Style: Gueuze

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
For our 20th anniversary we asked Jean Van Roy at Cantillon to make a special blend for us. This time we wanted something spectacular without fruit. Something hat would age beautifully in our cellar and that we can enjoy in 20 years from now. This is a blend made of 75% 30-month old Iris and 25% 44-month old Grand Cru Bruocsella styled lambic. We hop that this beer will continue to develop and mature over the years to symbolize the progression of Akkurat and our friendship with the beautiful Cantillon brewery.

2015 bottle.

Still. Golden orange color.

It definitely reminds me of iris and grand cru. Still, herbal, lots of floral notes, and earthy. Light mineral notes with a nice funk and cobweb flavor. Oak. Very small amounts of lemon citrus. Basement musk to round things out.

Light bodied. Flat. Ends fairly clean.

A really fun beer to try. Two of my favorites combined as one. This would age nicely.
