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.

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

JorgeLee (1637) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
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.

GrumpyOldTroll (59) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2016
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) slightly opalescent ruby colour with a frothy pink head. aroma of heavy raspberries, herbal hops and gooseberries, quite leafy, with a light touch of vanilla, some light barnacles, flan base and lemon juice. flavour is mostly raspberries and lemon juice, with some notes of salted popcorn, vanilla and black olives in the medium-dry tart finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

Prufrockstar (1813) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2016
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!

mariuspoenari (1095) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
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!

ciocanelu (891) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 23, 2016
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.
