2007 Vintage - 375ml bottle poured into my Duvel tulip...
Pours a hazy dark orange, bordering on light brown...even when poured carefully there was a large amount of light, puffy white head, like 5 fingers worth...
Smell is very tart as expected, vinegar, some sour citrus fruits with a bit of earthy Cantillon funk going on...
Taste is extremely puckering at first until you kind of get acclimated to the beer. Sour fruits, some barnyard and earthy qualities, a bit of oak...
Tart and dry, medium bodied with great carbonation levels. Good amount of malt makes this beer smooth in spite of the heavy drying character...
Have enjoyed every Cantillon beer I have sampled, as with the others, 375ml is a large enough serving for me. Would like to revisit this one in the future...
