Bottle opened by Douglas88, thanks for the brew mi amigo. You know, when you rate an Imperial Stout or an IPA you can draw from lifes experiences to describe the flavors or aromas.Hell, espresso, molasses, citrus, those are all things you can explain. But when a Lambic comes along and me being a city boy and never had a wet nasty horse blanket tossed drapped over my shoulders like Jeremiah Johnson might have, then how can use that as a descriptor? I do not know what the damn thing "smelt" like or even tasted like but it was a-fuckinging-mazing.

vinegar, floral, fruity (grapes?), woody, maybe barnyard? aroma; golden clear, no foam (duh!); heavy sourness, slightly sweet, tartish; light body, thin but little oily feel, no carbonation (duh!), long dry and also sour (wineish) finish
Overall: great beer, very interesting, great taste, wine amongst beers

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2009 bottle. Pours a clear straw color. Horse blanket, lactic acid, and heavy funk fill up the nostrils for the aroma. Slight funkiness and lemon are the dominant flavors with mellow oak. Completely still with a dry white wine finish. OK, but it falls short of the overall stellar quality of most Cantillon brews.

This lambic beer matures for over 3 years on oaken barrels. This lambic beer has a very unique and special colour and aroma. The Cantillon Grand Cru is mostly consumed in a regular wine glass.
