4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 28-10-2012: Bottle (750 ml) 2009. Traded by urbancaver, thanks Cam! Pinkish/red with purple reflects (the last pour was deep purple) with a small persistent white/pinkish head and good lacing. There was still plenty of blueberries in the aroma with the usual Cantillon barnyard and wild notes and hints of wood. Unlike the other ratings I’ve saw here, I found the blueberries to be more present (and fresher) in taste than in the aroma. Agressive Cantillon-style barnyard/leather taste with nice wood notes. Dry, acidic and astringent mouthfeel. Good carbonation. This is the best fruited lambic I’ve tasted so far (closely followed by Saint-Lamvinus)! 9-4-9-4-18 = 4.4
21-04-2013: Bottle (375 ml) 2012 vintage. Shared by Jeffo, thanks. Hazy reddish purple with a small pinkish head and little lacing. Aroma is of blueberry skin with light citris/lemony notes. Quite smooth on acidity. Taste is also of blueberry skin with some barnyard notes and a light but sticky herbal finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish. If I remember correctly, the blueberries were much brighter in the ’09 vintage we had last year. It’s still very blueberry forward, but not explosive. Really a long lasting blueberry skin aroma and taste. Good balance. Very nice lambic, just not as mindblowing as I remembered. 4-8-8-4-17 = 4.1

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Entering Ølbutikken july 25th 2015, just a week after the 2015 release of Blåbær, we had a tiny hope the beer was still availible. Past the table,heading for the fridge to the right, it stood there alone on the shelf. One single 750ml bottle of Blåbær. Yes! So, does it live up to the hype, or is it just a really nice lambiek with bleberries added? Deep ruby with a tiny pink head it looks beautiful in the glass. Strong sour aroma with a heavy blueberry presence. I’ve had lots of blueberry beers, brewing it myself too, and one thing common for all of them is that the blueberry aroma and taste is hard to capture in full. Not in this one though, here the blueberries shine through and taste actual blueberries, together with the pleasant funky and sour Cantillon taste. I can only can conclude that the hype is justified, this is probably the best berry beer I’ve had ever!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Himmeriget in Copenhagen. Fruity and tart smell with blueberries. Similar taste. It lacks something in the flavour profile, some depth is missing. Not as good as the hype makes it out to be, there are other Cantillons that are allot better. Still a very nice beer though.

Bottle@himme. 2015 vintage. Dark reddy blue huey colour. Cantillon funks, barnyardy, bilberry, bit black curranty nose. Well mixed tho, isnt blueberry overpowered, rather just finely flaviured. Med bodied, soft tarty, dry, blueberry straw malty. Really nice. Like the bluedry fruityness.
