On tap. Pours cloudy orange. aroma is grapes, red fruits and barnyard. Taste is light sour and definite brett flavours. Medium body with average carbonation.

Diogne (1207) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle, hazy purple with a thick head. Aroma is fruity and tart with grapes and sugar. Flavor is acidic but less than the usual cantillon with sugar, tartness, funky notes, and a nice mix between lambic and grapes. A good lambic.

Shared by Sliffy at C-bus 6. Dan knows I love a good lambic--and he picked a great one here. Lovely light sour aroma with some hints of maple syrup actually--probably from the oak. Looks like a hazy golden and red sunset. Perfect palate for this style. Great balance off the bat in the flavor department with a nice marriage of oak and sour flavors. Vinuous for sure, and not overpoweringly sour like some lambics can be. One of the best Cantillons Ive had so far.

beautiful red appearance with white head. flavor is classic sour lambic but red grape sweetness quells the sourness and provides some smoothness at the end. great

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 30, 2007
Bottle, head-to-head RBESG 07. Slightly reddier than the unblended, thin white head. Nose is sweet, slightly more balanced than the unblended, vinous and really packed with fruit. Mouth is grapey gueuze with some sweet acidic tones. Tartness towards the end is to die for. Superb.

CamdenD (1195) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 30, 2012
Surprisingly bitter. Almost cider-like -- in the Austurian-natural tradition. Aroma has grapes but the taste is more mellow in that regard. Drinks a bit like a gutturnio frizzante. Wow.

750mL. Best before 12/12. Very sour. Finishes with grape juice. Not super funky for Cantillon. Or perhaps it is real funky, but its covered up by the grapiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful pinkish raspberry red pour with awesome white head. Taste is mildly fruit and funky with some oak.

As usual for Cantillon, I loved this. dark burgundy with a head of a lighter shade. As always, the great balance of tart, sour, dry, sweet, funk. This time with some wood interplay and a slight sweetness at the finish.
