Buongiorgio00 (933) - - JAN 12, 2014
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.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2007
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.

Vestergaard (912) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2012
Pours hazy red with a hint of brown. Light red head. Smell is sour and wild with a little hint of vinegar and grapes. Agressive fresh sour with a lot of the red wine’s bitterness and fruits. Perfectly fizzy. Really fresh and nice beer!

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.

agl108 (908) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2008
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.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Hazy pink pour with nice lacing. Wheaty barnyard funk aroma with some nice vinous fruit. The flavor is tart red wine and dry grain with a nicely balanced Cantillon sour finish. Dry medium body with moderate carbonation.
