4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. The expected dry sourness of Cantillon is present from start to finish, the standard bradyardy stench and sour cherry is there. Got a slight fleshy cherry quality aswell as the sour skin. Also, funnily enough, got a touch of blood orange. This was quite dry, but the fleshy cherry flavour made it more bareable and very balanced, fantastic stuff!!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dated 1999, bottled in 2001. Bordeaux coloured, cloudy, wtih a thin and vanishing champagne-like pink head. A very good appearance, IMO. Fruity, cherries of course, and lemony aroma first, then leather hints. Robustly tart and very astringent, maybe the sourest of all the Cantillonís beers Iíve tasted since now. Old barrelís wood flavour, vinous. A great artisanal product, but too exclusive for me.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great cherry aroma, tart and smooth. Light hops, fruity and refreshing. Dark red hazy, nice luster, with pink lacing head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Starts very tart with great sour cherry flavor. High acidity, light hops. Finish keeps cherry flavor, spit inducing, with light astringency. After is light bitter, bit chalky. This was a 2001, and very smooth. Iíd like to try this in about two-three more years.

Super sour brew. This stuff was as tart as it was red. And as much like beer as drinking orange juice is . But anyway, overall it was tasty on a different level. I cant really classify it as beer becasue of the sourness and fruiness. Will probably not buy another bottle, but wasnt completely dissapointed in this one.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, Not much nose. Lite fruit cherry raspberry with a chlorine bleach mixed in. Hazy purple red color. Pink foamy head that died down quickly. Sour tart flavor. Cranberry and that chlorine again. Like pool water. Thin body. Bitter dry finish. This just canít be right, hoping its a bad bottle. I dumped half of it. Yuck.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This 2001 bottled brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized purple hued bubbles. The body was transparent uncarbonated and brown in color. It had a typical Cantillon Lambic aroma and a fruity sour acidic tingly mouth feel with the acidic taste lingering in the finish. The flavor was sour and very much like a Belgian Lambic.

Drew-LaPalooza brew #12: Deep bloody red, pretty pink head. All of the outdoor aromas that you could hope for, and more! Super sour tart - leaves me squinty eyed. Acidy at the back and then tons of sour bing cherry with a strong woody finish. Top notch!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drew-LaPalooza. Dark red color, pink head, musty, sour, outdoor feel to it. Sourness attacks the tongue, very carbonated on the palate. First time I had something like this I didnít know quite what to think. Now, I like them.
