Tap @ Spuyten Duyvil for Zwanze Day 2012. Pours a cloudy golden with mild orange hue. Huge,strong, rocky bleach white head that takes forever to dissipate (tapping had to go into pitchers before pouring into glasses). The aroma was filled with peppery spices and floral notes on top of a lactic sour base. On the palate, the tart sour notes dominate until the finish when clearly floral and earth notes come through. Finishes clean and crisp with a mild pepper zing on the end. Fabulous stuff. Sessionable if you can find enough of it.

I was not a fan of this until this year’s Zwanze Day, but this keg was amazing. The floral character was extremely pleasant rather than overly herbaceous, and this is definitely a lactic beauty, not overwhelmingly sour but great tartness.

"A nice sour from Cantillon. 2009 bottle. Funky barnyard, lemons, and some floral qualities to the aroma. Flavor is sour, not quite bracingly so, but not subtle either. There is little sweetness, but an underlying pleasant fruitiness, with hints at bitterness and stinky cheese. Good stuff."

On tap at Zwanze day. Comes a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral, funk, and fruit. Taste is floral, citrus, funk, spice, and wood. Delicious.

Draft. Pour is hazy orange, minimal head. Earthy, dank, and floral on the nose. Taste is tart and floral, with the elderberries just adding a unique tinge to the palette. Very nice lambic.

Tap at Scheras Zwanze day. Pours gold with minimal head. Smells of floral and barnyard funk. Taste of spice and sour pucker. Solid beer...would like to try again.

Duntoyou (104) - Kr.sand, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2014
Been somewhat of a whale to me. Been wanting this for a hell of a long time. Usually you get disapointed when having big expectations like that. This one did not disapoint. A beer that has everything. The tarty barnyard stableboy combined with the complex yet balanced taste of the elderflower. Try masterpiece from cantillon

Beautiful hazy cobber with dense white head. Aroma is loads of elder flower and stinging netle. Fruity and sour palate. Aftertaste is nestle, fruit, funk and dry stinging netle. Overall: a real wow beer!
