3.23/5 rDev -24.9%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance: A shiny reddish orange, I would consider it firey the head quickly dissipates.
Smell: It has the like the funky smell that the other Cantillon product I have tried has, I can smell the cherry but barely. Honestly, I do not love the smell of this beverage; perhaps my palette isnt developed enough yet.
Taste: Tart, overwhelmingly tart. The cherries are defiantly there as is a little sweetness. The aftertaste is quite pleasing, and as I drink it the sourness becomes less overwhelming. As I drink the beer the acidity begins to become less of an issue, it is still pretty tart but I would classify it as acquired taste.
Mouthfeel: Very balanced, a nice light snap of carbonation. I do like the mouthfeel of the beer.
Drinkability: I am glad I only bought a 375 mL bottle, as I would most likely not be able to finish a full sized bottle alone. I really want to like this beer, and I think I need to get myself more used to the sheer tartness and review this one again.
Serving type: bottle
