4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at RBWG. It pours a hazy yellow color. The aroma has some foresty herbals and flowers. A little earthy with a hint of acid. The flavor is earthy with some notes of sage and herbs. Nice soft funk and barrel notes. Typical Cantillon acidity. Very different from their other lambics. I liked it a lot.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml bottle March 2014 vintage pours semi clear slightly hazy orange with a finger of head. Nose is weird sweaty funk, ripe green pepper, light spice, grain and lemon. Taste is very strong weird green pepper spice, japapeno, vegetal herbs, grassy lemon and orange funk, finishes lingering green pepper, funky orange doughy grain and spicy grass. Medium tartness throughout. Could not finish my glass. Very unpleasant experience for me personally.

It seems like it’s derivative of Cantillon Berce. But it’s not - and therein lies it’s beauty. I seek this out but rarely drink it. Hazy and smelly, horse blanket abounds. A pleasure.

Never rated for some reason. Poured at the Shelton Fest in St. Pete, FL. Pours a slight pinkish amber in a small snifter. Small head. Aroma is some acidity, slight vinegar, flowers, cereal, vein cheese, and light fruits. Taste is up front in the acidity, cereal, cheese and then backs into the funky and the flowers. Lively card, somewhat dry. Really good flavors as always from Cantillon. Probably not my favorite but I’d still drink a keg a week of this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly cloudy rosé color with golden orange edges and a pillowy two finger head that has great retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Funky barnyard aroma with a strong floral presence along with some lactic funk, dry oak and earthy bugs. Subtle barrel/oak presence but the flower petals and lactic funk/cheesiness really stand out. Very faint acetic character but not solvent like or vinegary smelling.
Medium bodied with a dry, musty barnyard funk presence that lingers over light fruit notes, pale malts, musty brett and toasted oak into a slightly acetic, dry finish. The sourness is kind of tame but there is a lot of farmhouse/barnyard character and lactic funk, especially creamy cheesiness in the back end. Flower petals are also really prominent adding an odd, lingering bitterness. Not overly complex or as sour as I like from cantillon but packs plenty of funky bitterness and unique flavor.
