On tap at Toronado SD for Zwanse Day, reviewed from notes.
A. Orange apricot in color, no head, effervescent.
S. Rhubarb, unripe fruit, light vinegar, orange zest.

M. Light and bubbly, clean, no residue
Lives up to hype, refreshing.

Sampled at Cantillon on 4/23/2013.
Ap: Hazy Orange with a nice head that dissapates slowly.
Ar: Fruity and sourness up front dominates. some earthiness.
F: I personally didn't taste the rhubarb at all until I was told that it was in there. Rhubarb is a pretty tart vegetable so I had trouble differentiating it from the tart/sourness that is in any sour beer of this sort. Lots of funk.
M: Very effervescent. Dry finishing.
O: Love it. Perhaps my favorite of the day at Cantillon, although it's a toss up between zwanze and fou fone.

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.

A-this is a lively lambic. Looks like their guezue. A lingering film of white head atop a clear golden brew.
S-Typical Cantillon. Funky. Notes of leather, must, and stable. Sour, not picking up rhubarb but then again rhubarb doesn't have much of an aroma.
T-like the aroma. The sourness is quite high. The rhubarb seems to give this beer some astringency. Lots of that Cantillon funk.
M-very light bodied and dry.
O-distinctly Cantillon. No problem to drink a bottle of this at the brewery. Refreshing brew.
