Cantillon Reine des Prés is a lambic with meadowsweet (French: Reine des Prés, litereally Queen of the Meadows) added. It was first bottled in 2015 in 75cl bottles, and the ABV is unknown.
The original batch of Reine des Prés bottled in 2015 has not been released for sale publicly due in part to the meadowsweet being extremely strong. This batch was bottled for a restaurant in Brussels called Bouchéry as a food pairing lambic. A second batch was bottled in June 2017 and was released as one part of an exlusive six pack of beers for the BXLBeerFest in August 2017.
Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria) has been traditionally used in various stews, wines, beers, meads, vinegars, and other beverages due to its pleasant, somewhat sweet taste. The plant (or various parts of it) have also been used in traditional medicine to treat various ailments and contains chemicals used to make aspirin.
