Bottle of Pineau D’Aunis at Cantillon. Pours a hazy reddish color with off-white head. Spicy Cabernet like grape aromas, with funk and tartness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a lot of spice, dry, and tart.

Has a sherry, dark red, very saturated color, with a small, fizzy head.

Smells of oaky barnyard, wet hay, ripe, spicy grapes, wrapped up by a pleasant sourness, inheriting apple skin and citrus peel.

Tastes of red, matured grapes which got an earthy pepperiness to them, as well as balancing, mellow, wooden malts. The pepper is recognizable in the most pleasant way, accentuating the rich grape foundation of the beer, brought down to a round figure by a tart, fruity acidity. Due to the spicy pepper infusion this becomes much more complex than any druiven lambic I have tasted so far, complimenting the stone qualities of the grapes, as well as adding a maturing, oaky aspect to them. Finishes very tart, sour, with a convincing dry note to it, revealing characteristics of a young, slightly fermented wine.
