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.

eduardovl (1302) - SWITZERLAND - APR 1, 2015
750ml corked and tapped bottle served in a tulip glass. Review #1000! Special occasion -> Special Beer! Bottled in 2012. A: Pours a clear golden yellow color in the beginning (end is very cloudy) forming a small thin bubbled white head that dissipates quickly leaving only very few lacings in the glass. S: Delicious Lambic nose. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, vinegar, fruits, wood and light flowery hops. Notes of leather. Some metallic notes too. White grapes, apples and apricot... Cognac... T: Slightly sweet upfront: Notes of sweet pale malts and acid fruits. Strong notes of white grapes, apricot and wood. Apple vinegar. Quite smooth and light sour for a Cantillon Gueuze. Light hops bitterness. Notes of leather with same metallic notes in the very end. The only negative point is that the taste is not very persistent. M: Medium body. Low carbonation. Fruity, sour and woody aftertaste. O: Absolutely drinkable. Just another Cantillon masterpiece.

King_Alex_II (1095) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Yellowish color. The smell is old and cheesy. The taste is strongly sour with a less sour aftertaste and some fruity aromas. Its also a bit more subtile in the aftertaste as well.

SinH4 (2306) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2015 At the brewery. Hazy orange color with hardly any head. Funk, but very different from your usual Gueuze: Some freshness, more cheese, wood, even a bit caramel. Pineapples, damn! Max says its moee like Fisalis. Taste is lemony and pineapples, and surprisingly, theres a bit of caramel in there. Finish is dry and even a bit taninic. Even a bit of tobacco lingering on the palate. Low carbonation. Great, as usual from Cantillon! EDIT: after having had this another time and comparing it with my other Cantillon ratings, it cannot be that this one is so low in there. Rearranged the ratings a bit.
