750 ml corked and capped bottle served in a Zwanze Day 2012 flute. 2011 cork. Thanks to kevanb for sharing.

A: Pours a hazy pinkish and grapefruit-like color combination with an off-white pinkish head forming on the pour.

S: A ton of Cantillon funk, light cheesy aspects with a nice dark grape tartness. Nice red wine tannins going on as well.

T: Big sourness up front. Grapey, red wine drying tannin. Oaky, with a light sweetness on the finish. Not as funky as the nose, but it is underlying throughout. Acidic as well.

M: Enamel stripping, bubbly and lively carbonation with a light body.

O: Very delicious. Sour, funky and really drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

magic. pours raspberry pinky color, a little hazy, with a finger or more of tiny white bubbles stacked together. very very puckery sour nose, lambic funky, plenty of yeast, mouth watering aromas. i smell grape must in there with the tart lemon acidity. the flavor is true to the nose, with the sourness being every bit as intense. almost hurts the jaw its so sour. fruit provides more flavor than sweetness, and this may be the best grape or wine based beer out there. its dryish in the finish, but still mouth watering at the same time. brightly carbonated, very active, which helps to cut through some of the acidity, which is huge. the body is very light, but i dont think id feel good if i drank a whole 750ml bottle of this on my own. the acidity and sourness would turn the stomach. overall though this is awesome stuff from cantillon, one of my favorites ive had from them. the legend grows for me...
