75cl bottle into a Deschutes teku glass. Fresh bottle... 9/11/13 bottling date.

Pours a bright ruby red with a nice but not overly gushing head and a ton of sparkling bubbles. Definitely not overcarbonated. Smell is of tart raspberries, very aromatic. The taste starts out subtly tart but as you go through more and more of the beer this sourness builds up and becomes lip puckering. Raspberries are definitely very prevalent and of course you still get that traditional Cantillon funk on the back end. Mild body...mild carbonation.

Overall a terrific, funky fruit lambic from Cantillon! Im glad i had this fresh as it was very intense! i think it would lose this intensity if it aged.

Bottle into snifter, at Open Baladin, Rome

Ruby red/amber with 2 finger carbonated white head

Smell: raspberries, strawberries, citric, subtle earthiness, funky belgian yeast

Taste: not overly fruity, a pleasant combination of bitternes, not quite ripe fruit, and plenty of sourness on the aftertaste. Typical belgian yeast backbone, funky and sweet. Also some subtle oak notes mid palate that come out once warmed.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied high carbonation

Overall: one of the best lambics i've had, some can be too sour or fruity but this one blends everything perfectly.
