look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

found on tap @ collins bar (manhattan) this tuesday, a couple of BA's and I went specifically to the bar to have this on tap as we were in the city to see the band King's X @ BB King's that night..

$8 for a 10oz portion

eyes...
clean and clear looking fruit punch, maybe "blush punch". No discernable head but this is a lambic so looks are not what makes the style imo.

nose...
subdued strawberries melted in geuze. The bret smell was mild compared to bottle versions (to be expected), it had the belgian trademark funk nose but it was so scary balanced and pleasant it was like sniffing perfume.. perfume for BAs but perfume none the less. I let my nose linger in the glass for some time... it just had the perfect aroma of wild sourness that cantillon is known for but a super nice balance of fruit as well... I sniffed it full and often with every sip. fantastic.

taste etc...
sour, very sour, like most cantillon offerings but the subtlety in the fruit was so nice. The mouthfeel was divine, at first it enters the mouth like fruit punch, almost watery.. then it happens, it develops into this full tasting experience, the carbonation opens up when in the mouth... utterly devine, period. The sourness and mild repreive of the strawberry flavors were perfect for a spring day (as tuesday was just a lovely day out here). Refreshing, tart, finished dry enough to make you want more. An absolutely excellent offering on tap. I don't give 5's easily or often.. and this one pushes me to nearly 5's on all fronts as I can barely find fault with this amazing brew...

verdict?
there is no question this is world class... it made me question my commitment to my "favorite" cantillon (the geuze)... so damn sour and so damn tasty...
like no other beer, cantillon continues to amaze.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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 -
