Had on tap. Lemon is the key ingredient here, sorry rhubarb. The lemon holds everything together, bringing out the tart in the rhubarb, the big funk in the yeast, and the hay in the base. Creates some esters of green apple, grape, pear, and others. Warming up helps the depth of flavor Perfect to have with meats and cheese.

Slightly hazy pastel yellow-gold with a soft, creamy white head that persists throughout as a thick clingy collar.

Really funky but light stinky cheese aromas are followed by overripe peach, and a little sawdust or crushed almond.

I do not get a lot of rhubarb in taste, more like a lemon-raspberry tart, which I guess in itself is pretty close to straight rhubarb, but we have rhubarb that grows all around the house so it's not a flavor I'm unfamiliar with when ultra fresh. I also get some barnyard funk, and as it warms, some fresh rhubarb faintly emerges. Luckily I had some rhubarb jam nearby to tease out the rhubarb flavor, but it is not like a mouth puckering crunch of that green-pinkish stalk, it's just a slight twinge running along the background.

Medium body with a soft, frothy feel.

From tercertiempocervezaa. 2017 version. 75cl. In Teku glass. Playing Avernum 4. Didnt notice nothing special from the rubharb, just a well adjusted sourness that is affordable but fails to impress, specially given its high price tag

Enormous thanks to Francois for sharing.

A - Poured into a standard tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave light wisps and a thin halo.

S - Aromas of nice barnyard full, hay blankets, light fruit notes along with strong acidity.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with excellent funk and barnyard. Really nice light vegative, tart. Pleasant.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean.

O - Overall this was a rather solid Cantillon beer. Excellent funk and tartness.

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.
