3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (Cantillon, Brussels)
Rich red, small pink head. Musty aroma, and a crotchy acrid sourness. Sticky bitter sour mouthtaste initially, but that transitions to a lighter elderflower and fruity body. Long dry bitter finish. A tad winey, and also bitter for me, and didn’t have the level of mellowness I expected from the oak barrel aging.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

(brewtopia04, bottle) Opaque fuschia without head. Aroma is vinous, old sweaty socks, barnyard. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium acidity, i.e., not as much as most Cantillon, medium body.

Keg at La Capsule, Lille, France. Clouded red to brown with white head. There is a fruity sweetness which is cut through by a tannin tartness. Woody notes, sharp and tangy, rich on the palate. Very pleasant.

(Bottle) Pours a pinkish-red punch-like color with a white head. The aroma dances up your nasal passages with a beutiful bouquet of grapes. Has a tart flavor and hints of come woodiness. I would like to try a bottle that has been aged a little bit longer (3-5 years)

Bottle at Craft Beer Co tasting, thanks to Matt. It pours deep red-purple, with a thin white head. The nose is farmyard, juicy red grape, blackcurrant cordial, jam, lemon and chamomile. The taste is red grape, lemon, Granny Smith apple, citrus pith, lime, floral, eggy sourness and sour cherry, with a mouth-numbing sour finish. Medium body and fine fizzy carbonation. Massive drinkability, great balance, juicy fruit and sharp sourness. Great.
