Picked up a bottle of this up in VT during my travels. This is a 2011 vintage. Poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a nice crystal clear vibrant gold with a one finger head that quickly faded to leave a super thin fizzy cap that never left.
S - Getting ALOT of musty funk on this one. Mostly the basement funk here with some super light citrus. Not really as potent as most Cantillons.
T - Very, very sour here. Which is pretty nice. Not getting much fruit/citrus just super sour dusty sacks/basement. Really different. Not a super huge fan but it is tasty. The finish is the lingering sour with light wood and some light vinous qualities. Not as complex as other Cantillons.
M - Mouthfeel is solid as usual. Nice light, carbonation, super dry and tart.
O - Overall, while this is a tasty beer its possibly my least favourite Cantillon. For me, it just lacks the complexity of others.
