4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 75cl bottle. Aged 1.5 years (June 05th, 2011 - Dec 25th, 2012). Pinkish-red hue with minimal white head. Sweet and sour raspberry nose, a little acidic and spicy. Very nice, light with some tartness. Not overpowering or too sugary, very natural tasting. Excellent sample of a lambic.

Bottle 37,5cl bought at Cantillon, shared with Fabien at home. Nice aroma of raspberry, sour and acid taste. Although I am not a big fan of such beers, this one is quite nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
37,5 cl teku. Pours a nice pinky dense low/medium, low lasting head, nice considering lambics often have a minimal/no head; reddish orange to ruby colour, slight haziness, actually similar to Campari & soda, just to get the idea. Fruity, pungent, cellar mold, woody, brett/acidic, raspberries and red fruits notes, wow. Tastes very red fruity, berries, woody, winy/vinegar; low to moderate sweet fruity note, rapidly taken down by a medium/high sour acidic note, fused to a moderate and pleasent funky bitter note; nice raspberry and fruity final persistent after flavour. High carbonation, low/medium right consistency body, bit astringent, dry and long finish. A fabulous fruit lambic, with a marked but never overwhelming sour and acidic notes, wonderful aromas and drinkability -->Highly recommended

Oct. 2, 2014. Bottle from beerbistro. Awesome lambic. Beautiful deep pink colour. Not very carbonated. Very small amount of head, tiny bubbles. Very tart: raspberries, sour aroma aromas and flavours. Quite dry, but lovely with a salad.

Rödbrun öl med lättare rosavitt skum. Doft av syrliga hallon. Smaken är fruktig med en gedigen syra som drar i kinderna.

Hazy read with decent head for style. Aroma tart and sweet at the same time, lots of raspberry. Taste tart and fruity, lots of raspberry, very lambic-y. Palate tart and refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Straight away the familiar Cantillon aroma hits, but with the addition of slight raspberries. This is an older bottle so the sour notes are a lot more dominant.
Pours a beautiful rose red with perfect fine carbonation and lingering head.
The taste is dominated by a fine sour funk with crisp complexities, finishes very dry and crisp on the palate.
Overall this is as one would expect very refreshing. It is on the sour side so might be a little of a shock to Lambic newcomer, but given time this is a very rewarding beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle served in a Hoegaarden thumbler glass.
A: First of all nice bottle art. Traditional green glass which is corked and capped. Pours a beautiful and slightly hazy red color. Forms a big bubbled and fizzy pink head. Low retention and no lacings left. However, a thin layer remains for a long time on the top of the glass
S: Absolutely fruity and tart. Strong notes of raspberry. Vinegar. A bit earthy and metallic. Lambic yeasts
T: Very fruity as the nose. Strong notes of raspberry. Tart and metallic. Vinegar. Upfront is sour and dry. Strong notes of Lambic yeasts. End is quite tart and dry as well
M: Light and watery body. Good carbonation. Tart and fruity aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Traditional Cantillon, which means very fruity beer that is, at the same time, extremely tart and dry. In a nutshell, a Lambic masterpiece :)
