Appearance: grapefruit colored, small head, and some good lacing.
Smell: nice sour fruit.
Taste: nice lambic sourness with a light fruit finish. 4
Mouthfeel: medium-heavy sourness.
This is a good sour. The potent nature of it makes it hard to admire all of the complexity inside it.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.
Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one.
2012 vintage that is apparently a rebrew of the 2008 vintage.
Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour and tart fruit and rhubarb flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with an interesting rhubarb presence that comes through slightly better in the flavor.

Keg in Earl of Essex, Sept 2012. Colour is clear amber, no head, some oiliness on the surface. Nose is burnt lambic yeasty, rhubarb, sour yeast. Taste is sour green apples, fresh rhubarb, cheesy burnt lambic, sour green fruit. Finish is tongue curling sour and some nice rhubarb fruit.

This was delicious. The rhubarb flavor was spot on-- I need to hit the minimum character requirement so I can Mark this beer as "had."
It seems like a glitch in the programing because I can't jist mark this as "had," so I I'll tell whoever reads this that this beer was pretty fucming spectacular.
Sadly it is not available. Tough shit. You missed out.

750ml bottle - Cantillon
Served in Cantillon wine-style glass. Bright orange body with a white foam ring. It's definitely a tart one - there are fruity notes coming from the Rhubarb, but in a beer of this nature, you'd have to have an expert palate to be able to identify that without knowing it was included. Some strange vegetable notes in the finish. Some good things here, some not so great. Glad to tick it, but least impressive of all of the bottles we had.
