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.

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 (3183) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2016 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 at Zwanze 15 and comparing it with my other Cantillon ratings, it cannot be that this one is so low in there. Rearranged the ratings a bit. 9-3-9-4-18

Bottle shared at Zwanze 16. Lots of barrel, a bit dusty, pineapples, starfruit. Taste is pineapples, starfruit, barrel. An amazing beer, probably the best bottle of this Ive had. 9-4-9-4-18

aleigator (809) - GERMANY - FEB 19, 2015
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.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2015
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.
