Sparkling gold, off-white collar.

Holy funk! It's a challenging, confusing nose--I'm getting a patch of weeds, acetic olive brine, sherry vinegar, and cedar.

Taste is oak and tannin funk, white grape skin, grapefruit rind, brine, and black peppercorn. Pungent hoppiness seems to develop as it warms, and maybe a little kerosene.

Med body, semi-dry .

Not a gueuze guy, I rate this below Lou Pepe's average.
But if ever dryness could coexist with full flavor, it was in this 2013 vintage.
Never will I pay $40 again for a 1/2 bottle of beer... albeit a bomber I shared. But Lou Pepe is on the "1001" list and this bottle pushed me over the top of my 502 goal... so I guess the value has been rationalized.

Definitely don't get to drink Cantillon as often as I would like and when I do, its usually a treat. This was no exception; a solid gueuze that was enjoyable from start to finish.
