This is the un-blended 2 year Cantillon lambic served on-tap at Lord Hobo for Zwanze Day 2012. 12oz serving in a tulip glass ordered twice and consumed alongside other Cantillons including Zwanze '12. Supposedly this is very rare and we were told not many bars got this even for Zwanze Day.

A- Appears a bright still golden color with hardly any carbonation and absolutely no head. Some faint small carbonation bubbles here and there, but overall hardly any carbonation and absolutely no lacing.

S- Musty, Funky, a little bit of Vinegar. Fairly aromatic and comparable to a nice aged cheese.

T- Musty, funky, some light vinegar, very light acidic sourness on the finish.

M- Medium bodied, easy to drink, not really carbonated but doesn't really take away anything from the taste.

O- I'm very glad I got to try this- not only was it very interesting but it was very good. It was awesome being able to try this alongside other Cantillons. I wouldn't say this was as flavorful as other Cantillons, but it definitely had the unique Cantillon funk that the microorganisms in the brewery creat. For an unblended lambic this was fantastic and practically just as enjoyable as any blended lambic. Overall this was an awesome experience and I would recommend any one to try it as well if they get the chance.

I had this at Churchkey on Zwanze day 2012. It was on draft and was referred to as "Cantillon unblended 2 year". It was a sour lambic with lots of unusual, funky flavours. As one would expect for the style, it was a little out of control.

A: No head. Yellow. 3.5

S: Sour. Slight rotten apple smell. Some sweetness 3.5

T: Sour with a slight blue cheese flavour in the finish. Super interesting. Vomit finish. I enjoyed it though. 4

M: Flat. 3

O: 4

Notes from Cantilon Brewery. Served from a ceramic jug into a sherry glass. Room temp.

A-Cloufy golden/orange with no head or lacing.

S-Some lemon and orange with that Cantillon funk. Some hay and earthy aromas.

T-Lemon and grass. Earthy citrus with a bitter lemon peel finish.

M-Smooth, dry, flat. Room temp is perfect. I think I'd dislike it if it was cold.

O-Nice treat to be able to try it at the brewery. Good, but not the best of their offerings by any means.

Serving type: cask
