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.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #6
A- Pours a deep chardonnay golden yellow color. Has a very high wine like clarity. Small fizzy head that dissipated quickly.
S- Lots of sour apple, some vinegar, some light vanilla, good amount of oak. some white wine character in there.
T- Similar to aroma but amplified to an insane degree. Lots of tart lemon, sour apple, and vinegar. Finishes with a dry yeasty note. Has that old barn cellar thing that sours usually have.
M- Medium-light the flavor makes this a sipper.
O- This is one of the most sour beers I've had and if you're looking for something that delivers in the pucker department seek this one out. It is also somewhat too sour for me in my tastes. It's missing a bit of the subtlety that I got from Supplication. Still an amazing beer and if you want to test the limits of sour seek it out.
