Bottle. Poured hazy purple color with minimal fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good tart grape & yeasty aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy sour fruity flavor with a solid tart fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout lambic.

Bottled: Reddish coloured. Hazy. Light reddish head. Wood, sourness, light barnyard and loads of berries in the nose. Flavour is quite sour with a light sweet touch to balance. Quite acidic and dry. Raspberries notable. Ends on a very dry fruity sournote. Quite drinkable and interesting.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 2002 bottled. Reddish pink color, firm head. Typical Cantillon aroma. Oak, lemon and sone honey. A hint of grapes, but certainly not very apparent. The grapes are really there in the flavor. Rubber, oak, and grapefruit. Honey, some yoghurt. A gentle sourness in a fine lambic with a vinous character. Not the best Cantillon there is, but still a great beer. nov 2012 bottle, tasted July 2014. Red color. Grapes, grape peels, citrus and oak on the aroma. Well rounded sour flavor with grapes, remaining tannines, oak, grapefruit. The complexity is there, the fruit is there. Great beer.

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
