Bottle at Akkurat. Hazy gold beer with a pink tint. Short lived white head. Palate is softish for a lambic. Semi dry and with a crispy trailing edge. Mild sourness, this is very approachable. Pleasant and interesting fruity tartness that is not quite like anything else and itís not acid and thus is not too much. Finishes light and semi dry. Easy going and refreshing lambic.

Svesse (7510) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2013
(Bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm and draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 18 May. 2012 vintage) Pale orange/golden colour with brief head. Slightly hazy on tap. Fruity, sourish nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, cloudberries, green grapes, stable and northern Swedish mountain bogs. Fruity, tart taste with citrus, grapefruit, green grapes, cloudberries, hints of New Zealand hops, stable, barnyard, oak wood and a dry, tart finish. Medium body, dry. In my opinion it doesnít reach the heights of the first version, the berry character is a bit more subdued and understated. It will probably evolve with a couple of years in the cellar, so hopefully they will put a fair amount of bottles aside. Very tasty and refreshing beer. Very nice.

Pundarquartis (19) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2013
New batch bottle at Akkurat: Full of fresh, sweet cloudberry flavour with a pleasant sourness to balance it all out. Slight phenolic character that didnít bother me at all or diminish the fruitiness of the beer either. Will be exiting to see how the beer evolves throughout the years.

Tinco (604) - LinkŲping, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle at Akkurat 2012 vintage. Hazy orange with no head. Aroma: cloudberries, horse, a little bit of dung?, fruity, some funk, something strange in there that I canít put my finger on...Taste: balanced sourness with cloudberries, green apples, hay and classic some classic cantillon notes. For me the bottle felt a little bit young. Also had on tap at Oliver Twist. The strange thing in the aroma was gone and the cloudberries were more prominent. All in all an awesome brew!

Bottle at Akkurat. Hazy amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is sour berries, some tart, a general dry sourness to it. Flavour is sour, acidic, a bit of fruitiness. Finish is very sour.

Bottle at Akkurat. 2012 version. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is cloudberries, oak, funky tart. Taste is medium sour and light sweet cloudberries. Medium body with the kind of sticky smoothness that is typical to cloudberry jam is present as well.

Bottle at akkurat at release Phenolic character blended with cloudberries and some cantillon... I canít say if I like it or love it one of the coolest lambics Iíve had due to the hype... But itís not as good as Re rate when I had the keg. 4.6 Bottle when fresh 4.2

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2013 Bottle at Akkurat. Hazy light orange liquid with small white head. Aroma of lemons, apples, barnyard, sweet berries, wood, fruity funk and earth. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of cloudberries, barnyard and lemon. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Very nice, but not the best Cantillon Iíve had. A bit phenolic (rubber) in the bottle, better from keg.

Bottle @ Akkurat, shared with Ludvig. Bottled 2012. Awesome cloudberry flavours. However some strange band aid thing going on. On tap @ Oliver Twist Soo much better more berries no band aid.

This was an unlabeled bottle with a cork from 1999 into a Narke tulip given to a friend by a really good friend not in the USA. A - Pours golden in color, fizzy white head, bubbles on top. S - Super funky tart nose, light fruit, some booze for only 5%. The fruits are sweet but Iím not exactly sure I can pick out cloudberries. Musk, hay, and light acidity. T - Super sour, tart, light booze burn on the finish, lightly oxidized, light fruit aspect....not sure if itís cloudberries or not, but some fruit is there. For only 5%, Iím surprised how much alcohol there is on the way down. The finish is very tart, light fruit. M - Light body, light carbonation, dry finish. O - Sour...very sour. Not as much finesse as I thought there would be with this Lambic. I think the fruit has been overtaken by the tart funky notes, but still, thereís some complexity. I am grateful to have tried this beer, and I know Iíll never have it again. Thanks to my friend for making this happen because of some genuine beer karma....much deserved.
