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."

Great taste this on!

The flower aroma mixes perfectly with the lambic and everything balanced to well.
For me I don't notice any oak and this is something I like!

i don't know if any of the people who say "barnyard" in a beer tasting have ever been in a barnyard. If they had ever mashed and bruised and rolled the hollow stem of an iris between their fingers until the cells between the strands turned into the watery, tugging, viscous, liquid that runs down your legs after the second time on a tart day in your cycle then I don't know why they wouldn't just say that this tastes like that.
