4.18/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Served in a chalice, poured from a 12 oz. corked bottle.
A - Bright translucent red with a very fine collar of bubbles around the edge.
S - subtle raspberry and weak vinegar aroma. Not as funky as other lambics I've had.
T - Delicate sourness with a great raspberry flavor. One of the finest tasting lambics I've tasted. Such a great balance of sour and fruit.
M - Great mouthfeel. The body is smooth but thick, like a fine red wine, only accentuated by the very delicate carbonation. An amazing sipper.
D - I shared the bottle with a friend, but i could easily sip through the whole bottle myself. Maybe not more than that, but it's still very drinkable.
Overall - An excellent lambic. Subtle, balanced, and easy drinking. I'd definitely buy it again if I can find it again.

Small bottle format of this Cantillon bottled in 2013
Appearance: clear red with a pink head that fizzed out rather quickly- hard to look away from it's so bright red
Smell: funk and barrel notes - some fruity notes here too. One dimensional but really good to smell
Taste: sparkling raspberry juice with funkiness on the palate as it washes down. Slight bitterness in the waay aftertase I assume are the hops - this beer has everything I want in a wild ale. Fruity not too sour.
Mouthfeel: awesome when cold. Real refreshing and fizzy. Really holds the temp very well.
Overall: I'm stoked to be having this brew for brunch. It pairs well with cheese and other fruits. I'd be down to buy it again as the bottle looks so cool and the tartness inside is soo tasty -
