75 cl. bottle had to try a couple of bars before I got this one glad to have tried it, although I was a bit disappointed that I couldnt get it as a take away because I wanted to enjoy this leisurely at home they kept saying that they had to open it there and I had to drink it on the premises because they didnt want to see this wind up on ebay told them that I respect Cantillon just a bit too much in order to do that but it is not like there is any way to check my claim label looks kind of on the cheaper side of thing as some slightly rarer Cantillon tends to be, red Jean Cris label upfront & on the back some explanation, only in French the explanation basically describes what the Jean Cris series is all about, although I am willing to bet that most people who have tried it did some more for the Cantillon than the Jean Cris name, no disrespect to the guys it clearly states that this is an all new beer consisting of a blend of lambic of 3 different years aged on Red Bordeaux, White Bordeaux & Ctes du Rhne barrels good until 2030 (I believe them but I dont think that I will ever get the chance to verify this statement) bottled on 07/01/2011 making this close to 10 months old when consumed slightly hazy golden with almost no head, whatever there is, is very lambic-like \ smell is pretty typical Cantillon, I would say that this would somewhat reminiscent of a 1 yr old Cantillon lambic, very musty, lots of horseblanket, tart, sour lemon, decay, web-covered ancient cellars of ruins but still rather restrained \ Taste is very tart, musty, rotting & decaying with musty lemons, vinegar, lots horseblanket, even more sour & tart white grapeskins, really lots of them, sour, ancient, lots of half rotting old musty wine barrels, like someone forgot them for a century in a cellar & you are kind of licking the inside of them, hint of the gueze bitterness you usual get at the very end f the finish definitely not an over the edge sour \ typical body \ am I insane or am I the only who isnt getting any real wine in here which was sort of what I was expecting for? I am getting musty, sour grape skins but no more than you would regularly get from Cantillon, I am getting a lot rotting old wine barrel wood but no real wine in here, maybe I dont know enough of wine or perhaps even geueze for that matter & I came in with the wrong expectations \ Overall great as is everything in which Jean is even remotely involved in but I dont think that this ranks amongst the best of Cantillon, whatever interest little or big exists for this beer is not because it is the best Cantillon ever, although it is certainly an enjoyable one

Leighton (19496) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 Bottle at Moeder Lambic Fonatinas for Pauls celebration. Pours clear, bright gold with a medium, creamy white head. Extremely fresh, lightly grassy aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, absurdly sweet, some fresh grass, lemony tartness. Light to medium in body with fine, creamy carbonation. Mild dry finish, quite sour but not abrasive or intense. Just exceedingly fresh. An incredibly drinkable gueuze. Awesome.

Bottle, courtesy of Jeremy, thanks dude this is one off the old bucket list. Pours a hazy glowing golden shade with small to medium white head. Aromas/Taste are ultra tart funk w/ lactic notes, wood, wine, flowers, lemon juice, grapefruit, and musty rich and earthy gueuze flavors. Medium bodied impeccable sour.

Bottle. Golden pour with a touch of light head. Wine, wine and more wine, oak, funk and tart aromas. Flavors are smooth, tart, oak, wine tones. Really easy to drink, without a lack of sour Flavors.

375mL bottle drunk 8/13/16.
High clarity in this sunset-orange-golden body. Small, white head shows moderate retention.
Marmalade and tea-like brett characteristics are rich, yet soft. Dont actually get any wine, but it couldnt matter less, as this is just a knockout even without the wine. Perfectly developed brett notes add fruitiness, soft funk, mineral, light band aid and citrus fruit rind, as wood tannins mix to add spicy and earthy notes that, just like in Crianza, are matched perfectly against the brett. Just a touch of lactic acid lingering, adding intensity and "sourness", with no alcohol or flaw.
Perfect lactic and brett interplay balances the juiciness of citrus, with rind-like sourness/tartness. Soft at first, yet developing some biting acidity as it breathes and gathers on the palate. Tons of funk, light honey and even some minerality and minor wine-like notes. Just fantastically complex and drinkable with a dry, but soft body and texture and exquisitely tight carbonation. Kind of would be interested to get more wine expression, but on the other hand, I wouldnt roll the dice to risk upsetting this near perfect balance of flavor. Incredible.

At Stephens House with Stephen, Aaron, and Dave. Pours neon orange not clear. Around is beautiful nuanced cantillion lambic gueuze notes, sour tartness, lemon, tangy soft tartness. Taste is beautiful rounded sour dry awesomeness, sweet tart, cantillion greatness.

Quite the zesty pour, with citrus notes and bright lively carbonation. Sampled a bottle at Moeder Lambic (couldnt beat the price - 40! ) which really sticks out in my mind as exceptional. This blend reminds me of Cantillon Bourgogne, similar to a bio gueuze but with a nice touch more from the various wine casks used for aging. Some subtle sweetness and a bit more lacing/head retention then that of classic gueuze, the two are very similar but I got more tannins and oak from the JCN 11. A nice treat to try, cant wait to see what some age does to it..

Bottle thanks to Minh. 3500th rating. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is a lovely funk, oak, lemon zest. Medium mouthfeel with very nice funk, light sour, citrus, oak, lingering dryness. Really enjoyed this one.
