From a 750 bottle that cost $!3.49 at the local Northcoast Coop, this poured a cloudy apricot color with a fat head. Nose of yeast and ripe fruits with a nice clean mouthful. Flavor is citrus dominated, and the finish is sour. Good.

First tasted at the brewery in Brussels, Belgium. Very interesting and attractive overall, especially for an inexperienced beer drinker that wants to broaden their horizons. Can be very wine-like, depending on the temperature. Recommend chilling and letting it warm while drinking. Definitely for drinkers that want a traditional gueuze.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2008
UPDATED: APR 25, 2011 I cant believe that I havent recorded a rating of this yet. Sampled most recently in a 375mL bottle at Tria Fermentation School on 9/16/08. Poured hazy gold, with a minimal off-white head. Sharp lactic nose, with wild yeast, lactic acid, citrus, and barnyard. Acid attacks the palate first, but gradually is joined by notes of lemon, orange rind, apricot, wood and mild herbs. Very dry, acidic finish. One of my favorites, Ill never turn down a Cantillon gueuze.

Eructoblaster (4005) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle - 375ml. Blond body with good carbonation and a thin white foamy head. Strong hoppy aroma that carries herbal, flowery, and citrusy hints. Taste is one of the sharpest I’ve ever had. Unfortunately, it tends to hide any subtilities. Ends with a long and robust sour finish. This is truly not for lager people.

Cloudy golden with white lasting head. Strong tart aroma of barnyard, horses, leather and wood. Sour flavour and sour long dry finish.
