UPDATED: APR 2, 2009 Botella. Belgian beer no. 600. Courtesy of Anker, thanks! Rather cloudy deep amber golden colour. Lovely tart fruity citrus aroma (in the Cantillon way). Good rather mild tart fruity and yeasty flavour with citrus and barn. Well balanced geuze.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2010 Re-rate 1999 bottle.
Wow what a pour !!
Hazy golden with a huge champagne like white head, that sticks forever.
The pour is followed by a lovely round aroma dominated by oak with a sweet, leather and dusty note. Perfectly balanced.
Pleasant mouthful, a little sour at first, then a little ripe grape, leather and oak.
I’m so glad that I brought a crate of this.
Changed from 9-4-8-3-16
Pours hazy golden with a small white head.
Aroma is hay, dry citrus and stable.
Flavor is dry citrus, with dusty notes and a smooth aftertaste.
Well balanced - nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
In the bottle from Beertopia. Dated 22 January 2004. Pours a hazy deep straw gold with a thick white head. The aroma is acidic and has an odd burning rubber/asphalt scent. Tar-like. The flavor is super tart and once that sourness saturates your palate, there is not so much in other anticipated complexities. I guess I just don’t get it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by mmtmatrix. Poured a clear yellow-orange color with a thick 2 inch head that faded to a bubbly layer and left some spotty lacing. Aroma of tart, funky barnyard yeastiness with hints of horse blanket and some acidic fruit (citrus and berry). Tart, crisp entry with some moderate acidity with hints of berry leading into a barnyard yeastiness with hints of horse blanket that finishes dry. Moderate carbonation and spritzy mouthfeel. Good stuff.
