In your face sour cherry flavour and aroma. It then smooths out to be a beautiful funky cherry beauty.

Cantillon Rosé De Gambrinus
Ładny, czerwony kolor. W zapachu spora kwasowość. Smak - dużo malin, kwaśne pestki, dużo dzikości. Na dalszym planie wychodzi owocowość, sporo brettów, siano.

Cantillon Rosé De Gambrinus
BOTTLE 37,5 CL. Clear bright purple, pink sparkling head. Loads of tart raspberries - not sweet at all but with light fruity note masquerading as sugars, raspberry seed nuttiness overshadowing the lambic funk. The flavor is similar, very dry but not acidic. Pretty "clean" and fresh for a lambic, if I can put it this way. Light raspberry seed bitterness. Not super complex, but bright and vibrant.

Cantillon Rosé De Gambrinus
Ślicznie sie prezentuje kolor jak syrop malinowy, piana cudna drobna i całkiem sie długo utrzymuje. Zapach to maliny maliny i jeszcze raz maliny, lekko kwaśny i nutka derki. W smaku maliny obecne, lekko słodki ale nie mylić ze słodyczą tych "złych" lambików, ;) spora cierpkość oraz lekki koń. Nie jest bardzo kwaśne ale przy większym łyku lekko pali w przełyk. Cóż piwo zdominowane przez maliny ale czy to źle? Jest to naprawdę kawał dobrego lambika i posikał bym sie gdyby moje było chociaż troszkę podobne klasą do niego.

Cantillon Lou Pepe Pure Kriek
2012 vintage on tap at Himmeriget, Copenhagen. Pours ruby red with small pink head that disappears. So much cherry in the aroma. Also packed with jammy notes, wood, tarty deliciousness, stable/barn, funky, vinegar. Taste is amazing! Super complex, but bounds of tartiness and is tastefully dry. Has all of the woody, oaky flavours alongside the fruitiness you’d wish! Such a lively beer.

Cantillon Saint Lamvinus Grand Cru
Bottle at the source. Almost flat (no added sugar) with a wonderful deep red color. with beautiful subtle notes of the merlot grapes giving it a deep flavor of red berries and dark grapes. Some vanilla, tannins and balanced funk. A beautiful lambic indeed!

Cantillon Iris
Pours an almost but not quite clear pale copper colour with no head. Nose has cheesy funk along with sharp citrusy aromas. Can’t really detect much hop, well maybe a little. Very clean but still very very fragrant. The taste is rich with bretty notes of citrus and drying tannins. Juicy even and leading to a chiselled sharp finish and a fairly long aftertaste. I haven’t had this in a few years and I’m pleasantly surprised at the revisit. This is world class stuff

Cantillon Lambic Armagnac
Taster at source Feb2017, merci Ken for sharing. - Smooth and oily cassonade beigebrown pour, my favourite. Grapesweet aroma meets oak and cheesy hops, almost as beguiling as my favourite Girardin lambiek - midway to faro. Cantillon lemons surface underneath again a green grape jelly sweetness, while the oak barrel/armagnac smooths over obvious rougher edges adding a classy veil to the earthy rusticity underneath. Flabby tarte of old lemon peel & vanilla sugar. Love the mid-lieblich oiliness. Chiquen armagnac and volksen lambiek - faut le faire, et ils l’ont fait.

Cantillon Rosé De Gambrinus
Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the Koleminer20 Turns 3k and Ebone1988 turns 1.6k Bonanza. Aroma is raspberry jam, just incredibly jammy, slight funk, tart, very very nice. Appearance is red, purple red head, slightly hazy, beautiful. Taste is raspberry, tart, funk, fruit falls off very quick, some mineral, not as jammy as I’d hoped. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, funk and slight tart raspberry aftertaste. Overall, if that raspberry could have remained in the taste, this would have been amazing.

Cantillon Lambic Cabernet Franc “Moeder 10 Ans”
Bottle shared at Moeder Original. Hazy red color with small white head. Aroma is grapes, peppery, quite aggressive and fresh barnyard, touch of acetone even, blood orange as well. Taste is grapes, a bit peppery, blood orange, barnyard, with quite an acidic finish, citric acid as well. High but medium-bubble-sized carbonation. Good, but Tilquin Pinot Noir was much better.

