sarro (123) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Fresher vintage (2010 or ’11) rated from notes in fall 2011. Pours raspberry red with fluffy clouded white heading. Smell is sweet wine grapes and raspberries. Taste is much more mild than typical aged Cantillon (fruit or otherwise). Very enjoyable tart finish that’s not too acidic. Incredibly unique and love how fruit forward the fresh vintages are.

Vintage 2013, vieillit un an. Très fruitée. J’ai détecté un goût d’olives vertes lors des 2-3 premières gorgées mais cela s’est estompé par la suite. Le goût du raisin est très présent. L’équilibre avec le côté acidulé des lambics est parfait. Une des meilleures de Cantillon.

Sampled during RBSG. From notes. Fruity and funky with a long, dry finish.

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2014
Schöne rote Farbe durch die Merlot-Trauben, fruchtig-säuerlicher Geruch, eigentlich weniger nach Trauben. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig-mild, angenehm säuerlich. Zum Hauptteil toll lambic-typisch trocken und dabei treten auch die ersten Frucht-Töne auf. Zum Nachgeschmack hin wird auch die angenehme Note roter Trauben deutlicher, dabei angenehm säuerlich und herb. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, sehr angenehm mild-saauer mit rotem Traubenunterton.
→ mal wieder ein klasse Cantillon-Bier!! 15/12/14/15

5oz. pour at the Flying Saucer St. Louis. It poured a nice red color with a small white head. The aroma was funky tart cherry, raspberry and light oak. The taste was very tart cherry, grape, sour apple and a long tart finish. Just awesome.

Klimaet (298) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep dark hazy red with a thick white head. Aromas of tart, dark red berries. Raspberry, cherries, red grapes. Lots of red wine notes and alot of sourness. Taste is tart rich red berries up front, dry oaky notes, funk, slight barnyard. God damn, this beer!

neongolden (563) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
(2013 bottle @ barVolo for Zwanze Day, Sept 20 2014) Lightly hazed dark rosé colour with a lacy pink-white head. Aroma of red wine, grape, bitter herbs, barnyard funk. On the palate, acidic red fruit wine character, woody, slightly spicy herbs, drying and barrel/tannic red wine quality in the finish, There is fruit sweetness at the core. Feels like some hop bittering and something like light grain in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with high active carb. Very harmonious combination of fruit and barrel with the underlying lambic, this is a fantastic sipper that sits somewhere between a fruit lambic and a stronger-flavoured rose wine and is probably better than most examples of either.

eduardovl (969) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
750ml bottle served in a Hoegaarden thumbler glass. A: First of all, beautiful bottle art. Beautiful label and corked and capped bottle. Pours a dark red to purple color. Slightly hazy. Forms a big bubbled and fizzy pink head when poured. Low retention and practically no lacings left in the glass S: Very fruity in the nose. Very fruity with strong notes of grapes. Very tart with some notes of malts. Lambic yeasts in the end T: Very fruity, tart and dry taste. Strong notes of grapes. Quite vinegar. Lambic yeasts M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Tart and fruity aftertaste O: Very drinkable beer. Delicious Cantillon is pleonasm ;) [ BA Review @ 1/30/2010 ]

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Cantillon’s red grape lambic, referring to a 19th-century tradition from Hoeilaart where grapes were and are still grown, but where lambic has ceased to exist since then. This product is made in very limited quantities and not easy to find on the Belgian market. It is a ravishing purple red beauty with lilac foam and ’champenoise’ sparkles, very complex, extremely fruity, lovely funkiness, and one of the most elegant lambics I ever tasted, though I do prefer the white grape version called Vigneronne over this (but only very slightly so).
