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.

ciocanelu (2455) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 2, 2016
Slightly hazy golden color, a bit of off-white foam. Aroma is sweet with some rum and cognac notes, some vinegar acidity, quite complex. Taste starts with dark fruits, sweet spirits, slight burnt sugar, dusty cellar, slight bitterness on the finish. Medium to light bodied with light carbonation. Really complex lambic, one of the most interesting I ever had.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2016 Tasted at Zwanze day 2016. Cloudy yellow pour. Aroma is kind of boozy but taste is smooth, really amazing gueze. Really happy to try this one!

ctipping (1910) - Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2016
750 mL bottle. Batch 2. Originally reviewed 9/15/2013. Slightly hazy yellow. No head. Not completely lifeless, but not a lot going on. Fruity sweet aroma. Some oak and lactic lemony acids. Wheat and some grassiness. Taste is sour, but the oaky vanilla flavor moderates it. Very oaky, really. Some fruitiness I can’t put my finger on. I guess that’s the cognac barrel, but I’m no expert on cognac. Grainy in the finish. Good sourness and well balanced by the liquor, oak, and vanilla. The barrel adds complexity, even if I can’t really distinguish it.

Maracuja05 (1206) - Mainz, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
05-05-16 // sample at Cantillon Quintessence 2015. Paired with comté cheese. Alcoholic notes from the cognac barrels. Low carbonation. Dry sour. 2015 vintage, needs some years to rest to develop complexity.

simont1 (614) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2016
Grass, herbal, light butterscotch, vanilla, barnyard, leather, earthy and floral. Very nice, soft and subtle lambic with soft carbonation. Taste of barnyard, quenching dry, grape, apple cider, with a leathery sock finish.

phaleslu (10098) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2016
750 ml bottle at Keir’s 50th tasting - thanks again, everybody! Pours a clear gold with a thin white ring for a head. Notes of oak, cognac, vanilla, grapes, lemon zest, saltines, nuts, and faint minerals. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, sour, coating, tannic, smooth mouthfeel. Unusual for Cantillon. Certainly not one of my favorites of theirs, but very interesting to try.

@Akkurat x2. First time I had this along with Arman4 series, the second time with Zenne. Unfortunately Zenne made the experience less amazing :p Incredibly refined balance and great complex taste with some vineous notes and lots of character from the barrels. Yes, the cognac really comes through and I love it!
