Brewery: Brasserie Cantillon
Style: Belgian Lambic (Fruit)
Other Notes: Muscat grapes
Brewer Description: (from bottle) A fine compromise between wine and beer, this is the Vigneronne Cantillon 100% lambic. The fruity taste of the white grape harmonized with the powerful character of a two year old lambic make from the Vigneronne Cantillon an unique beer. Beer with a taste evolution. Store and serve at cellar temperature 10-13°C/50-55°F. To enjoy completely the fruity taste of the Vigneronne Cantillon, drink it better in the year after purchase. To be drunk preferably within the 10 years after the bottling date.

Intro: A 750ml bottle, bottled on 22nd October 2017. Poured into a Cantillon ballon glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden colour with a less than one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart, white grape, grape skin, peach, apricot, pear, lemon, oak, wet hay with light funk.
Taste: Sour, tart, sweet green grapes, peach, pear, lemon, oak and moderate funk.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Really tasty and excellent as is. It’s only been bottled for less than a year, but I think extra time in the bottle does it wonders.
