There is a reason this is one of the top ranked gueuzes in the world. Cantillon sticks to the traditional methods and does it better than almost everyone. This beer is full of carbonation with just the right amount of sourness offset by a little bitterness on the finish.

375ml bottle. 2014 vintage. Poured into a tulip.

A: Golden. Hazy.
S: Tart sourness. Fig.
T: Intense vinegar sourness. Fig and plum. Funky. A little bit balsamic. Dry.
M: Light bodied with medium high carbonation.
O: Not my preferred everyday style. But when I want something tasting sour I would pick up this.

Pours a slightly hazy straw colored golden yellow with a thin layer of active carbonation.

Citric acidity, slight funk, crisp, and dry.

Subtle grape leads into tart citrus, light musty funk, and refreshingly dry.

Light-bodied, medium-high carbonation, tart, dry, and refreshing.

Overall, this beer is all about subtle nuances, but does not disappoint.
