Poured on tap into a tumbler at Churchkey as part of Zwanze day 2012. From notes, 2 year unblended.
Ok I am sure I am going to get some hatred on this one, but I have to be honest with myself here from all the Cantillon fanboys (and ladies). I know of course lambics can come out without any head, that's fine. That's not my issue with appearance on this. My issue is this looks in the glass like a urine sample. Golden urine yellow, the odd tiny bubble creeps up or sticks to the glass, and clear. I am sorry gang this doesn't look appetizing appearance wise, that's just me. Let's get to the more enjoyable parts of this now shall we.
Bouquet has a real nice brine salt character, and mixture of classic funk notes. Lemon tang punches in nicely also.
Palate hits with a real big almost thick vinegar body. Somewhere between white wine and rice vinegar acid, chewy and dense. Finish hits with a real hint of strangely faint sweetness slightly masking over the sourness. Heavily earthy and lots of soil dirt in the mid palate, also bringing much of the classic lemon sensing nose to taste.
Overall it's a solid lambic, even if it doesn't look like something I would want to drink.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
