2006 Bottling. Hazy violet-rose with a thin, fine pale pink head. Potent, clean sour aroma with touches of dark fruit grape notes in the background. Hugely sour with a dry, softly fruity flavor profile with a touch of grape skins. Body is very light with great dimension.

Gorgeous purple colour, aroma is fruity and quite sour. Flavour, as expected, is very sour. I can’t say that this beer would appeal to most but I find it quite interesting. For the faint of heart...try adding some sugar to the glass.

75cl bottle, shared with friends, red/purper coloured without any head. Sour smell, taste: some sour and sweet balanced beer with some vine components, blueberry, grapas. Great and refreshing one! I love it!

Échantillon bouteille 750ml au Bières et Saveurs de Chambly. Couleur rouge vin opaque, peu de mousse laissant un léger anneau autour du verre. Arôme vineux, boisé, avec une note rappelant la ferme. Goût vineux, boisé avec une grande acidité. Faible carbonation. Toute une expérience, elle est excellente.

Cantillon Friday Night Tasting Session, Providence RI
Pours a red plum colour and light pink coloured head. Nose of grapes, red wine, wood, and acidity. Initial taste of red wine, vinous fruits and a fizzy mouthfeel. Wood is apparent when moving into the finish. Sourness lingers for an excellent duration. Finishing dry which didnt draw away from the duration. Very drinkable.

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.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Burgundy. No head. Aroma of lemon, cider, brett, socks, cheese, wood, lightly vinous. Slightly less sourly acidic (only slightly!) than most Cantillons, and with an extra layer of woody complexity. Superb dry finish. Gorgeous.

Lovely pale red look, no head worth mentioning. Harmonois bit a bit weak typical Cantillon aroma. Mouthfeel is slick, clean and sharp, so is the flavour, with very light funk. Wet cellar notes and a balanced fruity sweetness that lingers alongside the acidity in the finish. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2007 bottle. Pours a clear strawberry with a spotty head. Big brett is the first impression, more so than in most lambic. Kind of an earthy one, and there’s red berries of all kinds. Sounds very spritzy. Very sour, very tart. The brett doesn’t really shine in the flavor, though it’s integrated enough. Significant sour grape presence. Very thin, per the industry standard apparently. I wish there was more yeast complexity and body, but nice, quite nice.
