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 Dan. Love this one with its complexity from the different barrels, very vinous with red whine fleshy flavors mixed with more elegant aromas and flavors of lighter fruits, lemons, tart berries and oak.

Quite the zesty pour, with citrus notes and bright lively carbonation. Sampled a bottle at Moeder Lambic (couldn’t beat the price - 40€! ) which really sticks out in my mind as exceptional. This blend reminds me of Cantillon Bourgogne, similar to a bio gueuze but with a nice touch more from the various wine casks used for aging. Some subtle sweetness and a bit more lacing/head retention then that of classic gueuze, the two are very similar but I got more tannins and oak from the JCN ’11. A nice treat to try, can’t wait to see what some age does to it..

Bottle shared by b3shine at a special local tasting in July of 2012 from notes (I am so far behind with backlogs I don’t care if milestones are current or not). Pours a hazy dark golden color with a small white head. The aroma is more tart than sour, lactic acidity, vinegar, white wine, oak with some musty funk throughout. The flavor is more sour, lactic acidity, grapefruit, white wine, oak, vinegar, dry, funk with enough carbonation. This is crazy complex, but very drinkable at the same time. Someday I hope to revisit this gem.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Dave. Huge thanks for this one man!!! Pour is slightly hazy orange with a small white head and decent lacing. Big funky, uriney, sweet tart, lemon peel, biscuits, earthy, straw, grassy, horse blanket and vanilla - so smooth and sweet. Taste is pungent orange juice, lemons, oak, gym socks, lactic, hay, almost nutty, vanilla, and grass with a lightly tart finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. We tasted this next to the normal Cantillon gueuze and it makes it seem so simplistic. A very complex lambic and an absolute treat to try.

Bottle @ Steve_0. Thanks Dave! Pours a pretty hazy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Really earthy, big dandelion, spicy floral, lemon zesty aroma. Big juicy, thick lemon, herbal / grassy, moderately tart, sweet tart, tangy flavor. Fucken awesome.

At Stephens House with Stephen, Aaron, and Dave. Pours neon orange not clear. Around is beautiful nuanced cantillion lambic gueuze notes, sour tartness, lemon, tangy soft tartness. Taste is beautiful rounded sour dry awesomeness, sweet tart, cantillion greatness.

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!

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
