3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2008 Rerate, 750mL bottle, 2006 vintage, courtesy of ryan. Thanks! Pours a hazy, golden-tan color; very light tan head with solid, creamy retention and fine-bubbled lacing; very solid pour. Shows a ton of funk at the front of the aroma, followed by loads of lemony citrus, grapefruit, and lots of lively, zesty tartness; generous nose. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: high levels of acidity and lemony sourness; zesty, spritzy; impressively generous citrus / lemon and funkiness, but just a touch too acidic / citrus-driven to stay especially drinkable. Still very good. Lengthy, sour finish: tart lemons, mineral bitterness, and lingering acidity.
RBSG 06. Lightly clouded grapefruit appearance, with sour cherries and grapefruit/citrus in the nose. Mouthfeel shows tartness, funk, citrus, and (third time’s a charm) grapefruit. Medium finish. 220.127.116.11.16=4.0

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-gold body with a small white head. The aroma is heavy on orange and citrus, wheat, and funky breadiness. Very wheaty and refreshing flavour. Lots of citrus twang - quite dry, noticeable soft bitterness, earthy bread, and a touch of funkiness. The tartness is felt in the cheeks. Nice, I’d like to give this another try at some point.
Sampled at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation on May 28, 2006.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Vintage: Bottled in 2004. This was fantastic, a great gueze, even though it was only a two year blend vs. a three year. Poured a slight amber yellow color with a nice initial head that didn’t lace great. Aroma was burnt rubber and some citrus, lots of funk going on. The flavor was solid, lots of citrus, tart, funky, barnyard, and a light wheaty base. This was really nicely done. Lots of tart. Acidic mouthfeel. I’m a fan of these things. Never woulda thunk it.

Bottled. Man, what a strange brew with all the leather and barnyard lacking all other flavors I like so much in a geuze. Just little sourness and oak. Weak and no complexity. I’m afraid I still gave it such high score because I knew it was Cantillon I was drinking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden in color with a slight haze and a medium white head. Hoppy aroma which I found really unusual for a lambic, with mild acidity.Citrus hops,bitter yet sour. One of Cantillon’s most interesting offerings.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy pale orange appearance with a small dissapearing white head. Fresh acidic lemon aroma with notes of barnyard, green apple-skins, flowers and grapefruit. Acidic flavour of grapefruit, Granny Smith apples, hay and a subtle tone of hops. Bone dry finish of grapefruit, wood and grass. Damn good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bright, fruity aroma, strawberries, pears, flowers, hints of wet hay, horse blanket, and that special cantillon funk. Clear golden color, thin white head. High acidity, fresh apples and pears, a little banana, fresh flowers, just a hint of hop bitterness. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation (quite low for the style), crisp, dry finish. A very nice gueuze, complex, however the flavors are pleasantly rounded-out, not as intense as some others from Cantillon.
