UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Very nice sour! Medium carbonation. Aroma of elderberry blossom. Sour and sweet, also spicey, some notes of pepper. Interesting!

Bevuta alla spina. Ottima lambic caratterizzata soprattutto da aromi floreali. Bionda con schiuma bianca abbastanza persistente. In bocca è molto fresca e leggermente acida.Buona

75 cl bottle to oversized snifter (shared with the wife; bottled on June 8, 2012. Looks good; an opaque orange with white lacing. Smells good; floral and funky. Some pickle juice too, but not in an aversive way. Tastes good too; like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel. The elderberries add a whole nother level of depth to the base beer (which is already remarkable).

Tasted at Funk N Sour Festival at Jester King Craft Brewery. Aroma of cat pee. Overly sour. Hints of chile pepper and fruit. Not a fan.

Bottle courtesy of khumbard, thanks Kevin! 750 ml capped and corked bottle served in a Deschutes tulip. A: Pours a clear golden yellow color with a frothy, pure white head forming on the pour. Some soapy splotches of lace are left down the glass. S: Some light funk and fresh cut grass are present. Some sweet flowery notes as well, but overall the profile seems somewhat restrained. T: Dewy grass and sweet flowery notes. Lemon grass, green apple and some light tartness. Restrained funk and tartness on the finish. M: Light and crisp. Refreshing with spritzy carbonation. O: The flavors were light and slightly restrained. It was still a nice beer, but wasn’t all that tart or sour. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-29-2012

bottle: tasty sweet malt, light candy and fruity. lightly spicey with a great sharp sour. very floral and herbal-like tanins which perfectly balance the lactic notes.

Elderflower? Ok, is like Violets with pepper and of course... the brett character. An other planet brew. Incredible.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 There is a reason why I love this beer so much! Firstly, I love Cantillon and the taste they manage to get in their beer. but at number two is the love of my childhood, when I was little, I got elderflower juice very often. My beloved father makes the best! and when you mix two of the best things available it sometimes becomes absolutely brilliant! that’s how it was when i tasted Mamouche for the first time! Then there is also the Zwanze 2009, it did not have the same flavor and lovely elderflower aroma! there was someone in the group whom i shared the bottle (at Moeder Lambic) talking about jalapeños which meant that I could not stop thinking about it. of course without the hotness, yet a clear taste of green chilies.
