Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Cantillon tuilp glass. Purchased in Wakefield, RI. 2013 vintage bottled January 28, 2013.
Appearance - Pours a hazy amber body with a thick fluffy white head that reduces slowly.. leaves some lacing. The head sticks around for a while.
Smell - Very unique.. I've never got hop notes from a Belgian sour but this one emanates aromas of pine and resin, combined with some more traditional Lambic aromas of funk, sour lemons, white wine, citrus, and earthyness.
T- Pretty sour upfront, lemon juice and lactic acid, some spiciness and funky yeast. This gives way to a piney, resinous, floral flavor reminiscent of faded hops in an old IPA. The finish is both slightly bitter and citrusy, citrus rind.
M- Medium-light mouthfeel. Medium-high carbonation. Easy drinker.
Was sitting on this for over a year and it delivered. Very unique, complex, and flavorful. Another great from Cantillon.
