Pinkish red light white head. The head is appropriartly thin. I smell funk, oak, hourse blanket and cheese, yup cheese. Cherry is a more apparent flavor the more this lambic warms. The first taste that hits you is more of a sensation of lactic acid followed by oak and then very very tart cherry flavor. The amount of wheat in the grist is clear when you drink this beer. Obviously not too much hop action. I love the mouthfeel of a lambic, or geuze for that matter. Dry! prickly and super squiky. This lambic would get a higher drinability score but it is just so bracingly sour. I love cantillon, this lambic would benefit from a long sit in my cellar, and I believe thats what another bottle or two will get.
