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 a light brown/amber, with a pretty generous head.

Smell is dominated by funk. Smells sour. Sour grapes.

Taste is sour. Vinegar upfront, fades to some funky flavor, not sure how to describe it. There's not a huge aftertaste. Starts big and ends pretty quickly. Interesting flavor.

Mouthfeel is a little carbonated, nice and bubbly and coats the mouth pretty well. Best feature of this beer.

Overall, underwhelming for me. My least favorite Cantillon to date, although it's still pretty tasty.
