4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2007 vintage. 750ml green bottle, corked and capped. Pours hazy a hazy golden shade, white head fizzes itself out quickly, very faint ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Lemony, slightly funky nose. Flavour is tart, lemony, acidic, most importantly pleasantly sour. Some woody like dryness, a crisp finish. Moderate acidity throughout. High carbonation, medium bodied. Fulfills the need for sourness and balances that with drinkability. A fantastic beer for any occasion.

750 ml bottle to teku (shared with the Mrs. for our 5th Anniversary). 2011 sticker, bottled 30 December 2013. Looks good; a hazy vibrant gueuze orange with foamy white head. Smells and tastes good too; funk, gym socks, and stanky cheese. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a nice balance of funk and tartness. Carbonation is spot-on. Stinky, well-balanced goodness.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma of earthy, lemon, small wood, vanilla, citrus, barnyard with a floral background. Lots of flavors, nothing really sticks out, incredibly well balanced and complex, and constantly changing as it warms up. Usually donít rank Cantillonís non-fruited offerings very highly, but this is up there.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
í11 vintage in July í15 with several friends. From sandervdbroek-thanks, Sander! Slightly cloudy straw yellow. Nose starts off with massive funky cheese, jumping out of the bottle and glass until it faded or I became desensitized and it gave way to an almost constant change between lemon pith, limestone, light pineapple, and musty funk. Taste follows with lemon, funky cheese, light cobwebs...initially harshly sour but softening as you get used to it and not an enamel stripper by any means. Makes you want to keep going back for more and contemplating it. Great balance.
