yngwie (14170) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. Clear, red beer with a pink head. Yeast, mould, sourness and berries in the aroma. Yeasty flavor with barnyard-notes. Astringent, thin body and a stinging finish. A nice, teeth-cleansing beer, but as usual with lambics I have troubles describing it, but really love it. Rating: 8-4-7-4-15-3.8. 061028

Bottle, 375ml. A slightly hazy reddish beer with a creamy off-white head of moderate size. The aroma is unmistakable lambic but with a vinous touch without the alcohol. Lemon, funk and fruits in a lovely blend. Medium body, dry and puckering and lovely carbonated. Flavorwise it’s wonderful, sour and lemony, with unripe grapes, funky notes and cellary, barnyardish touch. More straightforward fruity than a pure lambic, yet not as fruity as a kriek or frambozen, still it’s lovely balanced. Damn, this is good, maybe it deserves a higher rating as well, but that would be unfair to some other lambics. Gimme more. 110122

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2010 Bottle at Ealing Beer Festival 2008. Thanks to Maria/Renffisch for this one. Hazy raspberry colour with thin pink head. Lambic farmyard aroma, some red wine grape. I mean I try to like Cantillon beers, but they are just too acidic, very good lemon and some red wine cherry fruit flavuor, but too acidic. Does have nice cherry aftertaste though and extraordinary farmyard/acidity. 3.3/5.0 Re-rate at the new Moeder Lambic. Hazy deep red. Very red wine grape on aroma. Lovely fruit in mouth. Lovely linger on finish, really good red wine finish. Lovely.

Dedollewaitor (14113) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 17, 2007
Blackurrant red with off white head. Sour typical cantillon aroma. Fruity fresh (cranberry/cherry) vinegar. Very nice & almost easy drinkable (Never thought I should ever write that) Nice!

Bottle ølbaren, i got the last glas, Mette strated the bottle without me. Deep red color. Juice of red berries, sweet, sour, grapes, a dry sour finish.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2010
UPDATED: APR 15, 2011 Bottle at KØ10. Good citric fruit aroma, nice earth notes as well. Cloudy deep red colour. Very small pink head. Good citric flavour, vinegary. Good fruitiness. A bit sweet for the style, making it more balanced than most Cantillon beers.

Travlr (13497) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 28, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2010 Pink color with scant pink head. Aroma of strawberries, lemons and cherries. Full mouth. Sour and dry. Good balance and complexity. Second rating: tap at Churchkey. Slightly less sourness, less dry, more vinous character. Still nicely complex. 4.3

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2006
<!-- i -->Bottled 0,375 ltr<!-- /i --><!-- br --> Cherry red, decent creamy mostly vanishing reddish head. Earthy farmhouse aroma with some strawberries, grape there too. Sour (of course), quite red wine -like grape flavors burst from the background. Not really so much different than their Kriek, but this one lends towards more winous flavor palette.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2011 Cloudy, rhubarb-red with no head. You can see the effervescent through the fog. Heroically cheesy aroma with vinous accents, must and leather. Sweet and vinous up front, quickly turning sour, barrelly, musty, leathery. The burgundy keeps up throughout the palate, lending it a lot of refreshing quality and style as that character really blends well with the acidity of the base lambic. That vinous sweetness and lush fruitiness might make this the most quaffable Cantillon out there. Very good lambic.
