About as rare as it gets tick... Doesn't hold up as well as some other older cantillons, ie gooseberry and red currant... A bit oxidized, very sour but with a bit of alcohol and vinegar, touch of tart fruit, rind... Good not great but a very grateful ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Was lucky enough to make it to Akkurat to try this. I had high expectations but was underwhelmed. For me it had too much going on and was poorly balanced.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2016 Bottle @ Akkurat 30/7-16. Shared with fillepolo. Fruity and bretty with a lot of horse blanket and barnyard, also acidic and woody. Body is medium, the finish is dry, tart and acidic with notes of grapefruit. Lovely!

ineedbeer (1819) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle at Akkurat, 2015 vintage. Aroma is very nice with a moderately strong berry aroma, though with and herbal, tannic note similar to berry leaves and skins. Light herbal note. Light oak notes. Berry is light enough to allow the base beer to show through. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a medium sized, white head that recdes steadily. Second pour had some berry sediment. Flavor has a medium to medium high berry note. A moderately strong tannic note from the berry skins and seeds with a bit of an herbal, berry leaf note. Medium light oak notes with some light hay and light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, still not my favorite berry lambic as the tannins are a bit strong, but the berry notes are very unique. The lighter cloudberry character does a nice job of integrating with the base lambic.

Yellowish golden color with moderate head that dissipates pretty quickly. The nose is all cloudberries. The newer batches also have a bit of a plasticy thing going on, especially the 2013 vintage. Overall a very excellent beer.
