Bottle fresh from the brewery. Bottled 22 october 2014. Pours a very sirupy viscosey pink red, murky. No sound during pouring even & hardly any carbonation! Interesting! Pinkish tiny head. I smell raspberry marmelade, forest fruit, some carbo hits the nose... And slight oak and tannins. Very soft to the palate and mildly sour & fruity in aftertaste. Slight sour Grape at first, then raspberry and some cherry pop up, followed by sugarry strawberry jam. Love the melassey structure, will age beautifully but should be tasted fresh from the counter too. Compare! The Saint Lamvinus is a beauty; soft, complex and different! Maybe misses some carbo, but it’s real nice for a change. Perfect to pair with certain meat dishes; skip the red wine.

Franckg (392) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Vintage 2013, vieillit un an. Très fruitée. J’ai détecté un goût d’olives vertes lors des 2-3 premières gorgées mais cela s’est estompé par la suite. Le goût du raisin est très présent. L’équilibre avec le côté acidulé des lambics est parfait. Une des meilleures de Cantillon.

Erzengel (5079) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2014
Schöne rote Farbe durch die Merlot-Trauben, fruchtig-säuerlicher Geruch, eigentlich weniger nach Trauben. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig-mild, angenehm säuerlich. Zum Hauptteil toll lambic-typisch trocken und dabei treten auch die ersten Frucht-Töne auf. Zum Nachgeschmack hin wird auch die angenehme Note roter Trauben deutlicher, dabei angenehm säuerlich und herb. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, sehr angenehm mild-saauer mit rotem Traubenunterton.
→ mal wieder ein klasse Cantillon-Bier!! 15/12/14/15

5oz. pour at the Flying Saucer St. Louis. It poured a nice red color with a small white head. The aroma was funky tart cherry, raspberry and light oak. The taste was very tart cherry, grape, sour apple and a long tart finish. Just awesome.

neongolden (728) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
(2013 bottle @ barVolo for Zwanze Day, Sept 20 2014) Lightly hazed dark rosé colour with a lacy pink-white head. Aroma of red wine, grape, bitter herbs, barnyard funk. On the palate, acidic red fruit wine character, woody, slightly spicy herbs, drying and barrel/tannic red wine quality in the finish, There is fruit sweetness at the core. Feels like some hop bittering and something like light grain in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with high active carb. Very harmonious combination of fruit and barrel with the underlying lambic, this is a fantastic sipper that sits somewhere between a fruit lambic and a stronger-flavoured rose wine and is probably better than most examples of either.
