thanks for knocking this beer off my wants list Steve!

poured into cantillion wine stem. #properglassware!

Appearance- straw pale yellow bodied beer with a huge soft fluffy white head that has a decent amount of staying power. really elegant looking beer especially when sitting in a cantillion wine stem.

Smell- I can smell this as soon as a little bit of this beer is poured in the glass, don't need to even put my nose into this beer to know it smells great! immediately you smell 2 things... that trademark cantillion funkiness and that sour lambic twang! hint of floral and earthy hops. also smells fruity like white grapes.

Taste- mild tartness. moderately funky. minimal hop presence even though this beer is dry hopped. honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. as this beer opens up the funkiness goes through the roof and it begins to have a vinous quality in the flavor profile like that of a white wine. really and interesting and nuanced beer by cantillion.

Mouthfeel- light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. spritzy and delicate. it also feels so very fresh. the mouthfeel of this beer reminds me of spring. super easy drinking and really refreshing. premium mouthfeel as always when speaking of most all cantillion brews.

Overall- I wasn't really sure what to expect of a dry hopped lambic, but I am here to tell you this over exceeded my expectations very much so.
