375ml bottle, dated December 3, 2010, poured into a Cantillon signature gueuze tumbler.
The beer pours a slightly hazy copper color, hues of gold, straw and orange with a lovely, billowing white head, fizzy yet soapy that has moderate retention leaving a few spots of lace behind. The aroma is a nice, lots of funk, wildflower, light citrus, white peppercorn with a touch of sweet pale grain. It's delicate and complex, but it's note quite as refined as a Drie Fonteinen gueuze. The flavors are nice, lots of wild funk, grapefruit and lemon citrus with a host of floral attributes, spicy peppercorn with some lively yeast flavors. The body is lively, effervescent, delicate and playful and it has a nice easy finish.
Verdict: A wonderful gueuze from Cantillon and one of the finest gueuzes available. I personally prefer the gueuzes from Drie Fonteinen but find that Cantillon makes the superior fruited lambic, but this gueuze is nothing to scoff at, a delight to drink.
