On tap at Capone’s in Norristown, PA, served in a small wine glass. Appearance was good but a little put-off by the cherry cough medicine color. Nose was exactly as expected, and hoped for! The musty aroma and somewhat tart taste combined well with each taste. This offering from Cantillon is probably the one that you need to enjoy with your nose as much as your tongue. Taste and mouthfeel are good throughout the sip; does not last long after you swallow except for a dry sweetness.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 On tap at Capone’s in Norristown. Considering I wrote the descriptions for the tap list last week, I should hope that people won’t mind my notes looking similar to the brief descriptions seen in the restaurant. In any case... Appears a ruby reddish toned pink with a small, bubbly head that quickly fades into nothing. No lacing is left and the spider legs are very faint when tilting the glass and brought back to center. Smell is of tart, sweet raspberries, barnyard funk, rubber, wildness, light horseblanket, and oak. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with vinuous notes and oaky vanilla pushing through the raspberries and wild funk. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, vinuous, sweet & tart, dry, slightly acidic but mellow.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2008 Draft at Capone’s (Norristown, PA). Cloudy red with no head. Tart, earthy aroma, with a hint of red grape and malt. Very tart; again with notes of grape, complimented with wood, tannins, and pepper. Long, sharp, tart finish.

jason (1681) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Draft at Capone’s. Poured a cloudy cherry red body with hardly any head. Aroma is of cherry, strawberry, yeast, and farmhouse. First sip is of cherry. Farmhouse, tart and slightly sweet with a small sour tone to it. Light sugar and smooth with a light sweet aftertaste.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Draft at Capone’s. Ruby reddish color with aroma of funky horseblankety notes, some earthen malts, some grapes, and some aged cheddar. Tastes extremely tart, as usual for these guys, with a lot of grape flavors coupled with funky cheesy earthy hints. Lively on the palate, this one stays fruity and tart, with increasing funkiness as it warms.

Draft, Max’s 3rd Annual Belgian Beer Festival. Hazy, ruby-red color; white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Funky, viscous nose; showing horseblanket and tart red fruits. Medium-to-full, tart mouthfeel: tart cherries, horseblanket; plenty of funk and red fruits. Medium, tart cherry and citrus finish.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Hazey, maroonish-red body with a small pink head. The flavor is horseblanket, cheese, very funky and raspberries. The flavor is raspberries, yogurt, lemon and lots of bright lactic acid. Medium body is soft and round with a long tart finish. Superb.
