3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle at Akkurat. 2005 cork. It pours a golden/light amber colour with a large white head. Aroma is wood, funky with fruitiness and some spices. Some cheesey and horseblankety notes. Taste is rich with funk again and tartness sorrounded by a sort of yogurt-like sweetness. Citrus and lemon peel notes. Some wood too. Mostly dry finish. Palate is silky, with good carbonation. So easy to drink, I’m glad I had a whole bottle for myself. This is a bit too young maybe, not on par with some older geuzes I’ve tried.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Akkurat. Pours a dark yellow/light orange in color with a fingers worth of quickly dissipating white head. Nose is still incredibly bright lemon despite being in bottles for 8 years. There is a good amount of accompanying stone fruit as well in addition to the barnyard funk, horse blanket, and all around mustiness of typical Cantillon. Taste mirrors the nose, bright citric character with just the right amount of backing funk. The stone fruit is a little more prominent in the flavor. We paired it with a peach dessert they offered and the flavors were explosive together. Light mouthfeel, spritzy carbonation, restrained acidity, and a moderate finish. Nice gueuze and a pleasure to try. Probably some better options here but a nice experience nonetheless.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the source. Pours an ethereal hazy golden yellow. Nose of lemon peel, faint oak, citrus, and acidic funk. Fresh palate of lemon, lime, tart green apple, with hints of musty oak and nice, lively carbonation. Finish is nicely pure and drying, memorable but not lasting, with notable acidity. Overall a pure expression of raw Gueuze characteristics.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Akkurat. A very well executed geueze once again from Cantillon. Intense sourness on this one and very dry. Some "cantillon funk" in there and highly enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle at Akkurat, pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of intense barnyard funk, some moderate horse blanket, and dry tart light fruits - super complex. Flavour brings out soft barnyard funk, some cheese, loads of lemon, and acidic citrus fruits. Very soft on the palate for a gueuze, with a medium acidity and a relatively high citrusy and lemony body. Fairly complex and very lemony. Good stuff, but not worth the price tag or hype.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) Pours hazy golden with a medium sized, off-white bead. The aroma is mega funky with notes of horse blanket, mouldy basement and barnyard brett up front alongside clear lacto notes. Also boat loads of citrus (grapefruit and lemon), elder, sweaty cheese, phenols (smoked meat) and subtle spices. Touch of pineapple. The flavour is dry, medium to heavily acidic and tiny bitter with notes of brett, lacto, citrus, cheese, wheat, white bread and phenols. The mouthfeel is soft and tart with a light to medium carbonation. Citric, funky and wheaty finish. Light to medium bodied.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: A refreshing citrusy/lemony Gueuze with mouth drying tannins. Excellent beer, slightly below average Cantillon.
How: Bottle 750ml at Akkurat, Stockholm.
The look: Cloudy blond body topped by a medium white head with surprisingly good retention.
In long: Nose is nicely funky, a bit on the cheesy side, citrus fruits and lemon. Taste has moderate funk, medium presence of lactic acid (relative to the style), refreshing notes of citrus fruits, light presence of oak tannins, a bit of cheese. Plenty of lactic acid but sourness level is a bit lower than the regular Gueuze. Overall, softer and more citrusy-lemony than Cantillon’s regular Gueuze but with more tannins. Lambic worshipers will probably want to hang me upside down but I think this Cantillon Vélomoteur has a lot in common with the Timmermans Oude Gueuze (except for the tannins part), and those same lambic worshipers will want to also burn me at the stake but I actually really like the Timmermans Oude Gueuze, it is like a refreshing gueuze lemonade, and so was Vélomoteur. Certainly not as good as Cantillon’s regular Gueuze, but this was nonetheless a treat on a hot humid summer day in Stockholm. These days rare Cantillons are a big craze, but these beers are not pokemons, let’s not be childish about collecting them all, and btw I had a rare Cantillon and you didn’t, na na na, I had a rare Cantillon and you didn’t, na na na, I had a rare Cantillon and you didn’t, na na na.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Akkurat. Hazy, light orange liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of apples, lemons, sweat, tropical fruit funk and some mineral. Tsate is dry and medium to high sour with a nicely balanced lemony flavour. Really dry. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Really good, quite similar to the regular Cantillon Gueuze but better.
