boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JAN 1, 2007
UPDATED: APR 7, 2008 Oh Yes. Pours Cabernet grapeskin red with deep pink accents. Typical small but long-lived Cantillon head(for an aged bottle), pink and purple with white ringlets of bubbles. Mostly translucent, slightly oily in appearance. Cantillon house aroma that seems more full bodied than usual. Strong musty grape aroma with a tannic flash and a bit of cedar. Reminds me of the Italian variety of goat cheese somewhat. The sourness penetrates my senses, and I have yet to taste this. Upon first sip my mouth comes instantly alive, like drinking lambic for the first time, all over again. Taste is much sweeter than any Cantillon I’ve tried, excluding Rose de Gambrinus, but I believe it’s even a touch sweeter than even that beer. Flavor is magnificent, so well rounded and so delectable. The tartness melds perfectly with the sweetness. Cherries explode! Raspberries pummel! Grape skins entwine my taste buds and oaky tannins tie it all together. The tannic-style acidity lingers, sinking into my cheeks, the sides of my tongue go numb. Fire slowly cascades down the back of my throat. At first the finish seems very full bodied, then suddenly it becomes light and quenching. Simply marvelous.

$70 bottle at dirty Truth Northampton, Ma. Wild berries, but not overwhelming and vinegar. Merlot like flavor with a superb tartness

bottle. I shared this at the January RB tasting. Pours a beautiful reddish color. Nose is super sour, musty, stinky feet and oak. Taste is of sour grapes with some oak. Perfectly sour fruit. Yum! Mouthfeel is sour and dry. Perfect sour.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Expensive. you dont get what you pay for.... That should be my rating but I do believe that this beer is going somewhere, just not where I like. Purple and red in colour with no head. lots of raspberry skins and seeds. Same goes for the taset. Sharp stomach acid. I do believe that I have identified the brewing agent. It is H. pylorus.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 4, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 A great drink. Color is eye-catching like guava juice. The aroma and flavor are wonderful and varied - anything from orange/tangerine to zinfandel pops up in the course of finishing a bottle, and they are all correct. The burgundy barrel really helps this mellow out.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Draft at Capone’s. Cloudy red color. Good lacing. Aroma is vinous, musty with some barnyard. Flavor is very vinous. Medium body. Funky good.

King_Alex_II (1063) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Red light muggy color with no foam. The smell is light sour and a tiny bit grapy. The taste is moderately sour for a cantillon and has a light blurry feeling on the tounge. Dry and sour aftertaste. Very pleasant.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 2, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2007 750 ml bottle. A hazy deep red beer with a pink head that disappears very quickly. The aroma is sour with fruity notes (berries, grapes). The flavour is tart and refreshing with a woody notes and a sour finish. perhaps more drinkable than other Cantillons. Medium body, complex.

bfeldmann (1049) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 6, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2006 Not the best from this brewery. Poured a ruby color almost no head no lacing. Aroma was of funk stright up barnyard and sourness. Flavor was much the same. refreshing beer but not as good as i wanted it to be.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Bottle courtesy of tpd975. Pours a still clear deep redish copper. Aroma is vinous with red wine vinegar, rotting citrus, spicy brett, and oak. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and moderate to strong amount of acidity. Very good.
