BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Cantillon
Belgium

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.

750ml bottled on November 21, 2012

Appearance: Pours a dark ruby red color with hints of purple. Small, light pink head which dissipates to a thin collar and leaves little to no lacing.

Smell: Musty basement, with some barnyard funk. Notes of sour cherry, red grape, and lemon, vinegar.

Taste: Lemon acidity, grape skin, oak, more barnyard funk, creamy lactic sourness, green apple. Sourness is medium.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied. Medium/low carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall: Another great lambic from Cantillon. Not mindblowing, but definitely worth seeking out.

Poured a clear strawberry red with a light white head.

The nose is dominated by tart lacto along with a touch of ripe fruit.

The flavor is full of a crisp clean tartness along with an underlying bit of dark fruit

The mouthfeel is very tart and dry.

Solid classic sour.
