Easy top 20 beer to date for me. Poured cold into balloon glass. Relatively clear red color with smell of grape and wine. Taste follows the nose with a sweet and sour combo that is so smooth yet you get big merlot flavors with a subtle barrel Oakiness and tang. Not too sour and not too sweet. Feel is crazy impressive with a aggressive carb but not frothy and very smooth

A: A slightly hazy raspberry color bordering on maroon with a healthy burst of head that eventually dissipates into a wisp.

S: Berries, red grapes left in the sun, and the almost cheesy Cantillon yeast funk.

T: Tart but not sour. Crisp and dry upfront followed by a wave of fruit that is initially more berry than grape but becomes more vinous in the finish. The aftertaste is a bold, funky rot but not nearly as unpleasant as that sounds. Again, there's a mild cheesy taste.

M: Thin and dry in the mouthfeel but bold in flavor.

O: This definitely grew on me as I made my way through the bottle. Not knowing quite what to expect I was perhaps underwhelmed or just unappreciative at first but as I drank more the balanced complexity became more apparent. Saint Lamvinus is certainly worthy of its stellar reputation.
