2012 Bottle/Cork Date, 750mL.
This beer has zero carbonation, which takes a bit to get used to.
My first glass I was very un-impressed. With no carb, the beer just lies flat in the mouth and the flavors aren't able to diffuse throughout. Thought the funk and sour was very muted and there wasn't much else going on.
HOWEVER, for my next 2 glasses I let the beer warm considerably (almost room temp). This really opened up some nice barnyard and cheese funk. The lemony sour is subtle, but rounds out the flavors decently. Some oak and slightly dry.
Overall, this beer is quite good with the proper expectations and letting it warm considerably. It is not nearly the same sour/funk experience as the other Cantillons I've had, but still a good quality beer if you're into the style.
