Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, - NOV 12, 2012
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!

Bierridder_S (638) - BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2016
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.

DroolYeast (943) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2016
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.

yourilevesque (1229) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2016
De moi à moi pour mes 37 ans. Vintage 2012. Un nez surnaturel de fleurs, de raisins blancs, de pissenlit. Aucune note aigre ne me parvient. Je suis dans un jardin de fleurs, bien loin de la Brasserie Cantillon. Je cherche avec la plus grande détermination la Signature de la Brasserie dans cet ouragan d’arômes vers et ne la trouve pas. C’est bien la Cantillon qui sent le moins la Cantillon qu’il m’ait été donné de déguster! Des arômes végétales de concombre, de petit cornichon. Une bière qui appartient à une catégorie à part. Des saveurs orientées vers un légume vert très amer. J’ai l’impression d’une salade de feuilles de radis, de pissenlit. Une quantité importante de pollen et de poivre blanc concassé. Magnifiquement amère, une bière qu’il me faudra déguster à nouveau, tant cette dégustation m’aura déstabilisé.

GrumpyOldTroll (59) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2016
This beer is very divisive but it has grown on me over the years. The nose is very strange; elderflower and green peppers dominate the nose. Light body and high carbonation.

daje (3782) - NORWAY - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, march 14th 2015. Hazy light orange body with white lacings. Aroma is funky with elderflower and peach, taste of barnyard, grapefruit, flowers. As sour as expected, but the fruity flower taste adds a layer of fresh juicyness. Sour funk aftertaste. Extremely nice.
