Bottle into a snifter appears a clear light yellow to copper color with a white head.

It smells sulfuric, cheesy and grassy with quite a bit of egg farts going on. Honestly the nose is not appealing on this.

It tastes tart and lemony lactic to grassy with rhubarb being noticeable atop a slight grain essence.

This is light in body with modest carbonation. Despite getting off to a rough start in the nose department this turned out to be quite a chuggable offering that id quite enjoy to have some bottles of to revisit again sometime.

750ml cork and capped bottle, dated 4 July 2017, served in a Cantillon stemmed glass. Pours a bright lemon yellow body, unfiltered with a slight haze to it. One finger white head, good retention, a bit of lacing, even. Smell is vegetal and rhubarb-forward. Tart rhubarb character with a fair bit of herbal character backing it up. There is a leathery, lemon funk behind it all, with a mild-moderate acetic acidity and some oak. Flavour is mild-moderate acetic acidity, a lot of rhubarb character, oak, a bit of leather and wet funk. No sulphur. A bit of a mild vegetal bitterness on the finish rounding it out. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, appropriately carbonated, refreshingly tart without much bitterness, fair bit of funk on the backend. A really nice flavour, fairly tart without too much sweetness but not harsh like rhubarb can get to be on its own.

750 ml picked up from the brewery. I grew up with a rhubarb plant in the garden and a rhubarb pie and some preserves every year, so I was looking forward to this. Pour is...well honestly it looks like the gueuze. Lovely big head that goes creamy, and clear pale gold liquid, but the rhubarb doesn't color this one like many of the other fruits do. Nose is on the lighter side I'd say for Cantillon. Yes, it has the distinct funk and obvious citric acidity, but it is not pronounced. I do get the added element of rhubarb here and really like how it rounds out the smell. Taste is actually mild as well for a Cantillon. Very drinkable as the funk and tartness is slightly below average, but I could see some people saying this isn't what they were looking for. I honestly couldn't have picked out the rhubarb flavor in a blind tasting, but it seems to have just mellowed the whole thing out. I would go so far as to say this would be a good intro to Cantillon for folks that aren't used to the funky tartness since it is softer here. Overall, a very good beer...but I miss the funk a bit.
