Batch 3 705mL bottle. Served at Cafe Rose Red in Brugge, Belgium.

Hazy amber body. White head sticks around to leave later of foam.

Aromas - citrus tangerine , yeasty, spices, barrel, hay, lightly sweet.

Taste - sour citrus, drying rindyness, oranges, muted hops, the follow through is lightly sweet cognac, bright citrus, rye, grapes, sour apple. Finishes dry and crisp. Medium body.

Overall a delight - wish I got more cognac! This was a treat fresh.

Shared by Nimrod. Like an exceptional wine, crisp and incredibly drinkable. Smooth and perfect tartness.

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.

Golden hued and delicate, much like a typical gueuze. The barrels don't impart much color here. Smell is funky with a bit of additional molasses and a touch of smoke. Flavor is like a mellowed out gueuze, with a nice sweetness accompanying the classic grassy and green apple notes of a Cantillon. The funk is somewhat minimized here. Mouthfeel is nice but unremarkable. Definitely a treat to try, and quite different from other Cantillon's I've had, but probably doesn't justify seeking out a bottle on my own accord. A great experience to try once!
