Sharing this special beer with my special lady...and Kevin ;)
2012 bottling (bottle date is 11/21/12, ABV is 5%)

Pour is magenta red that gets darker and murkier with each pour. Pink head becomes a thick ring. Nice colors.

Smell is great, berry and red grape is somewhat tame but there at a good and noticeable level. Lemon, feety funk and oak, nice mixture overall.

The fruit in the taste is lighter, but mostly gives off notes of tart red and green grapes and lemons. Funk, farmy earthiness, farm and oak are a bit more powerful but it is all kept at a nicely subtle level, making this more easy-drinking than your average Cantillon.

Smooth and well-carbonated, nice amount of puckering tartness while still remaining very drinkable.

The first time I had this I wasn't as impressed, it comes off as maybe a bit too subtle, but this really is one of better Cantillons I've had. Love the drinkability and the fruit/funk balance.
