Medium pink head. Dark pink body. Sharpish raspberry aroma with notes of other fruits and light wooden metal notes. Intensely sour raspberry taste with notes of other berries. Somewhat bitter. Dries out the mouth. Dry, sour, wooden, lemony aftertaste. Quite nice. (0.375l bottle.)

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 Brux 07. Tasting at the brewery. Pours an almost clear warm red with a small pink head. Smells a bit of sulphur. Very citric with aromas of rasberry and a hint of cherries and minerals. Light bodied. Metallic finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Pours a hazy copper color with a fizzy one finger thick light pink head. No lacing. Aroma is raspberries, yeast, and a wiff of vinegar. Flavor is very tart with a touch of berries. Light to medium body. Donít think Iíll be able to finish this one. Lambics are not my cup of tea.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2007 Glass sampled at Brasserie Cantillon, Brussels. This was poured straight from the head brewer to my glass, so Iím confused as to it being retired - maybe I got really lucky and was there at the right time. Anyways. Deep ruby red bordering on a darkish pink, with a scum-cap pink tinged head. Aroma is a fresh blast of raspberries, with a slight tannic and musty earthiness playing around there as well. On the tongue, upfront raspberries and other fruity sweetness fades to a very tart middle. Sourness throughout the finish, which is deceptively dry and nice. Rasping, slightly yeasty after. Overall: raspberry cloying fades to a rounded sweetness which gives way to a tart finish. Nice.

Another enjoyable lambic. Pours amber with a tight off-white head with a hint of pink. the aroma is mustier than most Cantillons with tart raspberries, hints of sour grapes and tart cherries. There is an odd earthiness I canít pin down, but Iíve noticed it in another lambic. Medium / thin body that is ultra-crisp with a medium spicy carbonation bite. The taste has white grape skins, geuze tartness and a mere hint of raspberries. The finish has grainy spice, pepper and vinegar sourness. Lambics keep moving up my list for a favorite style and this one just helps the argument. Thumbs up for this nice fruit lambic.
