    Pours slightly hazy golden with a fairly thick eggshell head. Strong, sharp aroma is mainly pear and sour apple with a hint of yeast. Delightfully sour-fruity flavor has firm apple, pear and malt notes plus hints of yeast and butterscotch. Texture is lively and firm. Pucker up!

    Sampled on 12/4/2010. Bottled on Dec 19, 2008. This gueuze pours a medium orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Medium to small sized white foamy head. The aroma is sour, fruity, funky and barnyard. A medium bodied gueuze. The malts are fruity, funky, musty and tart. Fruity and funky. Nicely balanced. There is a lot of tartness, and lots of funkiness balanced with a nice fruitiness. Good carbonation. Finish is dry. Nice crisp clean finish. Amazing beer. Will age extremely well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is funky and tart.

    Recently, a downtown establishment has brought in several of the Cantillon beers, including the entire Lou Pepe line (Framboise, Kriek, Gueuze)........and I've tried ALL of them. This was a hazy orange gold pour, no head, and an earthy aroma of must and old fruit. The flavour was sweet and sour, with a weak champagne feel. Excellent.

    Bottle: Poured a dark golden orange color lambic with a quite large bubbly head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of sour notes with some distinctive oak and not much acidity which kind of surprised me. Taste was very refreshing with some sour notes and some oak; I was expecting more acidity and some barnyard notes but those were almost completely absent. Well done but considering the price difference I would stick with the regular gueuze.

    (2002). Orange colour, not much head. Aroma is Cantillonish sourness along with fruits and berries. Smooth sourish wooden flavour with some frutiy hints. Very soft and smooth and wellbalanced Cantillon.

    Cloudy yellow appearance, almost beige with a small firm white head. Soft, deep and wild aroma of hay, fresh grass, stable and citrus peels. Sour and deep flavour of hay, cask and hay. Soft creamy mouthfeel. Sour, well-balanced finish of wood and lemon. Excellent Geueze!

    05.22.05 1999 750 thanks to Mullman at jimmack04 invitational. I’m always tentative and anxious going into a lambic tasting because as much as I want to love them I really have to work at it. Light grass, mold, earth aromas. Some honey. Soft and grassy and dry in a way not unlike a saison, quite effy despite its age. This lambic is more mild and pleasant than most other Cantillons I’ve had. It’s less sour and much more drinkable than I expected. Thanks MullDude!

    Bottled 2004. Poured light orange color, head was okay. Aroma was typical for this style. Flavor was different the other others i have had from this style. The had a sprite citrus flavor when it started not as sour until the aftertaste when the sour twisted my tounge. As it warmed the sourness was not quite as stong.

    Bottled 2004, sticker 2002. Poured an orange yellow color with an ok head that laced ok (not great). The aroma was typical for the style, a bit more wild (barnyard, horseblanket-like) than other top examples of the style. The flavor was incredibly complex, starting out with some sweet citrus notes, transitioning to a butt-kicking sour-tartness aftertaste of all funky horseblankets, hay, barnyard, and you name it, all accentuated by significant carbonation zing or something.... the after aftertaste that settled in the mouth was cheesy. Mouthfeel was moderate to heavy for the style, very nice. Not my preferred flavors in the style (I liked the Cuvee Renee much better), but certainly complex and deserving of some kudos for that very reason.

    Pours with a golden body topped by a thin to medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s tart and sour with a slight funk and a little lemon. Light to medium bodied, crisp and dry.
