3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark red coloured. Light bordoux head. Dark fruits and round taste. Short aftertaste. Will most likely be pretty good for fish apetizers.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 on tap at the Moan and Dove. $10 for a 8oz glass! I guess thats what can be expected with a $400 barrel and a 750 that sells for $40 a pop. I love cantillons, but was a little dissapointed with this one. Same cantillon nose-funky and earthy. flavor was a bit like a mild sour red wine. i felt that the palate was lacking a little bit compared with some of the other cantillons. did get a tad more complex at the beer warmed up a bit. good, but not great. Still glad to get to taste, but not eager to fork over those 40 bones for a bottle just yet.
It’s been 7 years since I had this on tap at the moan and dove--that in itself is hard for me to believe. But I don’t know what was up my ass when I put in this rating, maybe I was pissed about paying $10 or whatever it was for the six ounces. But damn this is a fine beer. So happy to see Brad pull it out around 2am. I drank a shit ton of lambic in the wee hours after the GT mainly thanks to Brad Larkin. I want to live in his cellar.

Hazy red appearance. Slightly sour. A like the complexity a lot in this. Some sour wood, oad, is touching the finish. A really elegant and interesting brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The pour reveals a cloudy reddish brown color with a ring of white lace. Strong aroma of tart and sour fruits with some barnyard. Excellent flavor of sour and acid fruits (grapes?),barnyard and it is also dry. The mouthfeel is dusty and the body is light while the carbonation is gentle. Excellent lambic but maybe not worth 30 US$.

Perhaps one of my greatest regrets is not being able to lug more bottles from Cantillon home. A great example. Tanins play against the sour brett, the result being a complex symphony of flavors only those brave enough to endure the assault will enjoy. Right up there with the vigeronne ... and after all, which is better? Red wine or white?

Sampled at the "let’s piss off Clark" tasting, thanks goes out to Beerbuzz for this one, which must have cost him mucho dinero.
Lovely opaque, freshly crushed cranberry juice, the pearly white head was nice. A few flakes didn’t rain on it’s parade too much.
Wow, get your nose close to your glass and the aroma just grabs you by the collar and pulls you in. As funky as I’ve ever smelled from this brewery, which is saying a lot. It smelled like red life savers, grapes and hay mixed in horse shit. How could I possibly like this? But I just do, maybe I’ve got scatologic tendancies...
Bone dry and decent mouth-puckering acidity, it was very well attenuated. The fruit was sort of there but it was more like freeze-dried grape peels. The last time I had this was in Belgium and it had much more wine-like characteristics, but I think I liked this bottle better, the aroma sold me.

[ Bottled ; chilled ; 2004 vintage ]
A fully diminushing small fizzy white/pink head that tops up a hazy light red /brown/pink body. No lacing. Few thick black particules. No bubbles. Very dry nose, acidic and funky tart... harsh hay ... brett at its best. Oak is definitly there and red wine is subsequent, but present.

750 ml bottle, 2004, Montreal Sourheads gathering on February 26 2006. Translucent, dirty-rusty pinkish orange with a touch of head and lots of visible black yeast particles....nose is extremely dry, sour and funky with hints of old dry grapes lingering amidst the brett, light woody character emerges with more sniffing....the nose dry as it is hardly prepares one for the arid nature of the body, sour and smooth, with very subtle hints of apple and grape blending effortlessly and merging into a seamless light acid fruitiness that lingers long after the supple, airy liquid is gone....interestingly, the flavor profile really doesn’t change much from first sip through last, from the front of the palate through the aftertaste; its not the most complex of Cantillons, but amazingly drinkable for all its dryness.
