Poured from the bottle at Zwanze Day.
Pours deep yellow. A few pours had some tiny bubbles. Most were almost completely still.
Smells a bit tart with a few more Belgian spices than I normally get in Cantillon aroma.
Kind of a generic gueuze quality, which I know is probably intended, but it's nothing special. It's sour, but without a real pop. Just sort of faintly oaky and left me expecting more.
Very low carbonation level makes the mouthfeel a bit oily and doesn't really let the flavors pop.
Nothing too bad here and probably hurt my opinion that I had it the same day as Cantillon's best, but didn't really do much for me. I'd normally enjoy drinking a glass of this, but would prefer other fruited or more flavorful options when I want to reach for a sour beer.
