UPDATED: AUG 10, 2008 Much needed re-rate, had this many times since, but had 2005 and 2004 Vintage bottles @ Ebenezer’s and damn this beer is sick!!!
Beer 15 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/1/06 from the bottle at Cantillon. I split a bottle of this beer with my brother after sampling the basics. This brew is very acidic and sweet, tart, and sour. It is very tasty and unique. I donít think I have ever tasted anything quite like this brew. My brother thought it tasted like Champagne.

Bottle at GBBF 06í: a great Gueuze, very dry but a bit less then the ordinary Gueuze, very sour, spicy, rich, refreshing, some hoppy bitterness, cirtusy, very fruity with some caramel like sweetness, earthy, hay, smooth and satisfing.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I figure Iíd save this for my 400th rating because I shared it with my two best buddies (thanks Bri & Mike!) Iíve known since I was a kid. The aroma of this beer is so unique because not only does it have the usualy notes of barnyard, cheese funk, and leather but thereís also some hops! Yes hops my friends! And while itís not on the level of an IPA itís there and the melding of the usual suspects and the hops is terrific. Appearance is a dark orange color, slightly hazy, small head. Mouthfeel is full and round, but not stripping like other lambics could be. Flavors are simply incredible with leather, horeseblanket, earthy, some funkiness but added to it is the grapefruit bitterness which is simply awesome. Iím glad I waited to have the Iris be my 400th review and to have it with the company I tried it in was near perfect. If only my brother could have been there...

Bottled. A bit hazy, orange colour with small white head. Sour fruits in aroma with some nutty hints. Flavour is quite the same. A quite wellbalanced Cantillon. Finally I managed to find an unblended lambic, this has been the final missing beer style for a while ...

Sampled at Cantillon. Lots of hops in the aroma alongside the trademark Cantillon funkiness. Seems to me that the use of 50% fresh hops has had a bigger impact than the use of all pale ale malts. This reminds me alot of Orval.
