A very minor head, but good for this style. Slightly hazed. Strawlike color, almost like pear juice.

Smells of lactic acid, citrus, slightly oakey.

Taste tickles the nose. Lots of massive lambic flavors with a touch of sweeness towards the end from the grapes. Overall dry, slightly cloying. Not as much muscat as I was hoping.

Mouthfull is flat and muted, not much of a hint from the carbonation. I like it for this style though.

Where do you knock this beer? Looks better than Fou, smells incredible; best M out of any Cantillon that I have had.

A- Perfect musky hazy golden. Perfect medium lacing that sticks around. Very cloudy looking, but that does not come off too much in the taste.

S- Acid funk>white grapes acidity>musky earthiness. By no means is this lacking in top notch Belgian funk. It is there for sure. The acid funk is more of a combination with the fruit and bacteria doing there work. The white wine grapes show up big to give this beer an identity. The musky earthiness makes me happy and reminds me of Cantillon and 3F.

T- Follows the nose to a T. One thing to be noted here is that the taste is a bit muted compared with the nose, but it comes off sooo smooth and soooo fck balanced. Top notch. The taste does go away quicker than a Fou or Saint Lam.

M- This was really hard not to give it a 5. Almost as smooth as Framboos if we are talking fruit lambics. Almost comes off as a watery pureee of fruit. Creamy, thick; very very nice!

O- I think for the rotatings I would go Saint Lam>Viggy>Fou for the big guns. This beer was better than I thought it was going to be. I have a few more to see if I get variance.

I acquired a 750 from a craigslist cellar clearing... the beer corked and popped with little to no carbonation... the smell of funky musty grapes and oak emanate from the cork...pours very golden yellow with some funky grape peel smells coming off the lightly carbonated body....go in for the taste and it is a of a fine oak aged grape juices very wet and juicy on the palate funk and slight tartness nothing too sour...the finish is dry but the juiciness of the grapes is present in the 2013 bottle...Absolutely a beautiful introduction to the Cantillon Brewery.
