This will be quite an interesting experience. Going from strong Belgian ales, this Lambic is a stark difference. Known for being the "champagne of Belgian beer", this most likely will not disappoint given Belgium's beer history. Now, on to the review...

Appearance - A stunning orange. Very bright and vivid. Pours out nice and the head is quite strong, however, it disappears rather quickly. After it sits, almost no head is visible. Nice and bubbly, though. A very active beer.

Smell - Quite a strong bouquet. Vinegar, lemon citrus, vanilla, flowers, sourdough and wine immediately come to mind.

Taste - Before you even have time to taste it the sour attacks your tongue. Quite shocking at first. Like biting into a ripe lemon. After the sourness settles, this beer really comes to life. Quite dry and bitter. Once the lemon and citrus notes tame down you can definitely taste the wheat. Vinegar, green apple, white sugar (even though there is no sugar added). Naturally sweet and tart. Very nice!

Mouthfeel - Nicely carbonated. Very refreshing, crisp and sharp on the mouth. Seems to stimulate the back, roof of the mouth more than other areas. Never really experienced that before.

Overall - Not normally a beer I typically resort to, but quite distinct and complex in its own right. Very light and refreshing. The sour characteristics do not seem overpowering (which is surprising considering how sour it really is). A beer worth trying if you wish to mix things up.

thanks to Kristine for the gift for helping her out

vinuous horseblanket funk smell.
slight head that dssipates to a thin film.
low carbonation.
straw gold appearance.
does not taste nearly like some of the best Gueuze I have had.
mouthfeel is light and does not get very tart.
overall taste is very bland.

A-Pours a hazy, glowing yellow color. Head immediately grows as I pour. After the pour, the head begins to die off and eventually almost nothing is left. Light lace rings.

S-Lively, acidic, tart aroma. Oakiness. Funky cheese rind. Organic and rustic. It exudes tartness.

T-Sharp, acidic, lactic sourness. Like biting into a lemon. Funky cheese. A bit dusty tasting. Slightly grassy. Finishes with a pleasurable oakiness.

M-Puckering. Lingering flavor. Very light bodied. Tight carbonation. Very easy to get it down but too much would probably abbreviate the stomach.

O-Pretty damn awesome. Very sour and complex. Intense and quite tasty. Another excellent Cantillon beer.
