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.

75 cL bottle at Bier Circus. Pours almost golden orange, clear and with a little white head. Mild brett aroma, quite fruity and light. Dry. Flavour starts quite citric, light acidic touch and a dominant orange/citrus fruity flavour. Dry, light woody and mellow acidic finish. Continues with a nice lingering orange fruity flavour. Very smooth.

[I tried this one at the open brewing day March 6th 2004, thanks to Jean van Roy and John White] The aroma is fantastic, sour from the wild fermentation yet sweet with notes of lemon and very well rounded. The color is orange and it has no head. The flavor is thin compared to the promising aroma, it is sour with notes of citrus and grapefruit.

joergen (28142) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2008

anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm. Pours a hazy golden color with a very small white head. Fruity and slightly tart woody cognac aroma. Dry woody tart and sour flavor. Dry malty finish with some woody hints.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2008
Bottled. Hazy nut brown/amber colour with not much head at all. Aroma is sour wood, with very sour fruits as well as some slight barrel notes. Also quite barnwardish and earthy notes in the nose. Flavour is sourness from fruits and wood along with some notes od oak barrells. A really pleasant brew.

omhper (25119) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2004
Bottled (from Jacob’s collection). Hazy pale orange. Up front Cantillon acidity mingles with strong cognac aroma. Sweeter than the average Cantillon, yet fresh and acidic. After the initial punch the cognac flavour subdues to a more balanced level. Interesting, and - as alwatys with Cantillon - very, very good.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Slightly hazy, amber golden with a basically absent head. Sour - very sour - Brett aroma. The body is soft and a little watery - and completely flat. Lots of Brett sourness dominating this - and some oaky touches. Not much cognac though. 090507

Hazy gold beer. Sour and lemony but not out of control. The subtlest touch of cognac and oak peeping through. Just another overrated sour beer but at least drinkable.

Travlr (24759) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2008
750 ml bottle. The name refers to the GPS coordinates of the brewery. It was a typical lambic, dry and sour, but the oak added a bitter and slightly smoky flavor that wasn’t really necessary, given the underlying complexity of the lambic itself.
