Bottled. Poured ruby red in colour with a small head. Berries, earth and some sour notes in taste. Lemon also with some woody notes in aftertaste. Dry finish. One of the best fruit lambics I’ve had so far.

Dark red-purple pour. Red grapes, syrupy body, medium-high acidity / medium sour. Good full body. Notes of grape, maybe plums, raisins. Great.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Aroma of berries and cellar winery. Taste Vinicius and funky with mild tartness. Fairly carbonated, more so than may I have had. I believed the carbonation helped out the grape must as the Merlot grapes fro fruit lambic so can be more subdued. I though overall it was a great balance.

electrotype (430) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2015
Un nez franchement irréprochable : d’une complexité que j’ai très rarement vue! Le raison rouge côtoit les arômes sauvages à merveille. Le fruité et le sauvage entrent en synergie. D’une orange foncé/rosé, le liquide est un peu moins foncé que ce que j’imaginais. La mousse, typique d’une belle gueuze de ce calibre, est petite mais soyeuse et étincellante. L’impession en bouche, bien que sûrette, n’est jamais exagérée. Le raisin est ici très présent et prend peut-être un peu trop de place pour quelqu’un qui, comme moi, préfère en général les gueuzes non fruitées. La complexité du nez ne se retrouve pas assez en bouche et ça me déçoit un tout petit peu. Quoique le dernier verre a été le meilleur : je me fait tout le temps avoir... À ne pas boire trop froide!!

Douberd (3712) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2015
(Cantillon Saint Lamvinus) Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas during Zwanze Day, 20 ml into a tumbler.deep ruby red colour on the body, slightl hazy, with a small pinkish head on top. Lots of red grapes and vinous notes on the aroma. Nicely sour taste, red grapes, wood, vinous notes. Medium thin body, a bit high carbonation. Good, expected a bit more to be honest.

Aroma of redcurrants, cherry, raspberry, plum, with a soft herbal complexity. Taste is not so tart, but with clear tannin, funk, leather, earthy with a berry layer on top, very nice, a bit salty, like calciumchloride,

Lukasmh (727) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours all hazy deep red with slight purple shine, very nice 1 finger light pink head, fizzy. Aroma is crazy delicious. Packed eyes grapes and merlot. Cherie candy, raspberries, oak, vanilla, red wine and tannins. Light wheat, some yam, fruity, yet dry brett, Cantillon funk, leather, subtle barnyard. Taste is super fresh, fruity and tart. Really sour, some lemon and lime, lactic acidity, funk, sour cherries, sweet grapes and raspberry yam. Candy at first. Packed with red grapes and oak, almost spicy oak. Fruity most grapes turns more towards red wine. Fizzy body and oaky tannins in finish. Wood and long tart finish, ever-lasting. Really dry oak and brett. Best Cantillon I’ve had so far...
