Rarest of the Rare Cantillon

  1. Hmmm... not sure I follow you here. Without Brett Brux/Pedio/Lacto, there isn't sour beer.. or at least these kinds of sour beers. There are a number of places that outline how these particular yeast strains act upon the unfermented wort.. in what order they take place, how long these particular strains act upon the wort etc... absolutely, the blender has a HUGE impact on the finished product.. but none of it 'happens' without those yeast strains.

    Would certainly be interesting to see if another region would be able to produce a similar product. A somewhat expensive experiment, but could be fun!!

    I had a 2012 the other week as well as thought it was really good as well, didnt have it fresh though so cant really compare. But definitely tasting great right now.

    So how do you manage to land these rarities, without a stock of things to trade in return? Straight cash?
  4. I think you're giving him too much credit here. Why buy fake beer when he can create it himself?

    He doesnt have anything else for sale so it doesnt matter. . But i find that comment which was made in vein humorous considering the circumstances.

    But, you know what? I created it myself. Its not really pinot, i decided to to fake the least impressive bottle in the picture . Trader beware when i decide to trade one of my pinots, my favorite cantillon.. beware, its fake,,,, i created it... yeah, its fake

    How much did the Pinot d' Anus set you back? I'm sure the price point is way higher than I'd be willing to pay, but still curious.
  14. Isn't that just the zwanze 2011 pinot d'aunis? I don't think the OG version came out when Cantillon was using the new black caps.

    Edit: the one I drank had this sticker on it [​IMG]

    Some of that cantillon is worth it, but I prefer Ann to just about all of them.
