UPDATED: AUG 8, 2009 Draft at Max’s. Deep ruby red color. Very acidic vinegar aroma with lots of cherries. Really delicious. Nice and sour cherry taste with a really creamy oak finish. Heavenly

I really have to visit this brewery! On draft at Max’s 72 Hours of Belgian. A pink cherry gift from heaven. What can you say... yeasty, sour cherries. Slight woodiness and a bit of a carbonation kick. Nice....

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2010 75cl bottle. 2003. Pours wonderful unclear pink with a fine white head. Very sour & fresh & fruity aroma and taste. Cherries & matured oak notes. Very dry & fresh taste of sour cherries. Sticky & fizzy carbonation. Typical cantillon - typical wonder journey to the "pharcyde". Re-Rate June 2010 @ Ma Che Siete, Rome. Tap. This beer is just incredible and now one of my favorite cantillon beers. So fruity, crisp and refreshing. Lovely tartness . . . 4,1 - 4,2

[bottle, dated 2002] Nice aroma, very typical Cantillon house character, super funky yeast. Leathery oak and tart fruit. Beautiful reddish pink color with some fine white bubbles around the glass. Flavors are super tart, sour and dry. Fruit flavors are very well rounded, but again, so damn dry. Outstanding overall.

core rosso violaceo schiuma quasi buona puzza percui come si dice è buona acetica frutta sotto spirito in bocca aspra leggermente amara ma un persistenza lunghissima

Shared with my self when watching Danish Song Contest - a great experience; the beer - not the TV-show. Bottle 75 cl, bottled 2002. Small fizzy white head that’s mostly diminishing. Deep red colour, sparkling, lightly cloudy. The aroma is dominated by a great taste of cherry and cask wood. It is lightly malty and hoppy. It has a medium body, a sticky texture and a fizzy carbonation. It is very well balanced, moderate sweet, lightly bitter and heavy acidic/dry.

Holy cow, awesome!!! Pours a hazy, deep red with a course head. Scents of funk, sour and, cherries on the nose; very nice. Oaky, sour/tart flavor with a little spice. Leaves me salivating for more.

Its been about 3 weeks since I had this but moving to Japan has delayed my rating. First of thanks a bunch to Ross for breaking out this special brew, a 2005 vintage I believe. This beer pours out a nice deep reddish color with a very small pink head that went away almost instantly after pouring. Aroma is light and tart cherries with a touch of sourness and funk. Oak is very present on the nose as well. Taste is light and thin but full of flavor. Sourness of the lambic and tartness of the cherries blend very well. Slightly spicy but balanced agian by the wooden flavors. Very good, thanks again Ross.

Bottle 75 cl, harvest 2001, bottled 2002. A few extra years of age seem to have done wonders for this brew. Gorgeous red hue. Aroma of typical Cantillon funk and gueuze sourness complemented perfectly by sour cherries that break through more and more. Flavor is more of the same, the best blend of the gueuze and the fruit I have had to date. The champagne-like lambic blend has neither been overrun by the cherries, nor is it so powerful that you may as well be drinking a straight gueuze. Absolutely dances on the tongue, I didn’t want to ever swallow as it retained it’s flavors in my boiling mouth longer than I could have anticipated. Awesome.
