wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2009
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.

Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. 2011 stickered 750 mL bottle. Oh man, been waiting for this one! The pour is a slightly haxy ruby color with a big light pink head that leaves some excellent lace and falls down to a small pile of foam in the middle of the beer. The aroma is beautifully raspberry with a nice great funk to it. Lots of hay and a great dankness to it. The flavor is great. Lots of bright raspberry and an excellent funk to go with the sharp crispness of the sour. The mouth feel is amazing. Light, but carbonated fully, lingering aftertaste, hugely bitter and then sweet on the back end. I love this beer!

2011 750ml Bottle at Nuetnigenough, Brussels, 12th May 15. Pours an impressive ruby red, pretty clear. Aroma is raspberries, fresh and captured at their prime. Taste is intense raspberries, well balanced not too sour, but traslt refreshing, slight funk, but the raspberries dominate. Great lambic

Bottle at Nuetnigenough in Brussels. Pours a beautiful clear ruby rose color with a whitish-pinkish head. Aroma is deliciously tart, sweet, raspberries, light funk. Similar flavor, good balance of sweet and tart. Definitely one of my favorite offerings from Cantillon.

Maakun (1285) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2015
Bottle at home for my birthday, 2011 label/2013 cork. Slight hazy pink/orange with big off white to pink head that leaves some nice island of bubbles. Lots of visible carbonation too. Musty raspberry, red berries, hay, straw. This has the most barnyard smell I have ever gotten in a beer, pure straw, earth, wood and some diesel fumes. Taste is medium strong sour, not really vinegary but fruity or red wine that is on it’s way too become vinegar. Medium bodied with very crisp feel and full prickly carbonation. Very good.

Poured red, smells like the wonderful winery characteristics . Dark fruit aromas and flavor, with breads yeast popping up. Great wet oak in background. Some barnyard but mostly great crisp tartness.

SlackerMads (2013) - DENMARK - JAN 27, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2015 2011 bottle. Lively hazy/unclear red with a quickly diminishing pink head. Raspberries can be smelled at a distance. Flavour has lots of raspberries too, but also a whole gosh darn lot of other things going on. Sour cherries, light almonds, barnyard, light leather, oak. Medium body, medium sweet and sour, light dry. Long sour finish with raspberries. Lord have mercy!
