Bottle. Nice orange color with a smallish head. Nice sour aroma with some aromas of mold, oak, orange peel and hops. Taste is light for a Cantillon with some flavors of peach, barnyard and tobacco. Really good.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2013 Shared bottle provided by Eyedrinkale. This one was a nice break from all the IPAs I had this night (10 @ Sly Fox and then 3 others afterwards). Poured a medium hazy amber color with a white head. Musty, peachy, tart, with sour apples. Lightly sweet. I enjoyed this one.
Re-rate ... fresher and more defined palate ...

Thanks EDA. Cloudy brownish yellow, white head. Aroma of musty soured fruit and very rich. Soured fruit flavor, slightly sweet, but tart. Jolly ranchers. This is wonderfully yummy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a cloudy, dark amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Sweet caramel, butterscotch, horseblanket, sour apple aroma. Dusty cobweb taste, sour apple, lemon, with mild prickly carbonation, I thought more so than the 1900 Grand Cru.

Had just enough to get a good impression and the desire for more. vinous, acidic, thin to a degree. complex to say the least.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Okay, hereís where I ruffle some feathers again. Just didnít care for this. So why rate a style I know I donít like? Well, first, I spent good money on this bottle. Second, it just may have been one I liked. Anyway, it wasnít. Orange colored body with a champagne-like head. There was some grassy, earthiness to the aroma and, sadly, to the taste. Sour, bitter, astringent. To each his own.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Vintage: 2001
This is a masterpiece. Massive creamy head. Gleaming amber body. Resiny sheen and dense white beauty. Nose: Signature Cantillon sourness, although with a tinge of piney hop bitterness. Quite a lovely flowery effect. Mint and dill. Only a slightly crumbled dusty character pushes through. The horseblanket brett competes with hoppy resin and the overt sourness. Flavors: Tart apple and rich sweet malt. The flossy sweetness of the malts really shows through on this one. Incredible to taste a gueuze that is as syrupy sweet as this one is. Orange rind and pine trees. The dry hoppiing is magnificent . The sourness of the gueuze and the hoppy bitterness really combine to create a minty flavor that is refreshing. Carbonation is excellent as is the mouthfeel. Very resiny and slimy. Thick and coating like cough syrup. This is a MASTERFUL outing. Exquisite.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2011 (750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy, bubbly orange body with a large rocky off-white head. Aroma is tart with perfume, floral, lemon, salty, white grapes, grapefruit, and orange. Flavor of florals, grapefruit, mango, and light grass with a soft, delicate mouthfeel and a dry finish.

Bottle, golden amber in color, minimal off white head, dissipates quickly, very strong citric smell...almost resembles a flower, very acidic, citrus taste with a strong sourness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle for #400 courtesy of Rudolf. Another new style. Pours with a nice off-white head. Great lacing. Color is orangish with hints of red/pink, slight haze. Aroma is both sweet and tart, some floral notes. This just about makes you pucker at the end of a long sniff. Sweet malt is quickly overpowered by sour and tart. Like biting into a grapefruit rind. Interesting, not something I would drink everyday but a style I would enjoy drinking once or twice a year.
