From Steamhead, an awesome trader if there ever was one. Thanks, Blake! Poured from the bottle into my Lost Abbey tulip.

It pours clear, bright raspberry red with a mighty, fizzy pink head. As expected, the head quickly dissipates to a thin collar.

This smells as though someone smashed a huge jar of raspberry preserves in a musty old attic. And I mean that in the best way possible. If anything, I would like this to be a little bit more dusty and funky in the nose, but as it is it's nicely fruity. No complaints.

Taste is very good. Sweet, ripe, fresh raspberries are first and most obvious. The characteristic Cantillon sourness takes over mid-palate, leading to a dry finish. It is not as mouth-puckeringly sour as many traditional lambics, but it's sufficient to give me my fix.

Mouthfeel and drinkability are both top-notch. This beer doesn't get top marks simply because I think that there are similar brews that are just a smidge better on these points (St. Lamvinus, Girardin Gueuze 1882 Black Label, to name a couple). Oddly, I think that if this beer was more sour, it would get higher drinkability points from me. But that doesn't mean that this brew isn't fantastic.

Cantillon rarely disappoints. This is another good 'un.
