2001 Bottle. Red with pink tints and a head that soon disappears. Aromas are musty and sour cherries with wood and spices. Flavours are musty, woody and sour cherries with floral notes. There is some sweetness but not much, this is about acidicy but there are fruity notes. Tastes of the barnyard - wheat, mustiness and other agricultural detritus. That yeast really is magic.

2001 bottle purchased @ Premier. The more cantillon I have the more I fall in love with the brewery. Pale pinky red colour with a minimal white head. Great aroma and taset of wonderful sour cherries. A little bit of lambic funkiness to go along with it. I think I am converted completely to the sourness.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 21, 2005
2001 Bottle. Opaque pinkish red color with thin pink head with pretty lacing. Sour cherry wheaty aroma. Strong sour cherry flavor. I donít like sweet lambics, but this old style pure lambic is pretty damn good. Itís hard for me to rate it against other beers, but itís a tasty drink so I have to rate it pretty high. However, I have to drop down the overall rating a bit because itís so damn expensive. Granted I didnít pay for it, but it cost my buddy $30.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2005
1999: A wonderful lambic. The nose is fruity with the taste being sour almost like a good vinegar. Fruity on the palate as well as cherry is tasted in the finish along with an acidic bite. Very good.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2005
750ml 2001 bottle from beers of europe. Stunning bright red/purple colour. Medium dissipating head. Aroma of Cherry fruit and stone, lemons and apples on top of Cantillonís house aroma. Acidic fruit taste with Cherries lower in the mix than with the aroma. Long acidic finish. Gorgeous.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Georgeous ruby red color with a big fizzy purple head that totally dissipates. Aroma is sour vinegar, wet wood, dust. and a slight hint of fruitiness. Flavor is sour, chalk, wheat, cherries with no sweetness, mouth puckering and very refreshing. Happy New Year!!!

SimonB (66) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - DEC 1, 2004
Cherry red body, pink small head, virtually no lacing, fully diminishing. Dark (black) cherry aroma as weel as sweetness and sourness. Sour cherry and acidic flavors of soft complexity. Astringent mouthfeel (tart and sour), soft carbonation. Great beer. Sampled at MartinTís place with other RateBeerians for the "Montrealís Voyager Par Les Papillesí first tasting session".
