4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’ve had the pleasure of tasting several bottles ( 75cl & 37.5cl) of this fine fruit Lambik; vintage 2007 Batch 1 & 2. Pours a light to medium burgundy with slight white head! Has a pleasant tart funky barnyard aroma with a touch of blueberry maybe a little cranberry in the background. Gotta love this soft tart blueberry zest; just enough to cause the lips to smack with delight. Much less acidic and sour than some other Cantillon fruit Lambics though. The mouth feel was pleasant with some carbonation along with a perfect balance of Blueberry tartness/acidity. This is definitely one of the best fruit Lambics on the market today. Thanks Jeppe for supplying all those tasty blueberries to create such a great brew.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013 vintage, 750mL. Pours a cloudy bluish red purple. Whitish head but not much. Slight farm-like aroma but not powerful. Taste is sour but with a weird bitter finish. There isn’t much blueberry here at all. Finished quite dry. Disappointing.

This one poured a pinkish yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of light funk, and lemon, really no blueberry
Flavor was similar, no real blueberry, dry bitter lambic. Disappointing

Bottle: The aroma consists of sour cherry, lemon, lighter sweet blueberry, sweet tarts, and funk/must. It pours a pinkish-purple with a small pink head that eventually fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of blueberry and sour cherries. The finish has lemon, funk, citrus, and a hint light cork. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, this is excellent, but there are more accessible Cantillons that are as good or better.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. A huge thanks to ygtbsm94 for sharing this. Pours a slightly translucent soft reddish purple with lasting head of large off white bubbles. Deep red hues on the glass when backlit. A truly beautiful beer. Aroma is sour, tangy dark fruits, with blueberries muted overall in the complexity. Taste is amazing: fresh, sour blueberries with a lip-smacking tartness. Thin to medium body. Truly outstanding. From notes November 7, 2009.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. 2013 vintage. Good funky aroma, light fruity notes, though I couldn’t tell it was blueberry. Big funky notes. Horse blanket. Color was nice - a dirty pinky color. Flavor is over the top funk, a hint of fruit, and more funk. Very overpowering funk. It was good to try once but not worth going through the trouble to obtain again.
