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.

corby112 (2689) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
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.

Bottle pours light hazy golden, with a white head. Aroma of funk, elderflower, basil, tart, funky. Taste is elder, sour, quite sweet with elder flower, lacks some tartness, but overall a pretty complex and balanced beer.

Sampled at The Festival in Florida. Aroma: lots of flower mixed with some apples and a tiny black pepper touch. App: hazy pale golden, no head. Taste and palate: light to medium body, vinous, medium acidity finish. Overall: perfect palate and awesome taste. Didn’t taste the flowers that I had in the nose.
