Bottled in 2009.
A: Pours a rather dark burgandy/brown color with significant haze and sediment, even when decanted. Has more of a head than I expected.
S: Ridiculously intense compared to other cantillon. Starts off extremely funky/vinegary. The only word I can use to describe this smell is vomit. Also has woody/spicy characteristics. I like my beers funky/sour. However, this nose is too much.
T: OK, the taste is significantly better than the nose. Amazingly complex flavor featuring strong oak, strong funkiness, vinuous wine flavors, tart cherries, red grapes, balsamic vinegar, and much more. Extremely dry.
M: Dry, tannic, great carbonation, relatively heavy body with a wine-like feel.
D: The nose hurts drinkability a bit. However, the taste and mouthfeel really make up for it. I could definilty do a whole 750 or two no problem.

My only bottle split with friends two nights ago before leaving on a very long road trip. Notes taken during consumption.

A- Deep muddy purple pink hue with a small fizzy head that falls from one finger to nothing. I would say retention is low-minimal for the style. No lace or legs but the brew itself has a very beautiful color.
S- Fresh cantillon bug produced funk blend is strong with added Merlot grapes that are quite massive. Notes of oak, lemon, lactic and acetic, most vinous of Cantillon for me.
T- Follows the nose very closely with a massive grape vinous feel that brings stems and all. This is above the classic Cantillon funk blend, acetic and lactic, some cherry brett basement barnyard.
MF- Dried out light bodied with high end carbonation bringing some fizz to the palate but key to support the flavors. Finishes with a medium sourness not quite as high as other Cantillon.
Vinous, Merlot grape fruit bomb with the classic Cantillon Gueuze feel. It blends together well and creates a very refreshing, hybrid style beverage between beer and wine.
