chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Sour and funky aroma, pretty much what I expected, no sweet fruit to offset it. Sour flavor and aftertaste. Acidic. I thought it was rather plain though.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2008
See other gueze entry, this is more more more than that. Smelled of sour berries and a slight grapefruit zest. Taste was quite sour and then very bitter, maybe too much for some. Sour berries and grapefruit were the dominant tastes. Watery on the palate and long to finish. For the hardcore Gueze drinker.

Small white head. Hazy yellow body. Metallic wooden thin aroma with wool notes. Thin sour metallic grainy taste. Astringent, almost burning. Thin body. Sour lemony wooden aftertaste. Very nice and clean. (0.1l taster, Norbrygg beer judging course.)

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - NOV 28, 2008
375ml bottle, 2004 vintage. Cloudy golden apricot pour with a quarter inch white head that disapates quickly. Great nose, strong barnyard aroma along with dry hay. Flavors are strong funky barnyard with a tart and dry finish.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - NOV 28, 2008
375ml bottle. Bottled in 2008. Lots of barnyardy brett in the aroma along with some lactic tang & lemon. The aroma is pretty restrained for a Cantillon beer since it is so young. Hazy gold color with a short lived smallish head and gentle carbonation. Intial taste is lemon and lactic acid followed by a nice lactic tartness and restrained barnyardy brett. Dry finish with some lingering tartness. Simple but elegant.
