Cantillon Iris Grand Cru
Draught. Light hazy deep amber liquid with small white head. Aroma of lemon, apple skin, raw sugar, floral hops and wood. Taste is very light sweet and light to medium sour with notes of lemon, apple skin, mineral and light grain. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Great stuff. Quite a lot like an Oude Lambiek. Not a lot of dry hop left. Still, nice.

Cantillon Mamouche
Bottle at a share. This has all of Cantillon’s trademarks -- puckering tartness tempered by a light body, high carbonation, and a good amount of funky barnyard Brett -- but the elderflower adds a very subtle fruitiness that softens everything out. Quite a nice treat.

Cantillon Kriek
Cantillon’s Kriek Lambic is genuine down to its funky soul. Deep red pour and pink suds. This Kriek smells like cherry and earth. Its flavors are fruity and funky. Just a hint of juicy citrus, too. Moderately lively and sour feel. This is an extremely tasty cherry-infused Belgian beer. It’s a Fruit Lambic everyone needs to try.

Cantillon Fou’ Foune
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Sweet and sour stone fruit, pickle juice, watermelon, and faint, sweet banana aroma. Cloudy but effervescent gold under a lasting, white blanket. Sour orange and apricot and dry, with no bitterness, but crisp and very thirst quenching. Light body, medium high carbonation, mouth puckering.

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Thanks to ?. One of those ’how the hell have I not rated this?’ beers! Hazy cherry red beer, good pink head. Palate is light and dry, decent fine carbonation. Tart lemony sourness. A little cherry - raspberry tartness that develops a kind of cherry acid. Acid lemony finish. Too sharp for me.

Bottle shared. Thanks Raul! Big funky farmhouse nose with musty notes, leather, wet hay, gooseberry and oak. Taste is more of the same. Complex and changing as it warms. Good carbonation with a nice hint of oaky creaminess on the palate. Finish is dry and quite funky. Amazing.

Cantillon Rosé De Gambrinus
2014 750ml bottle. Sour, tart raspberry funk. Still juicy and balanced. The extra year if anything has made this even better. Still well-balanced. Cantillon just does it better than most everyyone else. Could drink this every day. Super underrated.

Bottle. A- Cherries. A- Red color, dark liquid, dark pink head. T- Cherries, slightly tart, subtle almonds, slightly sweet. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- How a kriek should be done. Very textbook, not all that sour or tart. Cherries are there but not a cloying fake fruit taste, and really not a lot of in your face flavors. Very balanced and tasty.

Tap at Logan’s. Golden with one finger head. Can’t say I’ve had anything quite like this. Lemony vinegar funk. Light white grape. Very good, but I had crazy expectations for this.

From 75 cl bottle, 2011 and 2012. 2012: Aroma of a lot of raspberry. Dark red colour with off-white head, not lasting. Heavy sour from berries. Light body, dry feel, sour raspberry finish. 8/10 - 4/5 - 7/10 - 4/5 - 16/20. 2011: Aroma is more yeasty, less and older raspberry than 2012. Colour has turned more orangey. Taste is only moderate sour and light bitter - some of the berry sourness has disappeared. Light+ body, dry feel, old sour berry finish. 7/10 - 4/5 - 7/10 - 5/5 - 15/20. 2012 added.

Cantillon Super Blend
A complex, still treat packed with subtlety. Has little to no carbonation but did pour with a slight large-bubbled pseudo froth, rich golden color. Very nice body, smooth and light on the palate. I enjoyed how the Iris GC juxtaposed with the stillness of the GCB seemed to give off a slight ACV note. Would be a treat to see how this one ages, but I’m afraid it likely wont be around for much longer. Here’s to another 20 years!

Tasta has a little sweetness too compared to 2014. Same palate, except finish is better. 7/10 - 4/5 - 7/10 - 5/5 - 15/20 203 rating is added.

Style et résumé: Lambic vieillie en fût de cognac.
Comment: Dégustation Manseau 2016. 02/2012.
Portrait: Une robe jaune sans mousse. Un nez classique de lambic et de gueuze, de bois, un peu simple. Une bouche acide de lambic, ni plus ni moins. Je ne l’ai pas trouvé renversante.
Note: 7+/10

Cantillon Rosé De Gambrinus
Bottle bought direct from the brewery in JAN/2016, it was dated within 6 months of drinking. I’ve tried this beer many times and it is best when fresh, it will lose the taste of raspberry rapidly after a year of ageing although it tends to keep its aroma. APPEARANCE: Large pink head, lively carbonation much like a Gueuze, deep raspberry colour. TASTE: If had fresh it tastes of very fresh raspberry Lambic. Very upfront, no messing about. Slight oak notes. PALATE: It is sour, slightly bitter, puckering, highly refreshing, moreish, elegant and highly sophisticated. OVERALL: If has fresh this is in the top 5 wild beers out there for me. A real world class incredible beer which wows anyone with a decent palate.

Cantillon Gueuze (Classic/Organic/Bio)
Remembered as more impressive. This time it was raw but subdued. Little carbonification, (un)noticeable from pulling out the cork. Taste like faded citrus fruit and peel, a little funk that lingers in the after taste with a bitter sensation. Bottled 23.11.15. Lot: DN Temp 5C. Bought at brewery.

Cantillon Cuvée Saint-Gilloise
Had a Gueuze and a Pale Ale before this, so it might influence the taste. Better than the Gueuze before, with a developed sour taste with hints of citrus and light bitter funk. Sour after taste. Good carbonification making for a pop when opening the cork which had lateral permiating bubles. Makes wonder what it tastes like aged some more. Bottled: 4.1.16. Lot: MAMF Temp: 5C. 750ml. Bought at brewery.
