Redcolored, light head. Sour aroma of vinegar, rapbeery and cherry. Sour in taste, but still very lovely. Some cherry and vinegar in taste. A nice one.

2006 Botle from Ledgers; Nose of horse blanket, cherries, and some woodiness; raspberry colored with a medium pink head; flavor sharp tartness and some light cherries, the tartness lasting into the finish.

Bottle. Dark red beer with a light head. The aroma is very sour and the flavour is particularly tart and very very sour. Overall an OK drink.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Bottle from 2005. Clear red color with a small amount of light pink bubbles. Aroma of cherries, strawberries, sour fruit candy, and vinegar. Strong, sharp, sour flavors of cherry, raspberry, and strawberry. A slight hint of vinegar--very acidic. Very crisp and juicy mouthfeel, but with an amazingly dry finish. Mouth-watering stuff... can’t wait to get my hands on more from Cantillon...

TURDFERGUSON (4017) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2007
12 oz bottle from Sam’s. Just a beautiful looking lambic with just the perfect amount of carbonation and lacing. aroma is of fresh cherries, oak, horseblanket. Velvety smooth, yet adequately tart and sour, with sour cherry bubble yum, warhead, and vinegar accents. A little vinous at times but overall a very creamy mouthfeel with a thick yet gentle body. This is hard for me not to love.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Pours blood red with a thin head, this beer has a sour, cherry quality with the sour notes of vinegar. Ultimately leaves you with a clean palate. Very sour and tasty!

A pretty nice take on a kriek lambic, pouring with a nice attractive garnet or ruby color, nice pinkish head that had good retention (well carbonated beer). [I’m ignoring the cork pieces that ended up in this little sucker, despite being able to curse those folks at Cantillon for a bogus cork.] The aroma was funky funk funk horseblankets, bret, and tart cherries. Flavor followed suit, mouthfeel nice and crisp, boy was this tart and sour, took longer than a few sips to get used to.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Sour, yes very sour, hey did I mention this was sour. Tastes like cherry vinegar not that I know what that tastes like ,oh yeah maybe I do. Page 102 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 440 Classic Brews to go out of 500.
