look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.75

Served in a footed glass at the Mikkeller bar in SF. From notes. Reviewed 10 August 2013.

A: Hazy translucent brown-gold-hay.

S: Generic lambic, but a little sweet. Funky. Wait, I was wrong. The more I sniff, the more dizzying and intoxicating it becomes.

T: Oh wow. This is good. Tart and fruity. Chill and relaxed. Perhaps one of the best sours I've tasted. I like the grapes, I like the funk. I love this beer.

M: Thin, tart, and bright.

O: Highly recommended. Would love to have again. Exceptional.

Serving type: on-tap

Sampled from a 750ml bottle at Moder Lambic. Beautifully presented in a wicker basket and carefully poured by the waiter. Golden and clear with a small white head. Aroma is white grapes. Flavor follows. Very crisp and clean with a firm bite that doesn't overpower. Dry but with the perception of a mild sweetness. A fine feel with a medium yet firm carbonation. This is a fantastic beer with outstanding wine influences.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Cantillon tulip glass. Purchased in Wakefield, RI.

A- Pours a hazy dull orange-hay colored body with a fast moving, fizzy white head that rises quickly and reduces just as quickly. Lots of fast moving carbonation. No lacing.

S- Smells pretty acidic, particularly citrusy with aromas of oranges, funky yeast, lemon peel, hay, and a musty, wet wood aroma in the background. Malt is definitely present. The last few sips produce a cheesy aroma.

T- The second it hits your tongue, Vigneronne's wild yeast punches you in the taste buds with a sour burst of lemon juice, tart grapes, sour apple, and orange juice. The follow through is woody, musty, and full of citrus rind, but the sharp tart fruit notes really take center stage here. Very forward with the brett and quite tasty. Aftertaste is tart and very dry.

M- Super crisp and refreshing. I downed the first glass in under a minute because it is that drinkable and thirst quenching.

This was my second Cantillon beer, and I have to say that it also lived up the the hype. The puckering tartness works perfectly here. Extremely balanced. Maybe a little less complex than other sours I've tried, but nonetheless world class.
