4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vacker, rubinröd och härlig lyster. Lite funkig i doften som förväntat. Påminner snarast om en elegant kriek. Vinfatens bidrag kan anas lite lagom subtilt. Världsklass som så ofta från detta underbara bryggeri. Delar en flarra med Isabel en vanlig måndag.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
16.06.2013, cask @ Alewife Queens:
Tiny shortlasting head. Aroma is more like a fresh nice Sangria actually, red grapes, redwine barrel, citrus peel, grass. Taste is also in the fresh Sangria range, nicely balanced sour and fruity, red grapes, grass, citrus peel, sorrel, oak. Even as room temperatured this was just excellent. Ice cold with ice cubes in the summer warm would just be perfect!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours blood red with a small beige head leaving fantastic spotty lacing. Nose shows sweet, acidic berries with light tart and doughy yeast. Taste is rather easy going for a Cantillon. Sessionable sour and tartiness with heavy sweet citric and acidic berry notes. Perfectly balanced. Very good

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle (2012 vintage)
Considering how cheap this is at the brewery I wish I would have been able to bring back more. A phenomenal release is among not only the best lambics in the world but the best (so far) from Cantillon. I am glad I have at least one more to drink at some point in the future because it should keep for a very long time.
Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated cherry base is trapped by a stark white head. Sweet bing cherries, white wine, and a playful tartness sting the air. This is not overly acidic or vinegary but is perfect even relatively fresh.
Flavor / Palate - Vinegar and sea salt chips mix with a generous scoop of cherries and raspberries. Fruity and tart, it is not intense. That makes it disappear almost immediately until the bottle is down to the dregs.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011 bottle. Medium red wine pour, nice lasting carbonation and an aroma of decent lactic acid. Flavor is light sour red grapes, very tart, woody and dry. Worth picking up at least once, even at the price point.
