Cantillon Reine des Prés
This one has certainly some links with the Maouche bottles of cantillon. A bit flowery sweet that gives a quite unique taste and is even better than mamouche in my opnion. Maybe some cellaring would soften the tastes.

Bottle, at the brewery. Honeyed gold. Soft haze. No head. Nose has the familiar Cantillon funk. A bit cheesy and sweaty. Dusty, old wood. Notes of raw rhubarb and rhubarb leaf. Hint of new leather in the background. Taste is tart and tangy. Light sourness. Some salinity, maybe. Turns pretty dry and cleansing. Clean, light mouthfeel. Sharp, fine carbonation. Dry and tart finish. Very nice now, with plenty to come, no doubt.

Cantillon Oude Lambik
Sample of 15 month lambic, poured from a jug at the brewery, after the tour. Pours a clear, golden color, with no head. The aroma is lemon peels, yogurt, leather and a bit of musty attic, and white bread. Off-dry flavor, with a bit of tartness and light funk. Medium body, with an acidic, thick feel, and no carbonation. This is a fun, and illuminating experience, but the beer itself isn't great. Flat, funky, and sharp.

Cantillon Rosé De Gambrinus
Sample from a bottle after the tour at the brewery. Pours a clear, ruby color, with a small, pink head. Sharp raspberries dominate the aromas, with some yogurt, lemon juice, cloves, and gingerbread. Sweet and fruity, with a light and pleasant tart flavor. Light to medium body, with a pleasantly acidic, crisp, and clean mouthfeel. Light and fruity, well balanced, and just lovely.

Cantillon Zwanze (2013) Abbaye de Cureghem
Bottle shared at the brewery. Pours an opaque, yellow color, with a small, off-white head. Vanilla, oak, and booze on the nose. Notes of bitter roots, and licorice. Sweet and boozy, and surprisingly bitter. Medium to heavy body, with a thick, acidic, and warming mouthfeel. This was startling, in middle of all the lambics. Strong, bitter, strange, yet still pretty tasty.

Cantillon Gueuze (Classic/Organic/Bio)
Bottle shared at the brewery. Pours a hazy, straw color, with a small, bubbly, off-white head. Notes of apple, clover honey, Greek yogurt, berries, and sourdough. Lightly tart flavor, with just a touch of bitterness. Light body, with a smooth, lightly acidic, and effervescent mouthfeel. This is a nice, dry, mellow lambic. Simple, but very well made. Just a pleasure to drink.

Bottle shared at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color, with a small, off-white head. The nose is mild, tart rhubarb, black pepper, tart cherries, cloves, and yogurt. Very tart, with a light bitterness. Light body, not terribly acidic, and clean. This is a pretty easy and mellow treatment. Interesting and well made, but not my favorite.

Cantillon Zwanze (2017) Cuvée Bijette
On tap. Pours a cloudy orange/yellow with little head. Aromas of cheesy stoned fruit, creamy tea, a bit of funk and a bit of soft wheat. But also a bit of low tide... Flavors follow same, with the exception of the low tide; creamy fruit with tartness cut by the tea. Actual tea flavor is very subtle. Nice,and interesting.

Cantillon Rosé De Gambrinus
Tart funky aroma with tons of raspberry. One of the prettiest beers I have ever seen, Dark crimson with very little head. Tastes tart with natural raspberry flavor coming through. Light palate with champagne-like carbonation. Very well done; I would like to try more beers from Cantillon although where I live it is very hard to find.
