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."

750ml bottled 20 February 2012 and drank 28 December 2012.

Poured into a Cantillon tulip presenting a slightly hazy orange beer with not much of an off white head that eventually forms a ring of foam around the edge.

The aroma brings forth lemon, flowers, grass, and a nice musty funk.

On the first sip is a jowl shocking punch of tartness. After the initial shock the sour level on this is actually not too great. It has a good body and carbonation level. Lemon and white wine vinousness abound in this. The funk and oak fall in right behind. Touch of bitterness at the end.

This is a nice lambic to relax and sip on. Highly enjoyable like all Cantillon beers tend to be.
