Delicious, but not my favourite Cantillon. The burgundy barrels seem to even out the flavor more than I want them to be evened. I prefer very sour and funky lambics, and this just didn’t quite do it.

Samuel214 (603) - SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2016
Fat på Akkurat på Zwanze Day. Djupröd, lätt disig med litet vitrosa skum. Frisk bärig doft av hallon, röd vindruva, röda vinbär, citronkoncentrat och stall. Välbalanserad, fyllig kropp med lagom torrhet och syrlighet. Friska bäriga toner i smaken med röda vinbär, röda vindruvor och fina, sträva ekfatstoner. Briljant god!

Mad_Ferret (1006) - SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2016
Draught at Akkurat. Zwanse Day 2016. Deep hazy red. Soft mix of tart red berries, cherries and dark grapes with soft oak and funk. Taste is in the same line but its major feature is how smooth and nicely mixed it is. Super clean. Medium, soft, soft and dry. Super good.

750 mL bottle. Bottle dated 11/21/2010, I believe. Tough to read as it’s smudged. Originally reviewed 7/26/2012. Murky/hazy pinkish purple. Not quite a burgundy. The head is gone before I even get a chance to look at it. Acidic and musty grape smell. The fruit isn’t a bright aroma, but rather a general aura of grape surrounding the lemongrass and other lambic aromas. Sour, but not overly so. The grape flavor again isn’t bright, but more of a background flavor cutting some of the acidity. Oak and tannins dry it out in the finish, but there’s a deep musty character in the finish that comes across as a deep barnyard funk. Heavyish, even though it really isn’t. Lower carbonation. Drinks like a wine. Not the most amazing fruit flavor I’ve had in a lambic, but it certainly doesn’t detract from the beer. I feel as though the Cantillon lambic profile calls for lighter fruits, a la Fou Foune.

pivnizub (10179) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
Bouteille: Rosé coloured, nearly clear, big - but quickly collapsing - pinkish head, lively carbonation; solid dry fruity (a bit cherry-like) nose, presumably some wood underneath, distinctive cellary and bretty aromas in the background, malic and/or citric acid detectable as expected; solid dry - fortunately not extremely dry, as expected - sour flavour, medium bodied and - surprise - quite soft by Cantillon standards; dry sour-fruity finish, balanced by a little residual sweetness. Superb stuff, pretty well drinkable...

Bottleshare at EBBC, cloudy deep purple with a thin ring, clean acidic nose, puckering sourness with lemon and soft fruit emerging in the finish.

mateuszk (2156) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours cherry in colour, very small head. Aroma of tart cherries, grapes, wood, green apples, barnyard. In taste sour with citrusy and berries flavour, notes of leather and light note of sour cucumbers (just in the back). The beer is light bodied, carbonation is high, the finish is very tart and dry. Great brew.
