3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy darkish pink color on the pour with minimal white fizzy head. Nose of vinegar slightly with fruits big on grape. Flavor is quite sour with a great grape flavor coming through past that sourness. I realy enjoyed this brew it just didnt rate that high on some of the levels, but overall that 17 should give an idea where it rates on my list.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Off notes 4/2007. Cork reads "bottled 2005".
Pours a slightly clouded ruby with a pinkish hue to it. Nose is the typical sour with slight wood attribute and a fairly firm antiseptic tone as well. I find the flavor a very smooth and traditional sour with the fruit influence. There are berries and a touch of wood on the flavor. It is extremely sour, but I still feel like it is well within acceptable limits as I am taking long swigs of this one. I can’t help it. Feel is nice and thick on the liquid and slightly carbonated. It’s nice and smooth going down.
Overall this is fairly sour, as these guys always are. But I think it is extremely smooth and doesn’t really carry any harsh characteristics at all. Quite easily this might be the easiest drinking lambic I have had to date. Well worth the price.
I had this on cask at Spuyten Duyvil 6/2007, and it was just as amazing.

750ml Bottle. Nice deep red with disappearing pale pink head. The aroma and taste is sour with cherries / grapes / berries coming through strong. The finish has a pleasant dryness coupled with it being a little tart. Overall complex but drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2007 750 ml bottle. A hazy deep red beer with a pink head that disappears very quickly. The aroma is sour with fruity notes (berries, grapes). The flavour is tart and refreshing with a woody notes and a sour finish. perhaps more drinkable than other Cantillons. Medium body, complex.

cloudy red, fine beige head,
strong musty earthy aroma with a tart essence,
lots of tart fruity character with an earthy muskyness, the fruit character keeps growing and keeps up with the tartness,

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, head-to-head RBESG 07. Slightly reddier than the unblended, thin white head. Nose is sweet, slightly more balanced than the unblended, vinous and really packed with fruit. Mouth is grapey gueuze with some sweet acidic tones. Tartness towards the end is to die for. Superb.

Bottle bought at the brewery. Lovely cloudy red with a thin head. Full fruitiness, lambic laced with grape juice. but the lambic dominates totally.
