2009 bottle poured into a dyno glass and split amongst friends at Perennial before the SdB Release.

A - Cloudy off-redish pink color with a sizable white foam head that lingers. The liquid actually started permeating through the cork and was worried when I opened this. But the appearance was menacing.

S - This started with an off-putting nose, but once it warmed up a bit it started to shine. Nose include grape notes, oak, lemon and lactic. These smells did not come out until it warmed.

T - Taste is the best I have had from Cantillon so far. Tart notes that aren't overpowering which allow the merlot grapes shine. Really smooth and full of flavor for being 5 years old.

M - A little creamier and smoother than others maybe because of the age. But this has been hands down the best mouthfeel I've had from a Loon

O - Really glad I have a 2010 to visit soon and would love to try older vintages of this

Bottled Oct. 18, 2011, Best Before Oct. 2014

A - Pours a purplish/ruby-red colored body with a light pink/eggshell head that dissipates in seconds.

S - Vinous, funky, acid, tartness, smashed grapes and oak.

T - The tartness/sour aspect of the beer really plays well with the slightly sweetness of the grapes. There's an oak funkiness to it that encompasses all.

M - Light bodied and full carbonation.

O - Very complex and well balanced with the funk, oak and grapes in this beer.
