Cantillon Gueuze 2013 Belgian Flag
Brewery Note by Master-Brewer Jean Van Roy :
Yellow for the background, black for the silhouette and red for the letters, those were the colors of the original logo of the Cantillon brewery.
These colors were not chosen haphazardly. The designer who created the logo in the beginning of the 20th century simply used the colors of the Belgian flag.
2013 has been a marvelous year for the Belgian artists and sportsmen. Our national colors have been put in the spotlight on many occasions.
Brasserie Cantillon wanted to share this enthusiasm in its own way, by creating a modern version of its Gueuze label. Our current designer has made a new label by putting together the logo and the Belgian flag. This label will only be used for a short time until the stock is exhausted.
Belgiuminabox has added the Cantillon Gueuze Belgian Flag to the shop, available in 37.5 cl & 75 cl bottles :
Brasserie Cantillon released the Cantillon Lou Pepe Gueuze bottled in 2010
Master-Brewer Jean Van Roy :
The Lou Pepe Gueuze is made with 2 year-old-lambic beer with a mellow taste, often coming from barrels in whichonly wine has been kept before.
The Cantillon lambics which are used to make the Lou Pepe are brewed in the same season.
Belgiuminabox is glad to add the Cantillon Lou Pepe Gueuze to the shop :

The Merlot and Cabarnet-Franc grapes are soaked in Bordeaux barrels containing two/three year old Cantillon lambic.
The beer is not blended before the bottling.
The foam is caused by the addition of a liquor which starts the fermentation.

Brasserie Cantillon Cuvée Vigneronne 2013, a druiven-lambic (grape-lambic) is made from blending 2-year-old 2011 Cantillon lambic with Italian Muscat grapes.

Brasserie Cantillon released it’s “2014 Cuvée Saint-Gilloise”.
Cantillon Cuvée Saint-Gilloise is not a traditional ‘gueuze,’ in that it is made from un-blended two year-old lambic (spontaneously fermented), not from a blend of older and younger lambics.
It is dry-hopped in the cask for 3 weeks with Bavarian Hallertau hops.
Re-fermentation in the bottle is achieved with the addition of a small amount of candi sugar.
The Cantillon Saint-Gilloise 2014 is available @ Belgiuminabox :
