75cl bottle, 2003 Vintage, thanks Dickinsonbeer. Cloudy amber body with small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, horseblanket, lactic acid, fairly sharp. Taste is mild sweet, lactic acid, berry fruitiness. Smooth light-medium body, light acidity, actually a bit creamy.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is very sour - vinegar. Flavor is medium sweet and very sour. Sour and dry finish. This is rather one-dimensional with the very sour vingear dominating. Fortunately I like that. 110311

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Jimmyís No. 43 during a Lovullo Tasting Session. Pours a cloudy, honey gold with a modest white head. Grassy aroma, some barnyard, some florals and tartness. Flavor is tart and crisp, with more grass, sunflower and dandelion. (Yes, I know what those plants taste like.) Soft, tiny bubble carbonation. Some lemon and oak notes. Quite acidic in the finish, and dry with more flowers and earth. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml. bottle. A nice Bret type aroma combined with honey. A sour whiff. The color is a light orange gold with a white head that ringed. A bit thin bodied. The carbonation is very mild. The flavor is primarily lactic sour. There are varying fruit notes, to accompany the earthy, Bretty, funkiness. Could be old mushrooms or sweat sox. Very interesting. Not an everyday drink, I think. Refreshing in an unusual way.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Yellow, lasting bubbly white head. Nice geuze aroma of leather, wood, barnyard, hint of malt. Classic Cantillon house flavour, best described as grapefruit peel in a leather cover. The definitive Cantillon, and I love it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle, from Kolding Vinhandel. Bio. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a fine medium white head. Flavour is a little underwhelming, sour berries and vinegar. Flavour is fresh and quite tart. Sour and fruity. This lambic feels up my mouth nicely. Fresh and lively, but very much a lambic in the oldfashioned sense.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 25.4oz bottle-pours a thin white head and yellow color. Aroma is first grassy, then overwhelming moldy cheese, barnyard-I smell the cows, then Joe read the label! After warming: grassy, overwhelming moldy cheese, barnyard, light fruit, yeast. Taste is citric acid-lemon, green apple, then tart/sour and sweet, vinegar. Vinegar overrides all else. Probably a great beer to some tastes, not mine. Thanks jwc215 for sharing. 1.8 *121201-750ml bottle @RLRL-thin white-hazy gold. A-funk, lt malt, brett. T-tart/acidic, lt malt, fruit, funk.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: A 750 ml bottle with a bottling date of 2008 shared with the girlfriend. A pour into my Bruery tulip is a burnt orange color with very little head and quite a bit of bubbles.
S: Now this is a funky beverage. A ton of Brett character with a tinge of lactic sourness and oak.
T: As funky as the nose is, thatís how sour it is on the tongue. There is a lot of lactic tartness and itís very acidic. Thereís a bit of lemon flavor and a lot of Brett. On the finish is a fair bit of oak.
M: Surprisingly this is not all that bubbly. Iím used to Gueuze being a very bubbly beverage, but I suppose that could be due to a short maturation period (ie. my fault).
D: This is a very, very acidic beer. As a result, itís tough to drink a lot of. However, it does taste very good, so itís also something you want to drink lots of. A strange dichotomy indeed.
