Kinz (3467) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Ruby pink tinged lambic, slight head dies quick. Piercing sour barnyard aroma. Flavor is the typical Cantillon funk combined with the faint remains of sour cherry, almost gone after 2 years in the bottle. A good lambic, but to really appreciate the fruit you should try this while it is still fresh.

harrisoni (14856) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 Bottle from Utobeer. Deep cherry colur with no head. Very sour lactic nose, no noticeable malt to balance. Sour cherries as well as iced cherries as daniel brown described it. Very sour and acidic in mouth. More of an experience than a beer really. Finish has cherries which are sour and acidic. I prefer Liefmans or kriek fantastyck. Re rate. Craft Clerkenwell tap lovely rich cherry aroma superb taste. Lovely

bb (7305) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Bottle. Rich purple-red beer with a tiny white head. Musty/ dusty fruity aroma. Tart flavor with a sour/slightly sweet underside. Musty throughout. Low carbonation. Light fruit. Try other lambics - I just couldn’t get into this one.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 10, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Bottle from Green’s, Atlanta - Pours a reddish brown with a fully receding white head. Sour acidic aroma with cherry,dusty yeast, and unclassifiable funk. Taste is initially quite sweet and sour, and other time reveals some fruitiness and oak. Finish is quite dry. Slick and lightly carbonated. For the adventurous. My first lambic, this was shocking.

Sampled after Cantillion tour - Pours light ruby with a pink head. Aroma of sour cherries and tart fruits. Mouthfeel is sweet and tart wit hsoft carbonation. Nice with complex fruitiness.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Tap at the flying rock. Very rich burgandy hue that reminds me of the color of cherry Kool-Aid. Tart/sour nose with just a touch of funk. The taste is not as sharp an tart as I thought it would be, but it is quite nice. Not my favorite Cantillon, but still quite nice.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - SEP 13, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2006 Bottled. Clear bright red color with no head, only a bit of white bubbles. Smells slightly of feet along with horseblanket and cherries. Sour cherry flavor with a dry finish. Notes, of barnyard and musty wood as well. Less carbonation than I was expecting. This is what I wish Sweet-Tarts tasted like! Very acidic.

Ratman197 (10882) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Bottle 2004 vintage poured a clear ruby red with a small quickly dissapating pink head. Aromas of sour cherries with some oak and mustiness. Palate was very crisp and tart. Flavors of tart pie cherries, some woodieness, a bit astringent and acidic with a dry tart finish.
