2013 vintage at the brewery.

Aroma is very similar to Cantillon's Classic/Oude Gueuze, except all the funky barnyard notes don't all jump out at once the moment you first peek your nose in the glass. Instead, you get a superbly balanced mix of fresh lemons, wet hay, and some subtle stone fruit. And of course this wouldn't be a Cantillon beer if it didn't have any of the signature funky oak in the back end.

Nose is well-translated on the tongue, but with admirable balance; the sour, the funk, the oak, all masterfully share their command of the labial turf with no one element overpowering the other. It's actually ridiculous how well-balanced this beer is -- you could drink bottles upon bottles of this and your tongue would not get tired. The flavor profile also remains remarkably consistent all throughout the drinking experience; I think I like this at slightly colder than serving temperature.

Higher carbonation than the classic Gueuze with the same medium-light body. Simply the best, hands down
