On tap at Ngne , Zwanze Day. It pours an unclear deep candy red body under a small dark pink head leaving nice curtains. Lots of raspberry in the aroma, with a deep blueberry scent, lemony, leathery funk and a wee touch of vanilla. Its sour and tart on the palate, full-bodied, surprisingly full-bodied for a lambic actually, with a pleasant carbonation level. Really smooth on the palate, even though its this sour. Leather, lemon and barnyard in the back, with raspberries dominating. Heavy blueberry flavor in the back, with a vanilla touch so weak I doubt Id noticed if I didnt know it was there. Eternal finish. A really fantastic beer, the blueberries really plays a significant role here. 161001

Mortlach (2330) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 17, 2017
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a f (Rome). Bellissimo rubino sangue di piccione con riflessi porpora, schiuma rosata media, molto persistente. Naso pulitissimo, meraviglioso aroma di lamponi, more, mirtilli, leggera nota di vaniglia appena percepibile. In bocca magnificamente bilanciata, complessa, mediamente acida, fruttata e fresca, irrobustita con note di vaniglia e una dolcezza bilanciata che la rendono incredibilmente elegante e ruffiana. Corpo medio, carbonazione leggera. Raffinatissima!

Bottle at source. Almost creamy intensely pink burgundy head, dark ruby red color. Intense aroma of berries and berry seeds of raspberris and somewhat not yet ripe blueberries. Only slightest notes of the vanilla lambic (which in itself is amazing), but then agaim it is used to build the backbone and not flavor itself. Nice mouthfeel and flavors have a better and more clear mix of raspberries and blueberries. Not too funky, balanced sourness and gentle tartness at the end. Drink it fresh.

Zwanze 16 drank at the scource on 161119 Pours ruby red with a purple note and a fluffy, bright pink head. Smells of old wood and a light funkiness which gets overruled by ripe, sweet raspberries, which got the most jammy quality I have so far experienced in a Cantillon Lambic. Scented wood with a nice vanilla nuance mingles into a stone fruit earthiness, creating a very intriguing fruit composition. Soft on the tongue with a fitting carbonation, adding a nice crispness to the fruits, while the mouthfeel maintains its silkness throughout. Easy drinking with a sweetness, which gets almost matched by the berry tartness. On the taste, the beer starts with raspberries, initially not unlike the Ros de Gambrinus, until it gets accompanied by flowery sweet vanilla, finding a well fitting interaction in the old oak, which creates a soft rusticness. This revolts against the refreshing fruit acidity, evolving from a stone pit earthiness with raspberry jam on top. It finishes with a dominating, yet pleasant fruitiness which has by now overcome its wooden antagonist for the most part, while its lively tartness maintains the ability to cut through. Overall I dont think the vanilla addition is overly substantial, it almost prevents the beer from developing its usual complexity, since it cuts off the oak to a certain degree, replacing it by a unneccesary sweetness. Dont get me wrong, its sweetness is never coming close to being artificial on the tongue, it just does not provide the greatness of the Ros (which, to be fair, is one of my all time favourites).
