As Cantillon Drogone Cantina Giardino Head gone in seconds. Deep Burgundy beer, well-carbonated. Fruity, vinous, horseblanket, winegrapes all over the place. Vinous, red wine with lactic and malonic acids. Excellent balance wine-beer. The grapes coming up stronger and stronger warming up. Acidthinning, light bodied, very dry, well-carbonated. Just a bit too full to be really refreshing, but would do great in summer all the same. Another tour de force, Jean!
Draft @ ML Fontainas.
Pourpre, col fin rosé.
Arôme sur des effluves terreuses le tout a un parfum assez unique qui me rappelle un peu celui d'une salaison-saucisse italienne. Rétro modéré de boisé de châtaignier aux notes un peu plus tanniques. Bouquet marqué par des notes de baies et raisins.
Palais est profond au niveau du caractère fruité, chargé en notes de baies et de raisins avec une sécheresse marquée par le lambic dont qcq notes de grains.
Pours à clear dark red purple. Small ring of head. Scent is strong, cheesy, funk, mild wood. Taste is sharp, mild acidic, very balanced, raw red grapes. Pefumy, aromatic, red grapes, no tannins. Woody, typical cantillon funk in medium intensity.
