Cantillon Zwanze 2010 Blanche de Quenast

While at Monk’s Cafe in Philadelphia for the Pliny the Younger event, my buddy Matt and I decided to order a bottle of Cantillon Zwanze 2010 Blanche de Quenast and share it (the $50 price tag helped encourage sharing). The beer pours a pale and cloudy straw yellow color with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma consists of hay, barnyard funk, grass, lemon, and wheat grass. The taste is funky and dry with bits of hay, straw, and barnyard funk. Hints of lemon and vinegar peek through from the background, and there is an oat and grassy spice on the finish. The alcohol content is 4.0% ABV. This was a wonderfully dry and grassy beer and it feels like drinking while on a farm. I loved its funkiness, and the light citrus accents were well balanced.
