Poured from a 25 oz bottle into a Cantillon tulip. Purchased in Wakefield, Rhode Island.

A- Pours a golden-orange, slightly hazy body with 2" fizzy white head that reduces quickly and leaves no lacing.

S- The first aroma upon popping the cork was a musty, bready, leathery, earthy funk sitting on an acidic, lemony, tart backbone. Smells like other sours I've had but more pungent and balanced.

T- Oh my god that's amazing. The first sip of my first Cantillon beer literally put a smile on my face. The second it hits your tongue you get a mouth puckering tartness that has lemon, green apple, and white vinegar notes. The follow through reveals some funky notes, including fermented fruit, leather, and a nice earthyness. Oak is present throughout the whole experience, really balancing everything and creating a super complex beer.

M- Light and crisp, medium carbonation. Really sip-demanding.

I'm glad that I tried the Classic Geueze as my first Cantillon beer. It's complexity, balance, drinkibility, and magnificent flavors really make for a world class brew. Definitely the best sour that I've ever tasted. Seek it out.

Cantillon Gueuze.

Sharp acetic sour with mellowed nuttiness, absolutely tart lemon rind, must, hay, and basement muck. Royally interesting.

Follows the nose. Sharp and tart. Tart lemon rind, wet hay, funkiness, mushroom, Bretty muck, languid nuttiness, wheat malts, and white vinegar. Unreal, how the first sixth of the bottle tastes compared to the middle two-thirds. Really sharp white cheddar note, with rotted citrus. Exquisite.

Thinner and spritzier. Has a sour cunning with a lightly spicy finish, which I like.

Best gueuze that I have had, thus far. Need I recommend it??
