Lambic Au Cabernet Franc 2016

Bottle at moeder original.

White head. Beautiful ruby raspberry color.

This one is heavy on the grapes. Lots of wine notes and tannins. A bit acidic with lemon citrus. Had other fruit flavors as well. A bit of cherry. Very typical cantillon house flavor with small similarities to st. Lam.

Lively feel to it. A fair amount of carbonation creating a bubbly feel.

A very fun beer to try, but I'd like to see what a few years would do to it. It's a bit young, but still very enjoyable.

On tap at Moeder Lambic St-Gilles during the 10th anniversary party. Two years old lambic aged with Cabernet Franc grapes.
A: Pours bright red with a very small head. The color is very impressive.
S: Smell is quite sour, citric and lactic acid. It is really focused on the fruits: grapes and cherries. Something
a little bit green on the nose also.
T: Taste follows. The fruit is pretty straightforward, it kacks a little bit of complexity. I wouldèsay this is too young. Still enjoyable.
M: Soft mouthfeel, good carbonation.
O: A good grape lambic, not as complex as other offerings of the brewery (especially compared to some of the wonderful grape lambic we had on the same day at Cantillon during their open brew days: an awesome 2002 St-Lamvinus, lambic d'Aunis or the new new still St-Lamvinus Grand Cru made with 4 years old lambic). I would love to revisit it with some age on it though.
