Cracked this open to celebrate the overturning of Prop 8, to the tune of We Are the Champions with some friends.

A: Yellow/orange with a white ring of head.

S: Nose has a lot of Belgian funk, tropical fruit and lemon, maybe a touch of orange.

T: Lemon, funk, orange, tropical fruit and raspberry.

M: Medium bodied and smooth.

O: One of the better sours I've had. I payed something like $45 for a 2011 in 2013.

Note: 2011 vintage, consumed in mid 2013.

Bottle marked as St Gilloise. Shared wtih many at my cellar cleaning party.

Light fizzy head, clear golden orange color.

Nose awesome, great sour, tart fruit, lambic funk, light bready malt, just pure awesome lambic blending.

Taste mild hoppy slight grassy hop, then nice tart lambic, sour fruit like, lemony grassy and bready tart funk, juicy but tart, little flemmy tart sour finish, delicious.

Mouth med to lighter bod with little flemmy, lactic acid, nice carb.

Overall great lambic blend with good hoppy touch to it, a really interesting beer. I don't think there is anything the Cantillon family can touch without it turning to gold.
