75cl bottle.Smell - lemons and elderflowers. Golden yellow with a small but enduring white head. Taste - dry and acidic like a cider, balanced with sweetened lemon juice. Lemon dominates but there are background flavours - floral, under-ripe fruits. OK. Refreshing.

Thanks to Tommy! Looking forward to this one so I decided to crack it open after finding out I got promoted! Spicy chive and elderflower aroma. Clear golden yellow. Persistent white head. Floral notes with great balance. Some acidicity. Lemon zest. Unsweetened grapefruit. Elderflower comes through in the finish in the floral notes. Really delicious!

750ml bottle, bottled 08 June 2012, received in Urbancaver’s 2013 Dark Lord Day Single Bottle BIF, split with my wife. Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is huge, floral, I can only assume elderflower, vegetal, some lemony citrus, kinda smells like dill pickles. Medium on the palate with soft, smooth, carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, fruity, floral, similar to the aroma, but fruitier, some lemony tartness, with a light, elderflower finish that lingers for a while. Not my favorite from Cantillon, but a super interesting beer.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Hot damn. Ty MotherBrother. Pours clear yellow with a big white head. Smell is ez elderflower, hops and a slight sourness. Taste is both bitter and sour, and uses the elderflower very well! A little hay, a little grass, and some unripe grapes. A slight sweet orange perhaps? Fizzy, sharp and with a dry finish. Good stuff, but i’m not that much into elderflower.
Re-rate 2015, 10th of april. Im now a little more into elderflower, and this beer is really nice.

Pour slightly hazy yellow, with a small white fizzy head. Aroma of elderflower, slight tart, slight hay, gooseberries, horse blanket, some woody notes as well.
The taste is quite sour up front, with a nice amount of bitterness and slight fruity sweetness. A little bit dry when swallowed. Average lambik bodied - and carbonated.

This was lovely, possibly the best Cantillon Ihave had. Sour, but reserved, wild but austere, funk but not a punk. Lemony, flowery, perfumey but all the while sour and funky.

RBJG2. Again, big thanks to Travlr as I had only drunk this previously before I started rating. Golden slightly cloudy colour. Aroma is pickles, nice tartness, floral, citrus. Taste is herbal, nice sourness. Great beer again. Kind of surprised what I wrote, but that just gives me a reason to drink it again.
