[email protected], Helsinki. Hazy orangeish golden colour, no head. Aroma is tart and sour wooden notes along with some slight acidic and grassy notes. Flavour is quite much the same, but is also leaning towards more floral and grassy notes than the aroma was showing. Mellows out with aging, compared to when I had it fresh.

Bottle at the pub. Hazy golden color, huge fluffy white head. Aroma of extreme dust, attic and lemon rind. Taste is wet blanket. Pretty simle, but nice enough.

37.5 cl bottle at Pikkulintu, on July 22, 2011
Blue Label
Clear pale golden color, white head. Acidic, sour, apple, stable scent. Sour, oh so sour taste, like red currants when green and unripe. Mouthpuckering sour mouthfeel. Loads of hawthorne, no bitterness.

gyllenbock (9156) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2011
Bottle at Pikkulintu in July 2011. Hazy golden with a minimal head. Typical tart aroma of Cantillon. Very nice and tart taste but also refreshing with green apples, hay and wood. 10 EUR for a bottle of 37,5 cl is a very good price.

Hermod (7843) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle @ pikkulintu. Finally got to try this! Pours golden color with a lasting white head. Green, crisp apples, tartness. Amazing aroma. Flavor has green apples, tartness, apple seed, and in the finish you get more fresh apple juice notes. Huge beer, still in excellent condition.

vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle(blue label) at Pikkulintu(this place was awesome, what a way to start it off as well). Golden pour with some white head. NIce tartness, sour fruits,, brett and other funky aromas. Flavor is tart but not overly acidic, very nice gueuze.

SaintMatty (7362) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2011
375ml Bottle Helsinki- Hazy golden in colour. A surprisingly slightly hoppy but sour aroma. Tart and musty taste which is quite pleasant and refreshing.
