Perfect cherry colour with pink mousse top. Almost smells like rosé wine, but more fruity. Well rounded with the sour sweetness of cherries and typical lambic taste, but the finish though balanced between sour, sweet and dry is not quite as long as I expected.

Bouteille 75cl. Moustache Blanche. Une belle robe rubis surplombée d’une mousse rose et délicate. Le nez de cerise, avec une touche légère de chêne. La bouche est bien équilibrée entre l’acidité et l’arome gourmand de cerise avec des notes légères de grenadine et de citron. Finale sèche, boisé et bien fruitée. Une bière délicieuse..."Un ciel liquide qui parsème d’étoiles mon cœur"....

Sampled at ESBLS. It poured a slightly hazy pinkish/red color with a white head. The aroma was of funky cherries, oak and yeast. The taste was of tart cherries, berries, funky yeast and vinous oak. The finish was fruity with a lingering sour cherry and apple aftertaste. Very nice.

TheJvd (830) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2014
37.5 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy red with a large, quickly disappearing, pink head. Aroma is actually quite sweet with cherries, wood, some barnyard, red fruits and some tartness. Taste is medium sour with quite some sweetness as well, cherries, fruitiness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbo. Nice and refreshing.

Sampled at esbls. Thanks Jason R. Aque red. Sour funky tart cherry nose. Bigger malts than expected and they are nice. It is perhaps the most drinkable Cantillon for this non sour lover. Yeast and funk are nice. Really interesting.

@ Nedre Mölla. Fruity with a lot of cherries and berries, really sour and dry. The finish is long and dry.

Poured from bottle at home. Pours intense red with a pink head. Smells of fresh cherries. The taste is intense with cherry, a bit dry with medium carbonation. Really opened my eyes for krieks.

Poured at the end of our tour at the Cantillon’s braserie. Dark red with a small white head. Aroma is acidic and slight of cherries and oak. Taste is sour with natural cherries (no artificial flavours). Refreshing and enjoyable.
