Brewed by:
Brasserie Cantillon

Style: Lambic - Fruit

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Everyone knows some of our best friends are wine growers from the Libourne region in France, more specifically those who make Saint Emillion and Pomerol. They respect the tradition and let their wine ferment in a natural way.

Fermentation, origin and vintage are still kept up.

Our collaboration resulted in a product uniting the best of their wine and of our beer : the Saint-Lamvinus.

The grapes, of the merlot and cabernet-franc varieties, are soaked in Bordeaux barrels containing two to three years old lambic. The beer is not blended before the bottling. The foam is caused by the addition of a liquor which starts the fermentation.

A-Cloudy deep ruby read, one finger pink head.

S-Grapes, fruit, more grapes, oak, mild funk.

T-Starts with a nice funk and then proceeds to be very fruity, grapes very wine like, tad bit of oak.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation but crisp.

O-An amazing beer, balance is where it should be, maybe it could be more sour but you can still taste this beer a day after having.
