On draft at the Brouwer’s sour ale fest. Pours a bright reddish copper with a ring of bubbles. Cherries and raspberries, with more of a barnyard funk than the kriek or the framboise. This one smells really nice - some apple cider with the brighter, tarter fruits. Slightly watery, but it has a great flavor, in line with the aroma, adding some dry red wine to the mix. Really nice. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 13, 2009
Copper with hints of cherry with white fizzy head and lace. A sour tart cherry/grape aroma. Very nice sour with a nice dry finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A very nice tart beer. ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 10, 2009
On tap at Novare Res.
Pours a golden red color. Aroma is mildly funky, there’s a bit of sour aroma, but it smells like a gueuze at first. Flavor is a little different, it’s super dry, but the red grapes give it that red wine flaver. Again it’s very subtle and has more of a gueuze like flavor...almost a cheese yogurt thing going on. Another delightful Cantillon! mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Bottle pours deep reddish with some brownish highlights. Funky barnyard aroma along with wine, Merlot specifically. Luscious mouth feel with big wine like body and some slight gueze like flavors. Smooth finish. Not bad and I am not a wine fan. noompa (130) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2009
On tap @ Map Room. Deep red fading to beetroot @ edges w/ an effervescent pink bubblyness @ the top; sour grape and cherry aromas; sour vinous flavor w/ grape skin, acidic bite and a woody dryness. Similar to the Vigneronne w/o the sea salt and more fruit. Nice. Sweetness perfectly moderated and quite tart.

on tap at maproom....slightly hazy red berry pour with a light pink milky white head...enticing aroma of strawberry and red fruits upfront with some barnyard and funk accents on the backend... tart and cheesy flavors. berries with subdued funkiness and lots of red fruit flavor. tart dry finish with a fluffy light mouthfeel that lends to its smoothness and drinkability. only if it weren’t so expensive.....

Sampled at Beerhawk’s Beer Gods in the Boro, aka 1000 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, By God Beer God Gathering, BG1K Tasting. My dear god. This is the type of lambic that turns me off entirely. Pinkish red pour with brilliant white head is extremely appealing, but that is quickly followed by the aroma of smelly butt cheese. Way to tart and not even fun to try. But maybe i’ll get into this style eventually... trapez (1563) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - APR 24, 2009
Bottle. Sour and yeast aroma with plenty of grapes and some wood. Nice unclear red colour with small white head. Sour and fruity flavour. Both appearance and flavour is close to rhubarb. Prickly nose. mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2009

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2010 Rating 1002, shared with funkybrewster and xnoxhatex. 2005 cork. Pours a murky pinkish orange brown with a fine white froth. Super funky barnyard aroma, very tart and nostril stinging, lightly cheesy, hint of berries, dusty yeasty funk. Fantastic tart super tangy quite sour funky lambic and old wine flavor, pretty amazing, I really enjoy this, moldy funky berries, just a hint of vinegar, fantastic woodiness towards finish, with huge lingering slightly tannic crusty wine aftertaste. Just a tad soapy. Medium bodied, a hint of creaminess, super fine sharp carbonation. I love it. Not as clean as most lambics but has great character. 126.96.36.199.18 . . . . . . . . .
