Cantillion Lou Pepe Framboise 2005

Poured from the 750ml wrapped, oversize capped, and moldy-corked bottle into a Belgian Snifter.

Appearance- Beer pours a hazed pink with a thin film of carbonation on the top that quickly mists to the sides of the glass. Lacing leaves a little bit of sticky on the sides, but that's about all there. Haze looks to have a bit of wheat in there.

Smell- Natural raspberries and that amazing trademark Cantilion yeast strain that only their fine beers possess. A wonderful leathery funk that I can't even really call brettanomyces, this funk smells completely different. Who knows what has happened to this beer after the past four years? It certainly has a uniqueness in there that I can't figure along with the pediococcus.

Taste- Tart.. Very tart and puckering, the raspberries don't taste the slightest bit fakey like some other lambics that we know of. The lingering sourness is very similiar to if you ate an entire bushel of unripe berries and it sticks to the tongue, but this is not unpleasant at all. The carbonation seems to permeate and seperate the taste buds, I hope this isn't a palate killer on the first beer of the night, but if it is, what a great beer to do it with.

Mouthfeel- Tart, puckering, medium low in carbonation, medium bodied, not warming, vinegary, effervescent.

Drinkability- Probably the best frambois I will ever have in my life, smooth, tart, lightly tingling on the lips, something I would love to have every day and I'm not the fruit beer guy. Sadly, I will likely never see it again. I need to go to Belgium!
