4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle. Hazy gold with a big white head. Big lemony, brightly acidic and dusty, musty Brett aroma. Very sour and dry like fizzy water with half a lemon in it. Lots of bright citrus and a little grassy earth in the finish. Dry, light bodied, and highly carbonated. maybe a little more lemony than classic gueuze, but pretty similar. Don’t get much from the dry hops, but this bottle has to have some age on it my now. Very nice, very refreshingly sour lambic.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Cantillon Cuvée des Champions) As Cantillon Cuvee Saint-Gilloise, 750 ml bottle at home, served into a tulip, ABV 5%
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.
Nice floral aromas, some light grapes and wine-y notes as well.
Very sour taste, at least during the first sips, floral notes, light cork/wood, grapes, very nice.
Thin body with good carbonation, very refreshing with a light tartness on the palate.

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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Saint Gilloise, bottled January 7, 2013. Pours a clear orange-gold with very small head that subsides. Aroma is very musty, spicy, and earthy, with spicy hops, cork, cedar, and citrus peel mingling with Mediterranean herbs, grass, peach, lemon zest, and autumn leaves. Taste is vinous and juicy but austere, with white wine, orange, and grain fading into serious oak and spicy/bitter hops, with a balanced sourness and faint fruitiness. Finish is quite tannic, with pronounced barrel notes. Fairly low carbonation. Very good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl bottle as Saint Gilloise. Light golden with bubbly white head that leaves a nice looking ring of bubbles. Sour lemon, lemon peel, light grainy and funk, hay. Lots of German style hops, light green raw veggies. Light sour taste with a bitter touch, light sour finish. Great balance and the hops work really well here. Beautiful and complex beer. Love it.
