This was really musty, dry and sour all around. Quite enjoyable between the bigger beers and really thankful I got to try it. The funk was too jaw locking, I could easily keep sipping it.

World Class is right! Best gueuze I've ever had (bottle reviewed was from 2012). A tad sour, mild funkiness - just the way I like a classic gueuze - exceptional balance throughout! My assumption is that the sourness would have been much higher if the bottling date was more recent and so I'm glad I waited to pop this one until now.

Don't think this one reaches the heights of 3F's Oude Geuze (which I've had at similar ages to this one), lacking its depth/complexity of both aroma/taste, but what does recommend this one is its lightness of feel and great drinkability. It offers some nice fruitiness in the nose, along with a bit of funk that sort of lingers beneath the surface, never dominating but always popping up every now and then to remind you it's there. Palate is sweet apple tartness along with some slight vinegary funk. Sure, there are probably some other notes I could imagine, but that's the gist. I appreciate that the sour character doesn't completely scorch the tongue. This is solid stuff.

Old check in from a glass at deccios armonk. Thought I would get over the flavor but the age on made it hard to finish the bottle myself.

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.
