HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Original bottle courtesy of...Brian at Zwanze Day, also 2012 vintage. Tart red fruit, though not detectable as rhubarb because the flavor of rhubarb is kind of naturally overlapped with the flavor of a lambic in the first place, highish carbonation level, funk more detectable on the old bottling versus in your face sourness on the new. Very good but lacks the oomph of a LP Kriek or St. Lamvinus.

2012 bottle at the brewery. Very easy drinking, with medium-low sourness, only barely noticeable rhubarb. Rather crisp fresh citrusy fruitiness. Very good.

Cantillon tasting at the Sovereign. Bottle into a wineglass showing moderately filtered dark orange with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows funky and wild notes of barnyard and brett with very light rhubarb notes. The palate is moderately but smoothly carbonated and medium bodied. Moderately tart with flavors very light rhubarb in the background.

onceblind (8211) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Hazy golden hue under a thin white foam cap. Great big earthy funky tart aroma with light strawberry and semisweet wild nuances. Very delightful but refrained flavor of strawberry and funky earthy tones and a light bit of tartness. Mild acidity and big funk and Belgian earthy blonde guezue tones.
