6oz pour out of an unlabeled bottle at Brasserie Cantillon at the conclusion of the brewery tour. Poured into a Cantillon taster glass 7/3/2014.

App- Hazy dark orange body, minimal white head, no lacing. Looks very placid.

Smell- Funky, lemon zest, orange, more funk, horse blanket and hay. Strong nose and very interesting. It smells an awful lot like the brewery itself!

Flavour- Lemon zest, oak, horse blanket, hay, straw, earth. Good amount of vinegar acidity, perhaps 6/10. Just about what I expected after the brewery tour, smelling and nearly tasting the air.

Mouthfeel- Low carbonation, a bit flat. Makes sense why they blend young and old lambic to make geuezes. Dry, acidic yet refreshing.

Overall- Interesting. It seems to basically be Bruocsella Grand Cru, but more raw and with a bit more carbonation.

The beer is a murky pale yellow/golden color. No head on the beer and no carbonation, still.

The beer is sour in aroma like vinegar. Notes of lemon grass, a lot of funk, some goat, and you can smell the acidity.

The beer bites your tongue, very sour and acidic with some lactic acid.

Mouthfeel is medium and a little hard to make our with the sourness.

The beer is very sharp in the finish, not a rounded sourness.
