Aroma is cherry, tart, funk, skins, nice. Appearance is red, light pink head, hazy. Taste is cherry, tart, vinegar, skins, funk, meh. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, funky vinegar aftertaste. Overall, I’m not sure I get the Cantillon hype.

1996 vintage, so almost old enough to drink itself in this country. Bottleworks tapped, to double fool people, and I’m enjoying it. Cranberry juice pour with no head. Doesn’t come off as 20 years old, although I have little to compare. Cherry Kriek to a near perfection. Sourness 8/10. Loved the beer.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4185) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 26, 2016
Hadn’t realized I’d not rated this yet so thanks to KyotoLefty for sharing this 2010 vintage for my birthday - cheers. Drunk side by side with a Mariage Kriek 2012. Deep clear red with a light pinkish head of foam. Big funky cork cherry aroma. Dry, very tart, oaky, acidic and woodsy. Light bodied and dry. Nice but I preferred the Mariage.

Lote embotellado en 12/15...le falta reposo y se nota. Lambic rules en aroma y sabores...mil matices compleja. Cerezas sublimes. Habrá q comprar más para guardar.

Beautiful red color with a pink head. Smells awesome but bit quite as sour as Rose. However this is a great sour that I would always come back to.

martin00sr (2390) - Haderslev, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2016
To celebrate my tax return... Cloudy, redish amber with fluffy pink head. Aroma has light funk and notes of cherries. Acetic and acidic flavour with a good dose of sour cherries. Bone dry.

Bottle at Cafe Sara, february 28th 2015. Beautiful hazy red body with pinkwhite lacings. Tart aroma with cherries, barnyard, wood, the funky Cantillon yeast. Taste is sour, sweetened a bit by the cherries, still maintaining that peel-off-your-teeth feel. Dry lactic finish with berries and barnyard. Excellent!
