I've had this in bottles in NYC and at the brewery. My favorite sour.

Sour fruit, dirty socks, etc. More sour and less sweet than Lindemans, for example.

The brewers seem disappointed that most people prefer the more fruit-forward "Lou Pepe" versions, but it makes sense to me -- the Lou Pepe versions will really make you pucker with the sour fruit.

This one was even better than Fou Foune - the most drinkable, but yet complex, sour I have ever had. Massive raspberry here. On a night we tried Fou Foune, St. Lam, and Iris, this was easily the highlight

Bottle consumed at the Holy Grale in Louisville Kentucky on New Years Day.

What a treat. This pours vibrant red with a minimal head but decent effervescence. The nose is a beautiful balance between neutral oak, raspberries, sour yeast, and cherries. The taste is right in line with the nose. Moderate level of tartness. Moderate carbonation, fairly thin, moderate smoothness.

This is not sweet or syrupy. This has a strong raspberry flavor that is tight in line with the tart level and influence from the barrel. Another home run from Cantillon.
