Bottle, with chili while the wife was out. Pours a hazy golden color with big pillowy white head. Aroma is musty up front. Some citrus in there and some sour notes. Taste is more musty with medium sour notes, hay and white wine. Overall, great as always with this one but 3F is better.

Simply one of the best examples of tipycal Gueuze. Tough yeasts, heavy sour, astringent and bitter finish

75 cl bottle in a park in paris. Pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head that quickly becomes just a film of head. Beautiful aroma, tart lemon, barnyard, wet hay, some cheesy hops i believe, lemon pie almost, crackers. Flavour is strong tart lemon, white grape peel, tart apples, dried apricots, funky brett. 2014 bottle so still young but very awesome.

Divinity; I think geuzes are the definition of a divine beer. And this one is near perfect. Nice orange beer, creamy white head. Vinegar, sour appels, lemon, grapes it’s al there. It feels round and creamy combined with the champagne like carbobation. And the taste stays around for a long time. Yum.

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.
