A-Cloudy deep ruby read, one finger pink head.

S-Grapes, fruit, more grapes, oak, mild funk.

T-Starts with a nice funk and then proceeds to be very fruity, grapes very wine like, tad bit of oak.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation but crisp.

O-An amazing beer, balance is where it should be, maybe it could be more sour but you can still taste this beer a day after having.

Served in a tumbler.

What awesome timing, having a grape-imbued lambic while standing next to a wine connoisseur. Regardless, this stuff pours a lightly-hazy fuchsia topped by over a finger of pink-ish foam. The nose comprises tart blue raspberry, light sour cherry, sour grape, a hint of grapefruit zest, and a light smattering of funk. The taste brings in more of the same, with everything showing off some powerful sour chops. This is kept in partial check, though, by the funk, which, though relatively mild in its individual expression, also blends in nicely with its acidic surroundings. The grape character is pronounced, but not overt. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, sticky finish. Overall, another damn fine fruited lambic from Cantillon, one of the highlights of a night that included quite a few ridiculous sours of various styles. And I'm happy to say that the aforementioned wine aficionado was also impressed by this offering. I was not surprised.
