Kronebryg (1124) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2012
nice light pink head, lasting, cloudy amber/rose colour. Heavy nose with wine, dry sulphur, kirsch and balsamico. Powerfull and fruity yet very elegant. Medium body and good length. Taste is dry with some fruityness, kirsch, raspberries, red vinegar. Very fine. I really like this type of beer.

Franckg (1120) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Vintage 2013, vieillit un an. Très fruitée. J’ai détecté un goût d’olives vertes lors des 2-3 premières gorgées mais cela s’est estompé par la suite. Le goût du raisin est très présent. L’équilibre avec le côté acidulé des lambics est parfait. Une des meilleures de Cantillon.

Steasy66 (1116) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2013 Bottle from bitter virtue. Red with lacy head. Tart red fruit aromas. Taste is sour but very clean, full of red grape and tannic red wine notes. Good carbonation and thickness. Very nice beer, probably my favorite fruit lambic besides Lou Pepe Framboise.

This is my favorite cantillon brew. Pours a dark amber/purple hue with a nice light head. Aromas of sour funk, cabernet grapes, a hint of butter and slightly herbal. Flavors of burgandy meets geueze.... You get the dry flavors from the wine and the sourness from the beer.

750 courtesy of Josh from Vintage Estates. Pours purple/red with no head. Nose is sour grape with a citrusy hint, slight oak. Taste is an abundance of sour grapes, citrus, and lots more grape. Dry and sour. Did I mention that it’s slightly tart? Also some slight, bright cherry notes, also some slight bready yeast and sourdough undertones as it warms. Very nice beer. Tasty. Glad to have tried it. Thanks, Josh.
