UPDATED: NOV 25, 2013 Fläder är tydligt både i doft och smak. Hög syra. Ca 2 år gammal flarra. Världsklass. --------
Färsk flarra (någon månad) i bryssel. Doftar fläder i hela baren när vi häller upp. Underbar doft. Påminner ju en hel del om flädersaften man drack som barn. Good times

Bottle. The pour is is a hazy yellow orange. The aroma is all sour. The taste is a little too carbonated. Also a little spicy.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
bottle share at hill farmstead’s post-3rd anniversary. pours almost clear bright golden with a very nice white head, good retention and lacing. aroma is very complex: flowers, plants - yes, a hint of dill, but it’s not overpowering and don’t seek for pickles here, funk-plenty, ginger, very nice lactic presence complemented by subtle woodsy notes, some pale fruitiness - maybe a hint of apricot and something flowery tropical in there along with white grape must. dusty and yeasty. old fatty and grassy hops. bright carbonation, light body. will re-rate, too bad it was my bottle.. but always glad to share. awesome brew!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
