750 ml capped and corked bottle, back label says bottled 24 September 2012, best before September 2022. Labeled as Cuvée St-Gilloise. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, it's smells like apricots, hay, funk, citrus peel and some peppery spice. The brew tastes like citrus (mostly lemon) peel, hay, funk, bready/grainy malt, oak, peppery spice, earthy/floralness, and some white grapes. There's a nice mix of tartness, fruitiness, and funky/earthiness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and easy to drink with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was good, definitely worth picking up if you come across some!

On tap at Brouwers!

I was a bit disappointed! It just wasn't sour enough for me. Compared to other Cantillons I tried, this was the least puckering for me.

Very complex though. Lemon, white grapes, barn yard.

My first Cantillon. Bottled 2012.

Pours with a nice thick head and retains this throughout glass. Nice funk up front with a delicious tart slightly sour finish. Very enjoyable, glad I was able to pick this up at the beer mongers cellar sale.
