Pours fuchsia with a fast fading pink head. Smells exceptionally vinous, clearly like merlot. Taste is sour and fruity, without a doubt sour grapes. Medium-bodied with an astringent texture and prickly mouth-carbonation, Cantillon Saint Lamvinus finishes with a soft tartness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear red/pink with almost no head (very low pink). Aroma is of sourness, grapes, fruits. Taste is sour, fruits, grapes. Palate: Ligth body. Overall: Very interesting grapes. Reminiscent of a clear young table wine. As the sourness feeling fade out, sips besome more and more interesting (imo). Not quite as complex as I would have expected. Very easily drinkable. A somewhat unique beer. I was surprised I did’nt get any barnyard/funk, maybe hidden by the grapes.

Clear deep pink, with a light pink head. Aroma of fresh grapes, red berries, orange peel and some barnyard funk. Taste is tart to mellow tart, with a fruity, grape/berry aftertaste. Prickly mouthfeel due to the rather feisty carbonation. Marvellous beer.

Bottled 750 ml. -Courtesy of Marko, shared with him and heavy. Hazy red coloured, medium sized pinkish head, sourish nose. Sour fruity and cherries taste with acidic grapes notes. Dryish finish. Not the best Cantillon but pleasant one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 version that I got at the brewery. Poured a hazy red body with a pinkish head. Light smooth aroma, wine, some malt maybe, sweetish, and some butter. Hm. Mild fruity taste, slightly dusty, somewhat sweetish, a bit funky, peppery, very light acidity/bitterness. More or less balanced and very pleasant, though it might not be my favorite Cantillon, it’s yet another great beer from the brewery.

Årgång 2006. Smak och doft av svavel, ek, syrlig och vinös. Sur, torr och med en trevlig beska. Gott.