Cantillon 50°N-4°E
Dégustée à l’occasion de l’anniversaire du Vices et Versa en compagnie de Marc-André. Un grand merci à l’établissement pour nous offrir un tel évènement annuel! Une robe ambrée, des bulles qui ne s’éteignent jamais. Une gueuze unique en son genre. Je dirais que de l’ensemble des produits de Cantillon qui m’ont été donnés de déguster, ce produit est de loin le plus original. Le côté lambic est modéré ici. Peu ou pas sèche ni poussiéreuse, un liquide au corps bien ample et peu funky. Une douce chaleur de cognac, du cuir, de l’orange et du tabac. Très différent d’un assemblage ou même d’un lambic, mes 2 verres de 7 onces m’ont accompagnés plusieurs heures pendant lesquelles ils n’ont rien perdu de leur complexité. À reboire certainement!

Cantillon Kriek
375ml bottle @ home. Bottled 2015.12.28. Pours a very cloudy pinkish red colour with a decent pink head. Nose is tart cherries and classic Cantillon funk. Flavour is a nice balance of tart cherries, sourness, and sweetness all wrapped up in a tart but dry finish. Fine example of a kriek and look forward to my other vintages.

Cantillon Gueuze (Classic/Organic/Bio)
Hazy light bronze, robust ever-lasting finely bubbled head that glaciates its way down the glass. The retention on this beer was remarkable. Aroma is awesome and ever-changing throughout the drinking experience. Initially lots of basement must and cobwebs, followed variously by notes of light vinegar, petroleum, white grape juice, horseblanket, and dried out corn stalks in autumn. Flavours are complex as expected, but are centered around a surprisingly toasty malt base (not expected). Lots of funky horseblanket, light pear and green grape fruit, some yoghurty lactic acidity, light vinegar, light acetone. Finish is mildly sour and astringent. I was anticipating this with high expectations, and I was not disappointed. Absolutely fantastic

bottle, pours an opaque reddish pink with a small pink head. Aroma of pungent sour cherries, quite a bit of funk, and a bit of horse blanket. Flavour is very similar, bringing out moderately sour cherries, a prominent funkiness and moderate horse blanket. Everything is in great balance, tasting very pure. Really one of the best krieks out there. Excellent.

pours reddish pink with a small pink head. Aroma of sweet wild raspberries and ample tartness / sourness. Flavour is more pronounced with the wild and tart qualities, with wild berries, moderate funk / barnyard qualities, medium tartness. Dry, funky palate with a great inclusion of the berries. Excellent stuff.

Cantillon Blåbær Lambik
Bottle. Himmeriget, Copenhagen. 2016 version. Darkest pink. Soft haze. Pale pink, foamy head settles to a thin ring. Nose has that unmistakable Cantillon cobweb fustiness. Soft, tangy, ripe red fruit. Some vanilla oak. Some new leather. Taste is dry and tart, with a light, berry sweetness. Mouthfeel is cleansing, with some acidity. Finishes dry and slightly acidic. Hint of berry sweetness hangs in until the close.

Citric, lactic, peppery, funky, fruity, pale, hazy, definitely sour but pleasant and tremendously refreshing, light bitterness, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, very long lasting astringent nice finish. It’s hard to describe a beer like that, just try it and enjoy. I found it in keg and I had two glasses because one wasn’t enough to get me satisfied.

Cantillon Carignan
Bottle at the brewery. Pours a deep cranberry red with a good pink tinged head. Aroma has the red grape subtlety with the funky Cantillon aroma. Taste is really fruity and jammy up front with a mellow funk at the end with the tartness building right at the finish. Lovely soft carbonation. This is great stuff and probably the best beer I’ve had from Cantillon.

Bottle all to myself at the brewery. Pours clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma is apple, tart fruits, a little booze and funk. Taste is a mellow sour, apple plenty of funk and a little boozy aftertaste. Good carbonation. Had this beer a whole ago before rating and was one of my favourites. Happy to report it is still fantastic.
