4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a orange blush. Aroma of cherries, raspberries, and vinegar. Very complex flavors with lemons, vinegar, oak, raspberry. The rasberry flavors are still present in this 2004 bottle. Not as tart and sour as I thought it would be. My first experience with a Cantillon was much more pugent and acidic. This is still tart and dry, but its not so overwhelming that I can’t enjoy it. This seems to be balanced well with the complex lambic and rasberry and cherry flavor. Very refreshing and delicate. Indeed a special beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light rose colored with a small, lightly foamy pink head. Aroma of cherries, raspberries, and sour apples. Taste is fruity, tart, and slightly sour. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a soft supple carbonation. Delicious!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a pinkish/orange color, without much head. Aroma was very sour, with a hint of raspberry. Flavor is much the same - quite sour, very sharp & crisp, with some raspberry undertones. Very dry.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 A clear cut essential re-rate. Beer 6 of Officially the Best Thursday in Beer ever in the existence of my life. A so called pallet cleanse, Bill from the other site provided a 1996 Vintage Bottle and damn damn damn it was sick. Really freaking amazing makes me want to buy a pallet and put it in a storage unit for a decade and watch it mature. Damn Damn Damn Damn
Beer 13 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/1/06 from the bottle at Cantillon. I sampled this after my tour. This framboise is dry and subtle and very tasty. The taste of fruit is not overwhelming but present in every sip

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Full acidic and ciderish nose. Apple-juice look, and mixed-soured-fruit taste. This beer was good in its 12oz size, anything more might have been unwelcome. Need to learn more about lambics...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared with Immy. From bottle. Poured a golden orange with small bubbles that clung to the sides of the glass. Nose is sour, lactic, with hints of raspberry underneath. Flavor is sour with an acidic aftertaste. Not much left of the taste buds after this one, although the palate is smooth. Grapefruit rind finish.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2006 Golden amber, with no head. Reminds me a bit of garbage juice (the liquid that collects in the bottom of trash cans and garbage bags). Nose is very sour.. almost like funky socks. Flavor is sour, with lemon, and vinegar.. made me gag on certain sips.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is fruity, raspberries, oak, sourness, nutty, celery, brown sugar and some barnyard notes. Very cloudy orange with a few floaties and a thin, white head. Intensely sour at first. The flavor just explodes in your mouth and forces your face into a pucker. Then other flavors come out, a nutty raspberry malt with a touch of chocolate. Fairly acidic with a mineral finish and crisp but lacking much carbonation.
