Cristobal37 (2387) - Tustin, California, USA - AUG 27, 2023
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2023 Bottle at Cantillon. Pours dark violet blue. Aroma is wonderful sweet blueberries. Taste is more straight forward lambic with much less subtle, yet still sweet berry tinged. Really balanced, classic how the aroma is big on the addition, but the flavor isn't overpowered. Totally subjective but I prefer the sour fruits to this.

beerplace (8714) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2023
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2023 750ml (thx, Jens A. B.!) shared with Ryan in Riga's apartment after MBCC. Vintage 2018. Appearance: hazy purple with a rose head. Aroma: a mix of funk and blueberries accompanied by tannins coming from blueberry skins. Taste: along the same lines. It's more on the funk side now than on the berries side. But berries are still nice. Overall: wondering how this one would be when it was 1-2 years old, not like 5 yo as now. It probably could be more on the berries side. However, it's a great beer still, no doubt.

pictoman (7141) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2023
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2023 May 15, 2023: poured from 375mL bottle (2022 vintage). Same rating, slightly less funk, but slightly more berry. May 11, 2023 (8/4/9/4/17=4.2): Poured from 750mL bottle (courtesy of beerplace; vintage 2018). Purple-ish red with small pink-ish white head. Nice gentle blueberry with soft underlying funk. Well balanced, very enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2022 75cl bottle (vintage 2021) @ brewery. Head is big, pink, long lasting. Colour is dark red. Aroma is a lot of blueberry, bit rhubarb, lemon, red wine, woody, funky. Taste is very fruity, nice sour tones, light old lemon, a lot of blueberry of course, very juicy fruitiness, blueberry skin, funky, woody, bit rhubarb, medium to high carbonation, bit puckering, very nice balanced as I expected, fully enjoyed.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2022 Bottle at Cantillon, 28th April 2022. Pours a purple hazy beast. Aroma is fruit, berries, must and funk. Taste is sour, blackberry and blueberry. Taste is earthy, berries, funk and smooth sour. Really good, but not the best at Cantillon today

EdKing (3650) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2022
UPDATED: APR 9, 2022 Bottle at Cantillon Brewery. Opaque purple beer with clarity at the edges, briefly has white/pink bubbles. Nose is blackcurrant blueberry, tart and sour, touch of cherry, volcanic minerals. Has a Ribena like nose… more blackcurrant than blueberry. Taste is subtle fruit, soft blueberry, blackcurrant, tart, moderately so… overall soft and subtle fruit

AirForceHops (14870) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 19, 2021
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2021 750 ml. 2015 vintage. Thank you Adam for this really special lambic! Aroma is musty yeast, funky berries, white wine. Flavor is not as sour or tart as expected. Does show a good amount of funky berry, musty basement, almost has a sweetness. Really balanced with a lingering funky note.
