Bottle at Cantillon. Zwanze 2012. Hazy Gold with a small White head. Nice fruity aroma with a touch of menacing sourness. Not too much though. Tastes acidic and has a very pronounced Rhubarb flavour. Reminded me of when we had rhubarb growing in our back garded when I was wee. Sour and earthy with a delicious acidity. Delicious.

Bottle at brewery. Tart rhubarb aroma with white grape and faint vanilla. Almost totally clear orange yellow under a lasting, white collar. Sour and gueuzey at first before the rhubarb kicks in, which works beautifully. Mouth puckering sourness, moderate to medium carbonation, crisp.

Bottle pour as 2012 Zwanze at the source. The beer is a slightly hazy copper with a white head of foam. The aroma is juicy, sour, rhubarb goodness. Like a nice rhubarb pie. The taste has that rhubarb sourness through the finish. Lingering finish with the taste of rhubarb. Man, this beer is good! It makes for an awesome landmark 3500 rate.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the brewery, marked as Zwanze 12. Pours a clear deep golden color with an off white head. Very unique aroma, with a mix of herbs and spices, with a good sour lambic backbone. Very sour flavor that lingers long into the finish, but offset by the rhubarb character. In my top 3 of the Cantillon beers I’ve tried so far.

Appearance: almost clear golden with hint of reddish hue. Nose: farmy, slight rhubarb. Some dairy qualities as well. Mouthfeel is lively and taste is tart with hint of first of summer rhubarb. Aftertaste is long with sweeter red fruit.. Sweeter being relative. Really sour most of all but that is perfectly fine.
