Bottle shared by bmanning at a recent tasting along with Azurelimits, amyliz4, and hhanson.
A: Pours a bright gold with a nice single-finger or so bone-white head.
S: Nice touch of hops in this one, which really stands out, especially as earlier in the night I had said I'd like to a sour with some dry hops coming into play. This worked out really well in the nose alongside sourness, some funk, and general earthy characteristics.
T: Funk, wheat dryness, citrus, lactic sourness, a bit of acetic acid, and some hoppy characteristics, mostly of the dry, floral variety.
M: Very nice all-around sourness in addition to some nice dryness. Good carbonation. As always with Cantillon, nothing really to complain about.
D: Very nice. After this I'd love to try a fruitless wild ale, gueuze, etc. that had been freshly dry-hopped with something like Amarillo.
