Cantillon Mamouche

Appearance: orange, some good lacing, and a small head.

Smell: sweet floral notes along with a light hop and fresh grapefruit.

Taste: sour grapefruit, light floralness, and a bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium and smooth.

This is a very nice sour. Perfect for warm days. Don't pass it up if you like sours.

75cl bottle, bottled 07 June 2012. Thank you Eduardo for this bottle. Poured into a Cantillon sherry glass today, 10/4/2013. Split this bottle into four pours.

Review #275.

Pours a beautiful, hazy light golden colour with a nice, effervescent and fluffy white head with very good retention (for Cantillon). Small bits of lacing persist as I swirl the beer in the glass. Very nice, refreshing appearance.

Smells so unique. Its incredibly floral. I can't get over how floral the nose is; there is also a very nice earthy presence with some citric acidity remniscent of lemon. A bit of oak. It all comes together really well into this beer that made me think I was smelling a bouquet of freshly picked flowers. I have never smelled anything like this before and I really, really enjoy it.

Drinking this makes me wonder if I'm drinking liquid flowers. It is so floral, no bitterness at all with a nice complementary lemony-acidic bite. There is a lot of that Cantillon bug in this beer as well, just in case you weren't sure you were drinking a Cantillon. Still can't get over how floral this beer is; even floral-hop heavy IPAs like Two Hearted don't come anywhere near close. Of course, these beers don't use elderflowers, but thats not the point. Totally unique flavour profile, very well executed.

Mouthfeel is a nice medium bodied, well-carbonated and creamy. So incredibly refreshing and drinkable. Nice acidity that isn't overwhelming but is very complementary to the floral aspects.

I love this beer. I can see why some people hate it, but I absolutely love it. It is very unique and masterfully executed. It made the Cantillon Iris next to it seem like such an uninteresting, bitter lambic. Eduardo, can you please send me another bottle?
