xpimptastikx (103) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Enjoyed at Cantillon. Ruby orange with off white head, fades to thin ring, light lacing. Nose is dominated by the peppery grapes, light wood and horse blanket finish it out. Taste is light grape juice with the pepper coming through yet again, some cheesy bretty flavors, and very lightly sour. Creamy carbonation with a light clean finish, not very dry at all. Not my favorite fruit Cantillon by a long shot, nice to try, but this grape doesn’t do anything for me.

Maakun (1259) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle at Cantillon as Pinaut d’Aunis. Clear light red with small pink head that leaves a nice ring of cute tiny bubbles. Red grapes, old strawberries, raspberry juice. Lots of wood, straw, funk, pee, chicory, bitter grape skins. Taste is medium sour with medium bitter finish. Light to medium bodied with soft sparkly carbonation. Nice stuff, pretty outspoken and not super fruity but it’s well balanced with the lambic. Great.

Bottle (750 ml) @ Cantillon 150515. [ As Pinot D’Aunis ]. Fruity, bretty and vinous with red grapes and cherries, sour, medium body with a watery to oily texture. The finish is dry.

JStax (3535) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle pour at the source. Pours a dark red with a pink head of foam. The head dissipates quickly. The beer smells like berry and funk. Fruity and wine like taste with a moderate to heavy tartness. The beer is awesome! I would love to have gotten one of these to bring back home.

Hoprider (144) - DENMARK - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle at the source: short notes, too busy enjoying but here goes: Pours a clear purpleish / dark pink colour with a small head. The nose is farmy and mineral at the same time with deep berry aromas and even a little bubblegum. I felt the nose was spectacular here. Initially fresh tasting with a big acidic kick and like the Carignan some pinot noir tendencies. Love that! Gentle but present carbonation and a long and super pleassant aftertaste. Could drink this all day but Cantillon closes at 5pm...

Bottled at the brewery. Clear ruby, medium pink head. Intense red wine aroma, notes of dark berries, white pepper and leather. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry, medium acidity, some tannins.

Dr_Fellini (770) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle to glass at the brewery, under the name Pinot d’Aunis. Pours a very pretty ruby red color with a light pinkish head. Nice sour grape character. A little sweetness. Solid beer, but not as good as some of the other Cantillon offerings.

CraftBeerNick (1169) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
Bottle at Cantillon 14th April 2015. Pours clear and a beautiful reddish pink, the aroma is vinous, hay, fruit, hops, complex. Taste is full, vinous fruit, some farmyard undertones, balanced not too astringent, yeast, long lingering bitter sour finish. Excellent beer

markextrae (1847) - NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2015
shared bottle at the cantillon brewery as Cantillon Pinot D’Aunis. poured a cleared dark red colour leaving a nice non to long lasting pink head. first hint in the nose is a slight pepper smell of the grape, it’s not a real fruity grape, more earthy, red grape, yeast, funk, tart, hay, spicy vineous notes, more sweet fruity subtle flavors as it starts to warms a little bit. lime, horseblanket, oak, really smooth, very complex brew, great to see what big of a differecne it can be between two grapes. lovely!

AdamJackson (3430) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Enjoyed as the Pinot d’Aunis 75CL at Cantillon in March of 2015. Split 2 ways in tasters.

A - Purple pour, dark pink in the glass with a 2 finger pink head.

S - Nose is great. Very vinous with grape skin, merlot, some cherry and lemon tart.

T - Taste is nice. More wine forward than any other Cantillon I’ve had. Like sniffing a red wine that’s been diluted with lemonade.

M - Thin, not a lot of mouthfeel, very one-dimensional. Tastes single barrel and not a blend

O - Despite the lack of body, the taste of this was really wonderful!
