4/5 rDev -3.4%
6oz pour out of an unlabeled bottle at Brasserie Cantillon at the conclusion of the brewery tour. Poured into a Cantillon taster glass 7/3/2014.
App- Hazy dark orange body, minimal white head, no lacing. Looks very placid.
Smell- Funky, lemon zest, orange, more funk, horse blanket and hay. Strong nose and very interesting. It smells an awful lot like the brewery itself!
Flavour- Lemon zest, oak, horse blanket, hay, straw, earth. Good amount of vinegar acidity, perhaps 6/10. Just about what I expected after the brewery tour, smelling and nearly tasting the air.
Mouthfeel- Low carbonation, a bit flat. Makes sense why they blend young and old lambic to make geuezes. Dry, acidic yet refreshing.
Overall- Interesting. It seems to basically be Bruocsella Grand Cru, but more raw and with a bit more carbonation.

4.05/5 rDev -2.2%
The beer is a murky pale yellow/golden color. No head on the beer and no carbonation, still.
The beer is sour in aroma like vinegar. Notes of lemon grass, a lot of funk, some goat, and you can smell the acidity.
The beer bites your tongue, very sour and acidic with some lactic acid.
Mouthfeel is medium and a little hard to make our with the sourness.
The beer is very sharp in the finish, not a rounded sourness.

Served on-tap at Churchkey on Zwanze day 2012.
A - Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a small half finger tall bubbly white head, dissipating down to nothing at all, leaving no lace at all down the glass.
S - Smell is pretty muted until it fully warms up. Hints of funky cheese, damp oak, basement must, some lemon zest and a dash of vinegar.
T - Starts off with a big sour kick that fades as quickly as it hit you leaving behind hints of lemon zest, musty funk, dry oak and a dash of booze burn. Finish is funky with a moderate amount of dryness, doesn't stick around too long tho.
M - Light with very light carbonation. Its has a tart feel but it does't linger for very long, allowing it to be consumed quite easily.
O - I feel like this is exactly what an unblended two year old lambic should taste. Sure its a little rough around the edges, but thats why its perfect for blending and fruit additions. I am glad I got to try this, I look forward to having it again one day, hopefully a little closer to the source.
