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.

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Pours pale yellow with a large white head. Nose is boozy, wood, vinegar, sour apples, leather, barnyard funkery. Taste is sweet, with an enourmouse wave of tart that peaks several times throughout the taste ultimately dominating the aftertaste. Amazing complexity. Mouthfeel is soft, creamy yet fizzy. The body is medium to heavy and has a very long finish. Amazing.

The_Osprey (8010) - 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 (5188) - 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 (482) - 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 (7356) - 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.

NightHawk91 (56) - POLAND - MAY 26, 2017
2015. Pite w browarze w maju 2017. Gładziutki, czysty, zbalansowany, grzeczny/nieprzegięty lambik. Kwaśność przeciętna ku niskiej. Pełny. Beczka zaznaczona. Perfekcyjne, średnie wysycenie. Delikatne (biało)winno-dębowa cierpkość. Dosłownie akcencik octu. Finisz wytrawny, nieco goryczkowy. Totalnie w moim stylu, genialne gueuze.
