4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml capped and corked bottle, back label says bottled 24 September 2012, best before September 2022. Labeled as Cuvée St-Gilloise. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, it’s smells like apricots, hay, funk, citrus peel and some peppery spice. The brew tastes like citrus (mostly lemon) peel, hay, funk, bready/grainy malt, oak, peppery spice, earthy/floralness, and some white grapes. There’s a nice mix of tartness, fruitiness, and funky/earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s smooth and easy to drink with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was good, definitely worth picking up if you come across some!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light golden with a fizzy white head and decent lacing. Aroma of lemon and cheesy hops with some wild barnyard and oak. Taste is slight tart and lemony with mild pepper and some oak and slight hop character in the finish. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Really good Geueze with well integrated flavors. Pairs well with sharp cheeses.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color is a clean golden color with a finger of white fluffy head. Smell is funky barnyard, perm, chemical, lemon. Taste is sour rush with some lemon, oak, barnyard funk. Very dry, washes away the sour. Some more of the oak at the end and a little cheese and bread and a very small amount of caramel malt at the end. A well done brew that's hard to peg flavor wise. The majority is the sour barnyard with an old cheese like hops. But those flavors work.

Golden orange colour on the body, bright and just a tad hazy, with a tall white head, with okay retention, leaving light lacing around the glass.

Vinatge 2014, en fût. Très funky. Une gueuze avec un excellent côté exotique. Très savoureux. Une de mes meilleures de Cantillon jusqu’à maintenant. Reste à comparer avec la version bouteille qui se fera sous peu.
