There's a bit of a stigma -- and perhaps rightfully so -- that an all 5 beer is tough if not impossible to come by, so I always really think about it when I'm thinking of scoring something as a perfect 5. In this case, am I really going to knock the "appearance" of this beer?

Nah.

A perfect fruit lambic. The loud cork pop releases an intoxicating, invisible cloud of sourness; naturally one expects the dominant aroma to be that typical barnyard funk, Cantillon being the best of the best at capturing that natural, raw sensation.

Surprisingly, it's according-to-Hoyle raspberry that pushes itself to the forefront -- fresh raspberries, rotting raspberries, underripe raspberries. Each sniff brings about a variation on the theme to be sure. Raspberry sweetness precedes a wicked sourness. Rotten, delightful, ruinous, ascerbic fun wrapped up in a remarkably natural raspberry package.
