4.46/5  rDev -1.5%

Poured from a 25 oz bottle into a Cantillon tulip glass. Purchased at Wakefield Liquors in Wakefield, RI. Opened while on vacation in North Conway, NH!

A- Pours a hazy, raspberry colored body with a 2 finger, fizzy, light cherry colored head that reduces really quickly and leaves no lacing or retention.

S- Tart sour grapes, funky barnyard, red wine, cherries, citric acid, acetic acid, oak, and an old mustiness that blends very nicely with these aromas.

T- Starts off pretty tart, but not sour, with dry fruity notes, specifically grapes, cherry skins, and citrus rind. The follow through is subtly funky with fermented fruit and oak, wine barrel notes. The finish is woody and tart. Very nice

M- High carbonation, refreshing and quenching.

St. Lamvinus was awesome but I wasn't expecting anything less of this Cantillon masterpiece. Glad I got to try it, can't wait to try the other one in my cellar in a couple decades ;)

Beer pours ruby read and is brilliant. A slight head soon disappears after the beer has been poured.

Aroma is of fruit and funk. Not incredibly complicated and it is very acetic in aroma.

The beer has notes of grapes and fruit. It is very effervescent and it tickles your tongue.

Mouthfeel is typical for a sour beer.

Overall a tasty beer, the acidity is sharp and like vinegar and the funk really increases as it warms. Crisp, Acidic, Fruity, Brite.

2010 Bottle

A - Bright red with a burgundy red color. Clear warm body that looks like liquor. White head that sits on the edges

S - Tart lambic with gueuze like sourness, light blue cheese funk, red wine, tannis, and grape skins

T - Tart lemon peel and lambic up front. Blue cheese, funk and really light red wine presence in the middle. Tart cherry near the back end with war head tartness and light oak to it

M - Tart with a dry finish to it with a slight juiciness from the wine.

O - This is another solid lambic from Cantillon but it's not my favorite one. The wine is there and add some nice presence but it is a bit overdrawn but the tartness and is lacking on the funk. All of that said it is still great just not one of my favorite.
