thewolf (11555) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2008
Bottle, bought @ SuperBest, Christiansfeld.
Pours a little muddy, deeb red-brown with a small, creamy film head. Aroma is acidic, with grapes, light cherries, apples and oak. Low carbonation, rather creamy and gets quite sticky. Flavour begins quite harsh, then turns softer with lots of wood, sweet fruits on top of the well-balanced dry tartness. Some caramel in the aftertaste.

Pinball (11541) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2009
37.5cl bottle from ølbutikken, bottled 2005, tasted feb. 2009, 3-4 yrs old. clear red with a sall slightly offwhitepinkish head that lasts for a minute. aroma of blue cheese, barnyard, sour beer, red fruits, grapefruit juice, the barnyard and cheese way less agresive than the lambic vinesomething i sampled earlier today. very sour flavor, well balanced, i get sour, citrussy flavors, wild yeast. aftertaste is a bit less sour, ends dry. quite to the point and very sour i miss some other flavors than just sour. perhaps lambic is just not me at this stage in my beer upbringing. comparing to others i’ve had, this one lacks breadth in the flavor mix. it is very sour very balanced but not much else.

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
Rosé lambic with a light cherry and lactic acid aroma. Dry cherries in mouth with strong sour notes, very puckering and definitely classic. Rich and complex, with cheese-like qualities. Medium bodied. Sampled at Quintessence Cantillon 2005.

bierkoning (11222) - 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.

FatPhil (10992) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2008
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.
