Poured from a 75 cl bottle into a Cantillon chalice. Bottled May 2013.
Appearance: Poured a one-finger head. Quickly dissipates in thickness, though a thin layer of foam remains on top. Cloudy, red. Good carbonation.
Smell: Sour cherries are the predominate scent. Slight floral notes. Maybe a dash of vanilla.
Taste: Sour cherries carry over, as does the slight floral notes. No vanilla. A little grapefruit comes in towards the end. Slightly medicinal. Light, dry, crisp. Recalls the sourness of some dry white wines. Amazing when paired with food as you would pair white wine.
Mouthfeel: Light, dry, slightly carbonated, and a little foamy.
Overall: Cantillon has quickly become one of my favorite breweries. This is my second 75 cl bottle and it grows on my each time. The sourness will come as a surprise to people unfamiliar with lambics. I could sip on this all day. So I will.
