bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2006
(750ml bottle, 2001 vintage) Pours a clear ruby body with a small white head. The nose exhibits mustiness, earthiness, sweat, and sour fruit characteristics. The age has nicely balanced the acidity and sourness with a dry, organically distinctive finish.

2003. Red colour with a small pinkish head. Nice fruity raspberry aroma. Flavor is sour raspberry leaving you with a nice and long fruity aftertaste. Very nice.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2006
2001: Pour was hazy pinkish red with a small red head...smell is exactly as I thought it would be...tart sour raspberry...taste was very strongly sour and funky with lots of raspberry tartness, but no real sweetness...

A pretty near perfect drinking (to type) experience. 2003. Just a pleasure to let the raspberry pour over your tongue. A nice cranberry color. A tart finish that leaves your crying for more.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 Tap, Max’s 72 hours. 2003. Light rose body with no head. Light raspberry aroma, barnyard funk, lacto-sourness. The flavor is immediately sour and slightly sweet with a nice compliment of raspberries, before finishing sour and dry, apples and lemons. The raspberries are just part of the equation here, you still can taste the Lambic, unlike Lindemans. The mouthfeel is light with soft carbonation.

2001, feb 2011. Amazing fruity nose, tons of seedy raspberries, light acetic acid. Taste is very sour, lots of acetic acid, lots of fruit. Very good, but brutish, just too sour.

TURDFERGUSON (3961) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2007 2003 vintage on tap at The Moan and Dove. (also have sampled several 2002 750’s) the color alone turns me on, a very deep pink witth a small fizzy white head. this stuff looks amazing. aromas of funk, sour raspberries, funk, and more funk. gotta have that funk! This stuff is great. Tangy and tart throughout and I really cant get enough of it. One of the best lambics ive had so far. yummy.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2006
A Mes rate: 75cl bottle from Cantillon. Another one that we had to promise the very good people at Cantillon that we would stash until it was ready. Not quite so worth the wait as the Kriek but still mighty fine stuff. Aroma although decent is a little too funky for me to be truthful. Appearance is a slightly hazy wonderful blood red colour. Flavour is very sour with all the usual lambic characteristics and just a polite nod to the raspberries. Dry and tangy without the lick of sweetness at the finish that the Kriek had. In fact the finish is almost lemony. Not one for anyone who doesnt fully appreciate lambics but for someone who does you will know that this could be better. Very good beer but not Cantillons best.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 20051012 2001, 750ml bottle at RLB YEHA-05 Murky, dark pink with fizzy pink head. Aroma had hints of berry, sure there was some nice brett and spicy yeast, and mint - in fact, I noted a distinct aroma of urinal cake. I’m not saying it was bad, that’s just what I smelled. Flavor is much more focused on berries and beer. Dry and rather harsh, sharp eff, sharp acidity. Really reminds of breakfast cereal with those dehydrated berries. I liked it, but it was the kookiest beer of the night for me.

2003 at Spuyten Beast of the Yeast. Wow, massive raspberry nose. Hugely tart. So much berry, this winner is all about doing fruit right. Up from 7-5-7-4-15

2001 bottle, the third Lou Pepe of the trifecta for me! surprisingly goldish yellowy color. light pinkish white head. tart and sour unripe raspberry aroma. tart and sour flavor but less raspberry/much fainter than I was expecting. makes sense though that the fruit flavor fades over time.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - DEC 12, 2005
2002 vintage, sampled at the Yeha. Poured a cloudy pale red. Sour raspberry aroma. Taste is very sour with good raspberry flavor, much more fruit presence than other Cantillons I’ve had. Forms phlegm in the back of the throat.
