Pours a golden cloudy hue. Musty grape aroma. This is unlike any other Cantillon that I've ever had. Really interesting textures and flavors. There's some bright white grape. Only a little of that farm funk. It's a little dry. There's some sweet red pepper in there. A really interesting beer, but I don't know if it is my favorite lambic.

Thin coating across the surface of pure white foam, just about settles in as it evaporates, the lacing forms very broad and deep patches which disappear from the glass sides as much as slide down below. A horde of active bubbles appear throughout the darker coppery gold color, more orange hue than yellow, adequate clarity, neither really hazy nor transparently clean. Freshly mown lawn grass, green straw, wheat chaff, chamomile and wet cellar dirt and stone mark the nose at first, strong sour vinous quality as well, quieter apricot pits and green melon rinds, the yeastiness flits in and out due to its sour profile, overall smells like a lot of stuff you’d be allergic to in springtime. Medium-bodied, the sourness sets it like stone in the mouth the carbonation at best provides tiny pinpricks on the tongue. The Muscat comes through clearly, puckering vinous nature, and the oak brings a tart toastiness which evokes more dill than any caramel or sweeter oak flavoring. Violets, hay, straw, pulped and dried oranges, chamomile, sea weed, flavors veer all over. It is not all that dry, yet it grips as if desiccating the palate. Also cleaner than expected without much mustiness. Lengthens as it warms, however, flavors stay consistent. (Bottled November 23, 2012)
