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.

Dfonorow (1721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle at Cantillon. Pour is murky red/purple with a small pink head. Aroma and flavor of grape vines, cherries, wood, slight barnyard, and acidic grapes. Finish has a bit of salt/vinegar in it but it is masked nicely by the sour red grapes. Good.

King_Alex_II (522) - 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.

zimbo (753) - SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Bottled November 21 2010. Clear chrystalline seemingly confected red glow in colour. Nose of sharp must, cherry and fermented grape wrapped in cheese cloth. Gentle acidic lip smacking tartness followed by more extreme elements of red currant,cherry, wood and wild yeast.Leaves a lingering puckering chewiness in the mouth. An experience.
