UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 37.5 cL bottle, cheers Jeppe. Pours hazy maber/redish with a fizzy and quickly disappearing pink head. Acidic dry brett aroma with a tart fruit note.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2004
UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 [Vintage 1999] The aroma is sweet and sour with notes of cherries and grapes. The color is an unclear deep red and it has a fine pink head though disappearing. The flavor is sour with strong grape notes and acid from the wild fermentation. It ends on a woody dryness. This beer has a lovely flavor.

(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy reddish with a rather handsome, pinkish head. Markedly sour aroma. Very sour flavours with typical Cantillon barnyard notes - this is like red wine vinegar with some fruityness. 120106

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2005 Bottled. Deep red with aroma of red berries. Woody and vinous, and unusually sweet for a Cantillon. Still tart and complex with a citric acid finish with some bitterness, seemingly from the stones (or do you say seeds?) in the grape.

Extra rating 1: St Lamvinus 2002 Merlot. Light red. Woody, vinous character, balanced acidity. Juicy, sparkling and very dry with pleasant grape stone bitterness (9/4/7/4/16).

Extra rating 2: St Lamvinus 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep clear red. Fruity vinousaroma. Citric with notes of barnyard and juicy aromatic grapes. Sweeter than the Merlot variety. Complex and intense. (9/4/8/5/16)

Bottle. Pours a lovely hazy reddish colour with a slightly pinkish head. Sweet malty and sour barnyard aroma. Fruity malty flavor with hints of barnyard and grapes. Sweet malty fruity finish.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2011
2011-09-23, draught at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas, 7-3-7-4-15=36
Cloudy burgundy red color, with too much carbonation initially, but no head after a short while. Aroma of country wine (rough), some vinegar, light cheese. Dry mouthfeel, very sour, with some red wine notes that are pleasant, and some late astringency. Interesting, although not very harmonious (maybe so is the kegged version).

2004-07-03, brewed 1995, bottled 1999, 9 years old, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Hazy copper color, poor head. Being 9 years old, the fruit character is almost gone, but the Lambic core is a real one, very aggressive, citrusy, tarty, woody; nevertheless it also shows a reasonably good malty line (more than usual); very long acid final.

madmitch76 (14285) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2010
7th March 2010. Draft at Moeder Lambic. Hazy pink beer, no head. Sourish and a little musty. Sourish fruit with a whisper of red wine in the finish. Crisp. Not bad.
