your lips down with it as it descends into the lower digestive tract. Mouthfeel? Pucker up, buttercup. Almost flawless.

2003 bottle shared at Houston Beer Tasting. Pours a cloudy red-copper with thin bubbly white head. Strong sour aroma. Taste is of sour cherries. Mouthfeel is super sour. Much to much for my taste.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 Pours deep opaque red with no head. Aroma is quite sharp and sour, with a great deal of acidity. Massive horse taint, wet hay, and farmy funk. Bracingly puckering mouthfeel with a bone dry finish. The quintessential kriek...

2006 bottle. pours a hazy rose-red with a bit of a brown tint, with a moderate very slightly pink colored rose head that quickly fades to a film. smell is funky, with oak and cherries playing in a spicy and yet musty barnyard. hint of the sort of vegetables you might find in a red italian soup. quite complex and more enjoyable than in the various funky beers iíve had in the past. i think that hint of cherries makes it. taste is sharp warm vegetable funk, with just he tiniest hint of cherries. iím not sure i like it. the finish is great: very tart, tiny sweet with pretty big sour, even a hint of salt. medium to light bodied, but a bit sticky, with a ton of tiny bubbles. i really like the finish. the rest of the beer isnít quite for me yet, though.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2007
First Official Houston Tasting. Thanks to BigGreen (BA) for bringing this. 2003 bottle. Great reddish orange color with no head at all. Aroma of sour, sour, sour and sour. Some cherries as well. Love it. Flavor is very souring with a super drying of the mouth that leaves only tart cherries on the palette. Wow. Fantastic lambic.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Pours a lightly hazy ruby reddish/pink with a smaller bubbly/creamy white head. Aroma of funk, horse blanket, sour cherries, musty and yes everything you would expect from a Cantillon. Flavor of funky sour cherries, some vinegar, medium tartness, cleans the palate right off and as expected from Cantillon.

Nice pink/red color with a creamy pink head. Tart cherries in the nose. Sour with the same cherries in flavor. A nice cherry lambic.
