3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from beergium.com. Smell is sour, citrusy and has some notes of wild flower. Pours hazy dark orange with a small, quickly dissolving, white head. Taste is a bit salty with a subtle tone of citrus. Sour but easy and drinkable. Palate has some sourness and really sticks to the tongue. Overall a pleasant beer but dosen’t really live up to my expectations of it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light tart lemonade, negligible qualities of funk, yogurt, always tastes kinda like a berliner more than a real gueuze. Definitely one of the lesser straightforward gueuzes that Cantillon produces, but still tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. On tap at Mikkeller Bar SF for Zwanze Day. Surprised to see I have never rated this.
Aroma has some subdued acidity with moderate herbal and earthy funk. Light lemon and orange peel with some hints of tropical fruit.
Pours a cloudy orange with a large white head that displays good retention and light lacing. Non existent legs.
Flavor has medium high acidity with some moderate barnyard funk. Some light herbal and earthy notes. Light citrus and tropical fruit character with a hint of oak.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice vintage and certainly better than the 2013 bottle I recently opened. Nice herbal notes with good, though young acidity.

"different yellow label w/guy falling off his stool...ciderish and funky tart aroma comes out of the popple after it’s popped. lively carbonation but little head. lots of baryard, lemon, granny smiths and funk in the flavor, yet still pretty light on the palate. missing the green olive taste, which is a good thing. if all in the style were like this, i could begin to see what the fuss is all about. pretty steep for a good beer, though."

375ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours light gold with slight haze. Aroma is bright and colourful, taste is hugely complex with berries, spice, vanilla, sour and a constantly evolving sweetness with a dry finish. A beautiful, mesmerising Gueuze.
