very good lambic, definitly unique but the geuze funkiness remains. Very impressed with this and like it a lot. pours a clear reddish purple pink. funky aroma and dry pallate with a pure inviting finish. daniele (9063) - ITALY - JAN 1, 2009
rosso scarico schiuma media ma persistenza nulla il naso è vinoso un po di acidità legno in bocca uva asprigna piuttosto morbida finale un po legnoso Tmoney99 (14490) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Bottle. Poured hazy purple color with minimal fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good tart grape & yeasty aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy sour fruity flavor with a solid tart fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration.
This is a standout lambic.

Pours reddish with a quickly dissipating head.
Aroma is lughtly sour and vinegar with some oak - wood in teh nose.
Taste sour and yeasty with fruits that help the beer gain a very red wine like mouthfeel.
Not my favorite style, but the whole feel was really enjoyable. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 28, 2008
rbesg07, bottle opened at west brewpub. a welcome relief from the west beers. clear pink, rose and rusty tea aroma, slightly cidery, hints of sherbet, not as intense as the other lambics sampled at west

Bottle courtesy of tpd975. Pours a still clear deep redish copper. Aroma is vinous with red wine vinegar, rotting citrus, spicy brett, and oak. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and moderate to strong amount of acidity. Very good. BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Courtesy of the Otown December Tasting. Bottle. Pour was a nice light plum color. Aroma of soured red wine vinegar. Flavor was OMG!!! Sour sour sour. Honestly, it was over powering and so hard to detect other flavors. I definitely detected the wine, and some grapes, and that was about it. Not a fan of the sours. Sorry!!!

Altra straordinaria gueuze di Cantillon, non saprei come descriverla da quanto era buona; bottiglia da 75cl smezzata al Duca con Andre che è il miglior seguace del lambic. GilBier (75) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2008
Pours a hazy, deep brown burgundy colored beer, smallish bubbly white head with no retention or lacing
Funky horsey aroma, barnyard dominates. Strawberry, grape and sour cherry, and tannins from the barrels are noticeable. Huge barnyard funkiness, tartness and sourness up front, a little leather and oak, midpalate and the finish has fruitness all around, some red grape, strawberry, and sour cherry, lingering sourness and some tannic dryness on the finish with little to no alcohol detection. Light-to-medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry on the palate. Travlr (24816) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2010 Pink color with scant pink head. Aroma of strawberries, lemons and cherries. Full mouth. Sour and dry. Good balance and complexity.
Second rating: tap at Churchkey. Slightly less sourness, less dry, more vinous character. Still nicely complex. 4.3
