UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 Ok, one of my last final rates before I retire and turn professional with my current beer project. As Cantillon has been such a remarkable and shamefully ignored brand I feel I should include them in my final rates On the eye this beer is extremely pleasant. Extremely red on the side but if you hold it up to the light there is a lovely sunbeam golden red colour which is really stunning. it is very hazy and dark but the colour is still gorgeous. The aroma is raspberries; perfume, white wine grapes and very faint lemons. The taste is plenty of strawberries, a sweet and ripe texture, the acidic levels is quite sharp and dry, very tarty but not too aggressive. The palate is sticky and almost lemon-tart like but very drinkable and an interesting taste of maybe elderflower combined with the raspberries. Really complex and challenging to describe. The sourness sticks to your mouth for quite some considerable time afterwords and this is no complaint. The finish is incredibly long; vinegary and woody. This beer is a bottle from 2008 and has evened out well. A classic lambic. Bought from Utobeer in Borough Market, London.

simont1 (462) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2015
Deep raspberry aroma, almost black cherry and blackcurrant reminiscent. Fruit bomb, not as much complexity but very good with what it has, as it warms up some earthiness comes forward, not a lot of the traditional barnyard qualities, but very good nonetheless.

stoutnick (780) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 20, 2015
Red light pour. Aroma is massive raspberries, mild tang. Taste is the same with perfect balance between fruit and tang. Great lambic, not quite the complexity of lou pepe kriek as fruit takes over more here but super delicious and solid.

anstei (451) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 19, 2015
Bottle at Zwanze Day Zurich, 2003 vintage. The best raspberry sirup I ever had. Wait no, I’m kidding. But it is damn good, has a strong raspberry flavour and it’s unbelievably dry. No sweetness at all.
