After having the Saint Lamvinus I know that Cantillon was a very special brewery and I had very high expectations comming in to this beer. And they were met on all levels. If you are not a fan of sour candies, tart citrus flavors etc. then this might not be the beer for you. But if you do enjoy the above mentioned things, then you might get a kick out of this one. The beer poured very smoothe and created a light amber color with hints of pink and a nice pinkish foamy head around the top. A very unique and beautiful pour. The smell was nice and musty with hints of hay, citrus and a dryness that can only be described as gueuze-like. The flavror was outstanding with a very good sour punch in the front, light malt sweetness in the middle and tart raspberries in the finnish. The perfect sour flavor lingers in your mouth and there is no other way to describe it other than perfection. Another winner from Cantillon!

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 -
