look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

i had the esteemed pleasure of having this on tap and in a bottle just one day apart, which is not only a rare treat, but something to almost feel guilty about, beer this sought after and all, but i am thankful and will remain that way. this beer, for carrying so much hype, isnt as distinct as i expected it to be, and in fact is an awful lot like the classic gueuze itself. i think the grapes are a little more vibrant in the on tap version, but the properties of both are quite similar honestly. the bottle pours hazy golden, still looking, but with a short white head. as per cantillon usual, there is as much funk as there is sour here, tons of musty oak in the nose, and i get the lambic part of it long before i get any fruit. the fruit is a little more dramatic in the flavor than the nose, and has a sweetness to it. more of a riesling thing to me than a muscat one, although i dont drink a ton of white wine, i get that vibe from it. the oak is nice on it, really robust and mellowing, and the sourness too is tempered by it. tart for sure, especially in the finish, mouth watering like crazy, but the fruit doesnt add as much to it as either of the berry beers they do, and certainly not as interesting as the elderflower mamouche i had earlier in the week. its hard when comparing so many world class sour beers, but for me, the fruit is lost a little in this one, not as radiant and memorable as others they make. i love the complexity and the ancient feel to this, how truly high quality it is is certainly obvious, but im not sure the grapes make it any more special than the lambic is in isolation. nice dry but mouth watering finish, good acidity, and maybe a touch undercarbed. overall outstanding beer, but not my favorite cantillon brew by any measure.
