Bottle pours hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma is wonderful funk, acidic, and tart fruits. Taste is sour, tart, lemon like, and sour. Has a medium light mouthfeel. Overall is a very nice beer and could be a regular of mine. hayduke (5665) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 25, 2008
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. mirjukka (752) - LOHJA, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2008

bit hazy orange. Taste pleasant fresh sourness, lactic acidity, notes of fruits very pleasant astringent one aftertaste. I will never be bored this one. Have to re-rate again soon now just bit hazy taste memories on Saturday night without pen and paper. kraziness (3) - , Nebraska, USA - SEP 23, 2008 does not count
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 (1221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2008
UPDATED: APR 25, 2011 I can’t believe that I haven’t 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, I’ll never turn down a Cantillon gueuze.

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. cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 10, 2008
Cloudy golden with white lasting head. Strong tart aroma of barnyard, horses, leather and wood. Sour flavour and sour long dry finish. djtimeless (222) - Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2009 Pours out a hazy gold. Smells nice. Taste is tart and a little bit funky. Lots of acid. Nice sour finish. Crisp and dry. henrikb (1264) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2008
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. EricE (1372) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2008

Cantillon Geueze is an amazing beer and one of my favorite gueuze’s. But thanks to Casey I got to try a 2001 Vintage and experienced one of the best beers I’ve 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
