COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A new brew concocted by Jean Van Roy to celebrate the 2003-2004 Division III title for the local Union St. Gilles football team and its upgrade to Division II.

Cuvee des Champions is not a traditional ’gueuze,’ in that it is made from only two year-old 2001 lambic, not from a blend of older and younger lambics. It is also dry-hopped in the cask for three weeks with fresh Styrian Goldings hops. Re-fermentation in the bottle is achieved with the addition of a small amount of candi sugar.

ClubGonzo (3520) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle from bieresgourmet.be webshop. Pours a clear deep golden body with a large foamy white head and a lot of visible bubbles in the glass. Nose is mild citric acid tones, herbs, wet grass, hay and hints of horseblanket and grape peel. Taste is dry horseblanket tones, bitter herbs, lemon peel and hints of grape peel and gooseberries. Dry, light body, high carbonation. Quite nice "geuze" with a bitter touch, but not as complex or intriguing as many other Cantillon creations.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2013
On tap at Churchkey. Light yellow pour. Woodsy and herbal on the nose, possibly from the dry hops? Flavor is a tart punch in the mouth. Hugely tart gives way to soft hop bitterness and some more of the earthy woodsy hop character. This thing is a beast.
