Had this back in 2010. Review somehow got deleted. Saved from notes.

Golden yellow color. A little bit of white head. Funky and lemon acidity. Earthy with some citrus. A bit of oak. Very similar to classic.

I liked this one, but for how much easier classic is to get, I'd probably go that route. A treat to have, nonetheless.

First had: on tap at Monk's, Philly, PA

The final keg of this beer, served at the end of Philly Beer Week 2013.

Not being a fan of the original Cantillon gueuze, I must say this one is markedly better in almost every aspect. Cloudy golden pour, with a thin layer of white bubbles for a head; minimal retention, random spots of lacing. Nice aroma of earthy funk, citrus tartness, mildly acetic, nice oak profile. Taste was very pleasant, crisp and lemony, barnyard funk, tart with a slight acetic quality making the salivary glands fire up a bit, very little of the uncomfortable wood/cork/cardboard flavor that pervades the original version, though there was a distinct clean oaky character that came through. Light-medium body, dry, moderate carbonation, enjoyable. Aged nicely. Very good overall.

my 500th beer! Its beenan awesome year and a half craft beer journey, and this was an awesome one to have for my 500th beer and for the end of my first philly beer week I actually participated in.
A - cloudy golden-yellow colour, small white head that stays for a little bit,
S - straw, kind of funky, light sour smell
T - mildly tart, not as sour a I expected but still very good, has a citrusy after taste
M - nice and crisp, very easily drinkable
O - very excellent beer, and very happy I got to try what I've heard was the last keg.
