UPDATED: JAN 29, 2017 Bottle shared at Cantillon - batch 3, bottled Dec 2015. Semi-hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Notes of macerated apples, pears, cognac, lambic funk, dank cellar, unripe pears. Quite dry, with a very complex bouquet of aroma - curious to try this one with a bit of age on it.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Bon, celle-ci était la meilleure de la dégustation à la brasserie. Malgré tout, les gueuzes ne sont pas mon style de bières et Cantillon est particulièrement marqué dans ce domaine. Alors voilà. Johnstledger8 (1327) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thin bubbly to lacy off white head. Aroma is of butterscotch, citrus, white grapes, apple. Taste is of grapes, citrus, apple, lime, acidic, hint of pear, melon, butterscotch, sweet finish. Oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. JBPortland (1564) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2017
750ml bottle 2012 vintage batch 2, was a pleasant surprise when this was pulled out of someone’s bag at our New Years gathering! Pours clear golden yellow with minimal bubbles but a touch of carbonation. Nose is old and wise, complex white grape, wine, attic, wood, lemony citrus. Taste is similar to the nose with nice layers of old lambic funk and musty citrus. Cognac is present but not dominant throughout. Moderate acidity. A beer to sip and ponder! koleminer20 (3976) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 29, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed at Cantillon on November 10. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a nice darker golden orange, relatively clear, with a thin white head. The aroma is lovely. There is a great citrusy acidity to it and the signature Cantillon funk. I like the sweetness of the cognac barrel throughout. The light grape must is nice as well. The flavor is nice and acidic. There is a great sourness and a light funk. The cognac and grape just go so well together. It’s balanced, tart, crisp, and fantastic. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a lightly soft carbonation and a lingeringly funky and acidic sweetness of the cognac with a tart grape skin. This is awesome. Such a great start to the trip!

Bue en bouteille de 75cl chez Cantillon
Couleur ambrée, grosse effervescence peu de mousse
Nez sur la gueuze et avec une toute petite pointe de cognac
Attaque en bouche caractéristique de la gueuze cantillon avec juste un arrière goût vineux du cognac et de l’alcool. Pas si complexe... Rask0lnikov (1471) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2016
750ml bottle. Pale amber colour. Modest white head which disappears quite quickly. Acidity, vanilla, almondy notes or notes of marzipan, creamy citrusses (sic!) in the aroma. Woody notes, citrussy notes at first. Slight acidity. Oakiness. Oak, woody, spicy finish. Slightly acidic, spicy, citrussy, bit sweet aftertaste. Maybe even hints of peat. Balance is amazing. Fruity notes as well. It has nice, smooth, silky body. Definitely more body than usual gueuze. Rather low carbonated beer. A masterpiece. Will miss this one.

Flavor that changes while airing, great lambic in my eyes.
After a some resting he will taste even more subtile and full. MisoW (3656) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle at Cantillon. Pours golden color, small white head. Aroma of oak, quite sweet. Taste is sour, wood, mainly oak, bit fruity. RasmusOtt (2874) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2016
Bottle @ the source. A very very long time want! Pours clear amber with a white head. Aroma has some smooth basement funk, green apples, stable, vinegar, wood and slight sweet cognac kinda notes. The taste has notes of tart green apples, vinegar, smooth funk, green grape skin and some sweet cognac which also provides this a pretty smooth and oily body. Extremely interesting and deep gueuze, though much more "straight forward" than I would have guessed. This one was pretty fresh though and I would love to see hot this turns out with some aging as for every rare cantillon beers haha. Awesome!
