4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 2006. Labeled as Classic Gueuze. This gueuze pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 375ml bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is tart, must, horse blanket, leather and funk. A medium bodied gueuze, Malts are fruity, despite all the tart/sour and funk in this beer. Tart, dry, sour and funky but there is a nice malt flavor underneath all that funk. Lively carbonation. Bone dry finish yet there is some fruitiness right at the end. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 Very full body out of the bottle. Sour, sweet, wood, and tart flavors seem to swirl together at start, taste and finish. This is a very difficult beer to describe, must be tasted!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased for $5.49 from a retailer closing out a "slow seller." Bottled in 2003. Pale gold in color with the classic, fat-bubbled, white head with aggressive carbonation bubbles rising through the body. Aroma is absolutely inundated with acetobacters that almost take your breath away like malt vinegar sprayed on fish&chips. It is a challenge in itself and is classic Cantillon aroma. Besides that, there is some warmed honey, damp earth, and bubblegum. Flavor is bracing. It is tart enough to wake a person in a coma. The components of the beer-malt, wheat seed, and water are all there but are a distinctly different experience than the funky, tart yeast going on at the same time. Not as integrated as it could be.
