I think of elderberry as a very European flavor. If you have not experienced a homemade elderberry cordial you are missing out and might not get the full effect of this beer. Really captures the light floral and citrus notes. Very refreshing, covers up some of the funk I expect from Cantillon. I forgot how good this is.

Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Tart and sour aroma. Tart and sour flavor with earth and light herbal notes. Medium bodied. Tart/sourness lingers with light acetic notes, earth, and light herbal notes.

Bottle. Hazy gold/orange with a whiteish head. Earthy bitterness (the elderflowers I presume) with Mint, grapefruit, oak and barnyard funk. All flavors very well balanced together. Soft mouthfeel and not overly acidic. Highly drinkable. Spectacular and unique.

Ysok02 (264) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2015
Un superbe lambic au nez complexe et élégant qui allie sureau, fleur de sureau, lambic et note de houblon. Bouche tout en fruit et fraîcheur, de la puissance, de l’équilibre, de la longueur et de la complexité.

Dr_Fellini (771) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle to glass at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy straw golden color. Has a decent sour nose with big spicy floral notes. Touch of sour in the flavor, but overpowered by the Elderflower spiciness. Very unique. Nothing like any of the other Cantillon offerings, but I like it.

2014 bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color with no head at all. Tart aroma with a strong floral finish. Medium sour taste with a floral mix in the balance. Amazing beer. Light sourness. Love this beer!

Alpha10 (415) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
2015/04/19 - On tap at Le Fine Mousse in Paris. Pours a cloudy, dark orange/honey colour with a small white head that quickly disappears. No lacing. Aroma is wood, floral tones, apple, peach, funk, orange and straw. Taste follows nose with wood, straw, funk, and tart apple, orange, citrus and peach. Mouthfeel is thin to medium and silky with mildly biting carbonation and a funky finish that is tart and drying. Really good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
