joergen (29007) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2010
Bottle at One Pint, 2002-vintage. Cloudy orange coloured with a medium sized white ehad. Fruity and light acidic aroma of berries and red currants. Acidic flavour of berries and red currants. Acidic and tart berryish finish.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 9, 2006
Bottled (2002). Hazy orange colour, with hints more to the reddish orange. Small white head. Aroma is sour typical cantillonish lambic, but the redcurrant bring a certain sweetness to it. Same goes for the flavour. One of the "easier-to-drink" Cantillons, due to the small sweetness brought from the berries.

omhper (25568) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2007
Botled at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Pale orange, almost clear. Lemony acidic nose. The fresh red currant flavour adds just a whiff of flavour to te trademark lemony Cantillon acidic lambic. Citric acidity is the dominant feature. The lovely intense complexity of the lambic is dominant, the red currant is a compiment.

TBone (18105) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 3, 2005
Bottled @HBF2005, vintage 2002
Red hazy color, small white head. Very earthy, mouldy nose. Dry, delicious earthy red currant flavor. Very drinkable lambic, not too acidy or sour.

FatPhil (16960) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2008
375ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki)
Marmalade coloured. Some marmalade aroma too. Extremely tart taste. Fruity too, but not specifically redcurrant. Slightly peppery. A little bit of glue too from the heavy esters from the barrel. Puckering, but excellent.

Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2010
Bottle (Vintage 2002) at One Pint, Helsinki. Clear amber - white head. High high dryness. Lovely sourness. Fantastic aroma. Sour red currant. Light sweet notes. Lovely wooden. Almost Perfect.

rosenbergh (11759) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 11, 2010
330 ml bottle. 2002. One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Finland.
Hazy golden colour with tiny white head and floaters. Yeast, mold, earth and lots of sourness in aroma. Dry SOUR flavour with red berries, mold and earth. Extremely sour. Not easy one.

KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2009
Clear golden with a medium white head. Sour aroma with red currants, wood and barnyard. Very sour flavour with barnyard, leather, sour red currants, grapefruits and wood. Finished seriously sour.

JorisPPattyn (10060) - BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2005
Beautiful rosy colour with a peach to light foxy shine; good pinkish fine head, fast receding. Delicate fruit nose, fresh fruit, tannins and inevitable (and welcome) horseblanket. Soft, sour taste with a very surprising flavour, reminiscent of (green) sweet pepper peel or sweet pepper mash (coulis de poivrons (verts)). Finishes typical redcurrant, which flavour gradually enforces itself finally. Very dry finish, getting ultra-dry at the end. Outspoken dry-out effect. Superb realisation, in the line of the Soleil de Minuit, and even more the Buckthorn lambic. Great one, Olli!
