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.

2009 or 10 version, all a blur at this point. Poured a hazy yellow with a whisp of head. Nice funk cheese aroma and taste but needs time to develop. the 2001 version in comparison was superior.

Golden, thin white head that dissipates. Nose is big oak barrels, funk, juicy fruit snacks, tart lemon. Taste is funk, very tart pulpy lemon, oak barrels, harsh grains. Lingering tartness and bitterness. Watery mouthfeel, very dry.

2010 vintage. Hazy orange with very little head. Aroma is funkier than the regular gueuze with less obvious lactic sourness. Taste is barnyard, lemons, hay. Some spritz but again less so than the regular version.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Bottle / 2008 / 5+ years old] Turbid, orange-y & burnt yellow body, about 99% opaque & topped with a creamy, smooth, slightly off-white head the slowly descends into a collar. Beautiful Cantillon aroma; funky cork critters, wet bales of hay, Lemonhead candies, mild lactic acid, a touch of vinegar, & green apple sourness. Horse-y, barnyard funk aromas grow stronger with warmth. Taste is wonderfully complex, even more so than the aroma. Lemon, tart lacto, musty cork, barnyard floor, hay, sour stone fruits, light acidity, some orange flesh, a small kiss of vinegar, & a strong, dry, woody oak presence in the finish & aftertaste. Not as sour as the Original Gueuze, & not as funky as the Cuvee de Champions... this is a nice mix in between. Wonderfully balanced between sour & funky with no notable stomach burn. Awesome!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours unclear pale golden with a small aerial white head, some retention and lacing. white grapes, apricots, some citrus - nice fruitiness, mostly lactic/acetic - acidity profile feels somewhat linear, woodsy and lightly astringent notes, herbal-grassiness. moderate carbonation - could be brighter, light body - oily, bone dry and quite tart grassy-herbal finish. not funk-plenty but definitely there. gueuze bio first.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. 2009 Sticker. Pours a fairly clear golden yellow color. Big funky barnyard aroma, tart, fruity, sweet tarts. Big tart, funky, barnyard deliciousness. Not the most sour gueuze/Cantillon I’ve had but still tasty.
