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."

Pours amber with a large head.
Nose shows spicy notes, lemon rind, elderflower, peaches, some funk and a hint of catnip.
Very acidic flavours. Some lemon pith in addition to the rind providing some astringency along with some more peach and floral notes.
Nice high carbonation.

2013 vintage. Good taste of oak. Very acidulated. Long floral bitterness. Not my favorite from Cantillon but very drinkable
