5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
75 cl bottled Oct. 12, 2011. Bright pink/red with a pink-white head. Nose is berries (mostly strawberry), leather furniture, some vinegar, vinous. Tart fruits, oak, wine, star fruit, bitter grapefruit. Tickling tartness. Not incredibly tart but left my mouth pretty numb 2/3 through. Soft spritzy body. Probably the driest finish of any beer I’ve ever had. Leaves the pleasant chalky dryness you get in your mouth after eating a banana or two. Just an incredible palate.
Bottle, courtesy of jamesy (cheers, buddy!). This is a great, curious bottle of beer. It’s earthy and a little bitter, with quite a bit more tannin bite than Cantillon’s lighter offerings. Moravius (1291) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUL 23, 2017
Flasche (75 cl, abgefüllt 2012). - Trübes Rubinrot. - Krachtrocken und doch rund mit holzig-trockener roter Traube, Anklängen an Himbeere und Bittermandel und gediegener Lambic-Herbe. Sehr trockene aber nicht übertriebene schlank-herbfruchtige Säure. Sehr tiefgründig wie ein guter Rotwein, dabei prickelnd rezent und enorm erfrischend. Kernige aber elegante Tannine. - Weder Bier noch Wein aber auf seine Weise völlig überzeugend. mrol (330) - - JUL 3, 2017

2015 bottle. Pours an opaque ruby red with a fading pink bubbly head. Aroma is of dark grapes, vinegar, tart, raspberries. Taste is of dark grapes, oak, dark berries, raspberry, vinegar, funky, tart. Oily mouthfeel, medium to hard carbonation. davidezdonz (504) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 22, 2017
A 750ml bottle, bottled on 14th November 2016. Poured into a wine glass. It was a very nice lightly cloudy ruby red colour with a two finger pinkish head that dissipated fairly quickly to a settled thin layer with only sparse lacing. Aromas of lots of tart red berries, raspberry and strawberry plus grapes and lemon. Nice barrel and oak character with a hint of red wine vinegar and only light funk and barnyard-iness. Tastes moderately sour, cherry, raspberry, strawberry, grape juice and oak with hints of grapefruit and funk. Dry, light to medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Overall with less than a year since bottling, there was lots of really nice fruit flavours bursting out while the funk was quite light. Although this particular bottle was quite young, it also taste great with age. Can’t wait to try more of this wonderful goodness.

2016 vintage poored into wineglass
When I opened the bottle it was like opening the door to the brewery. That recognizable funk fills the nose. Poors a beautiful raspberry pink with some Bordeaux hues.
Mouthfilling fruitiness and, slightly tannic, lots of grapeskins and ripe berries. Leini (2056) - SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2017

Great mix of Lambiek and wine. Best of both worlds. Very juicy lambiek and grapes. Awesome combination: the puckering effect of the Lambiek and grapes. Ferris (15475) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2017
Bottle - Red fruit and vinous notes. Deep ruby red with a decent white head. Soft red juicy fruit and light tartness. Very vinous and a dry finish.
