4.78/5 rDev +5.5%
2009 bottle poured into a dyno glass and split amongst friends at Perennial before the SdB Release.
A - Cloudy off-redish pink color with a sizable white foam head that lingers. The liquid actually started permeating through the cork and was worried when I opened this. But the appearance was menacing.
S - This started with an off-putting nose, but once it warmed up a bit it started to shine. Nose include grape notes, oak, lemon and lactic. These smells did not come out until it warmed.
T - Taste is the best I have had from Cantillon so far. Tart notes that aren't overpowering which allow the merlot grapes shine. Really smooth and full of flavor for being 5 years old.
M - A little creamier and smoother than others maybe because of the age. But this has been hands down the best mouthfeel I've had from a Loon
O - Really glad I have a 2010 to visit soon and would love to try older vintages of this

4.5/5 rDev -0.7%
Bottled Oct. 18, 2011, Best Before Oct. 2014
A - Pours a purplish/ruby-red colored body with a light pink/eggshell head that dissipates in seconds.
S - Vinous, funky, acid, tartness, smashed grapes and oak.
T - The tartness/sour aspect of the beer really plays well with the slightly sweetness of the grapes. There's an oak funkiness to it that encompasses all.
M - Light bodied and full carbonation.
O - Very complex and well balanced with the funk, oak and grapes in this beer.
