Burgundy pour, some white fizzy head, looks almost still once it’s gone. Raunchy aroma, lots of funk, a bit of grape. Taste is lemon funk, sour grapes,lots of sour on the finish.

On tap at CBC, Clapham. Pours a cherry colour with a pinkish head. Aroma is lovely - wine, cherry, custard. a little raspberry. Light body, full carbonation. Dry and pleasantly sour with grapes, a little woodiness, lemon, strawberry... and more besides. Lovely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750mL. 2009 bottling. A: Plum tinted red. Thin whisp of head. N: Sour grapefruit , wine grape, oak, peppercorn, lemon, hints of cherry and leather. Earth. T: Home run hitter. Plenty sour, some malt and fruit to balance. M: Light, carbed, drinkable. Wonderful as the Cantillon wont. O: Another excellent beer, albeit not as fruit forward anymore. Delicious.

Bottle. Pours slight haze bold ruby, dark red with thin reddish white head. Smell is merlot grapes, citrus, light brett funk. Taste is sour grape, fresh red berries, cherry, strawberries juice, merlot tannins, a little acidic, slight dry wood towards the end. Would love to try again with more age. Delicious.

Notes from backlog. Was my second Cantillon, and I guess I had hyped it a bit too much. Very tart, but the grapes did not affect it to the degree I had expected.

Red. Aroma is subtle funk and grape. Taste is oak, grape, tartness, mild sweetness; lots going on. Overall, one of the best fruit lambics I’ve yet had.

Bottle share thanks to droofus. Slightly tart nose with tons of fruitiness.. Not very tannin like. This is awesome. Almost like a very tart grape soda. Perfect balance of grape and sourness.

DrewFace (467) - Rockledge, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours a deep ruby color. Big barnyardy, horse blanket, funky sour aroma. Big funky flavor as well, barnyard gueuze character. Fruity flavor, grape and sour cherry like in the finish. Big sourness throughout but balances well with fruity character.
