37.5 cL bottle at Ølbaren. Pours hazy red with a creamy off-white head. Aroma raspberry fruity and dry. Flavour is dry raspberry fruity with a light dry wooden note. Dry acidic to citric finish. Classic Cantillon dryness yet delicate fruity touch all the way through. Ungstrup (37301) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2003
The aroma is very special a little metallic and sour and like a dunghill - attracting and repulsive at the same time - very interesting. It is clear red with a head the starts big but vanishes extremely fast. The flavor is flat, rather acidic and yet sweet - it lingers on the palate and lips. The nicely sour - without being too sour. It only has hints of metal in the flavor. It is very hard to tell, that it is a Framboise. joergen (27983) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2005
Bottled at DBF 2005.
Orange pink coloured with a white head.
Aroma of fruits with notes of lactic acid.
Acidic flavour with lots of fruits and acidic notes. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2006
Bottled. Very reddish colour with some amber hints, almost no head. While pouring sweet strawberry/raspberry mixed aroma, with the Cantillonish-bitter-sour notes coming after it is in the glass. Strong Cantillonish lambicflavour. Aftertaste has some weak fruity and berryish hints, but as usual the sourness/bitterness covers it up pretty much. Some wineish hints also.

Draught @ The Rake, Borough. Pours a pinkish reddish color with a pinkish white head. Fruity tart raspberry aroma. Tart fruity and sour raspberry flavor. Fruity tart finish with a long aftertaste of raspberries. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Pretty pink colour and pink head. Sour nose with only a vague memory of raspberries. Sour, vinegary flavour that completely overpowers the berries - what a shame. Acid all the way through. This is a typical Cantillon tastebud killer - mainly a beer for the masochistic beer drinkers. 160598 omhper (24970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2002
Very authentic lambic, which means really sour. Cocktail berry red. Not much raspberry flavour at all, just a slight hint. It’s good, but just too sour for me to fully enjoy, as I react physically to the sourness - my cheeks contract, and my throat and stomach burns.

Sampled draught. Clear red. Acidic nose with a tart raspberry aroma. Very dry, the raspberry flavour is well balanced and not overpowering the subtlety flavurs of the gueuze. Bordering on being too acidic for me.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Pink beer, is this supposed to be fruity? Incredibly sharp and sour. Not easy to drink but not entirely unpleasant. 2010 note: Thus the struggle with Lambics begun!
Tasted a 1986 bottle, brewed in 1984, stored well at the Kulminator in Antwerp.
Cloudy orange/amber with scant head. Aroma of raspberries, lemon, and wet horse-blanket (but in a good way!). Potent sourness, dusty dryness, and a yeasty-finish. More complex, more sour, and drier than a younger bottle.
