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.

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.
