Muddy deep red colour with a fizzy white short head. Cellar like very sour fruity cherry aroma. Very good mouthfeel. Berry, grape fruity bit sweet and quite sour cherry flavour with a dry long lasting sour finish. Thanks a bunch for sharing Pinball.

A little beer had soaked through the cork and was sitting between the cork and cap. 750ml bottle, 2005 vintage. Served from the cellar @ 50. Aroma is horsey, fruity, citrusy, acidic, and reminiscent of a dank cellar. Reddish color with copper hues and a smallish white head that stays just a short amount of time. The initial taste is horsey and acidic with light tart cherries and lemon zest followed by a rush of barnyard, wet wool horse blanket & leather saddle, lesser floral notes, a touch of red wine, and background notes of tart cherries. The acid is bracing, but not over the top.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2008
Bottle 37.5cl. Pours a murky bright red colour with basically no head and no carbonation. Smell is mostly cherries, also some cranberrys there. Taste is also that of cherries and has a almost biting sourness to it, but a nice sourness, also gives a nice cherry aftertaste when going down.

Unappreciated at the table. Sour. Cherry/red fizz. A pleasant drink that does not overwhelm with sour. In fact, I would want more.

trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2008
This is the second bottle in as many days that Ive needed a corkscrew for. Pours candy red, and pours like a syrup it fell silently into the glass, with a minimal amount of fizz that rose to the top. This ought to be different. The aroma is startlingly tart like sour cherry candy almost seems like they added some of that powder that coats sour patch kids. Cherries, sour raspberries and cranberries. Some musty barnyard funk, too. Yikes. This one actually makes me pucker its so tart. I can detect the cherries, and what taste like raspberries as well, but the tartness just overpowers everything, and its very superficial. Extremely acidic, no balance, and little depth / complexity. Big disappointment makes me wonder if it was a bad bottle.

Another score for Cantillon with this beauty. I’d have kept this one in storage for about 2 years, so for Thanksgiving it’s a good time as any to rip into this one.

The beer pours out a slightly hazy reddish/brown color with a slight pink at the edges with a pink foamy cap. Aroma is bitter/acidic (stomach acid) with some cherries, dust, and funk. Flavor was dry as a bone, with the subtle cherry flavor, lemony, and acidic. Great beer, enjoyed the bottle but not sure more than one I could do.

4.1
MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Small white head atop a shimmering, opaque grapefruit-center color. Nice bod! Nose is bitingly sour and dirty with cherry, earth, and dusty barn. Flavor has loads of fruit in it with some sour barn qualities. Very refreshing. Quite a creamy body and not nearly as crisp as Id expect. Another nice one from Cantillon.
