UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Consumed August 17, 2010 at Akkurat in Stockholm with my wife.

A: Golden-straw body with just the slightest bit of cloudiness. Thin off-white head comprised of tiny, well defined bubbles. Slight lacing left behind in the tumbler after each sip.

S: Lemon-citrus, hay, and quite a bit of mustiness.

T: Quite funky, with a ton of barnyard flavors like hay, leather, and sweat. Not as much citric notes as in the nose. A bit muddled and not as complex as some other gueuzes with similar age.

M: Medium-light carbonation and a nice sour acidity. Not particularly puckering in the finish. Refreshing.

O: Given the difficulty in acquiring one of these bottles, I’d rather just get a well cared for vintage classic gueuze... but that’s not to say this wasn’t enjoyable. EDIT: Subsequent bottles have been better (ranging from 4.5 to 4.6 range).

Huge thanks to Maltzilla for this one. A: Pours a nice golden hue with a nice tall lasting head. S: Aromas of green apples, hay, and fresh zested citrus. T: Barnyard funk at its finest. Wet hay and leather. The tartness is there more citrus than the apple I picked up but in a nice way. M: Zippy carbonation, nice sourness without being too tart. D: Good honored to have tried this one. Diego never disappoints when it comes to tastings!!

Den har en ganska mild och len doft. Smaken är också mycket snäll och har en liten syrlighet i god balans med sötma, något träaktig tyckte jag även hitta. Mycket frisk och fin, passar nog jättebra en varm sommardag. Mycket snäll utan större konstigheter.

LCBS 10, Day 2. This is now, honestly, one of my all-time favorite sours. Very complex flavor and nose to it. Nose is full of barnyard funk, earth and leather. The front palate is attacked with a good measure of fruit tartness and followed by citrus notes, some green apple to it too . . . and here comes the horse blanket!

750 Bottle at Jason’s CO sour tasting. Big thanks to Logan for breaking this rarity out. Poured into my Cantillon glass. Pours hazy orange with just a hint of carbonation. Nice lacing still all over. Crazy musky aroma, with notes of wood and earth/minerals. Beautiful citrus flavor with the tell-tale horse blanket and leather flavors of a wonderfully aged lambic. Dry finish. Overall - my favorite of the tasting and now, from Cantillon. Saludos!

LCBS 2010. Diego’s surprise beer, and wow what a great one. Gold/orange pour. Tons of awesome fruity funk in this one. Some hay and barnyard aroma, tart apples. Flavor is fruity and fun. Lots of funky goodness, some decent tartness. Apples, light dryness. Awesome stuff. Thanks Diego. You are the man.

Thanks to Diego for another stunner from Cantillon shared at the LCBS 10. Huge stale horse blanket nose. The beer is crisp and tart with flavors of green apples, light citrus, and hay..... Maybe my favorite beer by Cantillon....

Ratman197 (9724) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2010
750 ml capped and corked bottle poured a clear golden amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of horseblanket, leather, earthiness, light straw and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of horseblanket, straw, leather and light citrus with a crisp dry lingering tart funky finish.

afrantzell (39) - The Court of the Crimson King, California, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Bottled in 1998.

It rests tanned, bronzed, and svelte in the glass, reeking of wood and horse fetor. Tastes like oak staves, shepherds’ crooks, and Belgian balustrades. Lemon juice in the finish, which is sharp and drying.

Speaking of finishing, this did carbonate. It has a pleasantly hefty mouthfeel. As the bottle warms, some vanilla and brown sugar fade in. An ineffably good gueuze.

gyllenbock (4575) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2010
Bottle at Akkurat in Februari 2010, vintage 1998. The color was cloudy orange, the small white foam disappeared quickly. Interesting aroma for a gueuze, inviting an fresh. Quite sweet with green apples, hay and cork. Not that sour. Taste was not that sour, something sweet, green apples and citrus. Nicely balanced with a great drinkability. Dry with a nice mouth feel. A very good and easy to drink beer.
