2011 Vintage 750ml, poured into a Cantillon tumbler. Review #200.
It pours a lovely apricot-orangey-peach color, very murky, even with a slow pour. Lots of bubbles racing around the glass. A nice offwhite head races up the glass but recedes just as quickly leaving no lacing or head retention. The aroma is fantastic, tons of fresh juicy apricot, peach fuzz, vinegar, funk and yeast. The fruit character of the aroma is just outstanding and perfectly inviting. The flavors are superb, the apricot flavors are super nice and juicy, tart, not overly sour. A little more acidic than I'd like with a high presence of vinegar and funk than the nose suggested. Some woodiness is definitely present as well. The body is good, a bit sharp, but nice and playful on the tongue. Carbonation is high yet the beer remains juicy.
Verdict: Fantastic lambic from Cantillon. Probably my favorite lambic they make. I've had older vintages, which are very special, but something about the fresh fruit is just so perfect.
