In March 2005, the brewery Cantillon had bought second hands barrels in the region of Cognac. For 15 years, the wood had been impregnate with cognac. Then for 2 years, our lambic has extracted all the flavors and aromas to make a unique gueuze. The name comes from the geographic location of the brewery.

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.

Bottle at WTWBA 2015 in Minneapolis. Highlight of the event for me. Slight hazy gold pour. Aroma and taste of oak, cognac, funk, and some cheese. Delicious!

Bottle thanks to Kurt. Decanted, pours a hazy gold with medium frothy white head. The aroma is strong funk, cognac, barnyard. Medium mouth, nice funk, cognac is very subtle, leather, grape, light tartness, very impressive.

Drank at the Cantillon brewery. This one is aged in oak barrels that had previously housed cognac. You can definitely taste and smell the cognac and the oak. I think this might be my favourite. Very rich oak. Very balanced.

Bottle at cantillon . Light yellow body looks like white wine. Faint bourbon aroma , sour vin, oak, smooth palate , some balance to he dryness from the bourbon I believe . Dry but not as puckering as the lsdt one. Awesome beer

Enjoyed at Cantillon. Pours an Apple juice colour. Aromas are some mild funk and sour. I get some boozy cognac too. Flavours are funk, cheese, citrus rind, and some oaky cognac barrel. Excellent.

Bottle at Cantillon. Last one before we went. Incredibly enjoyable morning but you have to eat at some point and sadly, Cantillon dont serve food. The staff were breaking in to their lunch on the table next to us whilst drinking an unlabelled mystery lambic which they would only refer to as the beer that doesnt exist yet. My understanding is that it will exist for us mere mortals in the coming weeks. Anyway, the 50N-4E was first poured into an ostentatious glass decanter then in to my glass. Golden with a White head. Lemony citrus on the nose. Plenty of funk and acidity. Woody, tart and well balanced. The cognac is there but not in a massive way. It balances things surprisingly well lending a richness. Lots going on.
