dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pours a beautiful bright, opaque cherry red color with a massive pink head that calms quickly. On the nose there are notes of tart cherry, yeasty funk, sourdough bread, a little bit of vinegar and stewed tomato. The palate is really smooth for such an obviously acidic beer. Finishes crisp and tart after opening with tart cherries and big bready sour notes. A little but plain, but beautifully executed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light cherry and some grapefruit. Ruby red pour with good pink head. Tangy finish. Decent, but I made the mistake of drinking drie fonteinen Armand and Gaston first. Bottle pour at Sovereign.

manomarnypopis (11) - POLAND - OCT 17, 2016
Aroma: Strong, sharp, sourish, lots of horse blanket and rotten cherries, yeast. Appearance: Light, clear red, foam quickly sparkling and disappearing Taste: classic lambic taste, heavy sour, lots of funky accents, specific tartness, really sour, cherries dominating the beer, not too complex. Bitter and fizzy finish. Overall: Cantillon at its (regular) best, nothing special but very classic and distinctive.

Bottle - Vintage 2013 - Nice sweet and sour cherry. Deep clear red with a decent white head. Deep cherry and nice tartness with a nice clean finish. It nearly as acidic and tart as it has been. Very nice.

knasputte78 (608) - SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2016
Röd åt det ljusa hållet. Körsbär och röda bär i doft. Ganska lätt med en syrlighet på slutet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DCLawyer (2786) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Draft in tumbler at Sovereign. Cloudy red with small pink head. Acidic and tart cherries on the nose, with some lite funk and yeast coming in. Great depth, fantastic funky cherry taste. Awesome.

Fat på Akkurat på Zwanze Day. Djupt röd, något disig med fingerhögt rödrosa skum. Bärig och söt doft av körsbär, körsbärslikör, torkade äppelskivor och kanel. Lagom fyllig kropp, slät. Mycket körsbär i smaken, körsbärskaramell och sträva ekfatstoner jämte lenare havre. Märkbar sötma jämte syrligheten. Gott!

Draught. Pours a rich light red with a small pinkish head. Aroma is sour, acidic, and cherry. Taste is sour cherry, wood, lactic acid, and a tiny bit of funk. Dry finish. Light body. Moderate, prickly carbonation.
