4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: wonderful, complex, rosen, perfume, malty, sourish, old, musty, rich, grapy, fine bath bombs, cherry sweetness, tulips.
Appearance: really dark cherry red with quickly fading pink foam. Very nice. Opaque.
Flavour: initially soft, grape flavour. Sexy sourishness, vague sweetness, well balanced & very elegant. Vinous, lactic aftertaste.
Palate: powerful but incredibly soft and smooth. Frighteningly smooth. Distinct but nice carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2007 Courtesy of Joebrew. The aroma has cherry, and lots of it. Considerable barnyard aroma. Flavor has lots of cherry and light oak. Raw grape flavor. Acidic and sour, but the cherry is still there. Bright, Burgundy color.

Thank to Joebrew for sharing. Dark red pour iwth a delicious sour nose. Dry body with hints of oak, cherry, grape, and barnyard. Sourness almost had a lemon tinge to it for me. A most excellent pour.

Bottled. Poured medium rose with a very nice initial cap of light pink head. Aroma was of soft vinous notes accenting some dusty barnyard funkage.. lemon and vinegar in there as well. In the flavor, tart vinegar washed over the front of the tongue with wheat and lemon-accented dust across the middle.. hint of sweetness along with the tart, lemony-vinous finish. The tartness was not too aggressive, and the overall balance was superb.. well-integrated barrel characteristics. Great one!

Bottle. Hazy, orangey red with a light pinkish head that disappeared completely. Woody nose, lemony lambik in the background, just a hint of other fruit. Good lemony lambik flavours, fruit is more pronounced in the mouth and marries well with the lambik. The wood comes in especially towards the dry finish. Another great invention from Cantillon.

750ml bottle. 2006 bottle. Aroma: Very vinous with a strong dose of dry red grapes. Nice sourness with a bit of red wine vinegar. Dusty funk with some light cheese. Oak comes out more as it warms. Appearance: Pinkish-red in color and quite hazy. Light pink head was small and rocky with good retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Very fruity with vinous grapes being the star. Nice tart sourness. Oak and funk hit me at the same time. Funk is dusty/cobweb with a fairly strong cheesiness. Dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Pricey but worth it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ my brothers (Vac) & Abby’s (zug4abby) house warming party. Ok you have to ready for this one. After being in San Diego for a few days and drinking IPA’s and IIPA’s one after another followed by a few big & impy stouts, I think Abby pulled this one out just to screw with my palate. Poured a reddish brown with a thin pink head. The aroma found that lambic sour fruitiness. The flavor was tart to say the least with a fruit and light citrus blend. Medium body and tart aftertaste. Don’t be scared of the sourness. Just be ready for it. Very decent overall!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 75cl. Opaque red/purple colour with a small pink head. Aroma of wood, raspberries, cherries, yeast and that delicious scent of lambic. Initially a fruity flavour, unripe berries and just very sour. It gets better after a few sips (when the taste buds go numb...) and release a more vinous flavour. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Personally I would have liked a softer carbonation but this is definitely a great beer!
