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.

750ml bottle thanks to jeppe for sending this one over the pond....pours a semi-transparent orangey-brown with a thin white soapy head that diminishes after a few minutes.....aroma was nice. a not too overbearing sour funkiness with some citric acid tart. there might be subtle cognac notes but i cant truly pinpoint them....flavor was really smooth with the typical cantillon character. the cognac smoothens things out nicely with even a mild sweetness in the finish, allowing it to just peak through. a very nice balance all around. mouthfeel was still pretty sprite and it goes down well.

SHIG (3536) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Bottle: Poured a murky orange with a white thin head. The aroma was funky with a slight cognac smell. The taste was sour but not overwhelming with a thangness and cognac.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Bottle, vintage 2005, 3 years old at Yeast fest 08. Pours a cloudy light yellow orange body. Aroma is cognac and sour funkiness. Flavor is very buttery, i really like it. A light easy to drink cognac comes into play with a sour ending and some acidity present. Ill definately open this again.

750ml bottle; Cork dated 2007. This poured hazy yellowish gold in color with a quickly diminishing white fizzy head. The aroma is typical of most Cantillons. Sour, barnyard, funk. This one had some citric in the aroma as well. The taste was a little more subdued compared to other Cantillons which punch you in the jaw. There were solid notes, of lemon citrus. I picked up a bit more oak which made this Cantillon drier in the finish. This was very nice.

Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Flavor of cognac followed by sourness. Very interesting. Not sure if Im a fan or not, will have to revisit this one.

The body was hazy gold with a thin white head. The aroma was sour lemons with some floral character. There was also some hints of sweat and sweet apples. The taste was fairly tart with some flowers and bread crust. The finish was very dry. A nice Cantillon, but nothign about this one really stood out to me.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2009 (Bottle at VBPF08 on 2008-05-18 and at home on 2009-02-22) Golden colour. Hazy. Small white head that disappeared quickly. Sour and a bit sweet nose with hint of cognac. Acidic palate that is a bit dry. Sour taste. Some tiny hints sweetness and quite strong cognac flavours in aftertaste. Really nice.

Light yellow pour w/ a nice white head dissapates quickly. Acidic aroma w/ hints of damp hay and leather some vinegar maybe definate funk in there. Full bodied and coats fairly well. Crazy thought to have cognac although I thought it didnt really come through. Pretty tart as well.
