375 ml, 2013. Hazy, deep reddish color, quite opaque. Pink-colored head of at least two fingers worth of foam. Smell is very fruit-forward with plenty of sour cherry. Minimal lacto sourness. Musty, leathery Brett notes.

Fruity, slightly puckering with good cherry presence. Not so much sour as quite tart. Quite balanced for a sour in that respect. Sour cherry and oak, but not much else. Carbonation is nice and tame, leading to a pleasant mouthfeel.

A good straightforward fruit lambic, as expected from the likes of Cantillon. I don't like very sour beers so this suited me fine. Great flavor, but a bit lacking in complexity.
