On draft at Churchkey in D.C. Served side by side with Fou' Fonne. Review from notes.

So this is the same brew as Cuvée des Champions. Apparently, I enjoyed this beer in the bottle much more than on draft.

This beer appears a hazy orange, with a little head that fades rather quickly. The beer smells spicy, funky, and noticeably more subtly sour than I expected from a Cantillon. Of course, I did drink this side by side with Fou' Fonne, which was incredibly tart. I found this to be an enjoyable beer, but it lacked the depth and/or complexity that Cantillon beers usually have in spades. This was a plain, decent offering from a brewery that I hold in the highest esteem.
