tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, - MAR 16, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 Ok, one of my last final rates before I retire and turn professional with my current beer project. As Cantillon has been such a remarkable and shamefully ignored brand I feel I should include them in my final rates On the eye this beer is extremely pleasant. Extremely red on the side but if you hold it up to the light there is a lovely sunbeam golden red colour which is really stunning. it is very hazy and dark but the colour is still gorgeous. The aroma is raspberries; perfume, white wine grapes and very faint lemons. The taste is plenty of strawberries, a sweet and ripe texture, the acidic levels is quite sharp and dry, very tarty but not too aggressive. The palate is sticky and almost lemon-tart like but very drinkable and an interesting taste of maybe elderflower combined with the raspberries. Really complex and challenging to describe. The sourness sticks to your mouth for quite some considerable time afterwords and this is no complaint. The finish is incredibly long; vinegary and woody. This beer is a bottle from 2008 and has evened out well. A classic lambic. Bought from Utobeer in Borough Market, London.

Bottle, at the brewery. 2014. Deep, cherry red. Soft haze. Ring of pink foam. Nose has raspberry purée and raspberry jam. Vanilla. Some clean, woody notes. Light funk. Taste is light, fresh raspberry sweet and tart. Super clean, refreshing mouthfeel. Gets dry and dusty. Crisp, sharp raspberry to finish. Lovely.

GTAEgeek (2338) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2017
2014 bottle shared at the brewery. Pours a dark, purplish-red color, with a small, cream colored, bubbly head. The nose is assertive, fresh raspberries, caramel, salt, bread, and yogurt. The flavor is sweet and fruity, and nicely tart. Light to medium body, with an acidic, crisp mouthfeel. Enjoyable, fresh fruity flavors, with excellent balance. Just wonderful.

@ Cantillon, the source. Aroma is heavy framboise, raspberry marmelade. Taste is sharp as a knife. Sourish raspberries. Puckering palate. Just had two sips so I'll try it again to re-rate.

750ml bottle @ Alex's, thanks Farees. 2011 Vintage
Pours a hazy rusty red colour with a thin off-white head. Nose is all raspberries with sourness. Flavour is funky, medium sourness, raspberries, light amount of oak, with a tangy tannin finish. Delicious raspberry character through and through.

beerplace (1954) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2017
750ml bottle at Alex's (thx, Farees!). Vintage 2011, bottled on 2014-04-28. Pours a rose-ish golden with a tan head. Aroma is lots of raspberry and some usual for Cantillon Framboise car exausts notes, much more of raspberries than in regular RdG. Taste is quite sour and dry with raspberries notes. Woody and cork aftertaste. Good, but not spectacular.

Flaska @ Cantillonbryggeriet. R�d l�tt besl�jad �l med ett l�ttare bubbligt rosa skum. H�rlig naturlig, syrlig hallonkarakt�r i b�de doft och smak. Tr�toner, fler b�r och frukttoner samt l�tt citrussyrlighet �kar komplexiteten.
