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.

Editor’s Note: Cuvée Saint-Gilloise is dry-hopped with Hallertau and is merged with this listing.

RBSG 2008. Pours gold with a quick glimpse of a white head that vacates quickly. Dry and acidic with a long sour finish. Earthy and funky finish, soft lemony hop note to the finish.

bottle 375 ml 10€ at Pikkulintu Helsinki 150808 golden yellow fizzy pleasant easy sourness , fruity, gentle hops. Some day I am looking more astringent Cantillon but maybe this bottle was matured for a while. Refreshing hot summer day.

Pours light golden color with smallish carbonated head. Aroma of sour goodness with some funk/cellar notes. Flavor is nice and dry, tart almost metallic. Good offering from cantillon but not my favorite of theirs. Could use a little more age perhaps to round out the flavors.
