Bottle at cantillon, an odd mix of flavors, heavy triple,malts, yeast and lambic barnyard, a very unique mix

Habanero (2449) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2014
Tap. Pours hazy and deep golden body with a small white head. Aroma of grapefruit, brett, barnyard, funk and caramel notes. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and average carbb. Sour flavor that ends up dry and tart. An excellent Sour

75cl, as Abbaye de Cureghem, no mention of ABV, new exclusive blended brew Anno 2013, thx alot to Secret Santa!, very complex sour brew, woody/sour/fruity and slightly malty/bitter, balanced, cloudy, good head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

Keg @ Moeder and bottle @ the brewery. Since I had the beer at Zwanze last year it has really gone for a pleasant ride. Malty, earthy and abbey yeasty more than tart, sour and funky. When it opens up after some airing you are allowed into the inner circle where the sourness is allowed and you find room for development. Is aging well.

mmahut (900) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 12, 2014
Hazy gold amber body with creamy small head. Aroma has a lot of fruits, mostly berries, caramel, strawberries. Taste has light sourness, blackberries, astringent on the tongue, malty sweetness support. Body is full, medium carbonation.

gendv138 (1000) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2014
From notes. Draft during the Zwanze Day 2013 event at ChurchKey. Pours a dark reddish brown with off-white head. Aromas of tart fruit, vinegar, funk, citrus. Tasting notes of tart fruit, sour notes, vinegar, some bitterness, grapefruit citrus. Medium body with a dry finish. Probably my least favorite Cantillon that I’ve had, the tripel/lambic thing didn’t really work for me.

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2014
Draught AND bottled try Medium, dense head, off-white over fully hazy, orange-amber beer. Strange UFO’s in the bottled version. Rather spicy, horseblanket, old lambic and old grains or ditto cookies, wet wood. Lambic, but mildly so, lemon and other citrus (orangerind?). There’s a faint bitterish-spicy thread, nowhere disturbing, just making it interesting. Brett/lambic attenuation - says it all. Feels more carbonated than it looks. Bone dry as befits any Cantillon product. Interesting... in the GOOD sense of the word. Merci pour la bouteille Jean. Le fűt se trouvait qques heures plus tard @ Moeder Lambic...

Sampled at Zwanze Day 2013 celebration @ Alewife NYC. A very interesting, earthy brew with more yeastiness than sour. Slight funk on the palate. A curiosity, enjoyable to try during the festivities.
