750mL bottle poured into a snifter. It pours a slightly hazy medium orange color with one finger of head. No lacing on the glass. The smell is fairly tart, with just a hint of that classic Cantillon funk. The taste is tart and sweet, and there's just a little bit of funkiness going on. I really was expecting more of that great funkadelic flavor, like George Clinton jumping out of the bottle at me. Maybe it needed more aging. The mouthfeel was very nice and thick, but had great carbonation. The drinkability was very good. A nice lambic from the team at Cantillon.

1999 Vintage - A slightly different take on the gueuze. Instead of being the blend of an old and a young lambic, it is the blend of two older lambics. Because of that, I think this is a little bit more mellow than the normal traditional gueuze. It pours a clear gold with a slight orange tinit and a spitzy head that dissipates fast. The aroma is musty with some horse blanket, a sourness, and floral and honey notes. It is sour almost mouth puckering, with an almost vinegar like acidity and slight taste of apples , yeast, and some barnyard and dirt. The body is nice and light with a very dry finish.
