4.56/5  rDev +7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

bottled February 1st 2013

Appearance: (4.75)
Pours a hazy golden straw with a very tightly bubbled, two finger tall pure white head. The quickly dies down to a half finger's height, leaving no lacing behind in it's wake. For a gueuze, the head that remains is quite stable.

Aroma: (4.5)
Wow, as soon as the beer is poured your nostrils are struck by loads of fully matured, slightly cheesy Brettanomyces funk; plenty of musty horse blankets, wet hay, dried apricot flesh, peach and bright pear undertones. Beneath this funk are juicy notes of tart lemon and pineapple juice. As the beer warms, subtle vanilla from the oak barrels begin to surface amongst the funk.

Taste: (4.5)
Bright, tart lemon juice slaps your palate immediately, quickly followed by the huge, fruity Brettanomyces character that was so present in the aroma; rich dried apricot flesh, pineapple, musty dried leather, damp earth and hay. The beer finishes off dry and tart with long, deep lingering rustic tones of light stone fruits; mostly apricot and peach, pineapple and very creamy, slightly malty vanilla tone. Amazing.

Mouthfeel: (5)
Medium bodied, with a very creamy texture, assuming from the rolled oats that were utilized in the base beer. Firm carbonation.

Overall: (4.5)
The organic version of Gueuze from arguably the most sought after Lambic producer, Cantillon. The classic "Cantillon" funk is ever so present in this beer, but for me, what really separates this Gueuze from the rest of the lambic producers is the fact that the body is so silky and creamy. The beer is really is a balanced as a sour can get, as the Brett funk really cuts through, yet doesn't overwhelm the tartness of the aroma or flavor. Definitely worth seeking out.
