A - It pours a radiant golden hue, and is capped with a small amount of off-white froth.

S - The nose announces delectable Cantillon funk, loud and proud. Lemon, lime zest, farm/pasture, musty basement, et al. The hoppiness is there too, adding big grassy notes which are sublimely integrated.

T - Great Gueuze flavor; tart, slightly briny, woody, lemony, grassy and musty. Acetic and green apple skin notes are minimal, just barely there, contributing tartness. There is a green flavor that is pleasantly pervasive which is a function of the cohesive melange of dry-hopping and Cantillon oak-induced elderflowery funk. I can't get enough of this stuff. Phenomenal.

M - Bright, tart, expansively flavorful on the palette.

O - One of the best beers ever; every bit as good as any Cantillon I've had.

A 2009 bottle.

A: Pours a cloudy golden/orange color. At first a two finger white head forms, but recedes in a second. Some lace is left behind.
S: Barnyard funky aromas and some yeast. There is a fruity tartness of apples, pears, and grapes but it is not overbearing. Floral and grassy hops with some citrus aromas. Some Dry wood, biscuit and crackers. This is great.
T: Again, this is just awesome. Funky barnyard flavors and yeast again. The perfect amount of sour and tartness with apple skins and grape tannin flavors. Some lingering hop flavors that are great. Grassy and floral with some citrus flavors. Quite A bit of hoppy flavors actually, but everything is perfectly balanced.
M/D: A medium body with the perfect amount of carbonation for the style. Crisp, very dry, and refreshing. This is incredibly smooth to drink. There is a lighter vinegar and acidic flavor here, and that makes it so easy to drink.

Plenty of funky flavors, sourness, and tartness here. Though the dry hopping really adds a unique depth of flavor. All in all a a great beer that should not be missed. One of my favorites.
