Add Distribution Data
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.

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.

Hoprider (340) - DENMARK - APR 14, 2015
Clear Golden pour with a rather dense head. Head is lasting. Nose has whitewine, lemon, candy barley. Taste: The barrels has big influense on the taste and the abv is more present in the beer than usual for cantillon. Mix between riesling and gueuze. Very complex with a nice aftertaste.
