1979 bottle: Acidic raspberry aroma. Dark yellow colour, small white head. Looks quite lively for a 25 year old beer. Very acidic vinegar flavour with a hint of raspberry. Something like white wine with vinegar. Earthy, slightly mouldy flavour. Fresh bottle: Berry aroma. Unclear red colour, very small pink head. Clear raspberry flavour with some acidity, also in aftertaste.

Compared side by side with NG Rasp Tart. We thought it would be an interesting experiment. Big bottle...poured a very spritzy reddish, not quite as clear as the NG. Nose is funky..some fruit, but mostly sour aromas. The flavor is the same, but the red fruits (strawberry, raspberry, etc) do come through a tad. Yep, this is all about the lambic...very tart and sour. Thin to medium bodied, acidic, sour, and dry in the end. Not my bag man, but a nice ale given the intent.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 (on bottle) dark abricot/strawberry colour, no head. aromas of barn and raspberries, tart flavour, witch kind of knocks the fine details out out. Still a fresh and clean, sour sucker.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Just when I thought I was getting a handle on the style - - - - This looked really nice in the glass, an orange/ruby body with a minute white head. But the aroma is more of a stench. Yes, there’s some fruitiness, but that which probably came from a sweaty fat jock in his gym socks stepping atop some old, rotting berries. The flavor is sour in a stale kind of a way, a decaying tartness that seeks to curl in upon itself. The finish is a rancid sourness that promotes a foamed pink drooling from the corners of my mouth. I had to wash. And shave. My ear blew off.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy rose with a thin off-white head. No lace to speak of. Smell is very sour, Barnyard, musty aromas. Sour raspberry and cherry aromas. Funky and lightly salty.
Taste is like the smel but a bit more subdued. Horseblanket and sour cherry. Tart raspberry and funky. Did I mention sour? A light sweetness though as well. Musty. Full bodied flvors in the mouth and a lingering puckering sourness. This is the second Cantillon I have had. This one is nowhere near as sour as the 100% Kriek Lambic but is stillnot for the faint of heart. Pretty drinkable for a traditional lambic.

As i was expecting with Cantillon, big sourness in this brew. The raspberry that shows is very nice providing a nice trailing finish of flavor. Lots of dry wild yeast flavors that really stand out strongly with the acidity of this brew. I did enjoy this brew, but buying the small bottle was a wise decision, i don’t think i’m enough of a lambic lover yet to drink a few glasses of this.
