Jean Chris label 750ml bottle. Mixed flavors and aromas. i picked out a very small smoky flavor. (although i was the only one who smelled that in the group) nice taste of green apples. And the skin of red berries. Wine was there but way in the back. overall a good beer! And thanks Dan for sharing!

Thank you Dan! 2011 bottle. Very elegant. Subtle flavours from the barrels. Wish the barrels would of given it more. All in all a very nice beer.

75cl, Vintage 2011, recently retired exclusive organic brew, thx to Secret Santa!, very complex sour brew, sour/woody and slightly vinous/fruity, balanced, hazy, small head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

750ml bottle. Thanks to cp for the assist...bottle opens without much of a sound. Cork comes off completely clean. Apprehensive after the fact... Pours a hazy apricot hue allowing some light to penetrate while being topped with a thin film of frothy yet creamy white head... Aroma of clean lambic and white wine notes throughout and consistently so. Pretty vibrant with even mild grapefruit aspects ...flavor of oaken clean and geueze-like upfront with more grapiness peaking through as it warms. Lighter than medium

The wine doesn’t come out as much as you would think, needs more time, looking forward to its development. A slightly vinous takes on the classic gueuze, hold onto this for awhile.

Shared by Greg at Zwanze Day 2012. This is the kind of thing I like out of a Cantillon gueuze, has picked up a lot of nice wine characteristic and isn’t super heavy on the palate. I wish I had gotten a bigger pour to get a better taste, but am extremely grateful for the share nonetheless.

Bottle thanks to James. Pours a rich golden color with decent sized head. Aromas of oak, wine (almost astringent red wine), light red fruit, and some citrus. The palate is a bit tannic and woody, along with being sour, with flavors of lemon candy, funk, and lime. Finishes dry and puckering.

Original review 08-14.12. 750ml bottle.

JCN pours a golden yellow color, white fizzy head, and some wisps on top. Lots of citrus, oak, cheese, and a vinous kick on the end. It’s more complex then your regular old Classic Gueuze, and I would easily be able to tell the different between the two. Tastes even better then the nose, with lots of citrus funk, nice and tart, good acidity, oak. The wine barrels aren’t there as much as the nose, but it’s still an excellent-tasting beer.

Really dug this beer both times I’ve had it, and I’m looking forward to cracking another one in the next 6 months or so. Not sure if it will improve or lose some wine barrel complexity...we shall see.

Pours transparent golden yellow with a very small head. The nose is funky straw, vinegar, barnyard, lemons and Brett! The taste is medium sweet and high sour. The finish is super long, crisp and clean. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Craft Clerkenwell Tasting. Thanks to Jose for this rarity! Hazy gold beer, tidy off white head. Light crispy palate, fairly dry. Light geueze sourness. Mildly woody dried fruits. Light dry finish. Pleasantly sour- grapefruit and wood.
