2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I think perhaps Iím being unfair and giving this beer too low of a rating because this just isnít my style. I can see the quality put into it, and it is fairly complex, but seems much to harsh and yet insipid for my taste. Itís a bit vinegary both in aroma and in taste. It seems very dry, and astringent even.

750mL. 2009 bottling.
A: Plum tinted red. Thin whisp of head.
N: Sour grapefruit , wine grape, oak, peppercorn, lemon, hints of cherry and leather. Earth.
T: Home run hitter. Plenty sour, some malt and fruit to balance.
M: Light, carbed, drinkable. Wonderful as the Cantillon wont.
O: Another excellent beer, albeit not as fruit forward anymore. Delicious.

Bottle. Pours slight haze bold ruby, dark red with thin reddish white head. Smell is merlot grapes, citrus, light brett funk. Taste is sour grape, fresh red berries, cherry, strawberries juice, merlot tannins, a little acidic, slight dry wood towards the end. Would love to try again with more age. Delicious.

Notes from backlog. Was my second Cantillon, and I guess I had hyped it a bit too much. Very tart, but the grapes did not affect it to the degree I had expected.

Red. Aroma is subtle funk and grape. Taste is oak, grape, tartness, mild sweetness; lots going on. Overall, one of the best fruit lambics Iíve yet had.

Bottle share thanks to droofus. Slightly tart nose with tons of fruitiness.. Not very tannin like. This is awesome. Almost like a very tart grape soda. Perfect balance of grape and sourness.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep ruby color. Big barnyardy, horse blanket, funky sour aroma. Big funky flavor as well, barnyard gueuze character. Fruity flavor, grape and sour cherry like in the finish. Big sourness throughout but balances well with fruity character.

2006 bottle pours muddled brown purple. Big funk nose. Big tart and acidic start. Grape sweetness appears. Solid body.

Again an extremely nice one from Cantillon. Unbelievably sour, took the most of the glass for my tongue to get used to it and get into the more refined tastes. Fruity flowery feel and a lot of red grapes. Beautiful!
