cantillon.be

Style: Lambic - Unblended

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."

Kind of strange really, very sour yeasty aroma, with hints of parsley, lemongrass and flowers. Quite sour and then bitter, with a grassy earthy flavour, complex and different. I don't think this quite worked, that green stemmy, flowery quality, didn't seem to fit alongside the sour yeastyness. Still, hardcore.

2013 vintage. Good taste of oak. Very acidulated. Long floral bitterness. Not my favorite from Cantillon but very drinkable
