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."

Thanks to duffextracold for bringing this up from the cellar. 2007 bottle.

Dark gold with a pristine white head. Great retention for a sour. Smells like Sweet Tarts, yellow grapefruit and must. Tastes like it smells with a litte extra straw, hayloft in there.

It's Cantillion. You could open ferment a bucket of spit in that brewhouse and it would be great.
