COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cantillon “Spuyten Duyvil” is a hand blended lambic that has been laid down on a small portion of New Jersey Cranberries brewed specifically for Spuyten Duyvil. The Cranberries are subtle but the beer is not. Full on, tart, leathery and super complex in both aroma and palette. There are 23, 6 bottle cases and 1 keg

Bottle @ Summer tasting. Thanks everyone involved in scoring this one. This is crazy, a great and unique beer. The cranberries are a little difficult to pick up and you get more of the tart skins and tannins. Oaky and pleasantly tart.

750ml bottle at pre-ghost tasting in NY 7/27/2013. Though there was no discernible cranberry presence, this pour was heavy on the fruit skins and tannins. Despite the naysayers, it most definitely had a distinct flavor profile from a gueuze of its age. I was shocked to see just how much tartness and bracing acidity there was here.. really a marvelous pour from a bottle that had seemingly faded into obscurity. What a surprise. Had a second 375 ml bottle at the lambic tasting in Stockholm at Magnus’ place, 11/13. Thanks to Ludvig for sharing. High consistency with the previous bottle I tried, very nice tannin presence and very comparable to other 2005 era lambic, with just a bit extra. Has been a pleasure to try this beer several times thanks to some generous folks.

Diego my friend, I owe you big time. My #1 want slayed. Incredible generosity. Pours a hazed gold/yellow with a pillowy white head. The flavor is much like a very well aged gueuze but there’s a hint of a sour fruit lingering. This bottle has held up well and was a treat to drink.

Bottle - thanks Forgetfu, Daknole, and Maltzilla for making this one appear - pour a hazy yellow/orange. Smells tart with a hint of cranberry. The taste was sour and tart with some cranberry on the end. This was nice, real nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Thanks mike for the trade! 375ml bottle 2005 cork. This was one of my big want for a long time. Taste wise the taste resembled the beers aroma! a little bit of cranberry and especially the shell from the berries. but mostly tasted the beer as an amazing Gueuze. you can taste the cranberries, but they where not there up front, much like the smell. Regarding the color of the beer, all the color had faded if there was any color when the bottle was fresh. Amazing too try!

This whale caused a lot of stress over the course of a yr tracking down.... Doesnt exist?? You couldnt be more wrong! 750ml bottle #31 of 168 Poured a deep golden orange with spotty lacing around the glass. A cloudlike head formed, such a beautiful looking geuze with lively carbonation Nose was a mixture of fruit and wood with mild cheesy geuze notes People kept telling me that this beer tasted like a classic bio geuze... They were wrong! Although their is not a cranberry presence, fruit is the predominant flavor. Incredibly well balanced sweetness of fruit with a good amount of sourness from its age. Fruit skin / tannin and oak on the finish. Overall this beer exceeded the negative hype. It was delicious, complex and a bitch to land. Big thanks to the man who gave Moby Dick up.

Golden-orange colored body, decent sized head forms upon pouring. Some streaky lacing. Assertive citrus, musty wood, fruit skins (but certainly no cranberry character as far as I can tell), nice tartness and a fair bit of acidity. Medium to light bodied, lively carbonation, lingering sour finish. Quite nice, and better than expected!

375ml bottle, #58/168, 2005 cork.

Pours orange, white head, thin ring, nice carbonation. Nose is sour, but has smoothed out over the years. Some citrus, oak, funk in there as well. Not nearly as sour as Bourgogne. Flavor is smooth/aged, no cranberries at all, citrus, and tart sweetness. Light body, good carbonation, tart finish.

Really enjoyed this beer even though there are no cranberry notes. Tastes like an aged lambic, which is good enough for me. Not nearly as good as Don Quijote, but hey, I never thought I’d ever get to try this beer.

Bottle traded for with a couple of the other Chicago guys for our blowout tasting. Pours a hazy peach/orange in color with a very little head. Upon pouring my measured out amount in my tulip, there was more head formation. Nose is incredibly sour, almost bracingly so. It settles out some as it warms a little, but it is big time lemon. One of the most sour Cantillon I’ve had to date, similar to the first batch of Soleil. There is an asinine amount of sour patch kid like acidity to it. However, there is no cranberry whatsoever. Light mouthfeel, light carbonation, bracing acidity, and a long sour finish. Probably my favorite of the beers we’ve had so far ( millennium gueuze, OGV ’02, and ’98 OG). Crazy sour, but I love it.
