Have had this a couple times. The most memorable was in Brussels as part of a epic 5 course dinner paring. 750ml bottle pours out a light golden apple color. Nose is cognac funk barrel leather barnyard. Taste is more of the cognac funky barnyard some grape notes and plenty of the wood.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured copper and small white head that quickly dissipated. Very sweet oak aroma. Floral and barnyard in nose. Flavor is lemon and grapefruit zest. The sourness is well balanced by the oak and funk. Very rich mouthfeel for this brewery. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
75cl bottle via trade. It pours a hazy rich golden color with a minimal amount of large white bubbles. Aroma is rich dusty musty funky white grapes, lemon juice, horse blanket, basement. Taste is funky and lemony, with a mellow sweetness with notes of white wine and cognac, Plenty of stone fruit, basementm horse blanket and funk. Loads of lemon character, but not tart and puckering as normal Cantillon gueuze. This is incredibly mellow and soft, super juicy and easy to drink. Definitely less extreme than regular gueuze. Body is medium with fine sparkling carbonation. Overall, an interesting experiment and an excellent beer for sure.
