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.

Bottle at RBSG 2002. Pours a clear amber color with almost no. The aroma and flavor have crazy sour raspberry character, oak, acidic, some citrus, biting, not for someone new to sours.

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Thanks to ?. One of those ’how the hell have I not rated this?’ beers! Hazy cherry red beer, good pink head. Palate is light and dry, decent fine carbonation. Tart lemony sourness. A little cherry - raspberry tartness that develops a kind of cherry acid. Acid lemony finish. Too sharp for me.

Red bronze pour. Aroma tangy raspberries slight vinegar. Tastes balanced balsamic sour, raspberries. Even slightly seedy. Great balanced tartness. I think the fruit helps

JorgeLee (1699) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle, sourced from the brewery. 2011 vintage so not drunk young by any stretch! Pink fading to brown colour. Restrained matured funk. Fruit has mellowed and blended with the winey acidic notes of the lambic. Sharp and yet not vinegary or mouldy. Serious stuff.
