Bottle drank at the source as Zwanze 2012 on 9/6/14. Cantillon in Brussels. Pours clear golden colored with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet sugars, tart rhubarb, dusty oak. Flavor has lots of funk, sweet and sour with light fruitiness, tart rhubarb with some twigs and dirt to go along, lemon tart finish. Very light bodied but with plenty of flavor and lots if carbonation. This was really nice, with the rhubarb influence subtle but noticeable.

Bottle @ Cantillon

Hazy gold with a white head. Quite a bit of carbonation present that holds a head.

Almost straight lambic but there is a nice little amount of rhubarb hanging in there to give it some dynamic. Wood, leaf, cheese, musty.

Lots of carbonation and sourness to it which is a bit of a shock at first sip. Dry of course.

Really nicely done. I bet this was exciting fresh.

Bottle courtesy of Alberto.
A-this is a lively lambic. Looks like their guezue. A lingering film of white head atop a clear golden brew.
S-Typical Cantillon. Funky. Notes of leather, must, and stable. Sour, not picking up rhubarb but then again rhubarb doesn't have much of an aroma.
T-like the aroma. The sourness is quite high. The rhubarb seems to give this beer some astringency. Lots of that Cantillon funk.
M-very light bodied and dry.
O-distinctly Cantillon. No problem to drink a bottle of this at the brewery. Refreshing brew.
