GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2010 On cask, Kriek Moeder Lambic. Said to be 20% Schaerbeekse cherries blended with other cherries. Pours a cloudy red with a pink head. Amazing aroma of coconut, cherries, vanilla, almonds, other spices and a little tartness. Flavor mimics, with almonds and coconut really pushing through the cherries. Extreme complexity in sweetness, tartness and even mouthfeel. Just a touch of sour, a touch of tart, a touch of sweetness and a touch of earthiness. Smooth as can be, and super easy drinking. This beer rocks. The odd coconut flavors really make it special. Reminds me of some kind of coconut, almond and cherry butter cookie. Very fresh and possibly the most memorable beer Iíve ever had. I will remember this one for ages. Fantastic.

In The Rake. Great looking electric red in the glass. Fantastic balance of sour and dry peppery hops with just enough sweetness. Slightly woody, cherry pips, ripe fruit, funk and jazz. A rare treat!

A stunning Cantillon beer at the Rake! Great work by the Rake to give us TWO Cantillons in the space of a few months. Iím pretty gobsmacked! I consumed this with Ang with the presance of Rich and Glyn. Great company; fantastic beer. Dark red texture is stunning. So well balanced. Very long finish. Feel like my lambic palete has turned full circle. Great work in under a year. Iíd pair this wih a gateaux from the black forest or some dark chocolate. Thanks Tom for fantasitc conditioning.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2010 A Mes rate. Keg at the Rake.
Candy apple red, slightly hazy and zero carbonation just as it should be. Young lambic wheaty funk with a barrage of sharp fruity goodness. This. Is. Fucking. Sublime. So good itís almost comical. Each sip brings forth a huge shit eating grin that is beyond my control. Lashings of cinnamon and spice. Insane amounts of fresh fruity lunacy. So incredibly tarty, it should be x-rated. The mouthfeel is perfect. All the tartness sits around the edges and forms a tunnel of love for all the elegant sweet wonderfulness to fall into. Kinda like Emma Pierson in skimpy white La Perla undergarments, falling backwards onto a plush king size bed clad in crimson silk sheets. Itís clearly a thing of unrivaled beauty. Ok thatís my first half gone. Off to the bar for round two... Stunning fruit, just stunning. Very little acidity. More lactic than anything. The cherry notes are accompanied by strawberry, green apple, maybe even some apricot. Itís a full set of Jolly Ranchers. The length is amazing but however much itís hangs around, itís never enough. Iíve been hankering after this for a long time, and far from disappointing, it has exceeded my expectations. Utterly brilliant stuff. I think Iím getting the horn...

Not much carbonation by the time I got this but I expected that so rating based on the fact that it was still quite good and enjoyable. An experience to me because it actually tasted different than a lot of other ones similar in style. Funky with cherry and a little wood. Some earthyness and more fruit with a little lingering odd flavor. Still good.

BCTC. Many thanks to the incredible generosity of the RB crowd. Red with ring. Funky barnyard hay cherry aroma. Funky cherry sweaty horseballs hay barnyard with dry finish. Ok, I was drunk by this time, but my notes say I really liked this.
