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."

'13 750ml into a CS snifter.

A- Beautiful golden/cider color. Minimal head with pretty large lacing for this style.

S- Acetone, granny smith apple, gueuze funk (I know, unblended...), barnyard funk/horseblanket (never smelled one, but going with the flow)

T- Such a light and delightful lambic. As for straight lambic unblended, I can't imagine it gets better than this. Glorious. So happy I pulled the trigger to open this one!

M- Medium to medium/light body for the style. Nice amount of carb follows down throat.

O- What a treat. This is one of Cantillon's least hard to acquire lambics, but I believe it is one of the purest beers/lambic that I have ever had.
