On tap @ Spuyten Duyvil for Zwanze Day 2012. Pours a pale purple with orange hues. Very little head to speak of, but clearly carbonated. The aroma is mostly dominated by a sweet grape juice note but it is balanced out by a good deal of lactic sourness and a tinge of barrel. On the palate, the lambic tartness starts out strong and on the end a more acidic, grape sweetness and tartness come in to balance it out. Very delicate. Possibly my favorite Cantillon.

Fresh red colour, foam is white which lasts quite long. Smell is fresh sour, kinda barnyard smell. Also a little sweetness to it. Mouthfeel is nice, tart. Medium body. Carbonation is little. Very nice fruit lambic. A good combination between the lambic and the grapes. Taste is sour as well as a little sweet. Aftertaste is like a red whine. This is a beer you should have had.

"from wish list. Sweet funky cheesy aroma of berry-ish fruit. Body is fizzy at first but turns a little flat. Flavor is nice. Very complex...less cheese, more lemony tart in the mouth. Nice sweet-tart finish. Not among their best, but quite enjoyable."

Bottle shared by Dan at the Pig. Small snifters. Pours an amazing dark red with an ample lasting head. Some small lacing. The aroma is funky yeasts, oak barrels, red wine, fermented grapes, and apricots. The taste was so good with the red grapes, tart funky yeasts, oak barrel, and tannins. Perky, sprite, and funky finish. Light body, crisp. Somewhat dry. Very good.

Sour and funk smell. Medium carbonation with light foam. Vinous sour that is half acetic and half lactic.

Bottle at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, july 24th 2014. Clear dark red body with a white pink tinted head. Nice. Aroma of red grapes, wood, barnyard, resembling red wine a bit. Taste is quite sour, cherries, grapes, again a bit wineish, long tart sour berry finish. Lovely!

Kosmokrator (484) - ITALY - AUG 19, 2014
Limpido color vinaccia con fragile velo di schiuma rosata. Aroma acetico ma non pungente con sentori di uva, lievito e cantina. Gusto acidulo, vinoso e rotondo con spiccate note di uva e un finale asciutto dove compaiono luppolo e legno da botte. Corpo medio-lieve, effervescenza vivace, struttura vellutata: ottimo lambic!

Taylors birthday tasting! Ruby ted pink pour not much head. Aroma of cheese funk and light raspberry red fruit. Tastes same with sour dry blue cheese and funk. Red fruit jam over cheese funk. Good stuff, a bit simplistic but very cohesive. A fine beer for sharing with friends.

750 mL bottle, 2011 vintage, shared by jackl at the WWGT2D2U? tasting, 5/29/14. Pours a murky berry color with a large creamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of intense funk, tart jammy fruits, pepper, horseblanket. The taste is intense tartness, jammy fruits, pepper, funk, wood, an almost musty note. Medium bodied, high carbonation, lingering tartness. Exceptional.

On tap at Mikkeller SF. Pours a nice purple-red with matching foam. The aroma is strong barn, grass, wine, and funk aromas. The flavor is tart wine and and fruit flavors up front leading to a nice sour finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
