Bottle at 3 penny taproom to hfs sniffer
A: a red plum color that I can best describe as Scarlett with a thin White lacing it is semi cloudy but not near opaque with no floaters
S:it's cleaner then I expected it to smell not a whole lot of funk though its there the grape must definitely comes out a very balanced smell
T:wow this is where this bee really takes the cake it is sweet sour and tart up front there is lot of fruit flavor of grapes and green apple it lasts all throughout the finish which is also very sweet
M: smooth and crisp goes down very easily lots of sweet but not overpowering the bubblyiness makes this really drinkable
O: probably the best sour I've ever had a balance d great sour/tart flavor with fruit grape and a crisp bubbly really drinkable feel I understand why cantillon is number one

My only bottle split with friends two nights ago before leaving on a very long road trip. Notes taken during consumption.

A- Deep muddy purple pink hue with a small fizzy head that falls from one finger to nothing. I would say retention is low-minimal for the style. No lace or legs but the brew itself has a very beautiful color.
S- Fresh cantillon bug produced funk blend is strong with added Merlot grapes that are quite massive. Notes of oak, lemon, lactic and acetic, most vinous of Cantillon for me.
T- Follows the nose very closely with a massive grape vinous feel that brings stems and all. This is above the classic Cantillon funk blend, acetic and lactic, some cherry brett basement barnyard.
MF- Dried out light bodied with high end carbonation bringing some fizz to the palate but key to support the flavors. Finishes with a medium sourness not quite as high as other Cantillon.
Vinous, Merlot grape fruit bomb with the classic Cantillon Gueuze feel. It blends together well and creates a very refreshing, hybrid style beverage between beer and wine.
