Fat på Akkurat delad med @msbrindbergs. Dimmig guldfärgad vätska med lågt vitt skum. Doftar övermogen frukt, åt det sura hållet. Sur smak med en stor bitterhet. God men inte riktigt min grej.

Fat på Akkurat. Dimmig mörkgul vätska, vitt skum. Doftar surt äpple, punkt. Smakar surt, punkt. Det vita fruktköttet på citronen ligger kvar och nöter. Inte min typ av öl... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DwarfeD (1050) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2014
Draught at Borefts ’14. Pale golden with almost no head. Medium body with quite some carbonation. Very present sourness with some bitter tones. Citrus, apple, grass and funk. A sour quality brew.

RD400F (185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
20/11/13 dated 37cl bottle to champagne tulip, the gueuze pours a turbid orange with a white fizzling head that disappears leaving no lacing. Aroma consists of apple, sour funk, lemon/orange peel, latex gloves, some floral aromas as well. Pretty complex but not as wowing as the fruit blended lambic. Taste is sour but not bracingly so...however there is a slight plastic element there in the background, though mostly overshadowed by the sour elements and other complexities. Beer is definitely palatable, how can you not like Cantillon? Mouthfeel is very dry, co2 is quite low, but it’s very drinkable and refreshing. Overall, great beer but I prefer the fruit versions. This is complex but the fruit additions give it more depth.

thomashall (86) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Tap at Scheras Zwanze day. Pours yellowish gold. Smells of barnyard funk with some apple. Taste sour and tart with astringent finish. Really enjoyed this.

Nische (774) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2014
Vintage 2009, draught at Akkurat. Pours cloudy golden. Strong sour aroma with notes of apple cider and grapes. Vinous taste with grassy notes and strong acidity. Funky, sour and quite frankly pretty damn awesome.

AirForceHops (3298) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Draft at Armsby Abbey. Before Zwanze 2014. Aromas of musty basement, lactic acids, light grass clippings and moldy straw.

The flavor to,me is just like it smells. Very tart and lactic with a drying palate. Thankfully no vinegar. Nice mild puckering. The best thing I can say about this brew is it was real drinkable for me and I’m not a sour head by any means. This is balanced enough that I drank 8 oz. which is an enormous accomplishment. No really it is, pretty amazing.

9/20/2014. On tap at The Birch, Zwanze 2014. Golden yellow with a whie head. Mellow, funky aromas with hints of oak. Not overly tart. So balanced and complex. Long dry finish.
