4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(750ml 2014 bottle @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, July 27 2015) Pours a hazy pale gold with a small lingering white head and lace. Aroma has elderflower, cut grass, lemon rind, pickle, yellow plum, barnyard, medicinal herbs, some wood. Flavour is quite delicate and elegant. Lots of cut grass, flowers, very fresh. Some of that fresh pickle character, soft lactic sourness. Finish has a bunch of flowers and fresh vegetation. Light to medium body, soft effervescent carb. The floral characters make this delicate and very pleasant, fresh, the much-maligned pickle is no issue in my opinion. A different fruit lambic but a really enjoyable sipper.

Aroma of strong elderflower, light barnyard and doughy honey notes, incredibly inviting. Taste is lots of elderflower, nice bitterness and a peppery harsh horseradish like tearing as it goes down your throat, bitterness is almost like wood bitterness, this has beer seemingly has more oak character than other Cantillons, and to me is also among the best fruited with Lou Pepe’s.
