4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Peach orange pour. Mild funk, minerals on the nose. Taste is mild minerals, big lemon sour, tart bitterness and some grapefruit tang. As it develops in the glass a very slight oaky vanilla comes out on the palate - fantastic. Very drinkable on a balmy hot Brisbane evening; dry finish. Overall, a great gueuze, definitely the best of the Cantillon blends and up there with the crazy good 3 Fonteinen stuff. Wish I had another bottle...

Poured 2010 from bottle to glass. Golden hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is lactic, oak, straw, peppercorn, lemon. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a tart following and dry spicy finish. Overall this is a great beer!

Thanks to me for the excellent share :V
This beer is insane. It’s just so fruity and funky and this is the first time I’ve had a bottle less than two years old and its really amazing how lively and fun this tastes straight out of the gate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(2010 vintage bottle @ barVolo for Zwanze Day 2014, Sept 20 2014) Lightly hazed pale orange, big white head with no lace. Aroma yeasty, slight green apple, wet hay, faint cheese. Flavour like a champagne with more bitter, barnyard notes. Complex and difficult to describe, acidic at the start but drier and more bitter in the finish. Cheese and brambles and dried herbs in the middle, cider vinegar on the finish. Lightish mouthfeel and creamy soft carb. One of the toughest beers to describe that I’ve had, but really lovely to drink. It does remind me quite a lot of champagne, crossed with a lambic, and seemed to have aged quite nicely. I find it more elegant than the normal gueuze. Real thinking beer.

Slightly hazy golden yellow with a good white head. Aroma is old cheddar, dry white wine, barnyard funk, grapes, wildflowers. Light bodied, tart and dry on the palate but in a soft way with no harshness, slightly fruity dry finish. Taste is dry white wine with subtle notes of peach and apricot, mild cider vinegar, lightly citric and floral sourness.

750 ml bottle, 2010 year on the sticker, poured at the Tipple’s Rare and Barrel Aged Beer tasting on July 13, 2014. Nice job, guys!
Pours clear golden colored with a small white fluffy head. Aroma is of the lemon peel and mint leaf kind that I get from a lot of gueuze, some dry dusty oak, funky yeast, very nice. Flavor is pretty funky lacto sour with lemon peels, super dusty dryness, oak, some other citrus notes, hay. Excellent. Like this better than the Classic Gueuze version. Body is very light, with medium plus carbonation and super easy drinking.
