Scopey (6138) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2013
Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. It pours deep red with a thick pink head. The nose is juicy cherry, light vinegar, musty, wood and earth. The taste is initially tart, fresh cherry, red grape skin, Granny Smith apple, some acidity, wood and light mouldiness, with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Juicy and fresh. A very drinkable beverage indeed.

On tap @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussel. Hazy dark pink body, medium light pink head. Nose is red berries, cherries, hints of straw and hay. Taste is mellow red fruits, raspberries and straw, with tart cherries and stable funk in the finish. High carbonation, light body. Very refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoyed on tap at Moerder Lambic in Brussels, Belgium at the start of what was a pretty crazy night. Appearance is a bright pink / ruby hue with a rich, bubbly head. Aroma of light cheese, cherries, wild yeast, smells delicate. Taste is good, at first the sourness is abundant but it settles down quite a bit. Rather live carbonation, tastes somewhat like a lightly flattened cherry 7UP. Pretty damn good stuff.

brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Hazed but bright red pour with a tall pink head. Fresh fruit/cherry aroma with a nice sweetness. Lactic tartness with nice lemon zest and green apple notes, some mild straw and grass, too. Overwhelming cherry flavor which gives a nice acidity as well as sweetness. Some lemon tartness, a bit of yeast, grass, yogurt, and must. A touch of sugar/candy, and a nice balance to it.

On cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. My first stop upon arrival in Belgium. This actually happened. To say this beer is gorgeous is an understatement. A stunning ruby hue that sits underneath an everlasting pillow of lavender foam (picture forthcoming). The smell is wonderful and inviting, with that distinguishable and inimitable cantillon scent. Lots of fresh cherries lead the way, with additional notes of yeast, tartness, funk. The flavor takes it up a notch. Sweet and sour cherries. So fresh and delicious. Just teeming with cherries and cherry juice. Amazing. The mouthfeel is one of the best I have ever experienced in a beer of any style. Creamy and silky smooth. Each sip lingers on the palate for several minutes. I only made it to this establishment once, but I stayed for several hours and was able to enjoy a few pours of this. Well worth the trip. Cantillon is my favorite brewery, and this beer was well worth the effort.

Svesse (6036) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2012
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Saint Gilles, 18 July 2012, as "Kriek Cuvée Moeder Lambic") Dark red colour with frothy, pink head. Fruity, acidic nose with notes of cherries, almonds and a touch of wild yeast. Fruity, tart taste with cherries, almonds, red fruit and a dry finish with a refreshing acidity. Very tasty and in excellent balance. Very nice.
