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.

Huge thanks to DocJ007 yet again for the crazy beer he shares with us all. 375ml bottle from 2012.
Pours deep reddish purple with a one and a half finger tall white head, slowly dissipating down to a light film, leaving small webs of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smells of sweet/tart fresh picked blueberries, the ever present Cantillon musty brewery funk, some mild lactic sourness, yogurt and finally some grains. Taste follows the same path with plenty of tart blueberries and lactic sourness up front followed closely by the must and finally the lightly chewy grains. Feel is slightly grainy quickly being enveloped by plenty of musty sourness and slight sweetness from the berries.
Overall an excellent fruit lambic. I still prefer a few of there others more but I would never turn down another chance to try this one. Glad to finally get to try it, thanks again Justin!

375ml bottle of the 2015 Vintage.
Tried at Himmeriget, Copenhagen; 160 Danish Krone for the 375ml bottle
Excellent stuff from Cantillon & easily the best of the albeit limited selection of lambics I’ve tried so far. Starting with a nice cherry & raspberries taste, the blueberries came through strong soon after & there was plenty funk/tart too. An excellent balance & great mouthfeel, the beer had a lingering sourness that stayed with you after each sip; excellent stuff & a must try if you can find it.
