Bottle purchased online from belgiuminabox. Served in a De Cam tumbler.
The pour is a light maroon with a bit of a purple tint. Fizzy head forms and then quickly falls away. The nose is very bright sour cherry with a bit of blackberry in the background. No gooseberry, though I assume that just falls behind.
Flavor very sour and tart with mild earth. Extreme fruit. It doesn't have the extreme woodiness from gooseberry like Cantillon Feestbier (or the gooseberry homebrew I've done), which is a great thing, as that gets to be far too over the top.
Tart and sour through and through without ever reaching the Cantillon "it's a bit too much" point. Low level funk.
Really a great beer. For something less hard to come by, I'm pretty sure you could get pretty close to this blending good cherry and raspberry lambic, maybe at a ratio of 2:1.
