    Bottles availability depends on what is labeled or not. I've been to Cantillon last Friday and there was nor LPG neither magnum available. But on Saturday, both were available again.

    I think you can expect zwanze (at least one) and a vintage gueuze. The pineau is a new batch - thats been there for a couple months.

    This morning, besides Gueuze Lou Pepe (limit of 3), St Lamvinus (3), Cuvée Saint-Gilloise, plus classic gueuze, kriek, Rosé (those three in 37.5 as well as 75cl) and I think Iris and Grand Cru B. At the bar, besides TurdFurgison's report, Mamouche (just to be clear, not for takeaway) available, and 50N4E is still written up there.

    Any update on what's still currently available? Have a friend travelling in Europe this week that may be able to stop by the brewery and bring me back a souvenir.

    I'm visiting Amsterdam for two nights and Brussels for three nights in May (coming from Seattle but working in Dublin for a week prior). This forum has been a great help so far. It sounds like my timing might be off for Cantillon bottles (too late for LP Gueuze, too early for LP Framboise?)--are LP or other non-standard bottles for sale around town, as well?

    So looking at Untappd, it looks like they still Fou available? On-site only?

    This should definitely be a sticky thread!

    Fou will not be for take-away until this September. It's a once-in-a-year realease.
     
  28. Yeastie7

    Yeastie7 Initiate (0) Jan 31, 2015 Belgium

    Elmanana, could you share the year timetable of all Cantillon releases? Or does it always vary? F.ex the Vig would have been released last month but still is too slimey..
    January : Fou
    February : Lamvinus
    March : Iris & St Gill...
    ...

    mathieu87 Initiate (120) Jun 22, 2011 Belgium

    It varies from year to year, release to release. Hard to tell.... Lamvinus and Vigneronne were bottled in the same week: one is almost sold out, the other one isn't even for sale yet... Hard to tell!!

    Any chance vigneronne Will be available the upcomming week? Think i Will be there 03 april. So if someone wants to join to share Some beers
     
  31. Yeastie7

    Yeastie7 Initiate (0) Jan 31, 2015 Belgium

    Will be a tough call, release is postponed 2-3 months... Saccharomyces viscosus still at work..

    "During its first hot season, lambic gets an infection of "saccharomyces viscosus", making the lambic slimey, undrinkable thanks to the mouthfeel. Once this is gone, the lambic is ready for consumption. But, as in every brewery the indigenous microflora is slightly different, as well as every year, temperatures are different, the notion "old", and "young" might differ, and be on a sliding scale.

    Does anyone have any idea what specific batch that is? I just tried one bottled 10/29 today, and it was not good. I'd describe it as more syrupy than slimy, and totally flat, with weird flavors I don't remember in that beer. Is that the batch that isn't ready? It would make sense.
     
  34. KevDesmet

    KevDesmet Initiate (68) Aug 1, 2014 Belgium

    The batch that isn't ready hasn't been released yet so it can't be the same you have

    I was told a batch was sent to distributors, but they were instructed not to release it yet. I'm wondering whether this is the same batch.
