Bottle at the ba buffalo bottle share. Oh you fucking brittle cork. Finally pushed in with a quick spray. Causes chaos, a mess, beer spilling. Finally in the glass as light golden. My shirt is wet. Light funk, tart. Not as acidic as others. Excellent.

50 Batch 2 from 2013. Decent sample at a bottle share. Nice clear pour, looks bronze with no head at all. Nose is interesting. A lot sweeter and more mild than regular gueuze. Almost armagnac on the nose. I get some candy as well with papaya. Taste is interesting. Loads of tartness, the 2 years of time in barrels gives this a hearty oakiness with sugary Liqueur sweetness of oranges, caramel and lemons. Hearty body, and very drinkable. It’s quite nice but I prefer classic gueuze.

Original batch, courtesy of Ryan. Another Cantillon I’m not the hugest fan of, somewhat heavy on the palate with a cognac flavor and a bit of weird sweetness, lacks the creative fruity quality I really like in a good Cantillon. I think Cantillon does amazing fruit lambics but their Gueuzes generally (GENERALLY) fall behind DF.

Pours a glowing orange color. Aromas of oak, candied citrus peel, mild funk, and straw. The palate is a bit heavier than most Cantillons, with flavors of oak, Cognac spirit, tart lemon, and light spice/heat, maybe some light balsamic vinegar. Finishes dry and acidic.

Batch #1 Bottle care of Barry. Pours clearish orange with light lace and head that wasn’t lasting. Heavy notes of barn funk, rich wood, florals, dry fruit, and very restrained cognac which was great. Cognac can get too aromatic or perfumey but this one was super light letting the vtg gueuze profile shine. Other notes of lemon rind, apple, leather, and horseblanket. Body was very silky and soft with lighter carbonation. We had this next to an 09 blabaer, but I think I might like this slightly better....even got a second pour of a couple ounces....Score!

75cl bottle from La Cave à Bulles in Paris. I’m not only celebrating my graduation from Siebel’s Master Brewer Program with this beer, but my retirement from rating. Pours a clear golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sour and acidic with some lemons as well as a nice funk. A light cognac note with some wet wood, apricots, and just a touch of sweetness. Flavor is awesome. Acidic and sour lemons with a good amount of funk, wet wood, a light cognac, a hint of malt sweetness, apricots and peaches, white grapes, and a slight herbal note. Finishes dry and woody with a balanced acidity, a nice fruitiness, and a light cognac warmth. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, light body and a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, an excellent beer. More of a lasting head than most lambics and very well balanced. The wood and cognac play perfectly with the acidity and the bigger ABV% keeps everything in check while maintaining a very easy drinking body. A great beer to go out on.
