Sometimes referred to as Brussels Champagne, this authentic gueuze is brewed by Brasserie-Brouwerij Cantillon in scrupulous adherence to time-honoured tradition. A blend of one-, two- and three-year old Lambics, it is brewed using organic cereals to produce a masterly beer emblematic of Brussels.
Decked in brilliant gold leaning faintly towards orange, it is crowned with a modest white head.
Its class shines through in a symphony of fragrances composed of citrus (lemon puts in a strong solo performance), apricot and apple among other fruit.
Fruity notes of apple and lemon dance on the palate conducted by a delightful sourness. A chorus of flavours and melodic intensity make this beer unforgettable.
In this gueuze one can savour Cantillon's superior know-how perfected over more than a century. Those partial to a fuller body are bound to also enjoy Cantillon Kriek, another classic from the brewery.
