My rating: 4
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.15
My ratebeer.com rating: 4.1
Note: I do not know what rhubarb smells or tastes like.
Intro: As Zwanze 2012 version. A 750ml bottle at the brewery. Poured into a Cantillon tasting glass.
Appearance: It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a half finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly and left almost no lacing.
Aroma: Tart, funky and oak with a touch of leather and some fruitiness (which I will assume is rhubarb).
Taste: Sour, tart and funky. Some hay, lemon, grapefruit and a tart fruitiness (which again I will assume is rhubarb).
Mouthfeel: Dry-ish, light bodied with low to moderate carbonation.
Overall: Another nice beer from Cantillon and my first Zwanze. I do kind of wish I tried actual rhubarb first before trying this beer so that I had at least an idea of how close or how strong the rhubarb came through. But in any case, this was still very good.
