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.

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 (4100) - 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.

2003 - Beautiful clear deep golden body with a huge lasting white head; Huge very beautiful nose, very settled, balanced with a farm like attitude; Super body that quickly turns balanced warm, tartic and malic acid; Slightly harsh finish with lots of tartic acid and tons of deep aromas. This has seriously settled from 5 years of age, become super smooth, still with lots of acid bite much more tartic then when young.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2010 Rerate 5/4/2010 - 2001 Vintage courtesy of Casey at Maxs Taphouse Cantillon Geueze is an amazing beer and one of my favorite gueuzes. But thanks to Casey I got to try a 2001 Vintage and experienced one of the best beers Ive ever had. It poured a slightly hazy yellow-orange pour with a thin white head. A funky, almost roasted aroma with lots of herbal notes and a touch of hops. Fucking delicous beer. Very very tart with a lots funk and earth. Lots of roasted notes. Amazing stuff. Initial rating 8/24/2008 Hazy peach color with a thin white head. Citrusy lemon aroma with woody oakiness. Almost like lemonade. Very sour with orange and lemon flavors. A touch of sweetness. The sourness is at the perfect level for me. Very good. - 8/4/8/3/16

750ml from the Wine Specialist, D.C. 2006 bottle, opened and had some strange dark brown ooze on the cork. Hmmm. Drinking it anyways, of course. Pale orange color with nice champagne-like carbonation in there. Lovely woody, musty nose is quite promising. Initial taste was a touch surprising, as there were salty notes, almost like soy. But the beer settled down well and the intense citric qualities (white grapefruit in particular) came on strong. Best thing about this beer is the mouth-puckering finish.

Tasted at the brewery following our tour. This is a treat, very dry and sour. Citrusy, earthy, lightly malty. Sour, dry and great. Carbonation is nice and keeps it fresh.
