Huge thanks to danieelol for sharing. 375mL bottle split 4 ways. Reviewed from notes.
Gorgeous crimson with a surprisingly resilient small white head which picks up some of the colouring from the beer. Abates to a collar. Looks lovely.
Nose shows delightfully honed acidity. Surprisingly modest blueberry but beautiful integration. Lightly musty, musky and tannic.
The base Cantillon gueuze is quite conspicuous. Blueberry is again mellow but seamlessly integrated. Base gueuze notes of jalapeno and lemon are well represented.
Assertive sourness but definitely much reduced compared with most other Loons. Mild tannins. Satisfying and great drinkability.
Only had about 3 oz which probably biases my rating downwards, as this seemed uncharacteristically subtle and restrained (for Cantillon), the sort of beer that takes a bit more volume to deconstruct.
