Cantillon Mamouche



Cantillon in Brussels, Brussels Capital Region, Belgium 🇧đŸ‡Ș

Lambic Style - Untraditional Winter
ABV: 5.0% IBU: - Ticks: 133
Two-year-old Lambic in which elderberry flowers have been soaked.

The character of the elderberry flowers lends this beer a very pronounced, floral taste that is nevertheless very refreshing.

Since 2008, once a year Cantillon Brewery has produced Zwanze, a special-edition beer that is completely different each time around, with Mamouche originally appearing as Zwanze 2009. This beer is completely different from anything else produced by Cantillon, and we decided to continue producing it on a regular basis. Mamouche is what the seven grandsons of the Van Roy-Cantillon family call their grandmother, Claude Cantillon. As such it is the counterpart of the Lou Pepe beers.

Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Herbs and what I assume is elder flower aromas. Sour and tart with classic Cantillon citrus/lemon notes and some herbal/floral additions. Not my favorite Cantillon, but still a very nice beer.

EB from last Saturday. A very good elderflower lambic but compared to the home blends it comes off as a hint dull at this age. Give it some time to develop that really cheesy vintage Mamouche character.

Bottled 28 may 2020. Unclear golden with no head. Sour grapes, herbal elderflower, nettles, deep dive into herbal juicism. This is the king of beers.

Bottle. Very flowery, lovely balance with the lambic. Classic mamouche.

Still mostly a lambic, being woody, dry, fairly sour for a Belgian one. The elderflowers really add something, though, making it quite floral (duh), and maybe even a bit summery? Quite fun, very friendly. Hippielambic.

2018. Enormous thanks Stefan! Murky orange-golden. Brett, bell peppers, very mild elder. Flat bell pepper taste, bitterish, astringent. Sorry, not working. At all.
