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.

TheCametron (2086) - 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.

VsXsV (2777) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2015
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.

TXBadger (1887) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle of Pineau D’Aunis at Cantillon. Pours a hazy reddish color with off-white head. Spicy Cabernet like grape aromas, with funk and tartness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a lot of spice, dry, and tart.

asheft (2700) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Very fruity and sweet aroma with strawberry and raspberry and loads of red grape juice. Slightly hazy dark red under a lasting white collar. Slightly sweet grape juice quickly drying out and sour, but not crazy sour. Excellent balance. Light body, medium carbonation, bright and not mouth puckering.

Maakun (1477) - 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.

Jorn69 (1664) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2015
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 (3676) - 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 (149) - 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.
