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.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2008
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.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 13, 2008
375ml bottle with a 2005 bottling date on cork. Dark golden with a tight white head. Great aroma is toasted wood, dandelions, with cheesy barnyard. Very tart tongue numbing mouthfeel. Medium body. Good flavors of lemon, dry wood, with a wheat bread maltiness. A nice gueze if not very complex.

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Circa 2005. Pours a super-hazy yellow with an initially monstrous head that simmers down after a decade and a half. Tart, citrus nose, especially of lemon. Taste is a base-funkiness that really hits your tongue on the sides in the back. Great lemony-tart character with many subtle flavors. What I thought would be an overwhelming carbonation taste did not come into play. A very nice Gueuze; one of the best I have had.

blankboy (7510) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2008
My bottle (375ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- courtesy of GregClow. Pours a hazy orange with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of funky yeast, cheese, some citrus and a hint of hops. Flavour follows the aroma: funky yeast, cheese, citrus and hops but adds sour fruit and has a finish that’s quite dry. Acidic, astringent palate. Quite nice, and refreshing in it’s own way.

Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2008
375 ml bottle. Hazy yellow color with a white, quickly disappearing head. Aroma is vinous, sour, smokey with som stable. Flavour is sour with citrus, unmatured apples and some unmatured gooseberries. This was my first gueuze ever, but I thought this would be even sourer than it was. It feels balanced, nice and quite easy to drink!

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2008
A hazy yellow/golden colored beer, with a foamy white head. It disappears quickly. The aroma is sour, woody, fresh and lemon. The taste is sour, almost vinegar, a little sweet of citrus. It’s a fresh taste. It has a dry, bitter aftertaste.
