Bottle 2008 Vintage many thanks to MrKennedy

A - 100% clear light gold, lively off white head.

S - sour, lemons, Cantillon-style.

T - surprisingly restrained and delicate, vinous, sour of course, and an odd hint of apricot (!).

M - lively, zesty, lightweight.

O - a real find in terms of drinkability. Reading the website after confrims the idea of subtle in this style and it works a treat.

2009 Vingate. 750 ml bottled 27th December 2011. Served in a stemmed Cantillon lambic glass

Appearance: Pours a bright golden color with a thin film coating that dissipates quickly to a thin white color. Body is lightly hazy with light visible carbonation streaming throughout the glass.

Smell: Vinegar, tart green apple, white grape, light barnyard and a hint of oak. Overall aroma strength is pretty weak.

Taste: Moderate sourness/acidity, more vinegar than lactic. Flavors follow the aroma with white grape and green apple being most prominent. Additional notes of oak (stronger than in the aroma) and slightly herbal.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, somewhat thin mouthfeel. Carbonation is low but adequate. Finishes tart and dry with a very mild bitterness.

Overall: I'm a huge Cantillon fan and their regular gueuze is one of my favorites, so I had very high expectations coming into this. With that being said, I was definitely disappointed in this one. It's a good gueuze for sure, but doesn't live up to it's hype or up to the standard of other Cantillon beers.

750ml, Delirium Cafe

2006 Vintage

Pale and very clear - gueuze tumbler. Definitely a bigger layer of flavor and more sour finish than the standard gueuze. Barnyard funk, hay, citrus zest, a touch acidic, white grape skin, brett. Liked this very much - it was rainin Lou Pepe's in Brussels!
