omhper (19228) - 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 (3596) - 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 (5104) - 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 (29168) - 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.

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.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2003
For a gueuze that didn't carbonate, it was pretty effervescent. Cloudy tan colour. Deep, sweaty notes, fresh manure (hey, I roll my windows DOWN when I drive out to the farms), old wood. Long, sour Cantillon signature. Enjoyably cheesy, good depth and some cobweb. Smooth and more approachable than the above description would indicate.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 The softer, drier Cantillon geueze. Apples, lemons, moss, damp laundry, and only a hint of horseblanket. The musty/sour flavor seems to be less assertive and concentrate at different areas in my mouth. Light and woody. One of my all-time favorites,

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 6, 2003
RateBeer Summer 2003: Cloudy orange color, sour horse hay aroma with a bit of flowers. Fizzy mouthfeel. The horse taste dominates this beer and makes it difficult for me to enjoy it.

heykevin (1274) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Peppery sour aroma. Tart but not assertively so. Definitely a cantillon product, but with a real oak cask character to it.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2006 2003: Nose is lemony, slight honey, hints of cannabis and oregano. Cloudy yellow. Slightly more watery than I’d expect. Tart just on back of tongue. Quite odd. 1998 bottle tasted 2006: Not getting as much of the funny herbal aromas and flavors this time. Instead is a well-balanced, profoundly tart classic, with nice fruity (lemon, orange) notes, and a dryness that beckons you to the next sip.
