375 ml poured into two wine glasses. Thanks to khumbard for this bottle - I've wanted to try something, anything from Cantillon since I started getting into craft. Decollated, uncorked, ready to go.

A - not unlike a DIPA, bright orange on the pour, settles a little deeper in the glass. Perhaps slightly more head than one would expect, a little cloudy, and a nice film follows the top of the beer on the way down.

S - much subtler than I expected, sweet and sour. The vinegar dominates at first, but it fades into a candy-like sweetness. Not much fruit in detectable, but this is only my second sour (the first being Supplication; bring on the big 'uns).

T - yum, there's a big burst of sour acidity right at first, but it lingers in a delicious way. My girlfriend is puckering; I don't think it's very sour, just very mild.

M - big carbonation and a (slight) puckering character, but it's not unpleasant. I'm not a huge fan of 5% alcohol, but it's still very tasty.

O - I have yet to be totally blown away by sours, but I'm not going to let two beers characterize an entire style for me (unless it's AALs). I wish there was a little more booze in it, but it's definitely balanced.

Tasted at the Cantillon brewery next to their lambic.

Beer is brite, much clearer than the lambic, golden in color with a small white head.

The aroma is of straw, wheat, barn, and funk. Much more complex than the unblended version.

Sweeter than the lambic in flavor but still rather sour, with an acidic bite.

Less sharp, sweeter, better blanced than the lambic. The carbonation really helps with the acidity and makes it much more refreshing.
