375 ml. Bottle poured into my founder's tulip. Vintage 09'.

A: Hazy orangish yellow color. A finger of soapy white head appears then fades to a thin rim. Nice lace and retention.

A: Tart off the bat with notes of Lemongrass, sour green apples, and white grapes. Maybe some notes of wheat and some grassy hops.

T: The two and a half years this has spent in the bottle has really done this justice. Great balance of sweet and sour. The tartness is not overpowering, just about perfect for the style. Again, notes of white grape and green apple dominate.

M: light body, and aggressive carbonation.

O: Really great beer. So glad I let this sit for a couple years, I think I mellowed it quite a bit. Highly recommended. Skal.

A - This beer pours a nice orange amber color. A vigorous pour yielded almost 2-fingers of pure white head on top. The head has good retention, and it leaves behind a few specs of lace on the glass.

S - The nose is nice and tart up front. There are some aromas of green apple, lemon, and some earthy grassiness. There are also some nice notes of brett and funkiness.

T - The taste follows the nose pretty well. The sour green apple stands out more and so does the lemon. There is a some nice earthy grassy flavors and a nice bit of funk. The finish leaves some lingering dry funkiness, sourness, grass, and lemon flavors on the palate.

M - This has a medium body and pretty good carbonation. It goes down easy and has a nice tartness to it. It is also a bit acidic, and there is some dryness on the back end. It has a nice bit of puckering sourness to it.

O - This has great drinkability. It is an awesome tasting beer, and I could drink it all night long. This is a really good example of the style and I would definitely pick up some more of this. I highly recommend trying it.

Special thanks to Evan for this one. Bottled September 17th 2011

A- Hazy orange pour with a thin white cap that slowly disappears. lacing is minimal.

S- Lemon, grass and full on funk. The beer is making my mouth water. Typical Cantillon smells of hay, horse blanket and damp barn.

T- Sour, funky and delicious. This thing is a triple threat. Starts off with a puckering lemon, cranberry sour that quickly hits its stride with full on barnyard funk. There is a grassy aftertaste that makes my mouth water for more.

M- Thin with oodles of carbonation making this sour and prickly on the tongue.

O- This one is remarkable. A true bench mark for all other gueuzes on the market.
