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. Dry woody flavour with a nice grape flavour and very wineous notes. Light acidic dry flavour following. Shivering citric dry finish. Lovely! Very nice fruity lambic, classic Cantillon with a refreshing grape flavour.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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)
