Poured this unique beer from a 750mL bottle.

A- The pour reveals a plum-red beer with medium carbonation that moves up the side of the glass. The off-white / slightly pink head dissipates into a nearly non-existent ring that sits on top throughout consumption.

S- There was a smell of sourness with slight fruit after tones.

T- Do not serve this beer cold! Initially, all I could taste was sourness everywhere. However, after I let the beer sit for awhile a tart fruit taste developed that made it ever so much more enjoyable.

M- Smooth with the perfect amount of carbonation. Although the tartness made my mouth pucker up at points, there was some mysterious force that kept pulling me back for more.

D- Given the tartness and the low alcohol content, I could definitely drink this beer for a while.

Overall, a very unique beer that is definitely worth a try! The acidic quality offers an interesting mix of beer and wine composition. Maybe I will let the next one sit in the cellar for awhile.

750mL at cantillon Brussels

A: Pours an absolutely beautiful clear rosy color with light pink head that leaves some lacing around glass.

S: Lots of funk with some lactic sourness, hints of grapes and earthy notes.

T: Slightly sweet and sour with lots of barnyardy funk. The grapes are a great addition to what is surely a stellar lambic by itself.

M: Nice slightly acidic tingling with moderate carbonation, finishes dry.

O: great all around, really drinkable and refreshing.
