750ml bottled on November 21, 2012

Appearance: Pours a dark ruby red color with hints of purple. Small, light pink head which dissipates to a thin collar and leaves little to no lacing.

Smell: Musty basement, with some barnyard funk. Notes of sour cherry, red grape, and lemon, vinegar.

Taste: Lemon acidity, grape skin, oak, more barnyard funk, creamy lactic sourness, green apple. Sourness is medium.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied. Medium/low carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall: Another great lambic from Cantillon. Not mindblowing, but definitely worth seeking out.

Poured a clear strawberry red with a light white head.

The nose is dominated by tart lacto along with a touch of ripe fruit.

The flavor is full of a crisp clean tartness along with an underlying bit of dark fruit

The mouthfeel is very tart and dry.

Solid classic sour.

2011 vintage poured into a Duvel art glass.

A-Pours hazy brilliant red of shade with a tight, thin white head. Head quickly dissipates and doesn’t leave any lacing.

S-Nose is grape, oak, some band aid (this might be because I didn’t wash my glass from the last beer), lemon, and must.

T-The flavor is where Lamnivus shines. It’s balance between the lemon and grape is superb, they complement each other perfectly. In addition, Lamnivus has some nice mineral characters as well as a good amount of must.

M-Light mouthfeel, moderate acidity, prickly carbonation, and a nice enduring finish.

O-One of the best fruit lambics around, I’m hard pressed to name many I would take over this. Really wish bottles weren’t so hard to come by.
