This one was bottled 2/26/2012.

Appearance is deep, hazy gold with lots of carbonation, but no head. Smells vibrant, lemony, stone fruit, and a hint of barnyard. Tastes almost identical to how it smells, very pleasant, light funk and oak in the aftertaste. Highly effervescent.

Ultimately, this is a beautiful beer.

From a bottle, pours a straw yellow color with fizzy white head.

The smell is funk, lemon, cheese, barnyard must, zesty. The flavor is lemon, white grape, good funk character, a little cheese, hay and straw. The mouthfeel is pretty balanced, not too acidic, pretty drinkable.

Overall, this was a big hit for me.

I think this bottle might have been sitting on the shelf too long.

This is one of the most acidic, sourest beers ever. I love it. Will leave better notes later.

Intense, puckering bitterness. Almost like lemon juice. Dry, white wine-like quality. White grape flavor. Mild oak. High carbonation is unexpected yet warmly welcomed on the palate. When I think of a gueuze, this is exactly what comes to mind.

Sour was the good part. Price was the bad part. Average was everything in between.

Soft copper gold with little haze on the initial pour, moderate champagne like carbonation, and 5 fingers of off white head that fades moderately fast.

Sour, funky, musty, macaroni, very much like a dank cellar.

Sour but light initially in the body, then the acid level increases. Funky, hay, horse blanket, musty macaroni, dank musky cellar.

Light dry body with a moderately high amount of champagne like carbonation.

Excellent brew. No sweetness in this one, bringing it back to the style of Cantillon. Very sour, very dry, seems to get more acidic near the end of each sip. Found in Kunming, drank here May 2nd, 2015 after a long day of dissembling my house to prepare for our move to Thailand in 4 days.

A proper golden color. Decent carbonation but small head. Smell is fairly subtle, stonefruity, with a touch of "rust." Quite sour; lots of lactic acidity. Fruitiness in the middle and finish, but the sourness lingers for a while in the aftertaste. No discernible funkiness.
