2007 Vintage (batch 3) - 75cl bottles. Gold foil.

Shared with some fellow BAers at our December Big Boy Bottle Tasting.

A: Super dark reddish purple color. The purplish head was really nice looking but it quickly dissipates. Little floaties maybe seeds, are visible when held up to light.

S: Fruit right up front. This beer had an incredible balance between tartness and some funk. Both were quite intense.

T: Intense tartness right up front. The blueberry fruit very subtly but goes so well with the tart sour taste. Perfectly balanced.

M: amazing. A touch dry in the finish. Fantastic carbonation

O: One of the best beers I have ever had. Simply amazing. Cantillon truly makes phenomenal beers
