Well fuck.

Cantillon Iris 2003 (2004 cork): So, I love lambic….but I’ve never been that enamored by Iris. It was good sure, but definitely one of the weaker lambics from Cantillon if you ask me. However, there’s a loyal following of beer nerds that say that Iris only really hits its stride when it’s old. Well, I believe 13 years is old enough right?

 

 

FUCK.

 

 

This beer is incredible! Not nearly as sour as I expected, but unbelievable complexity is here. Grass, barn, funk, wet sock, communism, some Donald Trump hair, it’s all here. Looks like I’m going to have to age my other bottles of Iris for a decade+ before I can drink it again. A++
