Thanks to eaglefan538 for sharing this with me. Straw colored pour with frothy head and a fruity aroma. Just mouth-puckering tart, lightly fruity with pear and apple flavors. Just so funky. The cork had some kind of primordial sludge on it that made me slightly fearful, but this was delightful. I need more Cantillon.

BlizzardOz (14) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle at the brewery. Pours a hazy amber with a clean white head. Big hit of elderflowers both on the nose and palate. Super fresh and vibrant. Superb balanced tartness with a dry finish. Fine carbonation. Really a special beer.

Beerconnaiseur (155) - BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2015
Ambery yellow golden pour. Aroma of elderflower, bitterhops and even some sirupy tangy scent of agave intertwined with the elderflower. Medium to low carbonation with hints of hops, citrus, rubarb, lemon, soft aftertaste of elderflower that mellows out magnificently. Balanced, soft but tangy this 2014 Mamouche. Normally dont’t like ef. but here it has a humble but round presence. Especially present in olfaction. Drink fresh or experiment and age 5-10 years.

Kirunavinter (12) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2015
Hazy golden color with a white head. Big aroma hits you with fresh elderflowers, some rhubarb notes and some nice funky sourness notes aswell. The taste is really well balanced between the sourness and the juicyness from the elderflowers. Light to medium body.

oh6gdx (21326) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottled. Hazy orangeish golden colour, not too much head. Aroma is citrus, dry wood, tart berries and some farmyardy notes. Flavour is famryard, sour/tart wood and some berries along with some yeast and mild parfumed soap (though not all too sweet such).

Pyrmir (3682) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2015
On tap during Brussels vacation, vintage 2014, smoking fresh. Aroma and taste is lovely with loads of elder flower, nice bretty notes and tart/acidic notes that balances up the flowers. Loses the fresh flowery notes fairly quickly, drink fresh!
