On cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. My first stop upon arrival in Belgium. This actually happened.
To say this beer is gorgeous is an understatement. A stunning ruby hue that sits underneath an everlasting pillow of lavender foam (picture forthcoming).
The smell is wonderful and inviting, with that distinguishable and inimitable cantillon scent. Lots of fresh cherries lead the way, with additional notes of yeast, tartness, funk.
The flavor takes it up a notch. Sweet and sour cherries. So fresh and delicious. Just teeming with cherries and cherry juice. Amazing.
The mouthfeel is one of the best I have ever experienced in a beer of any style. Creamy and silky smooth. Each sip lingers on the palate for several minutes.
I only made it to this establishment once, but I stayed for several hours and was able to enjoy a few pours of this. Well worth the trip. Cantillon is my favorite brewery, and this beer was well worth the effort.

On draft - served in a Cantillon tulip
Enjoyed at Chez Moeder Lambic Sint-Gilles in early June 2012.
A: Deep red. 2.5+ (frothy pink) fingernail head.
S: Smells of cherry tartness and touch of sweetness. Soft, dry funk as well with touch of oak. Heavenly!
T: Unripe cherry mostly here, but a nice touch of mild (fresh fruit - strawberry + raspberry) sweetness too. Soft oak with classic Cantillon funk and must. This beer is very dry, but oh so enjoyable. Mellow, smooth, and very refreshing!
M: Medium bodied with loads of carbonation. Perfect!
O: Nice, smooth, and very easy to enjoy! another superb beer from Jean and well worth the trip to Moeder Lambic.

On tap at Moeder Lambic. Pour is transparent ruby red with a dark pink head and tight bubbles the sit forever. The nose is very singular, huge cherries and little else. Light dusty notes try to hit you up front but are faded by huge ripe cherries. The taste has a bit more, notes of oak and a faint dustiness. These flavors are again overpowered by a huge ripe cherry and moderate sourness. The body is light and pretty soft on the palate with a lively prickly carbnatoin throughout and a rather dry finish. Very tasty and easy to drink but a touch singular.
