Bottle @ home 20141115. Aroma of green apples, a little funky, some spices and a hint of grapefruit. Taste is mildly sour, with the same components as in the aroma. A slight astringency. Perfectly well balanced, and so light and refreshing.

Une bouteille de Cuvée Saint-Gilloise en 750ml. C’est perçant d’acidité et de citrons. Il y a bel et bien un côté plus funky, mais le citron est définitivement la note la plus présente dans cette bière. Se boit très bien.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tart can be used as a positive descriptor in this case. Split a large bottle with a few friends recently and all agreed it was the best beer of the day. Complex and interesting, pleasant and thirst quenching. Notes of lemony citrus with hints of woodiness. Nice grainy edge as well. There’s a lot going on here and all of it is very enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample of both 2014 and 2012 bottles at (Hopp)Kurtkeller 016: Cantillon-tastic 01 on 10/11/2014 (as Cuvée Saint-Gilloise). The beer pours a slightly hazed yellow-gold color with a medium foamy white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is citrus, oak and spice. Light-bodied with flavors of funky citrus, oak and grainy malt. The finish is oaky with a tart citrus aftertaste. Solid beer all around.
