tectactoe (1940) - Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle: 2010 sticker. Bloody red body with crimson & copper tints; slightly lavender tinted head on top, pretty foamy but quick to settle to a lazy collar. Aroma of juicy raspberry, lacto lemon notes, funky wood, signature Cantillon critters, mild barnyard, lightly floral perfume, & a huge raspberry jam punch towards the finish. Juicy, jammy raspberry explosion on the palate. Fruity, tart, sour, & funky with a good bit of wood, lacto yeast, horsey funk, & mild sweat. Light acidity, some lemon flesh, & a sharp, finishing sourness. Puckering. A touch of yogurt in the back-end, finishing dry with lingering raspberry skins & soured wood. Insanely delicious beer.

2010 sticker. Ruby red pour. Sour. Sour and raspberry. Slight acidic. Nice and balanced. Good stuff. I think this was my favorite of the cantillon tasting.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
2006 : A hazed pink Gueuze with a thin off white head. In aroma, beautiful raspberry jam with acidic notes, lactic notes, refreshing and complex, beautiful. In mouth, a wonderful tart Gueuze, loads of lactic acid, lemon, raspberry, light salty notes, beautiful and intense. #OttBottShare. Bieropholie import.

"As I’d hoped, does for Framboise what the same year Lou Pepe did for Kriek. In short, one of the best, if not the best raspberry beer I’ve had (though it costs several times as much as New Glarus, it’s main rival). beautiful ruby red pour w pink head. quite the gusher (the beer level actually lowered as the head rose for several minutes after a gentle pour). wonderful full raspberry farm aroma. flavor equal measures sour and fruit. near perfect. too steep to get often, but i will revisit if i can."

Smell was raspberries and maybe a tad bit of plastic. Sour raspberry taste that struck a great balance between the fruit and the sourness.

freretoc (716) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 20, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl au Sherwood Pub (Nicorvo), couleur rose, belle mousse rose effervescence importante. Une bière acide sur la framboise la perfection de la balance entre le fruit et le lambic, une tuerie exceptionnelle !

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2014
Traditionally made framboise with fresh red raspberries; intended for export. Has all the barnyard funkiness and complexity of any of Cantillon’s best products; very sec, if not acid, but extremely clever balance between this ’neige’ lambic sourness and a ton of fresh, soft, gentle fruits; very long and dry finish, yet light on the tongue. Clearly one of the great masterpieces in lambic world, though I liked the kriek and the geuze in this series even better.

hackobock (1391) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle at Nüetnigenough, 2010 vintage. Pours hazy red with a pink head. Aroma is sweet and tart raspberries, light funk, oak, vanilla and grain in the background. Taste is tart and refreshing with distinct raspberries, light dry oak notes and barnyard in the background. Light/medium body.

750ml bottle at Parker Pie post-FoFA. Pours hazy pinkish. Aroma of funk and raspberries and light sourness and light oak. Incredible.
