Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 07-31-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

"This Zwanze is not a Lambic. As you know, everyone can produce an abbey beer in Belgium, and my goal was to brew a top fermentation 'abbey style' mixed with a double spontaneous inoculation (natural one coming from the wild yeast present in the brewery and from the 10% Lambic we added after the first fermentation."

"In Brussels dialect, 'zwanzer' is joking—and if we called this beer Abbaye de Cureghem, it's to laugh about the fake legend built around some belgian abbey beers. Cantillon is located in the Cureghem area but the Cureghem Abbey never existed!"

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pour is dark orangish amber with a ruby note. Nose has a light berry fruit to it, some mushroom notes and a bit muddled. Light wood and a touch of vinegar ever so light. Taste is sweet up front, like a cherry but dirty. Mushroom faintly adding funk with an off flavor in the finish. Something chemically and slightly burnt and bitter. Body thins out in the finish slightly, extremely soft and delicate feel with gentle carbonation.
