4.81/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

2012 Vintage

A: Deep yellow, excellent clarity with beautiful pinpoint carbonation. As appetizing as a beer can look!

S: Damp cotton, lemon candies, wet leaves, lactic twang. Smells very familiar as a Gueuze, but there's something unique about the profile. Perfect.

T: Lemons at first, then a big wave of smooth earthy brett character. Wool. An extremely dry and sour finish even by Lambic standards. Has a slight 'coarseness' in the aftertaste, but flawless aside from that.

M: Torrential carbonation and VERY dry. High drinkability, highly refreshing, I love this beer.

So glad I finally got a chance to try Beatification. This beer blew me away as much as any Cantillon I've ever had.

A very big thanks to Mulder1010 for this and it pours a beautiful golden hazy hue with a one finger wispy head and a touch of lacing,the smell is so inviting its oak,green apples,musty funk and white grapes,the mouthfeel is medium bodied with spritzy carbonation and on taste it's just like a fine lambic you would find in Belgium with sour Granny Smith apples,oak,white grapes and finished with a nice sour tartness and overall it's a nice wild ale but Temptation is still my favourite cheers.
