Draught (as Cantillon Zwanze 2012). Orangeish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is tart wood, earth, mild grass and some berryish notes. Flavour is tart wood, some berries/fruits and mild earthiness. Could do with some more age.

Bottle from Cantillon Brewery. Super wonderfully sour, finding the rhubarb is like playing hide and seek, it appears slightly at the end of a sniff and then disappears to sometimes pop up a bit in the far back corner of your mouth. I don’t know, not the perfect rhubarb sour, but damn delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
One-off from Cantillon, a rhubarb lambic, with some added sugars for refermentation, necessary because rhubarb contains less fermentable sugars than fruits. Loose, cream white, thin head, pretty deep orange blonde colour, cloudy. Complex Cantillon aroma of hay, lemon, sherry, sweat, sulphuric accents, fresh acidity in the onset, very quenching, lots of champenoise carbonation, fruit sourness which probably, but subtly, represents the rhubarb; sherryish and tart Cantillon character but somewhat softer and less acerb than usual from this brewery, bit thinnish end. Not the best Cantillon I had, but interesting nonetheless.

2012 Bottle at Cantillon. Drank this immediately after the unblended lambic and it had a lot of similarities besides the pleasant rhubarb in the finish. Really drinkable, and if you dig rhubarb, really pleasant.

Bottle, shared by Tom10101 @ Cantillon Brewery, labeled as Zwanze 2012. Pours a hazy golden beer with a medium sized, bubbly white head on top. Aroma has feces, sulfide, mineur and barnyard. Really some fecal presences in here. Flavor is light sour, medium fruity and has some leathery influences. Sour apples and a vineous presence complete this beer. Aftertaste is fairly tart and dry.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle ’08 vintage shared by Bucketboy in Philly. Cloudy golden pour with a fluffy white head. Floral yeasty esters and wet blanket aromas. Very earthy, and somewhat dry. Yeast, light spices, and what I suppose is rhubarb. Complex. Not overly tart but with plenty of funkiness. Good body and mouthfeel.

Bottle drank at the source as Zwanze 2012 on 9/6/14. Cantillon in Brussels. Pours clear golden colored with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet sugars, tart rhubarb, dusty oak. Flavor has lots of funk, sweet and sour with light fruitiness, tart rhubarb with some twigs and dirt to go along, lemon tart finish. Very light bodied but with plenty of flavor and lots if carbonation. This was really nice, with the rhubarb influence subtle but noticeable.

As 2012, 750ml, at the Cantillon brewery with Kimberly and Taylod. Aroma is big funky fruity, more fruity than classic cantillon funk, not musky or earthy whatsoever, def strawberry notes, hint of wheat still coming through. Taste is funky, refreshing, pretty low acidity, sour, strawberry. A very nice Lambic.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Zwanze 2012 Sample@Quintessence 2014. Lambic à la rhubarb, super bon à boire qui offre un nez très fruité, suret, léger caramel, levure argileuse. Le corps malté est assez doux, rond sur une longueur moyenne développe un leger sirupeux: c’est du jus de rhubarbe suret réhaussé de saveurs maltées, légerment salées et peu amères. Super bien équilibré entre le fruit, le maltage et l’acidité assez fine en l’occurence. Assez moelleux et gouleyant.
