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.

2010 vintage thanks to _angst_...thanks Alex! Pours a vibrant golden straw color. Lively fizzy white head that breaks into spotty lacing. Nice carb races up the glass. Aromas are insanely inviting! Big sour notes of musty grapes...wet oak...funky blue cheese...burnt rubber...basement...hay...whoa! Lots going on! Taste is fantastically tart and vinious in nature. Loads of oak, barnyard and cheese carry this a long way on my palate. Musty grape, lemon zest and a dry crisp finish make this an outstanding beer that I hope to have again!

Bottle at a tasting at Butler's place. Pours a clear golden yellow with a very thin white head. Aroma is tart apples. Some lime. Some lemon. Flavor follows. Really light and clean. Super nice. This was the 2010. Thanks to Butler.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2009 bottle, not sure why I never rated this up until now but might as well. Pours a clear golden with a nice white head that fades to a ring in a tall flute glass. This smells so yummy - combination of sour, horse blanket, wet straw, earthy, reminds me of the inside of a wet cave, some lemon zest and a mild cheese funk. Moderate+ carbonation and full fresh body, sour, a bit of tartness, very dry, nice balanced finish with a balanced acidity.

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.

1998 thank you Corby! Pours translucent golden with a nice almost pinkish gray sandy head. Aroma is light subtle sweet white grape yeast notes and some woody flavors as well. The flavor is tart, bitters, yeasty subtle sweetness that go down really smooth on the palate.

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...
