Slight grape, wetting oak, slight pond water, wonderful sour with oak receiving a second run in the end. Fabulous example.

Bottle share.... Thanks, Mar!!! Aroma is sour with some hints towards grape. Appearance is purple with pink foam. Taste is sour with grape undertones. Palate is sour as balls. Overall, a great beer. Wish I could have it all the time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cheesy, funky, toe jam raspberry nose. Cloudy rose, medium pink head. Intensely sour, less funky, but still feety, more fruity, oaky raspberry. Tannic., but lots of wild character.

UXO (406) - CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Pours a crystal clear ruby red with a fat finger of pink head diminishing gradually to a thin skim and minimal lacing. Nose is tart cherries, apple cider vinegar, vinous oak and barnyard funk. Taste is tart berry (cherry and grape) with a perfect balance of sweet and sour, slight oak and funk on the finish. Mouth feel is light and lively, with a persistent prickly carbonation and a great dry finish. Wow. Even better than the Cantillon Kriek. The flavour is less intense, but more complex. Beautifully restrained tartness and wonderful fruity sweetness. Unlike the Kriek, I don’t get the impression of exuberant youth and the promise of future improvement; rather, it’s perfect just as it is.

Pours a dark red with a medium pink head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of fruits (white grapes?!), lemons, hay and light wet socks. Taste is dry and fruity, tart cherries is what I would have said but fine, merlot grapes. This is pretty subtle and not completely unlike the best oude krieks I’ve had. It is not too acid like most oude krieks, though. This is really classy. Body is light, carbonation medium-high. Mouthfeel is fortunately vinous. Finish offers some grapes and raw wheat. A great libation! P.S. Grape character gets more evident as it warms.

milo91hd (136) - Lecce, ITALY - MAY 21, 2014
Bottiglia da 75 cl 2013, colore rosso rubino con una schiuma poco persistente, l’odore richiama subito vino e mosto, al sapore altrettanto insieme alle note di legno delle botti di fermentazione. Un capolavoro

ElManana (510) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Cloudy ruby red, bloody red. Aroma of very young green apple, sour grapes, citrus and basket of cherries. Interesting flavours with soft cherry-plum aftertaste. One of my favorite Cantillons.

Bottle @ Home. One of my favorites. Lots of dark berries, grapes jam and vinous oaky bitterness. The acidic sourness and Cantillon funk is as always present.
