CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2007 Full on sour lambic flavor-fest. Cherries are still there, but on the back notes. Aroma is typically traditionally, wet blanket, barnyard, sour, but again, against all odds, cherries and wood peek through. Beautiful beer. 2001 bottle coutersey of boboski. Just when you think it could not get any more intense, out comes a 6 year old bottle. Bit of fear when the cork revelaed some mold, but holy crap, what an intensity!!!

mephisto (1275) - TAIWAN - MAR 21, 2007
reddish color with pink head, it has fruity aroma that’s mixed with cherry and vinegar. very tart flavor, really hurts my throat. but it is still a lambic that’s appreciable.

KnutAlbert (6363) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2007
33 cl bottle, bought at the brewery. A lambic with cherry overtones, none af the mature roundess or softness of other krieks. Sour and acidic. I find this refreshing, but it is not for beginenrs. Sour apples, sour cherries, almost vinegar. Cloudy, a bit yeast.

JK (4865) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Tasted at Cantillon, Brussels. Sour barnyard aroma. Extremely sour, bu the cherry is clearly there and like Gambrinus, this is real fruit flavor and not a syrup. Red color. Excellent.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2007
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Vintage 2002: Bottle courtesy of Mike (Eyedrinkale) Pours a nice hazy bright red with a well retained head. Bright aroma with wood notes, sour farmhouse, horse blanket, lemony hints and of course cherries. It has an extremely tart flavor, makes me pucker, especially the first sip. Dry as a bone, with a lemony like sourness. Stuff is pretty drinkable though, a nice palate cleanser.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2007
Pours an almost clear ruby with a creamy pink head. Interesting to note that of the 3 * 750ml bottles I bought in Belgium, the one that I bought at the supermarket was the best, it had a better, more uniform carbonation and more balanced feel to it than the ones that I bought at the brewery and a beer shop. Must have been sitting nicely on that shelf for a long time. Anyway, enough ramble... Aroma of wet hessian and a light tart dry cherry, perhaps some light ginger and almond too. Flavour is medium tart, fresh cherry, brett, almond, pit tannins combining very well. The finish is quite long, fruity and tart... I just love the finishes in the cantillon range. World class.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy rose-red color with a minimal pink colored head. Aroma of yeast, barn, cherry, lemon, vinegar. Flavor is tart, sour cherry, acidic, vinegar, yeast, oak. Palate is medium, highly carbonated, super crisp, ultra dry, sour finish! Wonderful!
