4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cantillon Blåbær Lambic - 3. edition. Bottle 75 cl. A rather red-cheeked gentleman..Barbarossa. Pours a red moisty deep red with a fine and neat white head. The nose is without swing but is rather light with sweet blueberries. The taste is mild and not very sour (as Cantillons normally is) Its round and mild with fine citrusnotes together with liquorice-root, wood, smoke and freshpicked berries - Very complex. Nice poky palate.

Bottle, sampled at RBSG 08, with thanks to ironchefscott. Pours a pinkish-red with a small white head. Huge sweet, ripe, blueberry aroma with sour notes. Taste is more sour / tart blueberry. Lingering sour blueberry flavors. Delicious and very refreshing, could easily drink a lot of this one.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep red-purple in colour with a long lasting thin pink coloured head, excellent lacing. The aroma is very sour, quite tart, the blueberries work very well, light sweetness comes and goes, lightly acidic. The flavour is sharp, acidic and dry, good blueberry sweetness, grape skins, excellent Cantillon funk. Sweet, tart and dry mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes long, dry, tart and juicy.
Wow, fantastic stuff. Unbelievable aroma thats right up there with Soleil de Minuit and Tyrnilambic. I see this aging very, very well as the blueberry flavour is quite strong. Nice job Jeppe, you have made lambic history.
750ml bottle obtained in a trade with footbalm, thanks Eric.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
RBSG 2008. Thanks to Jason for this sample. Glowing red body covered by a smooth pink head. Sour and acidic as expected, tart blueberry nose. Very dry throughout with a soft blueberry flavor infused throughout. One of the best Cantillons+fruit i’ve had, blueberry seems to work nicely, more mellow and doesn’t seem to accentuate the acidity as much.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to Papsoe for sending and pepsican for sharing! 750ml bottle. Batch 2, vintage 2007. Poured a murky purple-orange color with a pinkish head. Lots of yeasty bread dough in the aroma accopanied by light blueberry and an occasional whiff of formaldehyde. Odd, but true. Medium bodied with moderate to high acidity. Again, very pleasant yeasty/dought flavor with an intensely acidic, mouthwatering unripe blueberry accent. I also got some funk and a hint of sulfur. A wild ride, literally and figuratively.

Papsoe, seriously thank you for this. Hazy red pour with a reddish white head. Tart blueberry and oak aroma. Flavor is very similar, mildly dusty and good god is that sour. Very tart finish with just a touch of sweetness that..."balances(?)" it out. This was batch 2 from 2007.
