Joakgust (913) - Stockholm, - OCT 14, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Bottle, 75cl brewed 2007 - Red semi hazy beer with a small be consistent head. Aroma is fruity sour with notes of red wine, oak, red berries, leather, barnyard and cassis. Flavor is sour fruity with heavy notes of oak and leather as well as hints of red wine, tannins and earth. Highly enjoyable, not the best lambic I’ve had but definitely in the top.

neongolden (449) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
(2013 bottle @ barVolo for Zwanze Day, Sept 20 2014) Lightly hazed dark rosé colour with a lacy pink-white head. Aroma of red wine, grape, bitter herbs, barnyard funk. On the palate, acidic red fruit wine character, woody, slightly spicy herbs, drying and barrel/tannic red wine quality in the finish, There is fruit sweetness at the core. Feels like some hop bittering and something like light grain in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with high active carb. Very harmonious combination of fruit and barrel with the underlying lambic, this is a fantastic sipper that sits somewhere between a fruit lambic and a stronger-flavoured rose wine and is probably better than most examples of either.

eduardovl (864) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
750ml bottle served in a Hoegaarden thumbler glass. A: First of all, beautiful bottle art. Beautiful label and corked and capped bottle. Pours a dark red to purple color. Slightly hazy. Forms a big bubbled and fizzy pink head when poured. Low retention and practically no lacings left in the glass S: Very fruity in the nose. Very fruity with strong notes of grapes. Very tart with some notes of malts. Lambic yeasts in the end T: Very fruity, tart and dry taste. Strong notes of grapes. Quite vinegar. Lambic yeasts M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Tart and fruity aftertaste O: Very drinkable beer. Delicious Cantillon is pleonasm ;) [ BA Review @ 1/30/2010 ]

Alengrin (2060) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2014
Cantillon’s red grape lambic, referring to a 19th-century tradition from Hoeilaart where grapes were and are still grown, but where lambic has ceased to exist since then. This product is made in very limited quantities and not easy to find on the Belgian market. It is a ravishing purple red beauty with lilac foam and ’champenoise’ sparkles, very complex, extremely fruity, lovely funkiness, and one of the most elegant lambics I ever tasted, though I do prefer the white grape version called Vigneronne over this (but only very slightly so).

jookos (2313) - FINLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Tap@akkurat. Dark red. Dark red fruity nose, barnyard, funk, the cantillon flavour. Very nice nose. Quite pronounced fruits, not as much as a kriek, but stull notecable berryness. Dry tart body, wonderful dark grape finish. Really nice. Probably the best fruited cantillon I’ve had. It’s more dark harmoneous fruity than krieks or otherd.

Incredible opaque plum color and yeasty vinegar aroma. Has a well developed sour flavor with sweet notes and a slight fizz long finish.

rbrazell (1686) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle from Edmunds Oast. Amber red pour with some pinkish highlights and a bubbly white head. Big aroma of layered deep yeast funk, sourdough, pizza shop, hay, lemons zest, plums, dark fruits, oak and wine. Complex flavor of oak wood, dark fruits, yeast funk, pizza shop, sourdough, lemon zest and citrus. Medium bodied and wonderful carbonation. So fucking delicious.

Shared pint in Homosibaris bar. Dark red color beer with a strong aroma of wine and fruits. This was my first Lambic beer and was an amazing experience. For sure I will drink it again combined with some cheese or ham.

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."
