UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 One of my least favorite Cantillon offerings, probably because it’s not a lambic and instead has this weird sweet fruit/bitter rind combo flavor that I couldn’t get into. Pass.

On tap at Redlight Redlight on 9/14/2013. Hazy orange body. Pushing reddish. Thin collar. Not much of a head. Acidic aroma. Very musty. A little wine-like. Malty. Seems like a slight burnt caramel aroma too. Bright sour flavor. Wine flavors persist here. White wine. Oak. Malty again. The burnt flavors are replaced by bitterness. Grassy bitterness in the finish. The bitterness is off-putting, as it is very strong. Not crisp like most Cantillon beers. The bar is set so high for Cantillon, so it’s tough to objectively judge this. It’s good but definitely not up to the standards of a Cantillon fruit lambic.

MarcoDL (4149) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle at Cantillon. Aroma of barley, old hops and oak. Taste is dry and malty, bit like a sour barley wine, with old hops and lots of tart. Not the best Cantillon, but still interesting.

djd07 (10018) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2016
On tap at Avenue Pub. Pours a cloudy orange with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is funk, leather, brett, lemon zest. Medium body, earth, funk, lemon, orange peel, wood, light tartness, very good.

rlgk (18205) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle at Cantillon, Brussels. Clear copper/amber beer with a nice beige head. Malty caramel aroma, grapes, tart, vinous, some floral notes. Sour fruity caramel flavor, grapes, raisins, yeasty notes, floral and herbal. Odd and not the best Zwanze.

GrumpyOldTroll (58) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Pours a dark Amber color and the nose is berries and dark fruit. Taste is not very tart; mostly sweet and grainy.

MrOrla (2243) - Odense C, DENMARK - APR 29, 2016
Bottle @ cantillon. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of green tea, oxidized hops, herbal, like an old dipa, barley, dried fruits. It’s a mess.

Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 29, 2016
Bottle at Cantillon. Hazy dark golden with a lasting white head. Malty aroma with herbal and funky notes. Malty flavour with a little caramel, fruit and funk. At the same time hoppy bitter and lambic tart, and it’s not working out well.

Rask0lnikov (751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 20, 2016
Amber colour. Nice white head. Apples, raisins, sherry, muscat wine, strong black tea in the aroma. Vinegar at first, reminds tea which is made from roseberries, hints of sherry, bitter, white wine finish.

Bottle @ Cantillon 15/5-15. Fruity, dried fruity with some cheese, also brett. Dry finish with some bitterness.
