Thanks to Dave/Blake for this bottle.

375ml. Bottled: 9/17/10

Capped and corked bottle to Allagash tulip at about 50 degrees.

A: Easy pour leads to a nice two finger wide head that dissipate fairly quickly. Beer is a very nice light golden colored hue, slightly hazy. Steady steam of bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. This is a nice looking beer. 4.5

S: Smell is definitely funky. Getting some slight apple cider, belgian yeast, slight smell of alcohol. 4.0

T: Quite tart, lemon, really tough to describe the flavor of this beer but I like it. Has somewhat of a white wine or champagne flavor but much more satisfying with a slight vinegar taste. 4.5

M: Very nice level of carbonation. Very prickly on the tongue 4.0

O: Overall an awesome offering from Cantillon. Really enjoying this beer. 4.5

Thanks again to Dave and Blake for this bottle. Glad I have one more in the cellar.

I was able to try this beer at a brilliant beer tasting at my uncle Peter's place. My nephew Michael brought this beer with him. Thanks for sharing Michael.

A - A hazy yellow beer with a thin white ring that goes for a head.

S - A cherry sour kind of smell. I wasn't expecting this from a Gueuze style.

T - Like I said; a cherry sour.

M - A medium carbonated beer and sour.

O - This is not my style, just to damn sour. I just can't understand that some people love this stuff.

Bottled July 7 2011. Straight from the brewery via the dingo. This is the 100% bio label with the mannequin pis statue on it.
Poured into Cantiloon glass.

Pours a white head. Fades to a ring. Color is a vibrant golden orange.

Aroma: Muskmelon fruitiness. Lemon citrus. A mix of tropical fruits. Very funky. Basement must and horse blanket. A little oak.

Taste: More old tasting than the nose at first. Then the fruits hit. Basement must, cobweb, and wet horse blanket. Then the mix of fruits come in. Acidic and sour. Funky.

Mouthfeel: Sour and tart. Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, this is an excellent beer and something I will always enjoy. A lot of great flavors and very easy to drink. Don't ever pass this one down.

A 750ml pour into a mini duvel tulip.
Appearance - a nice light orangy color, pretty clear.
Smell - smells great. There's something familiar about it but can't put my finger on it. Maybe vinegary? But I really enjoy that.
tatse - excellent.
mouthfeel - smooth and a little fizzy at the same time.
overall - a real treat.

750ml corked and capped bottle from 2011 poured into a Hill Farmstead tulip.

Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Nose is smooth and funky, nutty, crisp and slightly fruity.

Taste is funky and sour but still very drinkable and super dry on the finish, it has a distinct cantillon funk that is hard to explain but exceptionally delicious. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Overall its about the perfect Geueze.

From notes, bottle to white wine glasses on 12-22 with the girl. My first Cantillion.

A- Poured like champagne on the side of glass yielding thin head and a golden hay color. Hazy and nice carbonation rising throughout.

S- Nice funk to it. A little barnyard like things have been eating and then doing what comes next. But nice.

T- Love that tart. Like you just want to slowly let it sift into your mouth and let the sour hit, then the flavors, apple, cider, some pear and then barnyard with a smooth finish. You can taste the quality.

M- I love the puckering but it lets you move into some real nice flavors and leaves you wanting another pucker.

O- I haven't gotten into to much Gueze, Wild, Sour territory so what a great start. Really awesome.
