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.

ekstedt (5838) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2008
Bottle (75 cl) from Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. Shady deep golden, tiny head. Cidery aroma with green and yellow apples, grapefruit, and some other soft tropical fruits (perhaps from the cognac), and finally some wood. A bit too sour for my liking, as usual with Cantillion.

radiomgb (2465) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2008
Murky golden yellow in colour with a thin quickly dissipating white coloured head, light lacing. The aroma has some light barnyard, leather with a bit of sweetness at times, some wood. The flavour had some apples, was sour and acidic but all the while a bit mild for a Cantillon, some tropical fruits, lightly sweet. MIld mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. A toned down finishes with a mild tartness.

Tame by Cantillon standers, the barrel aging might have had something to do with this. A very easy drinking Gueuze but I still prefer my Cantillons with a bit more oomph.

750ml bottle obtained in a trade with miketd, thanks Mike.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - AUG 26, 2008
Golden appearance with no head. Woody, funky, with a really slight cognac feature. I found it a bit harsh swallowing, not my best Cantillon bottle.

bb (7305) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle. Amber beer with an off-white head. Tart aroma with some summer fruit and some brandy/cognac showing through. Tart flavor with some oak, light brandy/cognac, and light lemon. Medium body. Very complex. Tartness lingers. Doesn’t seem as sour as other Cantillons.

TBone (13697) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2008
Bottled 75 cl, bottling 30.3.2007
Mainly clear orange-yellow color, no head. Tropical fruits/apricot/peach and light tartness in the nose - not really cognac found here, but clearly unusual aroma for Cantillon gueuze. At first mouthfeel feels quite flat, but later there is some fizzyness. Not as tart as many Cantillons but very fruity and more complex than ordinary geuze: apricot, leather and some tropical fruits. Also some odd notes, propably from oak. Lingering fruity sourness in the aftertaste. Very unique and interesting, although not my favourite of Cantillons. I couldn’t spot any obvious cognac-flavors.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2009 Bottle shared by miketd. Orange pour with a quickly fading fizzy white head. Aroma of fresh fruits, peaches, light wood and pale malt. Even flavors of sour, peach, vinous fruits, wood, light yeast and barnyard. Light body, sour, with a sour dry finish. Fantastic brew!

pineypower (2682) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Much thanks to Miver for this bottle. Pours out an interesting golden/orange/yellow color with a thin bubbly head. Aroma is sour and vinous with some earthy notes. Taste is very complex, nice sourness with some grape, yeast and slight earthiness with a fruity balance in the background. Very good
