Rask0lnikov (2716) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2019 375ml bottle. Huge thanks, martjoobolut! Pours bordeaux red colour. Thin pinkish froth on top. Beautiful blueberry aroma with lots of funk and muskiness. Grapes as well. Mineral notes, blueberries, berriful finish, earthy notes. Aroma is more complex than the taste. But still excellent fruit lambic.

martjoobolut (9513) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 18, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2019 2009 vintage, tap at Himmeriget. Pours red. Aroma and flavor are shit, sour, fruity, vinegar, oak, hint of funk. Overall: good, but one of the lesser Cantillons. Hope that trying the fresh one will change my mind.
2019 vintage bottle. Way less acidic and vinegary, more fruity, more berries. +1 to aroma, flavor, and mouthfeel.

4.5
Samuel214 (3659) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2019 Flaska på Himmeriget, vintage 2019. Supertjusigt mörk rödlila med stabil rosavit-röd krona. Fantastiska färska blåbärstoner med massor av blåbär, blåbärsskal, tanniner, ekfat, rödvin, en oerhört snäll yoghurt-ton, snäll stallighet och funk. Gott att dricka färsk! Elegant, välbalanserad, smakrik och samtidigt subtil. Så mycket av blåbärsskal och tanniner! Så bra!

Gerbeer (5494) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2019 2015 at Himmeriget. 375 ml bottle. Pours a beautiful clear red with light head. Aromas of red and black berries, vinous and green oak, and sharp wheat. Sharp clean flavors follow with a light subtle funkiness. Great blueberry presence without heavy earthiness. Special.
