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.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 75cl bottle at the brewery. Golden orange colour. No head. Its an intense version of lambic bio. Much stronger in flavor and aroma. Simple but impressive.

SlackerMads (3405) - DENMARK - JUL 31, 2017
Bottle at Cantillon with sunevdj (the both of them). Bottled in december 2015. Hazy golden with a medium sized good lacing white head. Soft and fluffy carbonation with mild sweetness and medium sourness. The barrels clearly show in the flavour with notes of sherry and port. Also some lemon, wood and barnyard. Mild cheese and white grapes. Funky finish with mild lemony sourness. Good.

The_Osprey (8197) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2017
Cotteridge Convention III – May 2017 - Cork and cage bottle shared at Cotts. Big thanks to Dave for this one. As ’Cantillon 50°N-4°E’. Pours a hazy orange with a small foamy off-white head. Aroma is peachy, lemon, light metallics. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is again peachy, lime and lemon sherbet, a little grassy, some light drying cognac vibes. Lovely. (8-4-8-4-17=4.1)

badgerben (5213) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Copper color with a thin head. Hints of oak and vanilla in the aroma. Light tartness. Dry as all hell. Woodsy. Dry cognac notes. Very vegetal hops. Barn funky. Sublime.

Clownoisseur (485) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Bottle at Cantillon, split 3 ways with the wife and Mike (bytemesis), cheers! Pours a hazy copper color, small off-white head that leaves a ring of lace. Aroma is full of signature Cantillon funk, oak, hay, horse blanket, light leather notes, light citrus rind and an underlying floral note. Taste is a balance of cognac, Cantillon funk, light citrus, light floral, light hay....mild acidic, mild bitter. Great balance. Finishes medium dry with a sweet bread note, bitter brett/hops, deep funk, horse blanket and oak. Outstanding!

BlackHaddock (7404) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Cotteridge tasting #3 on 20th May 2017. Cheers Dave (WingmanWillis) for this offering. Hazy golden pour, thin head, wispy. Best Gueuze I’ve had so far, not too sharp or sour, the Gognac barrels calming down the Lambic nicely for me and my palate. Still tart and leaning towards citrusy in nature, but mellow compared to most in this style.

SarkyNorthener (4673) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle shared @CWC III, thanks to Wingmanwillis, cheers Dave. Hazy golden amber beer with small head. Aroma is cheese, funky and lemon. Taste is lemon, citrus, barnyard, cheese and sour. Excellent.
