A - Ruby red body with a light clean white head to it
S - Blueberries, sweet tarts, blue cheese and barnyard funk
T - Really funky with lots of blue cheese and barnyard, not tart as all but instead is all funk. Light tart blue berries but barely blueberries or tartness to it. It was a pure funk bomb
M - Really dry and slightly watery body. A slight thickness from the funk remains on the tongue kinda like the creamy layer that remains after you eat some blue cheese
O - Not that impressed and thought this was really overrated as this was one of my least favorite Cantillon to date. Really a funky beer but not much tartness or fruit flavor to it

Huge thanks to danieelol for sharing. 375mL bottle split 4 ways. Reviewed from notes.
Gorgeous crimson with a surprisingly resilient small white head which picks up some of the colouring from the beer. Abates to a collar. Looks lovely.
Nose shows delightfully honed acidity. Surprisingly modest blueberry but beautiful integration. Lightly musty, musky and tannic.
The base Cantillon gueuze is quite conspicuous. Blueberry is again mellow but seamlessly integrated. Base gueuze notes of jalapeno and lemon are well represented.
Assertive sourness but definitely much reduced compared with most other Loons. Mild tannins. Satisfying and great drinkability.
Only had about 3 oz which probably biases my rating downwards, as this seemed uncharacteristically subtle and restrained (for Cantillon), the sort of beer that takes a bit more volume to deconstruct.

2012. Thanks to Owen for facilitating this acquisition.
Pours a beautiful raspberry colour with nice white head. Glorious red as though it was made with raspberries. Nose is lactic funk, wine, blueberries, creaminess, some subdued perfume, little burnt rubber.
Taste is grapes, red wine, creamy, dried oak, almost oyster-esque decadent sourness and drying finish.
Mouthfeel is drying, oaky and champagne-y. Similar finish to most Cantillons.
This is not a let down and totally worth it. Perhaps rating a bit according to the occasion but still deserving of praise.
