LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2004
Sampled in a beer tasting at Plan B, Copenhagen. Unique bottle from 1998. Again, this is just not my type of beer: terrible aroma and too acidic (sour!). Dry and with hints of lemon peel.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2004
Rare chance to find a bottle at spuyten duyvil. Nice looking bottle at that. Nice hazy blonde, honest white head. Weird nose of dijon mustard, leather, barnyard. Complex and interesting experience to spend 10 minutes sniffing this glass. Puckering. Not too agressively acid, this is very drinkable actually and less astringent than most while not missing any of the funk. Hay, spices, mustard, bread, balsamic vinegar flavors. Surprising medium-full body. Not bad for a brewing error! Perhaps my favorite of the cantillons I’ve had to this date.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2004
6 years since botteling. Golden with small white head. Pleasent sourness, cork, must, mould, round with vegetables lurking around the edges (radishes, sellery?). Long sour and dry finish.

jaymobrown (1697) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2004
2003: Hazy straw color. Distinct sour flavors, but with a hint of sweetness. A type of dry twig finish. Something earthy and gritty in the end.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2004
Hazy tan colour. Woody aroma with tones of roasted wheat, malt and meat. Acidity and a certain sweetness. Cigarleaf flavor with lots of acid. But not as sour as regular Cantillons.

omhper (19986) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2004
Bottled (1998). Hazy deep golden. Citric nose. Nearly flat, but still with pleasant light, sparkling mouthfeel. Juicuy and concentrated. Barnyrady and woody. Soft and dense malt character. What a brilliant mistake this beer is!

rauchbier (3635) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2004
1998 bottle sampled at Cantillon Open Brewing Day March 2004, thanks to Jean-Pierre Van Roy who turned up at our table unannounced with a dusty bottle of unspecified origin. Slightly hazy amber with a moderate white head and a delicate spritzy fine condition. Big juicy fruit, sour and leathery aromas. Quite full and well rounded, smooth and citric with complex funky barnyard notes in the mouth and a long dry chalky finish with hints of decay in the finish.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2004
[1998] Glass poured by mr. Van Roy himself at the brewery. More soft and rounded than normal Cantillon Gueuze. Even more complex than the normal. Very pleasant.

Ungstrup (29851) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2004 [A special treat from Jean-Pierre van Roy at the open brewing day March 6th 2004 - thanks a million] The color is an unclear orange with a white head. The aroma is sour, dusty, and woody. The flavor is very sour with strong notes of grapefruit, lemon, wood, and dust. I believe this is the best Gueuze I have tried.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Deep in the forest is where I stumbled upon it: a small mahogany gazebo. Covered in thick green vines, the wood gives off a muddy floral aroma. . .inside there are some small webs in the upper corners, but it is surprisingly clean. I leave the inside and stroll around to the back of the structure where I find a small green apple tree and an incredibly clear creek. Parched I dip my hands in the water and drink deeply: clean, cold almost sweet water. Picking an apple I sat on a solid stone enjoyed the mildly tart green flesh, the cool wet breeze and the woodland aroma.
