Appearance - The beer was a golden straw yellow color with a bubbly white head.

Smell - The acidity of the style is present, but it takes a turn toward lime.

Taste- Amid the acidity, the lime taste catches my attention. It is not overly bitter citrus, but very pleasant. Toward the aftertaste, there is a dry oak sensation. The acidity is well balanced by the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - This Gueuze will make you pucker. It is dry at the end, making you thirsty for more.

Overall - As far as I am concerned, this is a near perfect example of the style.

2013 vintage

Thanks to mikecharley for sending this over via trade.


A: Pours a clear dark straw yellow with just over 1 fingers width of bright white head which dissipates down fairly quickly and leaves very little lacing. 4

S: Very tart with lactic acidity, lots of vinegar notes as well. Some oak, fair amount of cheese like funk. Very strong aromas as a whole. 4.25

T: Not as sour as the nose, or as other Cantillons Ive had. Lactic acidity, lemon-lime citrus, some sweet esters, oaky vanilla on the finish. Funky notes are there with a burnt plastic like quality. Subtle bitterness which is a bit of a surprise, but it is more of a tart bitterness. 4.25

M/:D Lighter bodied, carbonation appropriately high, somewhat drying on the finish, drinkability is good. 4

O: Very good, but still a bit disappointing as I have exceedingly high expectations from Cantillon. My least favorite Cantillon to date, that being said its still better than 95% or beers Ive had and Id still drink this any day of the week. 4.25

Bottling date is 27 August 2013. Almost a year old.

A: Oddly enough there was some liquid under the cap, above the cork. Not sure if that's a good sign. Pours a hazy, orange-gold? Medium sized fizzy white head. Decent head retention but zero lacing as you'd expect.

S: Lots of tart fruit aromas. Apricots and apples primarily. Light citrus rind. Touch of sulfur.

T: Sour apples and apricots again. Super tart of course. Tart and funky as hell in fact. Super bitter orange peel. So bitter, it's almost bile-like. Sulfur-like, rubber-like aftertaste that hangs around forever. Tastes like a car did a burnout in my mouth between sips.

M: Medium bodied, super tart and bitter.

O: Interesting transition of sweet and tasty fruitiness up front that quickly turns sour, then funky. It's pretty good but that burning rubber and bile aftertaste is a bit hard to get past.
