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!

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 Light haze, beautiful bright red body with a small pink head. The aroma is cherry, lactic, horseblanket, cobwebs abd cheese. The flavor is cherry, yogurt, very dry, bright acidity and almonds. Medium/light body with dense, soft carbonation, slightly bitter, dry and very sour 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...
