MartinT (7860) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 The Lure:
The Cantillon Gueuze signature is definitely present, although it seems to be a bit tired as there is less carbonation to push it. A sugary component also appears to make it distinctive.

The Festivities:
Musky pineapples and orange pulp merge with the lemony tartness, starfruit sourtalks the honey sweetness, as the cask ale feel makes the brettyness feel gentle. This is a white wine/table lambic combo, with subdued tartness and acidity for a Cantillon.

Transcendence:
Dormant from the distance obviously does not prove to be a reliable source in such a case.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy orange, flat as a pancake. Aroma of cheesy feet, wood, acidic apple peel. Salty, woody lemony tart flavour with long acid finish. Excellent.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2010 My first lambic. Wow. I donít even know what to say. I was hoping to like this beer, but... I hated it. Extremely sour. No carbonation. Murky yellow. My palate just couldnít take it.

JoeMcPhee (8466) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2004
Very cloudy golden yellow beer with light carbonation and a thin head. Intense funky horsey aroma typical of Cantillon. Bright citrus, acetic, and lactic acidity in the nose. Musty and dusty aroma. Flavour is much less sour than the aroma would have you believe. Nice tangy flavour, some green apple, a touch of woodiness and a nice sharp acidic finish. Very tasty and well-balanced.

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Aroma: mint, straw, toothpaste, some sweet Ivory soap scents, some mustiness
Appearance: golden, murky yellow, small bubbles, little head
Flavor: sweet honey, tart vinegar, some mint, some rose hips, rasberry vinegarette flavors
Palate: scrapes the back of the tongue and throat, very sweet/floral aftertaste followed by a tart, vinegar bite...yum!
Overall: quite good, a sweeter cantillon

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Upon it disembarking the 750ml green bottle resides in the glass a beclouded straw color with a smallish off white head and the resultant lace a thin but sealing sheet. Nose is tart, with hints of sour apples, citrus like in its crispness; start is dry and sour with the top light. Finish continues the devastatingly tartness, dry as a bleached desert bone, and the aftertaste lingers long, a true lambic loverís brew that you will love or hate, I love it, but beware its not meant for everyone even if you like most lambics.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2004
On tap at the Blind Tiger In NYC. Hazy, golden/orange color with almost no head. Tart, yeasty aroma of grapefruit, and sour apples. Flavor also sour, but not overly so. Hints of grapefruit and other citrus fruits along with a strange, but not unpleasant, copper taste. Finishes beautifully with a crisp, clean aftertaste. I wish I could get more of these beers.
