knickskicks (947) - - SEP 19, 2012
75 cl bottled Oct. 12, 2011. Bright pink/red with a pink-white head. Nose is berries (mostly strawberry), leather furniture, some vinegar, vinous. Tart fruits, oak, wine, star fruit, bitter grapefruit. Tickling tartness. Not incredibly tart but left my mouth pretty numb 2/3 through. Soft spritzy body. Probably the driest finish of any beer I’ve ever had. Leaves the pleasant chalky dryness you get in your mouth after eating a banana or two. Just an incredible palate.

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.

Lukasmh (714) - 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...
