look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. This was bottled on June 26, 2013. Served at cellar temperature.

Appearance: Pours a translucent (but nearly opaque) honey-rose color and leaves a finger of white head which fizzles away quickly to nothing.

Smell: Very interesting/different. Funky/floral/vegetabley/peppers (both hot and sweet)/pollen. A unique aroma. The floral notes, which are hidden behind the big vegetable/pepper smell is really nice. As it warms, a green pepper smell becomes quite pronounced.

Taste: Actually hits a lot of the same notes as the aroma, but more subtle (luckily). Flower stems, flower blossoms, lemon zest, peppercorn, still has a lot of pepper : green in particular, a hint of hot peppers though (without the spice). Only a bit sour. Definitely unique.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation, although for some reason it feels a bit flatter than it is. Light to medium body. Pretty dry all the way through.

Overall: Way different than I could have expected. The flavor is very plant influenced, and it is unlike any beverage I've consumed. Definitely not my favorite Cantillon, but is very interesting and worth a try.
