Sample from 375 ml bottle at Brewskival, thanks a lot! Slightly hazy bluish reddish with pinkish head. Aroma has light blueberry, funky notes, lactic, slight acetic, fruit, lemon and more funk. Taste is funky and sour, bretty notes with lactic and acetic, blueberries, red berries, citrus and slight yeast. Good stuff but a bit overrated, there are way better cantillons

2015 vintage. Deep blueberry color with a single finger head. Aroma is light and tart with hints of musty fruit. Dry finish with hints of blueberry. Nice carbonation, not too biting. Slight grain taste with lingering fruit notes. Hints of sourness, but nothing overwhelming. Very balanced. The fruit is just amazing in this. I’d like to try it fresh one day. Medium bodied.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A 375ml bottle at Himmergiet of the 2015 Vintage. Poured into a mini wine glass. It poured a slightly hazy ruby red dark purple colour with a one finger pinkish purple head that had good retention and sparse lacing. Aromas of blueberry, tart, funk, some acidity and lemon. Tastes of blueberry, sour, tart and light funk. Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Overall, wow, this was just special. One of the best Cantillon offerings I’ve tried along with the Lou Pepe Framboise. It’s just too bad I missed the 2016 release in Copenhagen by two days as I would have loved to open another bottle.

2014 vintage at Himmeriget, Copenhagen. Aroma is tart and sour red fruits, bretty funk, barnyard, subtle blueberries, some wood. Flavour is quite tart and medium to heavy sour. Body is medium. Complex yet easily drinkable, lots of nice funky barnyard notes besides the tart and sour berries. Maybe not the ultimate Cantillon, but quite lovely.

375 ml bottle, enjoyed at Himmeriget, Cph. 2016 "vintage". 160 DKK for this one. Hurts in a personal place... Deep, dark red colour with a thin, pinkish head. Very good looking. Fruity aroma with blueberries, wheat malts, lemons, barnyard, a sour fruitiness, vanilla. Taste is sour. Medium body with a slick texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes lasting sour with blueberries, wheat malts and barnyard. Very enjoyable, but given the hefty price tag there’s better Lambieks out there. Excellent experience, trough
