375 ml bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a snifter. Earthy citrus aromas with hints of pear and white wine vinegar. Sour and dry on the palate with a nice slightly fruity and sour finish. Great stuff!

Very earthy and complex, even though oak is not a prominent flavor, it is more detected in Cantillon’s Gueuze than others.

Slightly citrusy with big barnyard and funk, not super sour and very nice mouthfeel for a gueuze.

Had several vintages of it, and fresh I think this isn’t among the best, but when aged it improves drastically - 9, 6 and 3 year old are on a whole other level than fresh.

Ya llevo unas cuantas y cada vez me gustan mas. Sabor acido pero no muy astringente. Olores a sidra o champang.

A lot of green apples, vinegar and a distinct sourness. I usually like cantillon alot, but this time i got a bit dissapointed. Its a bit to anonymous, don’t know if it was a bad bottle or what?

Botella de 375 compartida con mis padres. Color melocotón pajizo. Espuma de media baja formación y cero persistencia. Aromas a sidra, champagne, madera, algo herbal, (en global me recuerda un poco al aceite de freír chuletillas jajajaja)...en boca textura aquosa- aceitosauna pasada de matices...los mismos q en aroma pero mas complejos, tb aparece algunos q recuerdan a queso!!! Final astringente Birrote!!

Gueuze de libro. Se repite la historia. Repito mis sesiones. Jamás me decepciona, especialmente últimamente, cuando noto menos su acidez y más sus matices, más su complejidad. Algo hace clic en mi cabeza: ahora entiendo porqué para el entendido es un gran estilo.

Some kind of lemon aroma with a little barnish hint. Clear with a adequate head. Sour with dry finisz. Very good example of Gueze.
