From a 375 ml bottle (dated September 22, 2012) into a tulip.
A-The brew is a pleasant rose/raspberry color and slightly hazy. There is very little pink head and just a few streams of ultra-fine carbonation are visible.
S-The predominant smell is a funky, earthy fruit-flavored barnyard note. Sweetness and sourness are pretty minimal and the whole thing has a musty feel to it.
T-The taste initially follows the smell pretty closely with funky, earthy, musty flavors up front. However, the sweetness of the fruit builds and the finish is tart and acidic. There is a mild grainy flavor underneath the beer.
M-The feel is light and crisp with the aforementioned finish being long and saliva-inducing. The carbonation is very light.
O-This is not my favorite Cantillon because it lacks some of the vinous complexities that make the other Cantillons so damn good. Nevertheless, this is still a decent beer with good balance of fruit and funk and nice mouthfeel.

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 -
