4.39/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle courtesy of MrKennedy and alos shared with Spicelab

A - moderate deep raspberry-juice pink, effervescent head.

S - tart, funk

T - really quite sour and puckering on first taste, but once the taste buds settled. back into Cantillon-std sourness. Then add hints of tinned raspberries (without their sweetness) into a complex vinous palate.

M - lively, zesty, refreshing.

O - yep, another great Cantillon. Difficult to write about these, similar in so many ways. And I know the bottle states serve warmer, but I prefer colder...

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

Poured from the bottle at Churchkey DC into a snifter glass.

Deep solid cherry colored body, orb glowing, with a little hint of pink throughout. Slight pink collar and thin ring presented. Looks like a jewel.

Fantastic bouquet on the beer. Great notes of light sweetness of cherry, bright funk and dry peppery action. Good chewy sense of malt (wheat?), subtle and balanced, with a nice effervescent and clean quality. This looks like something good.

Palate comes with a great champagne crispness but a decent malt depth to carry forward. Carbonated pepper and mild sourness. Tart fruit action of red raspberry and cherry, with subtle aromatics. Tastes like dusted funky fruit in a bowl, and champagne.

Overall a subtle yeast funk character and chewy texture to match with floating funky red fruit in a champagne glass. But it's beer. It's a winner and one of the most enjoyable Cantillon beers I've had.
