BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Cantillon
Belgium
cantillon.be

Style: Lambic - Unblended

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

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."

Surprised to not see a review here for this one, prob buried in a notebook somewhere, none the less, 2012 out of a batch 1 iris glass.

Brew pours a murky orange thin fizzy head. Golden, minimal lace.

Floral grassy hay a bit of lemon and nice sweetness on the back end

Taste is real nice, very earthy grass with some lemon tartness

Funky tart puckers feel

Real nice. Earthy dryness. Tart. Lemon. Grassy. Enjoyable.
