4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2005 vintage, bottled 2007. Dark ruby red body with a short pink creamy head that slowly fades to a mist. The aroma is strongly tart and funky, some hay, dust, vinegar, and rhubarb. A mellow sweet raspberry aroma comes through middle to end. Heavily sour and acidic. Very vinegar like with only slight fruit noticeable in the middle. Finishes with a strong funky sour. I was hoping for a bit more fruit along with the tartness, but this is by far the sourest beer I’ve ever tasted and I love it.

Red bronze pour. Aroma tangy raspberries slight vinegar. Tastes balanced balsamic sour, raspberries. Even slightly seedy. Great balanced tartness. I think the fruit helps

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, sourced from the brewery. 2011 vintage so not drunk young by any stretch! Pink fading to brown colour. Restrained matured funk. Fruit has mellowed and blended with the winey acidic notes of the lambic. Sharp and yet not vinegary or mouldy. Serious stuff.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my favorite Cantillon beers. It pours a nice deep red color and has a nice head that settles quickly. Very nice mouthfeel and has a strong nose of raspberries and fruit. Sweet but not cloying and it has great balance.

Bottle shared by Linus - thanks! Ruddy pinkish brown pour, head flourishes and dies in a second. Aroma of funk and fruit. Dusty raspberry; exceptionally tart preceded by initial sweetness. Lovely, but definitely tart. I had it to my wife and she shakes her head "no. Too sour." More for me - both of these ounces are mine!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at a tasting. Dark ruby pour with a small pink head. Smells of raspberries and lambic funk, cherries and cherry cores. The taste is impossibly sour, but of a fruity type, not vinegar-y, with tons of raspberries and some cherries in the mix. Crazy!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky dark red color with pink head. Aroma is full of fresh raspberries and some farmhouse funk. Taste starts with intense sourness and raspberries in the background. Extremely dry, light body with a good amount of carbonation. Excellent fruit aroma but the intense sourness overwhelms the other flavors.
