On Zwanze Day at the Kernel in London. Pours a hazy straw with a medium creamy head that coats the glass. Nose is classic Cantillon but softer, rounder, and nice citrus. Really has breadth without any sharp edges. I can't pick out specific smells I can directly attribute to the dry hopping other than a bit more earthiness. Taste follows...very pleasant soft round tartness. Subdued sourness compared to most Cantillon, but still has plenty of depth. Uber drinkable, and the first Cantillon I ever wanted to gulp down. Mouthfeel is creamy and crisp at the same time. Great beer.
