Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass.

Look is a hazy golden amber with a think head that dissipates quickly into a thin white line.

Aromas are classic lambic. Lots of funky horse blanket, light citrus acidity.

Taste is dry and smooth with a funky acidity through the whole thing. Tart and tangy but not overwhelming.

Absolutely delicious.

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.
