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.

neepsntatties (1420) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle shared by "hannont". Colour...light, hazy straw with a thin wisp of a head. Nose...decidedly fruity and lightly funky with yeasty notes as well. Palate...massively sour while still being dry and fruity. Floral notes abound and there’s a spritzy feel about the palate. The finish is long and tart.

Bule (1277) - California, USA - AUG 14, 2015
750ml bottle from May 2014. Wonderful gooseberry aroma. Mildly sour and full of gooseberry flavor (which I guess is what the elderflower tastes like). The flavors balance so well together.

CraftBeerNick (1273) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle in garden, 2nd August 15. Pours clear, aroma is sweet and sour, floral perfume. Taste is delicious floral notes, not overly sour, but still enough to keep it interesting. Really great Cantillon and very different from the others.

neongolden (795) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
(750ml 2014 bottle @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, July 27 2015) Pours a hazy pale gold with a small lingering white head and lace. Aroma has elderflower, cut grass, lemon rind, pickle, yellow plum, barnyard, medicinal herbs, some wood. Flavour is quite delicate and elegant. Lots of cut grass, flowers, very fresh. Some of that fresh pickle character, soft lactic sourness. Finish has a bunch of flowers and fresh vegetation. Light to medium body, soft effervescent carb. The floral characters make this delicate and very pleasant, fresh, the much-maligned pickle is no issue in my opinion. A different fruit lambic but a really enjoyable sipper.
