Cantillon Zwanze 2012 served from a 750ml bottle in a basket, split amongst a bunch of a wine glasses at the Cantillon brewery. Not sure why the 2012 link takes me to the 2008 listing, but who am I to argue?

Pours a hazy golden. Looks flat. Smell is vaguely tart.

Taste is bright -- sweet and sour with a slight rhubarb flavor. Seems more citrusy thank anything else to me.

Mouthfeel is light and effervescent. Overall, this is a very good beer.
