COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 don’t 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 doesn’t exist yet’. My understanding is that it will exist for us mere mortals in the coming weeks. Anyway, the 50°N-4°E 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.

Bottle shared by jackl, 5/15/15. Thanks! Slightly hazy golden, thin fizzy head, decent retention. Aroma of pepper, citrus, funk, leather, wood, tannic grape. The taste is pale malt, tannic wine, funk, horseblanket, leather, wood. Medium bodied, low carbonation, lingering tartness.

2012 bottle thanks to angst! And thanks to Tony for helping with the trade. Aroma is ultra funky. Big moldy cheese and barnyard, moderate sour lemon, oak, and white wine. Tastes the same. More oak and white wine though. Incredibly smooth.

Bottle shared by Kevin at SLO Beer Bro night in June. Pours a very light orange to yellow with no carb. Other glasses were poured a little harder and got a slight bit of bubble but nothing to speak of in my taster. Aroma is white wine, funk and some shoe leather. Taste is very thin and again white wine forward. Slight alcohol booze but more in that "this is likely going to give me a hangover" kind of way. Hands down my least favorite Cantillon to date.

Bottle shared at Cantillon, 12 May 15. Pours a rich straw yellow. Aroma is barrel, slight cognac, taste is complex sour, but tempered by the cognac barrel, some spice even. Palate is round and soft, very interesting

Bottle to glass at Cantillon. Pours a pale golden color with a nice white head. Aroma is mildly tart, nice fruit character, big cognac presence. Flavor is mildly sweet, tart, and very smooth. Excellent lingering tartness and cognac in the finish. Very nice.
