Bottle at Moeder, split 3 ways with the wife and Mike (bytemesis), cheers! Pour is a rose-red, small carb gives an thin pink-ish head. Aroma is of barnyard, horse blanket, pinot grape, wet oak, light hay, light berry skin. Taste is a gorgeous medley of grape skins, funky vinous notes, medium hay, medium horse blanket. Great balance of the tart and the funk...all tied together with a sticky wine note. FInishes with signature Cantillon funk, semi-tart, semidry. Fantastic!

2014 Pineau d’Aunis.
Golden-cranberry with a pink-tinged head that is large and well-retained for the style.
Aw yes, that stinks very nicely. This is like the fresh Cantillons from 10 or so years ago that I used to drink so regularly (as opposed to it being impossible to find now). Just a lovely, sulfur-rich nose with tart, bright, brett and grape acids mixing very nicely together. No real acetic character and light lactic notes, with tons and tons of rich, leathery, horseblanket-like barnyard. Not as much fruit as many of the other grape lambics I’ve had, but still enough to add complexity. No alcohol or flaw.
Similar flavor, with a highly effervescent, well-attenuated, malt/wheat-soft palate, vivacious grape notes (piquant currant, cranberry, gooseberry) with tons of brett and lactic character and a moderately-strong sourness with tons of tartness lingering behind the teeth. Superb and elegant.

This one is hard to review because the three versions are so completely different from one another. Almost like they’re not the same beer. In any event, the old one is musty and hose blankety. Z11 has this complexity and grapiness that’s just brilliant. And the new one is some WOW JUICE.
