look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: rosy, thin pink head around the edges, some patches of lace, low visible carbonation.

S: extreme funk, smells like fungi, kind of grosses me out, but there's also wine grapes. There's something about it that makes me a little sick, like rotten meat.

T: taste is much more subtle, nice grape skin, green olives, but also that signature Cantillon yeast. White wine, or maybe even rosé.

M: light-bodied, medium carbonation is well balanced to the taste.

O: Not the best I've had (especially from Cantillon) but still good, reminds me of Mediterranean food, like tapenade or putanesca sauce. Smell was really off-putting, I'm wondering if this bottle was infected.

8oz snifter at Belmont Station Nov. 17th

A: This could almost pass for a glass of wine (minus the carbonation). Beautiful ruby color, with a very thin pinkish head.

S: Rustic old wood aroma, with a definite wine backbone. Ripe cheese and grape mash. Love the classic funk.

T: Very similar to the nose. Slight sweetness up front with charred oak and fruit in the back. This is one of the greats! Great balance of sweet and sour.

M: Very light with just a whisper of carbonation.

O: Everyone should have the opportunity to experience this wonderful creation. This is what other Lambics want to taste like.
