A - hazy gold straw, delightful pillowy head.

S - muted, moderate funk, vinegar.

T - vinous, tart, hoppy, dry finish. Oak to the fore. Quite a light flavour overall. Not too sour, either.

M - quite light carbonation, smooth.

O - not certain if this is my favourite Cantillon due to dryness and oak, but still a top drop. Brilliant match with blue cheese.

750ml bottle. 2013 vintage. Aroma-wow, lots of funk, citrus, bleu cheese, pepper. A lot going on here. Poured a hazy straw color with no head, minimal carbonation. Taste-again, wow. Sour, tart, funky, mild citrus sweetness. As it warms flavors of spice and white pepper peek through. Finish stayed with me for hours. Lucky to try this. Simply amazing.

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.
