2006 sticker date, 2008 cork date. Thanks to Jim for this one, been waiting for a while to run across a bottle.

Pours a murky red/plum/pink color with a finger of light pink head that camps out for a while.

When agitated, a fresh raspberry aroma invades the nose and gives an absolutely amazing feeling that is hard to describe...if I close my eyes it is like I'm running through a garden complete with fresh fruit, dirt, grass, morning dew. Just incredible.

The flavor can't live up to the aroma but I'll be damned if it isn't spectacular anyway. Lots of dirt and stanky cheese underneath a blanket of raspberry, strawberry, and grape fruitiness. There is a sour bite that is magnified exponentially if you swish the beer around your mouth a bit before swallowing. I almost accidentally spit beer all over my keyboard because it hit a sweet spot on my tongue and made me pucker like crazy.

The finish is very long and full of raspberry. The body is medium and carbonation seems lower on the tongue than my eyes woud lead me to believe. Very juicy up front but a dry finish.

Overall this is an absolutely stunning, world class beer. Supremely balanced with a nice level of sourness that satisfies my craving without giving me rot gut. Huge fruitiness despite sitting 2 years in the bottle. Like with most Cantillons, a 750ML bottle needs to be split at least 2 ways so I really wish this one was available in 375's. Oh well. A beer this special needs a friend to share it with anyway.
