GlasgowTAD (71) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Golden and bears a great resemblance to apple juice in the looks department. Short lasting head. Smell is lemon/lime. Taste is tart, sour and lime. Had this on tap at Moeder Lambic and much prefer it to bottled version; as it is not as harsh and pretty easy to drink.

neongolden (468) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
(On tap at barVolo for Zwanze Day 2014, Sept 20 2014) Pours lightly hazed gold with a medium white head, lace. Aroma of sour pear, slightly rotten fruit, earth and light wood, funny salty buttered lobster aroma (!) over top, a little vinegar. Palate has loads of vinegar, lemon, crabapple, Brett barnyard, herbs restrained but lots of wood from mid-palate on, a bit of old bittering hop medicinal dryness. Lingering acetic acid. Actually rather funky throughout. Medium body with high active carb. I feel like this is one of the most acidic, earthy and funky of the Cantillon beers. There is a ton going on but it’s not as soothing and perfectly integrated as some of the others.

markschiedon (227) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2014
Drinking from tab at Borefts festival 2014. The aroma is like sniffing a glass with champaign. The unclear golden-orange beer has a small white head. The taste is mainly sour. Some bitter underneath. Medium carbonated.

Bottle version. Sour apple nose. Lime tart flavor, vinegar, dry sour finish. A quite well-rounded gueuze, pretty silky and accessible.

500ml bottle served in a chalice. A: Pours a hazy yellow to beige color forming a big, white and bubbled head. Medium to low retention and many bubbled lacings left in the glass S: Very fruity in the nose. Lambic yeasts. Grains, oak and vinegar and some notes of white wine T: Complex. Sour, acid and extremely dry. Fruits (grapes), oak, Lambic style yeasts, vinegar, grains and, again, some notes of white wine M: Light body, low ABV and high carbonation. Fruity ans sour aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Classic Gueuze. Quite sour but a Cantillon after all [ BA Review @ 8/7/2010 ]

Zoret (98) - Badalona, SPAIN - OCT 14, 2014
Cervesa àmbar amb toc taronja, aromes fruitats complexos com de poma i pera. En boca es àcida peró també una mica dolça i amarga, boníssima!

fedexs (15) - ITALY - OCT 11, 2014
At the apparence gold beer with really light foam. Mix of flavours at the nose while its sour taste it is persistant with citric notes. This is a great belgian gueuze in which the sour taste is the greater one, nice to drink also during lunch. Cantillon is always a warranty.

AbouAli (25) - Genève, SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Blond-jaune pâle, petite mousse qui dure longtemps. Nez de brett typique de Cantillon, avec une petite fraîcheur pour une gueuze. Goût reste léger et pas si agressif que la moyenne. Un classique, une espèce d’étalon pour les autres gueuze.
