5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
375ml bottle at the <a
href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/sweden/s target=blank>Akkurat in Stockholm, Sweden. Vintage 1999. Golden orange in colour, dissipating white head, no lacing. The cloudberries in the aroma are spectacular and they provide the sweetness, sour and tart, some wood, light orange zest, acidic. Easy one of the best aromas I have come across. I didn’t think that it could get any better then the aroma until I tasted it. Wow. The cloudberry sweetness balanced with the usual Cantillon funk make this one fun lambic. Apples, cheese, must, acidic. Lightly sour mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes sweeter then most Cantillon lambic, it seems to last forever. Astonishing is the only word I can think of.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Akkurat, 2006. I think the vintage was ’99. Beautiful orange, cloudberry colour. Sparkling. The nose is full of lambic sourness and cloudberries. So is the taste. Dry and sour, surprised at how well the cloudberries go with the lambic, as if they were made for each other. The combination really makes sense. Seems I’ll have to get a hold of some other Cantillon brews in the future.

Hazy golden coloured with a small but lasting off white head.
Aroma of horse blanket and wood with light acidic notes.
Flavour of horse blanket, wood, berries and cloudberries with light acidic notes.
Not as acidic as most other lambics from Cantillon.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Beautiful dark golden, little unclear body with a small beautiful white head that lasts; Super, super deep exceptionally complex, very intense nose. Very interesting balance between sweet and sour. The Hjotron stands out exceptionally clear, with some sweetness (I only know the smell of Hjotron from Hjotron jam, though), behind it there are lots of grapefruit, wood, vanilla etc. IT IS JUST FANTASTIC!; The body is very, very sour and dry and fits the nose perfectly; It moved into a just as sour and dry finish, again with lots of Hjotron in extreme lengths. Very, very well balanced beer, even when this sour and this dry. AMAZING!!!

Bottle at Akkurat in Stockholm, Sweden. November 2005.
Brewed for Akkurat by Cantillon, flavored by cloudberries. Put on bottle in 1999, matured well since.
Very nice smooth scent and flavor, well balanced but still sour. Part from the price I wouldn’t mind having a few more ot these.
(Bottle at Pub Vildanden, Lund)
Shady copper color, white head. Sweet mixed with sour scent, some cloudberry as well. Sour cloudberry fruity sweet taste, also citrus. Cloudberry aftertaste. Spritzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Average rating: 9/4/9/3/18=4.3

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized white creamy head. Sour berries in aroma (you can’t really tell which), along with typical cantillonish dry sourness. Pleasant lambic, which has been stored for a while. Only thing that sucks is that it completely lacks cloudberries in flavour and aroma...

Hazy orange, creamy white head. Typical Cantillon nose: sour, fruity. Earthy, sour, fruity, dryness cuts cloudberry flavors. Balanced, sour Cantillon. Ageing has cut the corners. Great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled@Akkurat) Opaque orange color with no head. Dry, fruity cloudberry aroma. Very authentic cloudberry flavor with some rough bitterness in the finish (because of the cloudberry seeds, maybe). Dry, sourish, contrapting palate with a nice, mouthdrying finish. Nice, enjoyable and dry, as can be expected from Cantillon...

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy golden, with a frothy white head. Aroma is intense of fresh cloudberries, and cantillon funkyness. Taste is tart, with the usual Cantillon barnyard/brett parts, a rather sweet cloudberry part, and som sourness.
