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.
