3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle at Akkurat. 2013 Vintage. So glad I got to try my biggest want finally! It pours a clean light orange / apricot color with a small white head that dissipates quickly leaving some small white bubbles on the side of the glass. Aroma is what I can only describe as cloudberries. Intense notes of salt, plastic and berry jam. Funk and lemon zest. Taste is acidic but not overly so. Berry fruitiness and light sweetness upfront. Mild salty kick on the back of the sip. Some more strange cloudberry notes over some funk and lemon zest. Light on body with good carbonation. As someone has said, this is now very fruity and somehow lacking complexity vs other Cantillons. It’s very unique but purely taste wise is not better then a kriek or framboise. Still thrilled for the opportunity.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013 vintage at Akkurat.
Pours slight hazy cider colored yellow with a finger of white head.
Smell is funky, not that tart, good amount of berry in it.
Taste is crisp, very light acidity. Some bile in the middle, fruity and zesty.
I feel like this could develop more sourness over time and become much more complex, but it sort of tastes like a fancy Berliner right now. Something you could crush while mowing the lawn, not a whale. Still very good and glad I had the chance to try it.

Rather complex, integrated, and nuanced, this lambic is not particularly sour. It is quite accessible but still very unique. Fruit is soft but not quite delicate.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle. Golden with tiny white head. Aroma sour and funky, sweet cloud berry notes and some jam, very pleasant. Taste is medium sour with very nice and clean cloud berry notes, almost a bit buttery. Grain and funk with a long fruity sour finish. Nice nice nice

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by a generous friend. Golden hazy body, handsome white frost up top. No real head or lace to speak of.
Aroma of grainy malt, melted plastic, phenolic band aids, yet still kinda nice. Lemony / grainy up front, tartness blends into the odd fruit character, hoppy at the end, finishes clean and dry. Low carb; just right.
Interesting (and thrilled I got a ~4oz pour!), but I'd take most other Cantillons over this every time.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Batch 2 poured golden yellow with white fluffy head and nice lacing. The nose was stone fruit and citrus with a suttle musty wood character.
Flavor was musty oak, juicy apricot and tart berries. Champagne like mouthfeel with a complex finish

A lot of cloudberries, which I really like. Sourish aroma with some citrus notes. Similar nice flavour. Lovely beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden with minimal white head. Lots of cloudberry in the aroma but also a bit of a plastic note. Medium sour, light body. Medium short finish. A good fun interesting sour but far from Cantillon’s best.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 Flaska. Stor hype. Härlig stämning! Väntar på fatet nu. 1,5h kvar.... Härlig funk och hjortron. Lite syntetiska inslag, lite som omogna hjortron kan ha.
Fatet är helt underbart. Inget av det syntetiska, bara ren njutning
Provsmak nu fyra månader senare och här har det verkligen hänt grejer. Mer kolsyra och skummar upp en liten krona. Tydliga hjortron både i doft och smak. De syntetiska dragen är i princip borta.
