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.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are brett, wood, leather, white wine, malt and hops. Nice

Yellowish color. The smell is old and cheesy. The taste is strongly sour with a less sour aftertaste and some fruity aromas. It’s also a bit more subtile in the aftertaste as well.

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 it’s moee like Fisalis. Taste is lemony and pineapples, and surprisingly, there’s 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.

Pours a slightly cloudy, almost murky rich yellow color, with no head at all. The aromas reveal lots of warm oak, accompanied by leather, a decent tartness and white lemon zest. Tastes of tart funk, matured white grape skin, musty, old lime and a dry touch of oaken Cognac. While the beer has a distinct, slightly fruity wooden character, its typical sourness is a bit subdued. The wooden aspect contains a slight sweetness of fermented apples, leading to a medium body with low carbonation.

Bottle at the brewery: Golden, slightly hazy. Rich geuziness (made that word up) with just a hint of cognac. Very vinous (white) and fruity (grapes, pears). Insanely pleasant amount of sourness.

andrew_drinks (234) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle at Cantillon, 2012 bottling. Very pale yellow, small white head. Crisp and funky lemon rind aroma mixed with faint sweet cognac. Medium carbonation. Medium to high sourness. Caramelised citrus rind, like a lemon marmalade but with the sourness ramped up. Cognac most manifests as sweet counterpoint to the sourness and then a booze kicker in the finish.

suprchunk (2949) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Amber-ish, just a little light. Big white head that fades quickly and leaves some lacing behind. Big nose of funk and a slight bit of sweet cognac. Not overpowering though, or I would pass on it. Taste is a typical fruity Cantillon with funk and bright citrus. Finish tart and refreshing.

Dark amber in appearance. The cognac influence is very apparent amongst the brett funk - a slight sweet caramel tone develops in the beer. Tart but very fine caramel/cognac tones on the palate. Slight sweetness appears upon warming up.

AbouAli (195) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Couleur jaune d’apparence moine pétillante qu’une gueuze Cantilon. Moins d’acidité et une touche légère de coganc, de vieillissement en fût. Surtout présent en rétro olfaction mais qui reste bien présent et remplis bien la bouche. Plus elle se réchauffe plus le côté cognac se révèle et s’impose. Très équilibrée.
