illidurit (2132) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAR 17, 2014
2010 vintage bottle shared at the January 2014 tasting in Santa Cruz. Aroma is ridiculous. Huge vivid luscious raspberry. Rich berry flavor, dense blackberry especially, sour citric finish.

GothGargoyle (1159) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Murky dark pink with a light pink head. Aroma is raspberry, sour candy, a little barnyard funk. Tart on the palate, but not crazy - nice balance of sweet and tart, dry finish. Taste is raspberries, tart candy, hint of wood. Yum

Bottle at Beer Bistro in Toronto shared with ontbeertaster. Strong tar raspberry aroma surrounded us as soon as it was opened. Dark murky berry colour, large white frothy head. Lots of sour and tart raspberries up front, after the first few sips the sour mellowed a bit and became very drinkable, with tons of raspberry flavour. Amazing beer.

blipp (6028) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle share by Max. 2001 vintage. This has pretty clearly suffered from age. It tastes like cheesy dirty fruity dump water. Big tart/sour oxidation, with some pungent funky grossness. Not good at all.

Erzengel (2561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2014
2007er Version, rated 2009.
Schöne leuchtendrote Farbe im Glas mit angenehm säuerlichem Himbeerduft. Der Antrunk ist angenehm säuerlich-holzig, mild mit fruchtiger Note. Der Hauptteil ist angenehm mild-holzig, moderate Säure, angenehm sauer-fruchtige Himbeertöne, die sich mit der holzigen Note lange bis in den Nachgeschmack halten.
Frisch-fruchtiges Bier, bei dem aber der letzte Teil des Nachgeschmacks teilweise doch etwas flacher wird, da die Säure schnell abfällt, die holzige Himbeernote aber bleibt. Trotzdem aber m.E. fruchtiger als das "normale" Rosé de Gambrinus. --> 14/12/13/13

Clownoisseur (210) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pours a deep red with a small pink head. Aroma is out of this world! So funky and cheesy! I could smell this glass for days! A nice tartness arises with aromas of ripe raspberry, some more funk, burnt rubber and hay. Taste is puckering tart, acidic and loaded with ripe berries. Some vinous notes creep in, along with some barrel notes. Such a kaleidoscope of flavors swirling around. The medium carbonation provides a lively, tart finish. Makes me crave the next sip!

pilgrimoutlaw (766) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2014
2009 bottle pour at Teresa’s. Ruby red pour with pink head. Raspberry, apple, funk. Moderately sweet. High bitterness. Light, crisp body. My first Cantillon. It’s reputation is well deserved.

mathieuc (1248) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
Pours a dark candy red with a medium but quickly diminishing pinkish head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of hay, cork, funk and really acid. Taste is fruity and full of real raspberries, pits and everything else. It is really acid but in an elegant way, never harsh. Flavors of wood, mushrooms and plain ol’ funk (really cheesy). Body is light and it feels vinous overall. Carbonation is on the lower side. Nice!

Meilby (7386) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle 750ml @ Haakonm Pours red with a pink head. Aroma has notes of raspberries, barnyard, funk, tart. Taste is light sweet and heavy sour with and long dry, sour and raspberry finish. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft to fizzy

Buongiorgio00 (754) - - JAN 3, 2014
Annata 2010. Un deciso sapore di lamponi che si lega all’acidità morbida e rotonda che invade ogni angolo del palato. Avrei voluto, anzi dovuto, invecchiarla qualche anno ma, ho preferito seguire il consiglio degli antichi: carpe diem! E ne è assolutamente valsa la pena! Esperienza magggica!
