Another great from Brussels’ own, the great Brasserie Cantillon. This one uses lambic aged for 2 years in Cognac barrels. It is a collaboration between Cantillon and Cognac maker Grosperrin.
Cantillon 50 N 4 E
It’s a superb beer, with a noticeable but not overdone character added by the cognac, and 7% abv. I picked this bottle up at Cantillon in early November, and it was bottled 27 February 2012. So obviously, this one isn’t made too often, so drink it if you see it! (Or, age it for at least 20 years and get back to me when ready to drink. )
The back label.
Enough talk. Let’s open it up!
Just about ready….
The obligatory disembodied hands with bottle photo.
Truly an excellent beer. Thanks, Jean Van Roy!

Neck close up. Might as well cover all the bases.
