A: Murky raspberry color, with a thin layer of head that dissipates into a tiny layer of bubbles, leaving minimal, foamy lacing.
S: Sour yet sweet, with a distinct barnyard scent. Lots of berries and some fresh herbs, with some other fruits also making an entrance (grapes, dark cherries).
T: A truly great lambic. Lots of berries and grapes, with an acidic finish. Very tangy and funky. Lots of great lambic character. A touch of merlot/bordeaux on the aftertaste, but not as much as I expected.
M: Soft and slightly chewy. Medium bodied. Acidity provides a nice, mid-palate tingle, but it finishes clean.
D: As it warms, it only gets better. I could drink this forever.

My only bottle split with friends two nights ago before leaving on a very long road trip. Notes taken during consumption.
Cantillon saint lamvinus nov 21 2012
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.
