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.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 6, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2009 Hazy golden/light amber with a thin white head. Strong toasted wood citrusy barnyard aromas with a whiff of brandy. Light carbonation. Tart lemon and earthy barnyard flavors with a prominent boozy, lighty sweet brandy barrel taste. The gueze and booze don’t mix well in this brew. Thanks to Brad for this bottle.

BeerBiker (1415) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2009
Had this wonderful brew during the Champion League final Barcelona-Man.United with some other beers and it lasted two days. I must admit that for the first time in my beerlife a beer was okay, or just another, the next day. Ok, the carbonation was almost disappeared, but much of its flavor still existed. Fantasic notes of citric, lemon, grape, sourness and great carbonation. Very wellbalanced and with a great, great finish of sharp dryness.

Pours a golden orange with a small head. Smells of green apple peel and vinegar Taste is crisp, lots of green apple, tart, not too sour at all, vinegarry, dry, not too heavy on brett, but has some nice brett notes on the end.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 31, 2009
750ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazed medium golden color, small fizzing off white head, good carbonation throughout. Great nose of tart citrus fruits as well as light vinegar and some tart Chardonnay grapes. Picked up light oak in the flavor along with fresh citric acidity and a crisp funky Belgian finish. Another great one from Cantillon.

madvike (3237) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle - Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is funky and sour. It’s musty, with lemon and wood. Taste is ridiculously complex. There’s a little wheat up front, the middle is sweet, then transitions into a really tart citrus, like an unripe orange. The finish hits with a bunch of wood, then sour grapefruit. I give this a lot of credit for the flavor roller coaster you get put on--it’s pretty ridiculous. It’s just okay in the mouth--smooth and medium-light bodied, with a nice dry finish. Is it worth $26 a bottle? I have no idea. But I do know I scooped it up when I saw it on the shelf at Riley’s. What a nice find!

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2009
750ml. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a pretty tiny head. Aroma shows different characteristics than the normal Gueuze. It’s hard to describe but it’s more herbal. More like a garden than a barnyard. Funkiness is relatively low though acetic acid is high. Very vinnegary. Flavor is kinda watery, high tartness, more acetic acid. Dry. This was kind of a letdown. I love this brewery but this is a pretty ordinary example of the style.

finol (3339) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours fizzy at first, than it settles into hazy orange. Hop and cognac tones. Tart and complex (but not my favourite style)

hirigalzkar (3115) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2009
Bottle. L:Hazy golden funk. S: Matured. Sour apple. Small smokeiness. T: Fruity! Sour berries. Orange cest. The aftertaste has more bitterness than your regular geuze, touches of hops and bourbon. Tart. O: Big bodyfor this kind of beer. Really good! The use of the cognac barrels really adds depth and complexity, and also some drinkability!

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - APR 18, 2009
One of the best guezes I have ever had. The chracteristics of the beer type is still there, but the acidic taste blends with sweet and darker nuances from the cognac barrels. Maybe it was just me being happy that day, but I thought this beer to be more than splendid.
