Tap @ Spuyten Duyvil for Zwanze Day 2012. Pours a cloudy golden with mild orange hue. Huge,strong, rocky bleach white head that takes forever to dissipate (tapping had to go into pitchers before pouring into glasses). The aroma was filled with peppery spices and floral notes on top of a lactic sour base. On the palate, the tart sour notes dominate until the finish when clearly floral and earth notes come through. Finishes clean and crisp with a mild pepper zing on the end. Fabulous stuff. Sessionable if you can find enough of it.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Pours a hazy and golden beer with a white head. The aroma is fruit, flowers, some berries, elderflower and notes of tart. The flavor follows the nose with additional bitterness. The palate is sweetness and bitterness. Overall a really good beer.

JStax (3339) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a larger white head of foam. The aroma has intense floral notes. Its reminiscent of the stem of a dandelion, actually. The taste is very sour and bitter plant matter. Refreshing. Kinda of like cucumber water with some lemon juice in it. Real fucking good.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Pours golden. Fruity and and clean but prominent lactic sourness with a moderate amount of funk mixed in. Flavor is earthy, funky, clean sour with a smooth character overall and fruity with almost a citrus like acidity. crisp mouthfeel. love this beer.

Refrigerated 75 cl green bottle poured into a tulip. Pours light orange with white head. Some lacing, medium body, well carbonated, and dandelion aroma. Taste is musty malt, tart, and dandelion. Good, but Cantillon has better.

I think of elderberry as a very European flavor. If you have not experienced a homemade elderberry cordial you are missing out and might not get the full effect of this beer. Really captures the light floral and citrus notes. Very refreshing, covers up some of the funk I expect from Cantillon. I forgot how good this is.
