4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from cavemanlawyer, thanks James! 2011 Vintage. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with thin, frothy, slightly creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma has a nice sourness up front with a bit of a citric and woody note followed by some bretty funk, tart cherries with just a slight sweetness, some acidity, and a bit of a vinous note. Flavor is similar. Clean, lactic sourness up front with some vinous and citric elements, wood, and funky brett. Cherries grow towards the end with a nice tartness and just a slight sweet note. Finishes clean, fruity, tart, somewhat funky, and dry before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Light body and a soft, somewhat lively, moderate carbonation. Overall, a really complex and enjoyable sour. Dry and clean with a nice fruity tartness, bretty funk, pleasant cherry note, and vinous wood presence. Delicious beer.

Keg at Hoppy Loft, 12th May 15. Probably unfair to rate this after 4 Cantillons. It’s nice some yeast and funk and sourness. OK, nothing exciting for me

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 600th Menu Party
Hazy bright amber color, small head. It’s a quite standard Sour, with a light fruity flavor, and very light black pepper note; a bit lemony too, and woody; balanced.
No surprises, but good.
