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.

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy amber golden with a small, off-white head. Soft and not overly sour aroma. Medium body with a low carbonation and an almost soft mouthfeel - not really typical for Cantillon! Plenty of horse blanket accents but surprisingly accessible for a Cantillon. 061008

Bottled@Akkurat. Orangeish golden colour with minor head. Aroma is acidic and sour wood with some mild notes of sour fruits. Flavour is dry acidic and sour with some mild yeast, wood and also mildly bluecheesy notes. Long sour wooden aftertaste. Really mouthdrying. Still a bit smoother than many other Cantillons.

omhper (21886) - 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!

ygtbsm84 has been talking about this one for years, so I just had to seek it out. It was worth the effort. Cloudy golden color, plenty of carbonation. Aroma of cobwebs, dust, pepper, summer fruit. Taste was dry and powdery, dried grapefruit, dried peach, pepper. Great stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 2009-03-26, courtesy of Jacob (Hildigöltur), bottled in 1998, 11+ years old, 9-4-8-4-17=42
Cloudy light amber color, with small head. Wonderful aroma, citrusy, with light grapefruit and lemon, delicate Bretts, cellar smells, lightly cheesy and woody. Smooth mouthfeel, the typical Cantillon aggressiveness has been smoothered by the age, there is still a good sourness, decisive astringency, a bit woody, with citrus fruits (orange peels). The final is long, astringent, a bit sour and fruity, with more grapefruit. Wonderful.

Beautiful golden colour, bright; not excessively carbonated, but anyway it has half inch of creamy head.
Wonderful aroma, sour and dry, fruity if possible: citrus fruits, pink grapefruit, cassis.
It’s smoother and less astringent than her sisters, the taste is not complete and complex as the aroma; pretty monodirectional, the leading flavour is similar to lemon juice, but less sour, adjusted by a light woodyness.

It’s less interesting than other Cantillon’s, but perfectly enjoyable for any sour-beer addicted out there. I had it with Swiss black bread, butter and Alaskan smoked salmon: the marriage was perfect for my taste.
