Bottle 75 cl from 2001.Vintage This bottle have been putted away for some time in a dark and cool celler - very good idea...
The pour is golden redish with a tiny off-white head. The nose is crazy and fantastic full of the sweet rasberrys bot also notes of sweet gasolin. The aging have made this one more friendly, more round and relaxed but still with the sour snakebite that normally caracterise Cantillons beers. Strong rasberry-taste that isw both sour and fruity with a creamy smooth feeling.

Draught @ Ebenezer’s, 2005 vintage. Pours a clear bubbly red with a very pink fizzy head. Aroma is a slightly tart, dry rasberry, hint of fruity sweetness. Very tart, sharp, with rasberry emerging after initial shap vinegar tartness. Finish is lightly sour, with a faint rasberry exhale. Very carbonated, crisp, light bodied. Delicious.

2001 Vintage Bottle. Thanks to BDR for sharing this. Cloudy, dark orange pour, little head, with visible milky sediment. Intense aroma of raspberry. Flavor is very tart, plenty of raspberry. Quite acidic. Excellent stuff! Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2008
2005 vintage shared by BrianK at Courtney’s BBQ. Pours a pink red puree with a white top. Raspberry, earthiness, funk, sour patch, lemon acidy. Incredible lambik. Went back for seconds and 3rds.

2001 vintage, bottled sample. Translucent pink-gold in colour, with spritzy carbonation. Aromas of raspberry, rose, funk, earth, and nettles. Flavors consist of more raspberry, lemon zest, and a bit of lactic funk on the finish. Wickedly acidic! It practically burned going down, but was so refreshing and tasty. Near perfect for someone like me who can’t get enough sour/acidic flavors. I’m going to need to track down more of this stuff. Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2008
(bottle sampled at Heritage Liquors tasting) Pours dark red with a white head. Aroma is very strong with raspberry, some hay, and funk which, aside from the raspberry, are all typical from Cantillon. The taste is also very typical of all Cantillon beers, with a large amount of upfront sourness, but there’s this very well done undertone of raspberry that really sets this beer at a level above other Cantillons I’ve tried. Medium mouthfeel with a lingering sour/raspberry seed finish. airforce1 (61) - Atascosa, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Big Raspberry smell ....but wait! At first sip there is no raspberry, just a sharp sour funkiness then a mouthful pof fresh raspberries...very impressive! oakbluff (455) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 28, 2008
2001 Vintage. Bottle graciously shared by piscator. What a treat! Pours a beautiful rose colour, good clarity and one finger head. Nose- blast of raspberry and lemon zest. Taste- exceptionally acidic, raspberry of course, citric, and general funk. Not too dry, nice carbonation. Keeps zinging the pallette long after.. Fantastic!

On-tap at Novare Res, 2005 Vintage served in its proper glass ware
Poured a crystal clear read with little to no head
Aromas of raspberries and barnyard funk
Tart and dry flavors of raspberries it reminded me of a raspberry sweet tart with just a slight tingle of carbonation on the tongue
Very refreshing drink I had this as a desert brew as my wife and kids shopped for me for fathers day I really am getting into these sours as a summertime brew and this brew is one I will be revisiting soon
