Picked up this gem from the Cantillon Brewery three days ago.
I was told it was ready for drinking right now and so I wasted no time. (I also let this breathe for about an hour after opening before my first sip)

Made with elder-flower ... is this a fruit lambic or a flower lambic I asked myself?
Pours a hazy orange into a small Cantillon goblet and forms a pretty excellent head of foam not too unlike a Duvel!

Smells pleasantly floral (as I guess it should) and tastes absolutely wonderful. The elder-flower is strong but the typical Cantillon sourness is also very re-assuringly present.
A very unique taste, I am not used to consuming elder-flowers, but perhaps as much as a DIPA such as PtE has that wonderful union of flowery hops and bitterness, Zwanze replaces the bitter with intense sour and ups the floral experience a level.

Drinkability ... finished the 750ml by myself quite easily and then wondered why I didn't buy another bottle or two!! but I'd opted for a fresh St. Lamvinus to travel back with and the luggage was getting heavy. So glad I got to taste Zwanze 2009 though. Cantillon's 2009 released beers are amazing even for their high standards ... this is the third I've tried after Blabaer and Fou Foune that have been just "wow"!!!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750ml bottle poured into balloon snifter 14/6/14 cheers Kmat10 for opening the bottle

A a bit of a yeasty pour, cloudy orange liquid, a few bubbles but not a whole lot for head or lace

S floral, cheesy funk, kinda smells like taking out ragweed with a whipper snipper, caramel, lemon, apple pie filling crust included, mild spice, vinegar, and wet wood

T plenty going on much like the nose, less floral notes, some cereal comes out, sour but not overly so, not exactly what I was expecting

M almost foamy, slick on the palate, some pucker to it but mellow, strange weedy finish

O something different and interesting, I can't think of anything else I've had that's similar, not my favorite offering from Cantillon but worth a try

I'm happy to try it but not the same world class experience I've gotten from Cantillon in the past, maybe I'll like it more in a decade or two.
