Huge thanks to MrKennedy for this long-time want. Shared at tasting, reviewed from notes.

Dirty pear with a scant but persistent white head that subsides to a resilient collar.

Classic gueuze tart citrus, showing orange, grapefruit and apricot with lifted woody notes and subtle nuttiness from the Cognac.

Barrel comes through much more. Still a lively acidity with ample green apple and capsicum notes, but the buttery, oaky, vinous barrel influence gains ascendancy. By the end it's geting aggressively woody.

Medium bodies with nice texture from the barrel influence. Very restrained carbonation. Finishes dry, but again the barrel prevents it from being rippingly tart.

Cleverly done and deceptively complex. While the Coganc influence causes a diminution of the gueuze character, the subtle interplay between the two is quite intriguing.

Bottle courtesy cparles, shared at Collected Works tasting. Incredible aroma, just everything you want gueuze to be. Very fruity with prominent vinous and lemon notes, with a significant horsey funk. Not quite as cobwebby/basementy as some gueuzes but I like this better. Flavor is similar, unripe wine grapes, lemon, lime pulp, straw and wet wood, cognac influence really brightens the beer. Just lovely.

Massive props to Owen

Gold yellow, head recedes rapidly.

Nose is cognac and capsicum. Aged blue cheese.

Same with taste. Nice drying alcohol finish with marginally bitter cognac presence. Lots of barrel and vinous character.

Unique and highly differentiated from their standard range.

Batch 2

A. Golden hue, little head, what is there quickly dissipates.

S. The typical gueuze smell, with sweeter notes of the cognac at the end.

T. Very smooth, not bitter for this style. It opens up with tartness, but has a very clean/smooth finish, with lasting wisps of cognac and a slight bitterness.

M. Not at all what I was expecting. Not as sour,and easier drinking then I was expecting.

O. This is my first 'rarer' Cantillon, and it lived up to what I was expecting.
