2009 vintage sampled 2013 at Cantillion

APP - almost clear

AROMA - light, very refined barnyard, low tartness, quite restrained

FLAVOR - light notes of rose and ginger, clover, low background horse blanket, slight mineral finish

MF- extremely soft acidity, super smooth

OVERALL - Sublime. Super cohesive, aging mellows this beer quite a bit

January 1st, 2016 - Also kicking off 2016 is a beer from almost a decade ago: the 2007 Cantillon Lou Pepe. Our assumption is that this is perhaps a little long in the tooth, even for a mythically legendary beer like this, but I have high hopes and great trust in the Belgian craftsmen who have honed this recipe through generations. And it seems that my trust was well allocated, because the smell is absolutely beautiful. Chocolate, cream and with a slight fruity sweetness, even the few ounces at the bottom of my glass unfurl up and out and indulge my olfactory with incredible grace and strength. But the taste is spicier, and while it borrows some of the chocolate from the nose, it expresses more like a mole with that kick. Absolutely fascinating, and delicious, this has aged quite wonderfully.
