Lambic ai fiori di sambuco.
Molto particolare, decisamente buona.
Personalmente al preferisco alla gueuze classica.
Più fruttata e un pò meno cida, si apprezza molto il sambuco.

This Cantillon Mamouche is a really, really odd beer. Its like someone made a salad and crammed it into a Cantillon sour, lots of vegetal and asparagus like character dominates a pretty sour gueze base. I dug on it for a little bit but ultimately couldn’t finish my sample.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle generously shared by khoffman43! (Thanks!) Light yellow pour, a little carbonation and a really odd aroma of dill pcikles. Although the aroma was off putting, the meld of funky yeast, hay and elderberries actually made this work. Not the best from Cantillon, but good.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is.intense pickles, super pickles. Flavor is pickles, slight funk and nice pepper/spice. Flavor is way better than the aroma.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2014 Bottle - thanks Kyle! Hazy golden pour with a white head. Dill and barnyard funkiness. Quite dry on the finish. Excellent!
Re-rate at Zwanze Day 2014. Getting a hint of pepper heat - just a tiny hint. Awesome.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Man, is that a pickle lambic?! This is what immediatly came to my mind upon the first whiff. It does indeed smell like some lambic infused pickles. Once we get over that it is actually really nice. Taste is medium sour with no sweetness (it ends up quite dry). Flavors once again remind of pickles, with a weird floral/vegetal (literally like dill to me) aftertaste. This is quite an experience, but not an unpleasing one. It is less over the top sour and funky which utimately makes it a lot more drinkable. Not the best Cantillon ever but it is still a "must try" for any lambic lover.
