ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark rose-red color with a medium sized pink head. Aroma is funk, cherries, vineous, oak. Flavor is dark tart cherries, oak, grapes, barnyard, lemon. Palate is medium light, medium to high carbonaton, tart, dry finish. This is a really fantastic brew. Tons of tartness and refreshing acidic fruit flavors make this an excellent summer brew. That being said, its way too pricey for me, glad I got to try it, but wont be doing it again any time soon. I think their whole line up is fantastic, so you cant go wrong at any price point.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 Light ruby body with a very short-lived head. Nose is woody and funky. Taste is dry, very dry. Supposedly aged with grapes in oak barrels, the barrels is a lot more predominant than the grapes. All kinds of dry woods on the tongue. The beer is indeed fruity but the flavour is not particularly focussed on grapes. More of a general red fruits flavour (grapes, cherries, berries, etc.). Some acidity but nowhere near the level of their Gueuze. In this case it is the woody dryness and not the acidity that makes it a sipper. I prefer their more standard and cheaper products but this is truly an excellent beer with its own personality. Its only problem is its stiff price tag. At only 5% it could be an everyday beer, but at $20/bottle ouch! Its not that I would mind being poor as long as it doesnt prevent me from having a lot of money.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2007
Aroma: wonderful, complex, rosen, perfume, malty, sourish, old, musty, rich, grapy, fine bath bombs, cherry sweetness, tulips.
Appearance: really dark cherry red with quickly fading pink foam. Very nice. Opaque.
Flavour: initially soft, grape flavour. Sexy sourishness, vague sweetness, well balanced & very elegant. Vinous, lactic aftertaste.
Palate: powerful but incredibly soft and smooth. Frighteningly smooth. Distinct but nice carbonation.

JK (5975) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 22, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2007 Courtesy of Joebrew. The aroma has cherry, and lots of it. Considerable barnyard aroma. Flavor has lots of cherry and light oak. Raw grape flavor. Acidic and sour, but the cherry is still there. Bright, Burgundy color.

Thank to Joebrew for sharing. Dark red pour iwth a delicious sour nose. Dry body with hints of oak, cherry, grape, and barnyard. Sourness almost had a lemon tinge to it for me. A most excellent pour.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Bottled. Poured medium rose with a very nice initial cap of light pink head. Aroma was of soft vinous notes accenting some dusty barnyard funkage.. lemon and vinegar in there as well. In the flavor, tart vinegar washed over the front of the tongue with wheat and lemon-accented dust across the middle.. hint of sweetness along with the tart, lemony-vinous finish. The tartness was not too aggressive, and the overall balance was superb.. well-integrated barrel characteristics. Great one!

thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle. Hazy, orangey red with a light pinkish head that disappeared completely. Woody nose, lemony lambik in the background, just a hint of other fruit. Good lemony lambik flavours, fruit is more pronounced in the mouth and marries well with the lambik. The wood comes in especially towards the dry finish. Another great invention from Cantillon.
