Bottle shared at Moeder Lambic at the yearly tasting last weekend. Always a good time gents!
From a 750ml, hand marked bottle into a tasting glass.
APPEARANCE: Pours out flat with no head at all. Deep, hazy safety orange in color with no carbonation evident. Flat and unremarkable.
SMELL: This is pretty rough. Rotten vegetables with some caramel notes and light funk initially. Very musty with notes of what can only be described as dried mother's milk. Not appealing.
TASTE: Also rather challenging in the flavor as well. Quite sweet up front with caramel and toffee mixing in with rotten vegetables and cabbage at the swallow. Some funky notes with mold and musty flavors try to cut through the foul fruit and rotten vegetables, but fail. Some old, dried milk lingers on the palate as well. This is tough.
PALATE: Thicker and syrupy body with no carbonation. Flat and slick going down, finishing slightly sticky on the palate.
OVERALL: This was an option for Zwanze 2012 but got scrapped. Apparently it was then sold off to a festival in the US... I appreciate the effort and the attempt to make something different. The guys at Cantillon don't shy away from the unknown, which makes them a fun brewery to support. Unfortunately they can't all be winners, and this one just doesn't work for me. Thanks for the share gents. Always good times.

Bottle thanks to Eric.
Pours a orange color, bubbles here and there. Sweet malts, caramel, booze, some oak. Taste is harsh medicinal, some sweetness, oak, malts. Medium body, very light carbonation, harsh finish.
Very unique beer and not something I’d go after again.

First pour at the Festival. From the decanter, clear gold brown pour with zero head. Weird grape aroma, lots of wood, cherries ketchup, strangely acetic for a lambic, really woody. Flavor of sour cherries, lots of oak, light boozy notes, slightly acrid wood finish. Palate is med bodied with low carbonation. Usually I'm a big fan of Cantillon, but this one was disappointing.
