Brewed by:
Brasserie Cantillon
Belgium

Style: Belgian Lambic

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
From the brewery's website: "Although it is a spontaneous fermentation beer, the Iris is very different from the Lambic. The amber colour and the bitter and slightly caramelized taste make it a complex beer."

A 750ml corked and capped bottle, bottled on 9th January 2018. Poured into a Cantillon ballon glass.

Appearance: A lightly hazy golden orange colour with a one and a half finger off white head that dissipates fairly quickly to a thin layer, while leaving some sparse lacing.

Aroma: Tart, funky barnyard, oak, apricot, grapefruit, citrus zest and rind.

Taste: Sour, lightly bitter, a hint of sweetness, funk, oak, apricot, peach, grapefruit zest, lemon and leather with a hint of floral and herbal.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.

Overall: Very enjoyable and great to drink. Even better when aged properly for a few years.

Absolutely amazing lambic. The 2007 version was a delightful spontaneous ale the delivers the terroir of Cantillon in a succinct and impressionable flow.

Bottle from Jeremy. Medium golden with finely beaded head. Aroma of stone fruit, tart, floral. Taste is more of the same, light and effervescent. Finish is equally sweet and tart.
