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.
Bottle at Moeder. Split with the wife. Pour is clean yelliw-gold, lively eggshell head that fades to spotty lace and a ring. Aroma of light lemon peerl, hay, dough, straw, earth, medium rhabarb. Taste is signature Cantillon funk, light earth, rhubarb, sweet grain, light bitter, light sour, nicely balanced wood vs. Citrus. Light lemon, light green apple. Mild acid, finishes medium dry and delicious! Svartvit (574) - NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2017
