My first gueuze!. Nice aroma acetic and sweet. OK apperance, not much head, but then again is there supposed to be? Special taste, but I like it. A bit lactoacid.

bottle labeled as organic gueuze. sweet and acidic aroma, chalky and fruity and musty smell. holy crap that’s sour; like a liquid version of those candies "warheads" that dries up like rubbing alcohol. tingly and complex, and definitely a sipper.

thanks dr. bill and sick_girl282 for these bottles. It’s a cantillon, of course i’m going to love it!!! it smells like musty horseblanket with a slight citrus undertone. the taste is absolutely phenomenal with the perfect sourness and horseblanket flavor! dry and delicious to the last drop. i can’t wait to visit the brewery!

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Pours with an orange-gold body topped by a thin head with little lacing. It’s sour and tart with a nice barnyard note and a touch of lemon. Light bodied, crisp and dry.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2005
2002 vintage. Large foamy white head atop a hazy gold color. Wet rotting vegetation, must, and horseblanket aroma. Bracing sourness that wraps around dusty cobwebs and barnyard flavors. Sourness lingers in the finish, with dried horse manure characters. Mouthfeel is medium light and dry.

bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Bottle. Amber beer with a thin white head. Sweetish malt aroma with a lemon/tart finish. Tart flavor with some sweetness at end. Lemon/grape/green apple fruitiness. Refreshing and dry finish. Not nearly as sour as other Cantillon beers I’ve had.

willblake (2647) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2005
09.01.05 375ml bottle, cork date 2003. Paler orange-golden pour with only a trace of head. Aroma is woody, citrus, burning grass, and barnyard. Interesting ashy notes all over the palate, otherwise acid with a blast of sourness. How does that make sense? Juicy pockets of lemony acidity linger around the mouth. Lots of complex grass flavors: dead, old, mulchy, fresh cut, dandelion and clover.

Tasted this at the Cantillon Brewery, Brussels. Have to confess it wasn’t my all-time favourite. Colour was light, slightly cloudy with a small head. Aroma of apples and vinegar. Taste was very sour and had a bitter aftertaste, more grapefruit than hops. People tell me it’s an acquired taste.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
Robe blonde légèrement voilée. Arômes de liège. Saveurs sûres et acides de pomette. Subtilités intéressantes au niveau des saveurs aigres.
