Bottle, vintage 2010. Hazy orange liquid with medium to big white head. Aroma of lemons, apples, elderberries, barnyard, sweet tropical fruit and wood. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of elderberries, barnyard, lemons and apple skin. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Awesome beer.

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.

Bottle at RBJG 2 Grand Tasting, thanks Travlr. Chuwy was duck. Hazy golden colour with a large white head. No lacing. Sour slightly funky flowery aroma. Flavour is sour, funky, citric, flowery.

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.

Tastes of nothing but green pepper. I mean sure if you try you can get Elderflowers from that, in the worst way. Its not even sour enough to hide the horrid taste with a blast of funk. Stick to the classic and leave this thing alone. Unless you like green pepper juice. Then guzzle this thing.

KyotoLefty (8748) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 31, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 2010 bottle in Nov 2014. Nose of green peppers, some smoke, liked roasted chipotles. Flavors of lemon, leather, chili, smoke, cabbage, lemon. Very strange and original, very fun and delicious.

Bottle shared by Trvlr, 2013: 7/4/8/4/15 Nose of pickles, cabbage, lemon, acid. Flavors of citrus (mostly lemon), veggies, light yogurt, funk. Very interesting stuff. Rather oily palate. Strange but likeable.

75cl bottle, 2011 vintage at Torst shared with jrgratz and other RBers. Pours clearish gold with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is incredibly floral and herb-like. It’s earthy, funky, and yeasty: it’s like smelling spring in a bottle. Incredible aroma unlike anything else. Beautiful taste of flowers and herbs and elderberries with perfect acidity and funkiness. I haven’t tasted a beer with this sort of floral profile before. Really terrific beer.

Acida e stranamente speziata, una cantillon disgustosa, si salva solamente l’aroma.

Tasted for the first time at Zwanze Day at the Holy Grale in Louisville. Pours a hazy peachy golden color with a small white head. The aroma has some funk, floral notes, herbs, peppery spice, and some dill with light fruity notes as well. The flavor has an odd combination of dill, florals, peppery spice, mild fruit notes, sour and funk. I need to revisit this again and update.
