This was delicious. The rhubarb flavor was spot on-- I need to hit the minimum character requirement so I can Mark this beer as "had."
It seems like a glitch in the programing because I can't jist mark this as "had," so I I'll tell whoever reads this that this beer was pretty fucming spectacular.
Sadly it is not available. Tough shit. You missed out.
Seriously.

750ml bottle - Cantillon

2012 vintage

Served in Cantillon wine-style glass. Bright orange body with a white foam ring. It's definitely a tart one - there are fruity notes coming from the Rhubarb, but in a beer of this nature, you'd have to have an expert palate to be able to identify that without knowing it was included. Some strange vegetable notes in the finish. Some good things here, some not so great. Glad to tick it, but least impressive of all of the bottles we had.

75 cl bottle at Cantillon Brewery. Poured into a Cantillon chalice.

A: Poured a cloudy, golden yellow. Little, if any carbonation visible. Small foamy head that quickly dissipates.

S: Sour, signature Cantillon funk, and a little citrus. Reminded me of the Vigneronne.

T: The comparison to Vigneronne is close, but not exact. Less sour, particularly at the beginning but still with quite a pucker at the end. A friend I shared it with said "sour skittles." Not typical BA language, but it's kinda there. It's a very straight forward sourness with citrus. Doesn't seem to be a ton going on here, but what there is is certainly good.

M: Light, tart, and crisp. Reminiscent of most Cantillons.

O: I was a little disappointed with this beer. It's still very good, but the restrictions on taking it away and the price tag (the highest at the brewery per bottle, though still not bad) made me expect a bit more. I like where they're going with the beer, but I think it just turned out better with Saint Lumvinus.
