Notes/Commercial Description:
From the brewery's website: "Although it is a spontaneous fermentation beer, the Iris is very different from the Lambic. The amber colour and the bitter and slightly caramelized taste make it a complex beer."

Beer pours a cloudy light brown color with a nice white head. The carbonation level is high compared to most of the Cantillon beers that I have had.

Aroma is earthy and acidic. I can pick up a lot of acetic acid in the nose.

Wow. Sour. Very very sour. Makes your lips pucker. It is hard to pick up anything else the beer is so sour.

Mouthfell is full and acidic. It makes you run your toungue across the top of your mouth. Very nice.

Overall this beer is a giant war head. It is so sour that my lips pucker with every sip. It is suprising that there is almost no barnyard or goat in the aroma of taste. It was good but I would not call it one of the best beers that I have ever had, even in its catagory, it is just too sour.
