4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
(Vintage 2004) Wonderful tart aroma, hints of apple, and just a touch of basement aromas noticeable if you hunt for them. Pours a clear, light orange, with just a ring of big white bubbles around the edge of the glass. Wow... this is tart... Major notes beyond tartness are peaches, green apples, and lemons. Very dry, with a light body, and very low carbonation. Very long sour finish... I’m really curious what this does over time.

Bottle 75cl, a cloudy yellow orange beer with low head. Nose is on apple juice, moist and sour touch. Aroma is very dry and acid, hard pineapple notes, brett, acid, too much acidity and pineapple notes for me.

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.

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.
