4.25/5 rDev -6%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
Bottled in 2009.
A: Pours a rather dark burgandy/brown color with significant haze and sediment, even when decanted. Has more of a head than I expected.
S: Ridiculously intense compared to other cantillon. Starts off extremely funky/vinegary. The only word I can use to describe this smell is vomit. Also has woody/spicy characteristics. I like my beers funky/sour. However, this nose is too much.
T: OK, the taste is significantly better than the nose. Amazingly complex flavor featuring strong oak, strong funkiness, vinuous wine flavors, tart cherries, red grapes, balsamic vinegar, and much more. Extremely dry.
M: Dry, tannic, great carbonation, relatively heavy body with a wine-like feel.
D: The nose hurts drinkability a bit. However, the taste and mouthfeel really make up for it. I could definilty do a whole 750 or two no problem.
