4.43/5  rDev +7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Really couldy but fine particles floating within, slightly milky, no carbonation, no head.

S: The sour, grainy, mash and the same oak aged scent that pervades the brewery all come through in this beer. Dry and Fruity.

T: No carbonation, grain mash and oak, dry, almost an apricot quality, sour.

M: No carbonation, very dry.

O: Drank at Cantillon Brewery, awesome experience. This one came with the brewery tour.

Serving type: on-tap
