Cuvee Saint-Gilloise by brewery Cantillon is a unique gueuze beer. Two-year-old lambic in which fresh HallertauMittelfrüh hops have been soaked. This gives the beer a very particular sour-bitter flavor.
The name of the beer refers to the local football club ‘Union Saint-Gilloise’, one of Belgium’s oldest football teams, whose stadium is only 2 km away from the brewery. When it was first launched in 2004, the beer was called ‘Cuvee de Champions’ (Cuvee of the Champions), to celebrate the team’s promotion to Belgium’s second division. However, since then the team’s results have gone downwards, and the beers name has been changed to a more general ‘Cuvee Saint-Gilloise’.
