Thanks to egrace84 for sharing this bottle!

Vintage 2010.

Poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: medium purple bodied beer with a reddish hue. 2 fingers of white head with a purplish tint. Drops down to a a thin cap and eventually no head.

Smell: Mildly tart grapes. Moderately funky and its that trademark cantillion funk. Simple yet awesome nose on this beer!

Taste: Funk forward with a mild almost moderate sourness. I would say about a 3.75 - 4 out of 10. Nice red grape flavor without tasting like a wine. I think that the beer has just the right ratio of funkiness to fruity flavors of red grapes. Very nice!

Mouthfeel: On the high end of a light bodied beer; almost medium bodied. Carbonation is on the low end of moderate. Really smooth drinking sour. Just a touch on dryness that right where it should be.

Overall: This is the probably the best grape sour that I have drank. I was very pleasantly surprised by this beer.

Bottle courtesy of MrKennedy and alos shared with Spicelab

A - moderate deep raspberry-juice pink, effervescent head.

S - tart, funk

T - really quite sour and puckering on first taste, but once the taste buds settled. back into Cantillon-std sourness. Then add hints of tinned raspberries (without their sweetness) into a complex vinous palate.

M - lively, zesty, refreshing.

O - yep, another great Cantillon. Difficult to write about these, similar in so many ways. And I know the bottle states serve warmer, but I prefer colder...
