375mL bottle from ThatCracker (thanks again!). Bottled 12/14. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku.

Pours a hazy, orangey straw yellow with a dense, frothy three fingers of white head. The pale foam shrinks back to a broken halo without leaving any lacing to speak of.

Smartly sour nose. Semi sour fruits, sugar, faintly earthy and a little vinegar. Nice.

A pleasantly earthy sourness pervades the flavor. Bracingly sour with lemon peel, an earthy Brett-like funk, faint apricot, trace sugar and a vaguely vegital intermittent mild bitterness. While it is plenty easy to drink, this is sour enough to prevent gulping.

Light body with an almost distant carbonation that seems to be seen more than felt. Aftertaste is sour, earthy and vaguely fruity.

I can definitely see how this is the gold standard of the style. I'm quite happy to have made a friend that is able and willing to share some of this legendary brewery's beers. Cantillon's Geuze is completely worth a try if you have the opportunity.
