(from 75cL bottle @ the brewery)
Bottle @ Cantillon shared with Maakun and Sjogro. Nice clear red color, average sized off-white to pinkish head. Very vinous aroma. Flavor is vinous, dry, lightly dry grape fruitiness. More wine than beer but nice though. harrisoni (19412) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2017

A younger, more experimental variation on the classic Saint-Lamvinus, Cantillon's famous red grape lambic, this one omitting the two year old lambic and containing 2/3 three year old lambic and 1/3 one year old lambic. Thin, quickly dissolving, loose, 'dirty' off-pinkish head, basically a flimsy rim and not much more, over a hazy purplish-hued, red wine coloured beer. Aroma of blue grape skins, sour yoghurt, old dry sherry, 'furniture'-like wood and grape seed tannins, fermenting apples, wet hay, sour cherry juice, unripe gooseberries, stale old urine hint. Astringent sourness in the onset, unripe stonefruit and grape peel wryness, more wry almost than I remember the regular Saint-Lamvinus was (but my memory might fail me here) but not harshly puckering, lots of fruitiness from lambic esters drenched in grape juice tartness, softish carbo, drying lactic sourness all through, wheaty and lightly bready underbuilt, lots of wry and drying tannins in the finish from wood and grape seeds and skins (more so than in the regular due to the much higher proportion of old grape lambic, in which both the wood and the fruit have penetrated for a longer time and thus more thoroughly I assume), lovely leathery 'old lambic Brett' accents retronasally, dry hay, complex and bone dry, very quenching. Smooth, more vinous and more deeply 'penetrated' by fruit and tannins than the regular, wonderful, but I still think I prefer the regular Saint-Lamvinus - which I should urgently re-rate as it's been way too many years since I last had it. 90 (879) - BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2017
Aroma is very vinous, massive grapes. Taste is still funky. Slippery equilibrium, which makes it interesting. Fermented grape skins. Juicy lambiek. Palate is full and funky. Very nice.
