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.

Aroma of blackcurrants, bilberries, raisins, light barnyard. Taste is blackcurrant up front, with a earthy bilberry pie kind of thing mixed up with cantillon funk. Pretty nice.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Entering Ølbutikken july 25th 2015, just a week after the 2015 release of Blåbær, we had a tiny hope the beer was still availible. Past the table,heading for the fridge to the right, it stood there alone on the shelf. One single 750ml bottle of Blåbær. Yes! So, does it live up to the hype, or is it just a really nice lambiek with bleberries added? Deep ruby with a tiny pink head it looks beautiful in the glass. Strong sour aroma with a heavy blueberry presence. I’ve had lots of blueberry beers, brewing it myself too, and one thing common for all of them is that the blueberry aroma and taste is hard to capture in full. Not in this one though, here the blueberries shine through and taste actual blueberries, together with the pleasant funky and sour Cantillon taste. I can only can conclude that the hype is justified, this is probably the best berry beer I’ve had ever!

On tap at Himmeriget in Copenhagen. Fruity and tart smell with blueberries. Similar taste. It lacks something in the flavour profile, some depth is missing. Not as good as the hype makes it out to be, there are other Cantillons that are allot better. Still a very nice beer though.
