Draft offering of a 2 year year old unblended lambic. The brew appears a clear golden orange through body and more yellowish around the edges. A few larger sized bubbles hang around the perimeter of the glass.
The nose has notes of cheese, oak and vinegar with a slight edge of something fruity like pear and citrus zest. Very clean smelling with a nice complexity and overall enjoyable set of balanced aromatics.
The flavor is a bit like coder at first and surprisingly more focuse on alcohol esters than I would have guessed. Some notes of pear mix with a woody earth inclusion and an herbal bitterness brings in the finish.
This is a medium bodied brew with a lower level of carbonation. A kiss of alcohol keeps things interesting. This was tart but not puckeringly so. I found myself crushing my glass quicker than I wanted to was left wanting to drink more. I dont know how often a treat like this comes around but if you get a chance, you need to try this.

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

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.
