4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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...
