MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2010
UPDATED: APR 15, 2011 Bottle at KØ10. Good citric fruit aroma, nice earth notes as well. Cloudy deep red colour. Very small pink head. Good citric flavour, vinegary. Good fruitiness. A bit sweet for the style, making it more balanced than most Cantillon beers.

Scopey (15725) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle at Craft Beer Co tasting, thanks to Matt. It pours deep red-purple, with a thin white head. The nose is farmyard, juicy red grape, blackcurrant cordial, jam, lemon and chamomile. The taste is red grape, lemon, Granny Smith apple, citrus pith, lime, floral, eggy sourness and sour cherry, with a mouth-numbing sour finish. Medium body and fine fizzy carbonation. Massive drinkability, great balance, juicy fruit and sharp sourness. Great.

Keg at La Capsule, Lille, France. Clouded red to brown with white head. There is a fruity sweetness which is cut through by a tannin tartness. Woody notes, sharp and tangy, rich on the palate. Very pleasant.

Bottle. Poured hazy purple color with minimal fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good tart grape & yeasty aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy sour fruity flavor with a solid tart fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout lambic.
