3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Almost clear golden body with a small off-white head. Lovely, funky aroma with some fresh grass, lemon, flowers and some wood. Flavor is quite acidic, lemon, flowers, light spicy and moderate funky. Not as complex as a good Geuze, but distinct, almost raw lambic heavy spiced with flowers. Medium to light body and acidic in aftertaste. Sure refreshing and interesting but probably not my everyday beer (if it was available).

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hand drawn at Backcountry on Sour Sunday. Pours hazy orange with very small white head, settles in seconds with no lace. Aroma is very funky and floral, huge elderflower, oaky and mildly tart. Flavor is funky, moderately tart up front with a big floral, buttery oak, tart, mildly vinous finish. Pleasant and tasty. Very soft carbonation, light body, juicy texture, and mildly astringent finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at En Öl- och Whiskymässa, Gothenburg. Pours hazy yellow with a smal tan white head, quickly disappearing. No real lacings. Aroma is a lovely mix of citrus, hay, barn, yeast and some fresh flowers. Taste is initially citrus, light vinegar tone, elder flower, yeast and becomes slightly bitter and rough with notes of herbs in the finish along with a lingering tartness in the background. Full body, medium carbo. Very nice!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy beige. Thin head. The aroma is full of elderflower, light sugar, and barrelly Cantillon. Hugely spicy and woody, subtle elderflower that grows stronger through the woody, austere finish. Quite a bit more bitterness than I’m accustomed to in a lambic. The underlying lambic seems softer and sweeter than most Cantillons. Tartness mainly shows at the end, which is basically the funkiest part of the beer. Great innovation. This really gets to the roots of beverage-making: take alcohol, steep with flavouring. The result, if lambic is one step from modern beer, is something that is two steps from it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange with a small pale head. Aroma is grains of paradise, wildflowers, spicy peppers. Spicy on the palate, with a balanced background of light sweetness and sourness, hint of herbal bitterness on the aftertaste. Taste is herbal tea, peppercorns, pickled peppers, lemon rind. Interesting

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at 3 Sma Rum, Gothenburg. Poured a hazy medium to light amber with a round white head. The aroma is citrus yeast light vinegar. The flavour is medium sour with a smooth wild yeast citrus palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. I feel honoured to be drinking this small piece of Belgium here in Sweden! Amazing. Now I’m thinking about food pairings. Perhaps I should stop thinking and just finish this bottle!

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of sourness, funkiness, some floral and earthy notes, light oaky notes, and some pale malts. Flavor the same with a great blend of everything. Average texture. Another great Cantillon beer.
