on tap at the Local Option in Chicago. pours an amber orangish color with a single finger of eggshell colored head that has good retention and leaves no lacings.
aroma is acidic with a light cherry note and a base of the famous Cantillon funk. the acidic note is vinous in character and envoelops the other aromas as the brew warms a bit.
taste follows the nose with a finish of a sharp bite that carries through to the aftertaste. wonderfully funky on the palate with a farmhouse quality and a very subtle note of distant fruit. vinous in the nose and on the palate, which adds a bit of sharpness to the back end. an excellent lambic.
mouthfeel is medium bodied and perfectly balanced between funk and acidity. the sour note keeps the palate honest, while cleansing the palate upon finishing.
drinkability is excellent. a tasty mix of sour and funk, with a very drinkable aura and a finish that cleanses the palate. a bit less sour than the Classic Gueuze, but just as drinkable. there is a subtle note of cherry and a touch of pear as the brew warms a bit, giving it some complexity, but in the end it takes a back seat to the funk. cheers!

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.
