Clear Golden pour with a rather dense head. Head is lasting. Nose has whitewine, lemon, candy barley. Taste: The barrels has big influense on the taste and the abv is more present in the beer than usual for cantillon. Mix between riesling and gueuze. Very complex with a nice aftertaste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750ml corked and tapped bottle served in a tulip glass.
Review #1000! Special occasion -> Special Beer! Bottled in 2012.
A: Pours a clear golden yellow color in the beginning (end is very cloudy) forming a small thin bubbled white head that dissipates quickly leaving only very few lacings in the glass.
S: Delicious Lambic nose. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, vinegar, fruits, wood and light flowery hops. Notes of leather. Some metallic notes too. White grapes, apples and apricot... Cognac...
T: Slightly sweet upfront: Notes of sweet pale malts and acid fruits. Strong notes of white grapes, apricot and wood. Apple vinegar. Quite smooth and light sour for a Cantillon Gueuze. Light hops bitterness. Notes of leather with same metallic notes in the very end. The only negative point is that the taste is not very persistent.
M: Medium body. Low carbonation. Fruity, sour and woody aftertaste.
O: Absolutely drinkable. Just another Cantillon masterpiece.
