750ml Batch 8. It pours with a nice purple hue and a very nice purpleish head. SMell is funky with barnyard, spice, bluberry skin, lemon, sour, wood. Flavor is mild and subdued. Tart flavor, medium to low sourness, medium funk. Nicely balanced. VEry nice beer.

Amazingly complex palate. Savor each sip to get the full experience. Good bit of tart, but overall crisp finish.

Obviously I am not a sour guy, no matter how hard I try. This is dry, funky and has a ton of blueberries, but doesn"t quite tickle my palate the right way. Still its a great beer, but I preferred the mellower, more austere Mamouche to this. Couldn’t taste the rareness on this one.

Rating 1000 at the RB Japan Gathering. Thanks to Sune! I had been wanting to drink this for a long time. Maybe got a bit over excited and didn’t write much.
’Aroma lovely, fruity, lovely. Pretty sour finish. Beautiful.’
Basically the usual Cantillon classiness and sourness with a different fruit which I also happen to like. Got to be a winner. Plus you could taste the rareness...

Hazy purple color. Blueberries, leather, funk and barnhouse. Uber sour with blueberries. Like a sour blueberry milkshake.

02-MAR-2013, 2010 vintage 0,375 l bottle, @home, from Ølbutikken.
Opened with Morten to celebrate a huge tax refund. I have been holding on to this bottle since release. How will it present itself?
Pours slightly hazy red with lasting, lacing pink head.
Aroma is blueberry, tart, gun powder - lactic, and funk.
Taste the same. Mostly just pure blueberry juice.
Quite full body, soft but still lively carbonation with a long tart and blueberry finish.
My first perfect beer, my first perfect 5. Must seek out again:-)
The perfect 5 may be influenced by the hype around the brew and/or the tax refund, but this IS the best beer I have had.

2007 vintage (not sure if it was batch 2 or 3) shared thanks to mlunger12 at RBWG! Pours a hazy reddish purple from the bottle with thin ring of white lacy head. Aroma of funky farmhouse yeast and tart fruit; taste follows, bittery tart awesomeness. Wow, this was pretty awesome.
