750ml, bottled 11/2011, into a Cantillon flute.

A: Pours a clearish straw color with a good white head.

S: Lots of slightly juicy and sweet white grapes, musty sourness, hay, a bit of pleasant cheesy funk.

T: Very fruity in the taste as well, with plenty of white grape notes that give an almost apricot-like tartness to the beer. Lactic, tart grape skin, moderately puckering acidity.

M Light-bodied with slight carbonation.

O: This tastes great. St. Lamvinus is more complex, but the fruit character in this is really cool.

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

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow color. Not a ton of carbonation in this beer, or head. What head there is is pure white and reduces to a small ring around the edges of the glass.

Smell: Pale fruit scents - apples and white grapes - come to mind. Quite a bit of tartness and sour shows up, but overall a pretty juicy smell for a Cantillon.

Taste: Some pale fruit flavors show up front, but mostly just lemon tartness and sour notes. Much drier with less fruit notes than are on the nose. Good.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied, low carbonation, probably a bit too low for the style. Overall though, another nice sour from cantillon.

2011 750.

Appearance. Pours a pretty much clear apple-juice gold with a thin white head.

Smell. Sour lemons, earthy and musty funk, some sweet green and red apples, and just a bit of white wine.

Taste. Sour lemon juice, a little white wine again adding just a touch of sweetness. Not getting much else, but it's very nice.

Mouthfeel. Just above light in body, low carbonation. Seems just a little bit thin.

Overall. Not my favorite of the Cantillon I've tried, but love the style and could drink this all the time.
