4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared at Yazoo release party. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Bold funky aroma. Nice assertive flavors (funk, herbs, tart lemons) with a semi dry finish. Very complex and wonderful. I enjoyed this more than the 1900 and Classic Gueze.

Pours golden yellow with a small fluffy white head. Aroma is amazing, herbal, funk, earthy and floral. Taste manages to be tart, sweet and sour. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle. 2011 bottle. Originally reviewed 9/29/2013.
Pale hazy orange body. Nice big white head. Lasts forever as a pillow of foam.
Hmm. Smells of green peppers. Grassy. Grainy. Lemony acids.
Taste has green peppers t00. Kinda malty. Sour. Grassy green sourness.
Well carbonated. Seems heavier than other Cantillons.
Still no idea what an Elderflower should taste or smell like, but this smells and tastes like green peppers.

Butelka, rocznik 2013. Bardzo fajny i intensywny aromat dziki, zestowy, skórzany, z lekką sugestią bzu. Smak średnio kwaśny i wytrawny, w smaku zest, winogrona, agrest, skóra i nuta bzu. Dobra rzecz.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2016 version. A 500ml pour on tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels into a Cantillon gueuze glass. It was a clear-ish golden orange colour with a two finger white head that had excellent retention and nice lacing. Nose is mainly sour, flowery and grape. (I have no idea what elderflower smells like, so I’ve described it as a generic ‘flowery’). Tastes of grape, white wine notes, flowers, grape gummy candy, sour and funky. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall this was nice and I would drink more, but it’s not my favourite lambic.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
26/07/2016 - draught @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels.
Clear at the bottom, hazy above orange with nice white head. Nose is flowers, sour, fruity, citrus. Tase is grains, flowers, gently sour, faint burn, yoghurt. This is absolulately stunning. Could one rate this below 4? I’ll go for a 4.9 because I hope there’s still a better Cantillon out there but it’s definetly worth a 5.

Bottle at a share. This has all of Cantillon’s trademarks -- puckering tartness tempered by a light body, high carbonation, and a good amount of funky barnyard Brett -- but the elderflower adds a very subtle fruitiness that softens everything out. Quite a nice treat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 2013 and 2014. 2013 got +2 in Palate.
2014: Aroma is light tart with elderflowers. Yellow colour with white head, not lasting. Taste is light sour with light elderflower. Light body, dry feel, sour elderflower and maybe tiny sulphur in finish. 6/10 - 4/5 - 7/10 - 3/5 - 15/20
2013: More yeasty/earthy aroma, more vinegar, still some elderflowers. Same appearence. Tasta has a little sweetness too compared to 2014. Same palate, except finish is better. 7/10 - 4/5 - 7/10 - 5/5 - 15/20
203 rating is added.
