Botte date 27- may - 13

Had at Kulminator in Antwerp

A: 3 finger head with tiny soft pink bubbles that slowly slid to a steady half finger that rested on top of the beer. Hazy, grapefruit meat pink color with moderate haze - more towards the bottom of the bottle - poured from a basket.

S: Huge juicy raspberry smell like they were just picked from a garden - not cooked and jam like. Undertones of tart cherry and strawberry and pomegranate. Very complex fruit aroma. Tartness aroma is medium and dominated with the berries.

T: Huge bright tart raspberry, cherry lemon tasting sourness. very complex and intense. Funky hay is very low in the background. wood is almost non existent.

M: Mouth puckering sourness with a dry crisp finish. Carbonation is medium with zero alcohol warming (or anywhere for that matter) light body and very refreshing.

O: Everything I've ever wanted in a frambroise.. Perfect intense and complex

One thing I've noticed with Cantillion, other than the price, is the sublime simplicity of taste. This gives a full raspberry sweetness with a bit of tart and sour. Light and crisp mouthfeel, this is deliciously simplistic.

Enjoyed on draft at the Holy Grale. Zwanze 2014.

A. Ruby red with a fine bubble head that's slightly red. Translucent. A healthy film remains.

S. Sour. Tart cherries, rasberries, apples, neutral oak. The fruits and sour yeast combine for a delicate and subtle nose that is not really complex, but very well balanced. Certainly the wild spores of Belgium are pronounced.

T. Follows the nose very nicely. The rasberries are much more pronounced but a strong cherry flavor is prevelant. Big neutral oak and slight hoppiness.

M. Way smooth, high carbonation, light body.

O. Big time. The fruit is very pronounced. Lots of flavor and very sour, not sweet or syrupy. I favor this over the Kriek or LP Kriek. Very good. As with the other beers from this wonderful brewery, this stands atop all others. Very subtle, well balanced, well crafted. I would go out of my way to have this again, and again. If you could rate the label, it would get a 6.0 - there are boobs on the label.
