1781st Review on BA
Bottle to Tumbler & Wine Glass
750 Cork and Cap

2010 Vintage

App- The color of a ripe orange, consider it a golden sunset on bottom. A 1" head and fades to a couple dotted bubbles. A bit of sediment in the globe glass. More light shined in the tumbler.

Smell- This was a muted funk with some hay, cheese, wheat and barnyard. To me this wasnt as bright on the nose as some other Cantillons I have had. As this warms I got more of a cheesy, butter and hay aroma.

Taste- A fuller gueuze flavor. This had more of a thicker hay & funk flavor. A bit of citrus was there in terms of a orange rind flavor (IMO). A little sour to it. The funk is a bit of an old cheese flavor. A very full flavor and delicious as expected.

Mouth- A medium body with a slightly more medium carbonation. More full hay and cheese on the residual flavor. Not as bright or spritzy as the other Cantillons I have had. More of a sipper to relax and enjoy.

Drink- This was a fantastic gueuze. Would love to let this one sit for a while and see what happens.

Light amber in color with a bit of haziness. A minuscule layer of off white foam covers the majority of the top of the beer. Aroma of pineapple and green apples is very compelling. The body is moderately carbonated,crisp,and dry. The front of the palate is sharp with a champagne like taste that quickly tuns to pineapple and green apple with a quick dry finish. Very refreshing.
