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.

Bottled 2010

A: pours a beautiful deep rose read with a finger of transient pink foam and brilliant clarity. No lace. Beautiful beer. Normally, some of the characteristics here would take away, but this appearance is simply stunning. Great looking beer.
S: Mmmmm. Spicy blend of yeast, dry sour, farm funk (the most I've smelled in a cantillon), lots of lacto. Nice.
T: Dry, puckering, tart and fruity. The fruit tone is really surprising provided the time in bottle. Plenty of signature Cantillon sour puckering flavors. Hints of white vinegar. Really nice.
M: Thin, moderately low carbonation allows for the tannic dryness in the beer to shine. Make me water and want more.
O: I really, really enjoyed this beer, but I think I might prefer some of the others from the crew there in Brussels to this one.
