Cantillon Gueuze 100% organic Lambic 2019/2020
The Gueuze from probably the most authentic Lambic brewery, ever: Brasserie Cantillon. It is a blend of one, two and three year old Lambic that is refermented in the bottle. While the mature 3-year-old Lambic adds the funky wild aromas to the beer, the "young" one-year-old Lambic provides the necessary proper freshness and sugar for the refermentation in the bottle. From the blended Lambic, the carbonated gueuze can thus be created. The pleasantly fresh acidity and fruitiness blends perfectly with the tart notes of the wild yeast and the wood barrel. This beer also matures wonderfully in the bottle, so that a longer storage at home can be useful.

Cantillon is certainly one of the most sought-after Belgian breweries among Lambic lovers. The brewery was founded in 1900 and today is managed by Jean-Pierre van Roy. On the historic brewing plant only spontaneously fermented beers are produced, which are stored and fermented for several years in wooden barrels. Spontaneously fermented beers can only be brewed in winter, so Cantillon can only be produced in winter. This type of brewing, the most important ingredient of which are the wild yeasts from the air, was already almost extinct worldwide and has survived in Belgium at a few breweries. Cantillon is very difficult to obtain due to the high demand, the time-consuming production and the limited capacity.
