2007 Courtesy boboski. Pours raspberry red with a thin reddish white head. Sour berry aroma, not big, very subtle. Dry blueberry sour taste. Wonderful carbonation. Finishes dry with a hint of the sour berry. Very light mouthfeel, very exotic and different.

Sampled at the famous backroom tasting at the Cellars, Roseville. Can’t remember which vintage it was. It ws wonderful. The aroma was soured berry. Years ago I would have vomited and dumped this out but now I just can’t help sniffing and sniffing. I love sour fruit.

Wow, the Blueberry aromas are blowing out of the bottle as soon as it was popped – 37,5cl 2007 – Beautiful deep Danish mailbox red body with a huge fine bubbled dark pink head; Incredible nose that only has one small drawback and it is a very little lack of power, there where actually more aroma when the bottle was popped (the aroma is bigger then in almost every Geuze, I just expect a lot). What there is is great, deep, complex and incredibly balanced. Danish blueberry is not a powerful aromatic berry and I guess that is why it fits so well in the Geuze, the clear soft aroma of the blueberry meat meets the sharper fruity aromas of the geuze perfectly and the earthy aroma of the small flower at the tip of the blueberry meet the barrel aroma of the Geuze perfectly. Great choice of berry, great nose; The body is perfect, a little softer and fuller then the usual very sharp body of the geuze from Cantillon, it has a great big soft small bubbled carbonation and a very clear acid bite, both a little soft from the fruity blueberry but also citric sharp, perfect; It moves smoothly into a very long finish that starts with even more blueberry aromas then in the nose, strangely enough the blueberry skin is very present here, a very mellow acid bite moves along side a little sweetness into lots of late barrel and overripe apple aromas. Great beer, so very, very near prefect that the small flaws shoudnt even be mentioned. Thanks!!

Dark magnificient purple-red colour, completely opaque, slightly fading white head leaving a gentle ring. I’ve had this beer 4 times this past summer. I was less enthusiast 3 times, but found it very lovely indeed the fourth. One can’t deny the subtlety and agility with which the fruit is integrated. Its firm citric smell hides the blueberries nicely.Frankly, I smell some berries, but I’d be hard-pressed to name blueberries at this point. Meanwhile, the usual Cantillon shouting yeastiness seems less sharp than usually. The carbonation is fully there though, clenasing and pointy. Leafy, lemony palate with tight citrus acidity and soured hay. Tart blueberries can at times be mistaken from cranberries. Too tart to be juicy. Barny ending with pencil shavings astringency. Very sharp, but it fits. A wonderful experiment. Thanks Jeppe.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sample from 2007 bottle courtesy boboski. Deep purple-red color with light pink head. Smells awesome - freshly pulpy blueberry aroma over a light perfumy dose of musk. The blueberry presence is evident on the nose and the funk and fruit aromas compliment each other exquisitely, and the same can be said for the taste. The sourness is mild for a Cantillon, with the blueberry flavors coming out upon initial taste, but also appearing in the finish along with the sour. I’m not really a blueberry fan, but this brew utilizes the berry character with restraint and the result is a unique, outstanding beer. Thanks bobo, for the opportunity to try this.

Dark opaque raspberry color. Aroma is very tart and woody. Very nice pucker factor. Fruity (but not really getting blueberry) w/ grass. Finishes dry. Very nice!
