daknole (9417) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2010
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....

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 (4957) - 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.

Bottle at Akkurat. Aroma of apples, basement aromas and sour candy. Good but a bit to kind and balanced.

hirigalzkar (2338) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2010
1998 bottle. Pours a hazy-orange liquid with white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity for a gueuze, with notes of cork. Taste is sour at first, then sweet of apples and candy. This is a relaxed and easy to drink guezue that shows some similarities with a sour saison.

JAXSON (529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2009 1998 bottle. Pours clear medium orange with a thin, soapy head. Nose is brett, hay, sage. Herbal. Quite funky and wild. Lemon in the mouth, a lot of barn character. Dry and soft. Not bracingly sour, but quite funky and really balanced. Perfectly soft carbonation. This seems to have mellowed considerably, but still blossoms with a deep complexity that’s hard to describe. As it warms, strange herbs, plants, and pollen come out. I had this beside a newer Fou Foune and this was far less sour but much more refined. The finish is what separates this from similar geuze, it’s long, long, and unfolds from dandelions into a soft ripe cheese. Beautiful!

playitbybeer (118) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Orange color with no head. The smell is over the top funky ass cheese, palmolive soap and acid. This is awesome. Super thick funky ass cheese taste...I want to make a quesadilla with it. Wow. Mouth is dry as the sahara and a nice finish...I want a cask of this so I can just fill my house with the aroma.
