Rating 1700! Bottle - thanks again Adam! From my shiny new 3 Fonteinen tumbler, thanks for that too, Adam! Pours clear honey-gold, with a thin white head that laces really remarkably badly. Full disclosure: I LOVE Elderflowers! Nose is rosewater, lilac, lily, fresh ginger, orange blossom, apricot, elderflowers... Such an amazing nose. I thought that a big, brash, lambic like Cantillon would disrupt the elderflowers, but nothing could be further from the truth! Flavours of peardrop, flowers, rosewater, Thai basil, salt, still quite juicy. Just delicious!

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with full head that settles quickly. Aromas of green apples, elderberries, brett/body odor, and wild flowers. Vinous, light floral flavors with fruity lime and gooseberry notes. Still a beer? I don’t know, but it’s delicious.

Glowing hazy pearlescent orange, with a lasting head. Big floral earty tart scents. A full mouth feel on the sip. Floral tart sour earthy grape skin flavors.

Bottle in Brussels at Café des Spores. Pours a yellowy amber with small white head. Aroma is that oddly vegetal Mamouche quality: big bell pepper, flowers, stone fruit, caramel, light lemon but not especially acidic. Taste is apricot, basil, and elderflower, with grapefruit zest and light bitterness on the finish. Soft acidity. Grapefruit-pith bitterness grows with each sip. Light and smooth mouthfeel. Quite good.

Bottleshare thanks to homer321. Moderately tart nose with a laundry detergent kinda smell. Taste is flowery with moderately peppery phenolics. Taste is nowhere nearly as tart as the nose indicated. Some peppery spicey warming. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

DrewFace (484) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Pours a hazy orange color with white head. Initial typical Cantillon funky yeast aroma, citrusy character and light spicy pepper phenols. Funky yeast yumm flavor, tart, sour, followed by the pepper spicy notes. Very tasty.

Beer4000 (4328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2014
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).

750ml bottle pours a golden yellow with an off white head. Floral citrus and oak aroma. Taste is the same with a bit of a tart apple.

Brouwerij (894) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2014
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.
