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.

Glass poured from bottle at brewery.

A-Golden color with a few CO2 bubbles rising to surface a little bit of white foam on edges of glass.

S-Earthy wild yeasts dominate-funky.

T-Sour with a fairly long finish with a smooth end that keeps you needing to drink more.

M-First sip is definitely puckering and wakes you up. Otherwise is smooth and not overpowered with a carbonation bite.

D-A whole bottle of this 1 might give me a sour stomach.

O-The standard for which all other gueuzes are measured. A beer that must be drank with a clean slate and an open mind. A unique and interesting beer for sure.

Served from a 375mL bottle purchase at CBX; bottled on 03-09-11 and was corked and capped. Poured into a NB Globe...

A: Hazy copper/golden orange in color with a thin white head and no lacing.

S: Tart fruit, apple, white grape, sour

T: Tart but not too sour, refreshing funk and wood as it warms. Alcohol is almost unnoticeable and flavors quickly leave the tongue...making me want more.

M: Thin, but not watery. Light to medium carbonation.

D: Very drinkable. Little on the higher priced side for regular consumption but a great treat and an awesome introduction into gueuze.
