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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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)

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.
