750ml bottle served in a Thumbler glass.
Cuvée Saint-Galloise purchased @ Mi-orge Mi-houblon - Arlon - Belgium.
Bottled @ the 17th of February, 2014.
A: Beautiful art, first of all. Cantillon trademark. Corked and capped bottle. Pours a hazy light orange color forming a thin but very fizzy and big bubbled white head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacings at all
S: Very malty and fruity. Very complex. Let me try to describe it: Notes of sweet malts, vinegar, grapefruit, leather, orange zest, honey, peaches, wet grass and flowery hops. A bit earthy in the end
T: Also very complex. Slightly sweet upfront becoming quickly, tart and funky. Moderate sourness, nevertheless. Notes of pale malts, vinegar, grapefruit, leather, orange zest, honey, peaches followed by an absolutely great hops bitterness and finished by some metallic and earthy notes. Lambic yeasts
M: Smooth, bit creamy and a bit molasses body. Fizzy "alive" carbonation. Malty/funky aftertaste
O: Perfect drinkability. Quite hoppy and bitter if compared to a classic Lambic Gueuze. Very unusual and interesting. IMHO, Cantillon is the best brewery of all times...
