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.
Seriously.

750ml bottle - Cantillon

2012 vintage

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.
