4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 On tap at Capone’s in Norristown. Considering I wrote the descriptions for the tap list last week, I should hope that people won’t mind my notes looking similar to the brief descriptions seen in the restaurant. In any case...
Appears a ruby reddish toned pink with a small, bubbly head that quickly fades into nothing. No lacing is left and the spider legs are very faint when tilting the glass and brought back to center.
Smell is of tart, sweet raspberries, barnyard funk, rubber, wildness, light horseblanket, and oak.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with vinuous notes and oaky vanilla pushing through the raspberries and wild funk.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, vinuous, sweet & tart, dry, slightly acidic but mellow.

La birra più simile al vino che abbia mai bevuto, ma con un’acidità tutta sua propria delle fermentazioni spontanee marchiate Cantillon. Già all’aroma si percepiscono le note intense di vino rosso, mosto e frutta rossa. Tutto confermato e anzi ampliato nel gusto, dove frutta rossa, note vinose e di legno maturo si intrecciano in un’incantesimo che ammalia i sensi. Saint Lamvinus è l’unico santo che potrei mai pensare di adorare.

Aromas of funky dark berries. Flavors raspberry and currant with a slight tartness. Overall a very good lambic.

On draft at Teresa’s Next Door. Poured slightly hazy ruby red that appeared undercarbonated. Nose was fruity and vinous. Agree with others that it had the appearance of a wine. Sweet, complex fruity flavor initially with a sour, acidic finish.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
75 cl bottled Oct. 12, 2011. Bright pink/red with a pink-white head. Nose is berries (mostly strawberry), leather furniture, some vinegar, vinous. Tart fruits, oak, wine, star fruit, bitter grapefruit. Tickling tartness. Not incredibly tart but left my mouth pretty numb 2/3 through. Soft spritzy body. Probably the driest finish of any beer I’ve ever had. Leaves the pleasant chalky dryness you get in your mouth after eating a banana or two. Just an incredible palate.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark rose-red color with a medium sized pink head. Aroma is funk, cherries, vineous, oak. Flavor is dark tart cherries, oak, grapes, barnyard, lemon. Palate is medium light, medium to high carbonaton, tart, dry finish. This is a really fantastic brew. Tons of tartness and refreshing acidic fruit flavors make this an excellent summer brew. That being said, it’s way too pricey for me, glad I got to try it, but won’t be doing it again any time soon. I think their whole line up is fantastic, so you can’t go wrong at any price point.

Tasted various times over the years, including at the Stone Sour fest. Semi cloudy cherry red color. This is like a big tart-sour fruit soup with truly fascinating and fun tart cherry and raspberry profile. A little barnyard, wood, mixed other tart berries but very refreshing and tasty from first sip thru the finish. One of my favorites of this Stone sour fest and from Cantillon.
