I had this Cantillon Lambic d'Haute Densite at the Cantillon Brewery. Unique, boozy, flat and absolutely phenomenal, my favorite of all the Cantillon brews I tried that day.

~4-6 oz. pour at Brasserie Cantillon. October 2012. Review from notes. After conversing with Jean for a couple hours, he disappeared to get "something very special." I was intrigued, to say the least.

The beer is a bit darker than the standard lambic. A few bubbles, but the beer is essentially still. The nose brings grape skins, musky funk, white wine, oak, light floral notes, earthy scents, mushrooms.

When Jean brought this to me, he did not tell me what was in the glass. I sniffed and savored for approximately a half hour before finally succumbing to curiosity. Me: "I’ve never had this before." Jean: "I know" He then explained the lambic and the process by which it came to be.

Alcohol content was masked so elegantly, I had no idea this weighed in at 9.7% abv. This drinks like an elegant French wine paired with all that is fabulous about Cantillon, what an experience. This was perhaps the highlight of my trip to Belgium.
