Bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm 24 May 2006
Apricot. Muscat grapes. Tropical fruits. oak barrel. Acidness. Cantillon taste is not so prominent as it usually is. Bood balance of wine/lamic. Soft. Some tobacco in the aftertaste. One of the best new Cantillons.

pushkinwow (2755) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2017
Bottle from Per at Ottawa meats Sweden tasting, cant thanks enough for letting us get to try this, although the entire evening and just getting to hang out was a blast...hopefully some Ottawa folks will get to come visit at some point. Opaque pale orange pour, no head. Lemon, horse blanket, dry, acidic, musty cherries, saddle, grape skin. Moderate carbonation and smooth body, opens up and develops as things warm up and it has a chance to breath.

ClarkVV (6401) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 20, 2016
750mL bottle drunk 10/8/16.
Burnished copper-to-rosy-orange body shows great clarity and plentiful sediment left behind. Still musters an off-white head even....
Pretty unmistakable mint-like phenol in the nose is initially very interesting and odd, but hey, gruner and riesling produce petrol notes when aged so its all fair game. Anyways, its not dominant and does easily subside with some breathing....which this beer really benefits from as its quite the curious puzzle. Notes range all over the place from marmalade, other various citrus notes, yogurt, minerals...the strong acidity that was typical of their beers around this time period is here, but its not aggressive in the nose. No sulphur or acetic character here, though its quite funky with tons of horseblanket, cherry pie-like brett and finally no alcohol or flaw.
Begins very tart and acidic, much like Don Q, though theres far less overt grape here (or maybe muscat just more readily homogenizes with the lambic). Opens up over the hours with wonderful cork, leather, spicebox, candied citrus, cherry pie and plentiful funky horseblanket. Engaging carbonation is perfect, as usual, from Cantillon, as is the soft, supple texture of the liquid. A good one here, for sure, and I suspect this one needs a full bottle sample to fully understand. The only problem with that....

Huhzubendah (3687) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Im beyond grateful for the opportunity to try this. Thanks Clark! Decanted. Light orange with a broken bubble head. Aromas of funk, mint, earth, basement, mineral, floral notes. Intensely tart grape character. Light acetic finish complex and lovely. Green grapes, mint, herbal notes. What a treat.

Peach color lambic with minimal head. In the nose, there is fruit with wood and lambic notes. An extremely sour lambic.

manker (74) - SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2014
Last bottle @ Akkurat. Elegant and complex with the standard gueuze flavors of lemon and barnyard receiving additions from the wonderful grapes with notes of apricot and raisins. Not as complex as Menu Pineau but still wonderful, too bad its gone.

gn0sis (68) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Sampled at Akkurat with Joe and Chris, 2012. Pours a hazy golden yellowish hue from our lambic basket into a tumbler. Active carbonation, moderate head retention and sweet dusty grape aroma for miles. This was like "Lou Pepe Vignerrone" in a way, a more heavily dosed version perhaps than the standard Muscat offering. Long, bracing acidity with residual sweetness and extremely dry grapeskin presence. A treat I wish I could have again and again, sadly these couple bottles were likely to be the last Id ever try. Definitely a tough act for Reed Pinot to follow!

teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 7, 2013
75cl bottle at Akkurat. Not on the list. It pours a hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma is full on vinous notes with acidic notes and light funk. Lots of white grapes and musk. Taste is big sour funk just partly mellowed by the grapes sweetness. Woody, musky, zesty notes in a long dry finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, very good, even beyond expectations.
