4.05/5 rDev -2.2%
I had this 1 yr old lambic side by side with the bottled Geuuze at Cantillion, served slightly chilled in a taster.
The color is golden with light haze and no head with some small bubbles -but it has a 'cask look' meaning lightly carbonation appearance and no lace.
The smell is great with sour aroma of wild yeast with light funk and wood with mild malt and lemon rind with tangy tropical scent. The feel is dry and tangy with light body and very sour effect with woody tannin and dry vinous and sour finish with practically no carbonation -(cellar temp/flat)
The flavor is good with a raw yet not extreme sour flavor of lambic with mild funk -still refined in its unblended young form fresh with lemony and woody elements yet the nice tropical tangy juicy flavor is not as intense with light acidity. Overall very good and was interesting to try side by side with a more finished tasting fresh bottle of Gueuze which lets you understand the progression of the flavor and feel better.

A: Really couldy but fine particles floating within, slightly milky, no carbonation, no head.
S: The sour, grainy, mash and the same oak aged scent that pervades the brewery all come through in this beer. Dry and Fruity.
T: No carbonation, grain mash and oak, dry, almost an apricot quality, sour.
M: No carbonation, very dry.
O: Drank at Cantillon Brewery, awesome experience. This one came with the brewery tour.
