Hazy, straw color and small head. Medium intensive aroma of sourness, acid apple, wheat and horse blanket. Taste is minimal sweet, medium to heavy sour and medium to heavy dry. High carbonation. Medium body. Very refreshing, sour and well balanced gueze. Very good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2015 1e Cantillon, die ik proef, Gueuze 100% Lambic Bio, uitgeschonken in Cantillon degusteer glaasje. Goudgele, honingachtige iets troebele kleur, met kleine en dunne witte schuimkraag die snel wegtrekt, een dunne ring van schuim blijft op het bier drijven. De geur is bijzonder, witte wijnachtig, bierkelder/barnyard, hooi, citroengras, zelfs ook kaasachtige aroma's. De smaak is complex, de eerste tonen zijn behoorlijk zuur en kort daarop vrij bitter. Door de behoorlijke carbonatie heeft het iets weg van brut champagne, maar dan met meer zuur en bitter erin. Tonen van citrusfruit; citroen, limoen en grapefruit. Witte wijnazijn en wat houtige tonen, met een zeer droge en subtiel bittere hopfinish. Fraai en erg mooi gebalanceerd Gueuze Lambic bier, ik ben benieuwd naar de andere Cantillon varianten die ik ook nog in het wijnrek heb liggen. De Gueuze blijft een bijzondere biersoort en deze Cantillon is een perfecte keuze voor de liefhebber van deze artisanale bieren. Een bezoek aan de brouwerij staat zeker ook op de planning als ik in Brussel ben.

37.5cl bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour with a thin white head. Sour, brett and acid citrus in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is a multi layered experience with tart notes and some acid feeling. Overall, a good lambic.

Rosslew (320) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2015
Beautifully aromatic with a sourish lemon tickle up nose. Undoubtedly tart but not harsh and there is some citrus sweetness later. But it tickled the tongue. To be shared. Oh so good. 3std drks, 750bottle, 5% ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle (375ml) at Porch Nite thanks to Raith which he purchased at the brewery. Pours a clear yellowish with a very thin head. High carbonation. Aroma is lemons, tartness, slight hay and lemongrass. Flavor follows and is lemony and quite tart. Finishes really dry. A very nice beer.
