HULK777 (335) - - JUL 19, 2013
Fresh berry and citrus aroma. Crisp taste of redcurrant, cherry, gooseberry, and lime cest, the latter also dominating the fresh aftertaste. Sour on the palate, perfectly balanced. A fantastic, straightforward, still elegant kriek!

Bottle bought in Brussles. Hazy reddish with pink head. Aroma of sour cherries, fresh and fruity. Cherry taste prominent, but not overpowering. Distinct sour lambic taste with slightly medicine bitterness. Almost no sweetness.

Garlic_of_Doom (444) - SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2014
Hazy red with a pink frothy/fluffy head. Aroma has sweet red berries at first, then cherries and tart notes. Aroma has cereals/pilsner malt, tart cherries, wood. Thin, low carbonation, dry. Dry woody after taste.
Elegant, yet simple.

seynie (140) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2014
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"....

jandd1983 (2505) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 17, 2014
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 (815) - 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.

Strykzone (4836) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2014
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.
