knickskicks (858) - - 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.

Dfonorow (1721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle at Cantillon. Pour is murky red/purple with a small pink head. Aroma and flavor of grape vines, cherries, wood, slight barnyard, and acidic grapes. Finish has a bit of salt/vinegar in it but it is masked nicely by the sour red grapes. Good.

King_Alex_II (468) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Red light muggy color with no foam. The smell is light sour and a tiny bit grapy. The taste is moderately sour for a cantillon and has a light blurry feeling on the tounge. Dry and sour aftertaste. Very pleasant.

zimbo (743) - SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2015
Bottled November 21 2010. Clear chrystalline seemingly confected red glow in colour. Nose of sharp must, cherry and fermented grape wrapped in cheese cloth. Gentle acidic lip smacking tartness followed by more extreme elements of red currant,cherry, wood and wild yeast.Leaves a lingering puckering chewiness in the mouth. An experience.

Garrold (2362) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle. Friends of Ham, Leeds. Dark pink, with a light haze. Fine halo of pale pink head. Softly sour, black grape. Cherry stone woodiness. Not massively complex, but very juicy, and inviting. Taste is lightly acetic. Not far off bone dry, apart from a hint of sweetness on the lips. Very refreshing, easy drinking, and clean. Lovely balance of flavours. The barrel ageing comes through right at the end. Could drink this all day.

Bottle to glass at Chez Moeder. Pours a beautiful ruby red color with a slight pinkish head. Aroma and flavor are a wonderful mix of sour and sweet, excellent grape character. Very nice beer.
