Bottle drank at the source as Zwanze 2012 on 9/6/14. Cantillon in Brussels. Pours clear golden colored with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet sugars, tart rhubarb, dusty oak. Flavor has lots of funk, sweet and sour with light fruitiness, tart rhubarb with some twigs and dirt to go along, lemon tart finish. Very light bodied but with plenty of flavor and lots if carbonation. This was really nice, with the rhubarb influence subtle but noticeable.

Bottle @ Cantillon

Hazy gold with a white head. Quite a bit of carbonation present that holds a head.

Almost straight lambic but there is a nice little amount of rhubarb hanging in there to give it some dynamic. Wood, leaf, cheese, musty.

Lots of carbonation and sourness to it which is a bit of a shock at first sip. Dry of course.

Really nicely done. I bet this was exciting fresh.
