Thanks to turdfergusson for sharing this bottle with me. This glass of beer was full of the addictive funk that only cantillon can produce. The sour musty funk was balanced perfectly with the tart raspberries in this 2002 bottle. It was extremely sour and very sweet (lambicular perfection?) Each sip made me want to keep it in my mouth and enjoy the amazing cornucopia of flavors going on... I think we might have turned a couple of people onto lambics with this bottle... this was an amazing beer experience.

Vintage 2003. Enjoyed this milestone 1000 beer w/ bfeldman, who was hitting 500 at the same time (woo hoo!). Poured a very pretty cherry red color with a nice initial head, but no lacing. The aroma was of tart lemons, some raspberry. Flavor was all of that and some light cheese, leather, barnyard funk, all that stuff. Mouthfeel was acidic, nice tart punch. Nice stuff. Wow, 1000 beer reviews, a nice night cap too!

Pours red with no real head. Smells of balsamic vinegar, raspberries and barnyards. Taste is over the top sour and tarte with some nice sugary raspberry qualities.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm 30 April) – Vintage 2003 - Unclear dark red, very small white head; medium sized, very deep nose with lots of complexity: in one way it has fresh raspberry and raw sugar, in another it has very distinctive gueuze notes: horse, cow barn and some citrus; the body is super fresh with loads of acidity and sourness, it has very little fill. I think all the sourness that makes the body fill a bit thin and overshadows some of the complexity; very long very sour finish that builds up very well with a very harsh tannin that makes the beer chewy: initially loads of framboizen, later grapefruit, citrus and wood.
