Haven't been lucky enough to find one in NYC yet, but picked up this bottle at a shop in Bruges and brought it back to the states. Poured into a snifter.
A - A murky, cloudy tan/orange with a soapy head. Thicker than a traditional gueuze.
S - Sour, intense.
T - Sour and bitter, but not overwhelmingly so. Citrusy, like grapefruit with a hint of lemon.
M - Light body with a rich carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing.
O - A very well executed twist on the lambic style. I was fortunate enough to visit Cantillon during my trip to Belgium, and personally I prefer this beer over any of theirs as this one has a bit more intensity and a much fuller carbonation. Really wish this was easier to find in the states, I'd gladly keep a bottle or two handy for a hot summer day.
