Grabbed a bottle from one of the rare shipments that comes in now and again.
A - Pours with a fairly vigorous head that dies very quickly to a small ring of persistent bubbles around the edge. Color is a dull brown cherry red.
S - Very nice. Pretty heavy on the cider vinegar alongside raspberries. Smells much more sour than funky. Raspberries are the biggest component.
T - Tart and dry. Starts with a tart fruit burst, quite fruity at the beginning. The fruit fades a bit to let up some light funk with the tartness. Finishes quite dry. Not much oak presence here really.
M - Very refreshing. Pretty well-carbonated to go along with the refreshing acidity and fruit.
Overall a very good lambic. Not truly fantastic but certainly worth picking up whenever you see it.

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 -
