From a 750 ml bottle into a tulip. Reviewed from notes taken on May 26, 2013.

A-It is light golden in color. The brew has more clarity than other Cantillon fruit beers, but it not as clear as the gueuze. A thin white head drops quickly to a collar.

S-The smell is musty and vaguely sweet; very vinous, like you might expect given the grape they use to make this beer. That being said, this brew still smells tart and acidic. Funk is moderate and more wet earth smelling than truly funky.

T-The taste is more tart that I would expect. There is some serious pucker power here. Some of the wine grape comes through, but the overall effect is more earthy and musty that fruity. It is complex and the fruit flavors are pretty subtle.

M-The feel is typical Cantillon, i.e., light in the body with the perfect dose of moderate, crisp carbonation.

O-This is maybe the most interesting Cantillon I tasted at the brewery, but not my favorite. The musty grape flavor just did not jive with the lambic in the same way that, for example, the apricots do in the case of Fou Foune. My criticism aside, this is still a very good beer and better than most other fruit beers out there. The acidity here would pair well with a white fish dish or salmon.
