Shared with raceway40. Poured into my Cigar City snifter.

A: Pours a beautiful ruby red color. A half finger of a pink head that dissipates quickly.

S: A strong red wine element from all of the grape elements used in this beer. Also a little bit of a funky barnyard aroma.

T: A bit sour but not excessively so. A very complex beer. the grapes are obviously a strong flavor element here. Nothing overwhelms though. This is extremely well balanced. Some notes of lemon, red wine, funk and berries all interplay together wonderfully.

M: Perfect. Carbonation is spot on. The finish is smooth and dry.

D: Fantastic. This is one of the best beers I've ever had. I now regret not buying every single bottle that sat on the shelf of my local bottle shop. If you ever have a chance to purchase this beer...yes, it's worth it.

750ml bottle poured into a stemmed Cantillon glass. Bottle 27 October 2009. Purchased October 2010 in Athens, GA for $29.99.

Pours a gorgeous red/purple. Looks like a crown jewel sitting in the glass.

A soft funky aroma dances with the red wine grapes and mild oak notes. Nothing is out of place here.

Taste is on point for a Cantillon Lambic. The sour/funky component is present, but less intense than in other Cantillon offerings. The "sour" part of the beer meets a *very* slight sweetness perfectly, with the oak giving subtle yet essential tones to this beer. This is truly a masterpiece.

This beer is well carbonated. Light bodied, yet slick. Bone dry lingering tart finish. I can't find any flaws. Far, far above average.

This beer drinks like the finest wine or champagne. A joy to behold. I am glad I made it part of my New Years Eve 2010 celebration. Pricey? Yes. But do yourself a favor and try this one if you get the chance.
