4.38/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

May 2013 bottling date poured into a wine glass.

A- Pours a dull pink to almost rusty in color with a medium sized and fizzy head. The head sticks around a little bit and is a touch off white towards red in color. The remnants of the head are a patch of bubbles on the surface of the beer. Lacing is virtually nonexistent due to lack of head. The hazy body of the beer turns lighter in color, more towards a light amber, when held up to the light.

S- Funky and tart right of front on the nose for this beer. A hint of fruity raspberries provides some of the tartness, but most of the tartness comes from a largely vinegary quality in the scent. The vinegar and raspberries combine to provide the overall tart, yet fruity, smell of the beer.

T- Starts with a fairly tart bite right up front that is a mix of sour base beer and a slight hint of the raspberries. The same vinegary flavor from the scent is present in the taste and is more dominant. The raspberries kick in a little bit after the tartness from the base beer and provide just a touch of fruitiness to the flavor. A funkiness takes over the second half of the drink and provides a balancing bitter quality to help calm down the sour aspects of the flavor profile. This combination of base beer tartness, slight raspberry fruitiness, and funky bitterness is the overall impression and lingering flavor of the beer on the tongue.

M- Just like most other lambics and the other Cantillons I have had, this beer is incredibly high in carbonation and light on the palate. It is a little thin overall, but supports the complex flavor profile.

Overall, this beer is a little less fruity and displays less raspberry quality than I expected. I enjoy this beer, but there are much better raspberry sours in the US. That being said, the flavor of this beer is still very complex and the sour combined with the funkiness on the back end of the drink make for a solid overall beer.
