Cantillon's classic Gueuze is everything it's modest name implies and more. With a honey-like appearance and a cap of pure white bubbles, it's simply beautiful. It's only minimal haze shows that it is lightly carbonated. It shines radiantly! The sweet aroma reminds one of plums, sour apple, cider vinegar, and a slight 'barnyard' funk. The flavor envelops the drinker in stages... right off the bat, tart fruit esters, like sour cherry and the aforementioned plum wash over the palate, quickly giving way to a funky/yeasty middle and a strong grapefruit/citrus aspect. The mouth feel is slightly wine-like, and seriously has something in common with fresh spring water... it's so very refreshing. The finish mostly acidic and, crisply bitter. Overall, this fine beverage is expertly balanced, probably the biggest remarkable aspect here. Additionally, it's not so harsh going down either, it's rather delicate and drinkable. Cantillon's Gueuze is truly an archetype for the style.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Mr. Dunderbak's. Served in a large tulip glass.
A: Hazy deep gold with a big fluffy white head - this almost glows in the light. Moderate visible carbonation.
S: Dry, modest funky barnyard, with a bit of tart fleshy fruit.
T: Dry, tartness, funk and sour, with almost apricot and grape flavors in the back of the mouth and on the exhale. Develops more lemon citric tartness and funk as it warms through the drink.
M: Light crisp body, good carbonation sensation, and very low alcohol presence.
O: Very, very good. Although there is less funk than I expected (at least on draft), truly a very good beer.
Serving type: on-tap
