Jean Van Roy on Zwanze 2012
“Zwanze 2012 is a Lambic mix with rhubarb. The process is the same as our fruit Cuvées like Lou Pepe or Fou’foune. An average of 300g rhubarb per liter Lambic, the mix was made begin July with a 20 months old Lambic. The maturation took 2 months and we bottled the beer on 6th of September. Beer is fruity and dry with a very good balance between the Lambic acidity and the rhubarb acidity, for some flavors, beer is close to rhubarb wines.”
The event starts at 12 noon! Zwanze 2012 tapping is at 2pm. Commemorative Zwanze Day Glasses for sampling (with & without Zwanze) go on sale at 10am on Dec 1st.

Sounds like the glass is what will get you unlimited pours of the other beers, if I'm not mistaken...
Is there an option to drink without buying a limited edition Zwanze glass like last year?
The answer is no.
