Bottled in February of 2013. 750 mL bottle at Parker’s Pie in Vermont. Remarkable. Pours a cloudy amber with aromas of barnyard funk and fruit. Flavors of fruit, oak and spice are enveloped in tart funk. A beautiful beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Kraddel. Shared during the Homer "welcome to California" tasting. Pours clear butterscotch, small off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma is all Cantillon basement funk, barnyard. Flavor is surprisingly lightly funky, with just a light tartness behind it. Lots of oak. Very dry. Light body, spritzy carbonation. Highly drinkable, but not really complex.

Cloudy gold pour with a single finger white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of sour fruits and a little vinegar. Really nice full mouth. Sour apple, fruit rind, slightly briny. Apple juice creeps in and out. Very easy to drink and super complex.

2009 vintage, bottled in 2011, received in trade, split with my bride. Pours a clear amber color with a white head that fades quickly. Aroma is oak, lemon, grass, a little musty. Medium on the palate with light, soft carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, some lemon, oak, with a tart, dry finish. Excellent.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from 2003. Yes, 2003. I thought it was going to be horse pee and vinegar. To our surprise...it was still delicious. Poured into small snifters, the head was extremely mild. Slight ring was about all. The aroma was fairly traditional with the wild yeasts penetrating, soft fruits like white grapes and pears, and a funky horse barn as well. The taste was amazingly good. (Not sure what to expect.) The fruits and funky still came through nicely. I think the edge had worn off of the sourness some and it was slightly muted compared to more modern Guezes from Cantillon. But overall it was really fun to drink an 11 year old beer. Finish was clean. Great carbonation still. Very light body of course. Finish was sour and fruity at the same time.
