thejackpacker (2414) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2022
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2022 Sample from bottle at the brewery (2015 vintage), Brussels. Aroma is all about that barrel flavour. Taste is rather mellow and ending is very dry like a bordeaux red. Again, like other wine cantillons, this is an incredibly clever beer but wouldn't say it approaches their white grape beers. The ending is a little quiz in a burst of fizz. Lovely ofc but there are better.

SimonBlok (1732) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2021
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2021 Generous pour at Wild Festival. Appearance: raspberry red with a small pinkish head. Aroma: fresh red grapes upfront with some red wine, funky notes, slightly citrussy and brett like, old wood and dusty attic. Taste: mild sweet- and bitterness, and quite heavy tartness. Notes of red grapes and grape skins, lemony brett, autumn leaves and dust. Palate: medium bodied, slick texture and lively carbonation. Overall: not my absolute favorite grape lambic, but it is still very good. The taste fitted my expectations more that Racine for example.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2020 Only one bottle! It was so SAINT day reaching it. So rare! But disappointed. Of course lindemans framboise is much more class in it. Perfect aroma and sweetness, natural taste and sour balanced taste. Here only sour taste + wine. Aroma was not heavy enough for this price...

4.5
borowik (1131) - Bytom, POLAND - SEP 28, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2020 Kolor purpurowy. Aromat bucha drewnem, winogronami i nutami funky. W smaku bardzo wyraźna nuta czerwonych winogron. Cierpkie z fantastycznym owocowym finiszem.

4.4
MatiF96 (1361) - POLAND - SEP 28, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2020 Krwisty kolor. Potężny aromat, mnóstwo skóry, tanin i czerwonych winogron. W smaku sok z winogron, akcenty wina. Również sporo skóry, tanin i typowych nut lambika. Całkiem wytrawne, na finiszu pojawia się drewno i posmak czerwonego wina. Intensywność a równocześnie balans powala. Rewelacja.
