My first Cantillon, whee! 2013 vintage, consumed fresh. 375ml bottle into Night Shift snifter. Big thanks to my lovely girlfriend katalijne for sharing her Christmas present with me ;)

Pours a majestic grapefruit-red with a frothy one-finger pink head. Head dissipates swiftly, leaving visible carbonation in the form of a steady stream of bubbles and a light ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. No legs or lacing, as expected.

In the nostrils, a strong, lactic barnyard funk mingles pleasantly with tart berry notes. Raspberry is not the dominant fruit note, surprisingly--I do smell it, but also strong notes of sour cherry and tannic oak. Very pleasant.

In the mouth, a strong lemon juice tartness up front yields to a mid-palate full of tart raspberry as well as sour cherry, oak and tannins, earthy funk, vinegar, and a subtle Belgian yeast spiciness. Finishes oaky and tart. Almost sweet at times from the fruitiness of it, but the funk and vinegar tartness combine to keep it skirting the sweetness line rather than crossing it.

On the tongue, crisp, effervescent, and very dry. Relatively high carbonation keeps the beer refreshing and the tartness from becoming overwhelming.

On the whole...I get the hype now. I really do. This is a delicious and refreshing sour, and I truly hope this is only the start of my Cantillon consumption.
