bottle shared by tom10101, massive thanks bro! pours hazy bright red-pink with a small pinkish cap, slightly reviving. bright red grapes and cherries, kalamatas, dark leather, tannins, purple matter (!), pink pepper, light to medium acidity - seems mostly citric; raspberry vinegar notes, relatively complex flora. moderate carbonation, light body, dry, assertively tart citric-tannic-herbal finish. pinotaged. cherry-oriented. bit rough on the edges but still a very very good fruit lambic.

Aroma of red currants, raspberry, dried cranberry, red apples. Taste is very very mineraly, light barnyard with an autumny ripe apple flavour, earthy and a bit complex, but not that flavorful.

Btl @ cantillon July 15 Looks... Light burgundy, cherry red. Sml White, but slight pink tinged head. Smells... Earth and spice..white pepper, red vinous grapes and that friendly and familiar cantillon barn. Tastes..loads of the carignan grape, it’s earthy, fruity and definitely spicy in a white pepper direction, that pepper aspect is noticeable but not overpowering and it stays through a dry oak finish. Delicious.

Pineau d’aunis at the brewery. Deep red colour, very nice aroma of grapes, funk, wood. Taste is heavy sour with long finish. Aftertaste is a bit astringent and very red fruity. Very nice sour

(750ml bottle as Pineau d’Aunis @ Cantillon brewery, July 28 2015) Pours nearly clear deep pink with a whitish head. Aroma of red wine fruitiness, grape, plum and some berry blend. A real peppery, spicy herbal hop character, musty funk, some wood. Flavour has a nice acidic red grape tone, berry seeds, lots of peppery and spicy notes, dried herbs, some tannic barrel notes on the finish. Medium bodied with soft carb, this is complex and a gorgeous druiven lambic. My description doesn’t do it justice, but there’s a wonderful counterpoint between the fruit and the other components that elevates it above the other Cantillon wine grape versions I’ve had. Stunning.

Countbeer (6222) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2015
Bottled as Pineau D’Aunis: Taster: Aroma has more cellar and earthy tones with of course the typical Cantillon funk and some nice fruits with a light floral flower tone. Flavour is more vinousy, bitter, fruity, funk, dried fruits, cellar, light herbal/floral tones, some wild yeast and light herbal earthy tone. Aftertaste is bitter funky, some vinous wild yeast/vinous wort, dried fruity tones... Low carbo, creamy light sparkling light dry funky mouthfeel, more than just medium bodied.

TheCametron (2369) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle as Cantillon as Pineau D’Aunis. Pours Red with a pink head. Not dissimilar to the Caignan in its winey character. Delicious woodiness and a very enjoyable acidity. Grapes and fresh berries. Funky and tartly acidic. Very fresh and vital. Delicious.

Bottle at Cantillon. Almost clear deep ruby liquid with small to medium light pink head. Aroma of lemon, earthy funk, wood, mineral, apple skin and light grapes. Taste is dry and light to medium sour with notes of lemon, grapes and wood. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Really nice, a bit less sour and more funky and woody than Carignan.
