[ My Rating #4000 ].. After drinking so many bottles of this very very nice beer I manage also to make a rating of it ..
Light unclear medium to dark red color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, light red head. Aroma is blueberries - berry sour - tart, wood, horse blanket - barnyard, acdic. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and moderate acidic with a long duration, and a dry finish. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft - lively. It is awesome .. very very nice and complex and again easy to drink and very refreshing... ;o)) (050708)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Pre GBBF shindig at Chris_o’s. Not sure what happened to my rating of this one, I’m sure I put it on before. Anyway, as I’ve said many times before, I am not Cantillon’s biggest fan as I don’t always find their beers very drinkable due to the higher acidity than in some of the other lambics. However, some of them are good and I have Jeppe and he is a great guy, so it’s great that he got the chance to brew something there. For me the overriding aroma was very farmyardy, especially smelling it straight from the bottle. The fruit then comes through in the glass. But for me the acidity is too overpowering for my palate. Decent fruit though.

37.5 cl bottle, 2007 Vintage, via papsoe. This is one of those rare corked beers that did all the work for me opening it. As soon as I popped the crown the cork began to magicly slowly rise as if it wanted to be set free. No issues with foaming though. Pours a beautiful shade of purple-pink with a small fizzy pink head that retained as a thin covering and a small ring. Wow, the nose is just great, sour funky blueberries with lots of musty and woody notes. A little bit of stinky cheese and yogurt like funkiness. Bracingly tart and acidic, it’s hard believe that the 2005 vintage can get much more tart. There’s an extremely authentic blueberry flavor that takes center stage even with all of the classic Cantillon house character. The finish is just bone dry with lots of musty gueuze like notes of damp cellar and wood. Though the blueberries are quite sour, there’s just a little bit of sweetness up front that makes me think of chocolate covered blueberries. Medium bodied and super dry with perfect pinpoint soft carbonation and a lingering acetic finish. Overall, this beer was just excellent, the fruit was just so vibrant and fresh tasting. Very interested to try the 2005 now, but I couldn’t justify drinking 2 bottles of this beer on the same night. Interestingly I had the Upland Blueberry just last night and this thing blew it away by a mile.

37,5 cl bottle - tasting with yngwie, gunnfryd and Beer_2000. Vintage 2007. Hazy brown/reddish color. Moderate, disappering white head. Aroma is lovely fruity, with sourness and oak. Flavor is sour fruit and hints of blueberry, wood, hints of smoke - «old» taste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 Bottle, 37.5cl corked, 2007 vintage (batch 2). It pours an unclear, reddish body, like a blueberry juice, with pinkish-whiteish-reddish small head. There’s a lovely whiff of blueberry when pouring it, but it disappeares quickly. Then there’s the usual barnyard, horseblanket and citrus. Lovely. The flavor follows the same path of course, but the berries are more evident in th flavor. It’s really palate-cleansing, not thick and oily. Pleasant finish where the blueberries is really evident and nice. Like eating berries from the bush and having a slice of lemon to go. A beauty. Rating: 8-4-8-3-17-4. 080626
Bottle, 75cl corked, 2005 vintage (batch 1). A hazy, amber beer topped by a dense, off-white head. Slightly rubbery blueberry aroma, subtle and not very funky. The flavor has some vinegar and funk, with lemon and a nice blueberry touch. Medium body, dry. Vinegar and lemon in the finish, along with some blueberry. A very easy drinkable beer, rather lovely. 100827

An old rating i finally got to entering. Poured a purple red, bluish color. With a small head. Aroma was insanely funky and horsey. Not really getting that much blueberry in the aroma or taste but it was lightly noticable. Was really tastey but not overly sour.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From my backlog. Everyone was quite excited to try this offering from Cantillon at the 2007 Milwaukee YeHa. 2005 bottle. Intense aroma on this one, wow! Burnt my nosehairs a bit with the sour intensity wafting up from the glass. After you get past that initial sour aroma, a good amount of dried blueberries makes its presence known. Soon after, a good amount of horsehair and funk jumps up. Flavour is sharp and intense. Highly acidic with the blueberries making their presence known once again on the backend of the finish. Bone-dry aftertaste help to complete this complex and intense experience.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 Bottle vintage 2005 shared at toncatcher’s. I rated this one once already, but my rating disappeared. Strange... Pours a hazy orange with no head. Some sourness and quite bitter. Citric aromas with aromas of very sour berries... Blueberries and sour cherries. Also aromas of vinegar. Long sour finish.

Bottle from MReusch huge thanks for this brew. Very moist cork, and mild rust on the cap. Foggy light purple color, with a thin cream violet color. Aroma is light blueberry, horseblanket, sour. Taste is a tart blueberry with horseblanket, sour with lemon. Interesting brew
