Lambic - Unblended |  5.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

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."

A: A kind of ruby gold... or amber orange? The head from my bottle fizzles up to about a finger then sizzled away to lacing pretty quickly.

S: Funky, earthy, lemon citrus, and woody. Tart apple skins?

T: That old funk taste - the oak barrel is noticable and combines with the earthiness of the hops. Its age is obvious, in a good way. Lemon bitterness and apple cider vinegar. The additional dry hopping makes this a unique Cantillon despite its familiarity in many senses.

M: Gentle and fine carbonation, light, crisp and dry.

O: Familiar yet different, I really enjoyed this beer. My girlfriend took a sip and had a puzzled look while stating "kind of tastes like an IPA?"... the hops really makes this interesting and I'm glad for the variety, though it doesn't make it necessarily better than other Cantillons. I really enjoyed it, but I'd go for a Rose or Kriek first.
