i have no idea if the ratings will reflect this or not, but while i was drinking this, i kept thinking its as good as the lou pepe edition. does it need twice the fruit or another year? i dont think so at all. this is a candy apple red pour, maybe a touch pinker, but really blood stained red, clear though, and with about a half inch of just tainted pink white head. it smells like candied cherries, not really fresh fruit, but not due to artificial sugar or anything, it think its more a product of the lambic base, which is tart as hell, a lot like the classic gueuze really, farmy and funked to high heaven, with a subtle barrel profile. good acidity on the palate, not overdone in the slightest, with the cherry getting more and more intense as the beer warms. wishing for nothing, i find this supremely delicious, and while it may not be as complex or as natural cherry flavored as the lou pepe version, i find it cleaner, equally tasty, and a little more blonde sour basey than its big brother. carbonation is on point, uncommon is real lambic, and frankly just freaking awesome. i find myself drinking it way too fast, but thats just the sign of killer beer. not the best ive had from cantillon, but on par in terms of quality with any of them.
