3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle, from Geers or Cantillon directly, can’t remember. Labeled "Cuvée Saint-Gilloise". Poured in classic "Ginder Ale" glass. Pours dusty orange, minimal firm head. Sour nose, dusty attic, grassy manure, green apples and sour candy. Keep trying to smell the hops but can’t find any in there. Aroma is lipsmacking Cantillon tartness and funk. Very astringent, but I’m not the most seasoned geuze drinker. Obviously mostly sour, but there are worse out there. Palate is good, quenching, dry but not puckering. Would like to taste a more thoroughly dryhopped version.

Glass at Cantillon. Cuvee Saint-Gilloise
Bright gold with a lemony & hayloft aroma. Tart lactic, mildly acidic on a softly carbonated med-light body. Good but I preferred the Faro. Cool being served by Jean though.
