From Cantillon on this year’s Zwanze

“My youngest son, Sylvain, will be 18 come October. As we did for his older brother, Florian, I wanted to celebrate this milestone by dedicating a beer to him. And what better beer than the Zwanze. 

I wanted to involve Sylvain in choosing the beer, and when I asked him what blend we could make. He told me: “ I love iced tea, could we try a blend with tea?”.

After a superb tasting of several different types of tea at “Nong Cha” tea shop in the center of Brussels, we chose three teas for trial blends with Lambics. 

After a few days of maturation with 2 years old Lambic, we decided on a “Oolong” (Wulong), a semi-fermented blue-green tea. 

The Lambic-tea blend gave a great result. The beer was delicate and round, with notes of fruit and slight bitterness. 

Sylvain is a huge fan of “Game of the Thrones” which inspired the graphics for the 2017 edition of our Zwanze. 

But in our version, no one dies and everyone has a good beer!

The Zwanze Day will take place on Saturday 23rd of September 2017!”
