Pundarquartis (19) - Copenhagen, - SEP 11, 2011
Blåbær: Doft: Det första som slår mig är hur mild och subtil blåbärsdoften är, den är inte lika in your face som körsbären från dess kriek eller hallonen från deras framboise. Ytterligare känner man, utöver den traditionella Cantillon-funken med sin halm och ladugård, en jordighet från blåbæren som framhäver en del alkohol, något som gjorde mig en aning förvånad. Det är inte ofta man känner alkohol i en Cantillon tycker jag. Smak och munkänsla: Direkt känner man givetvis blåbären, mycket tydligare än i doften. Cantillonfunken jag nämnde ovan visar sig också tydligare. Därefter kommer en massa skogsbär tillsammans med lite pinje och jord i bakgrunden. Mild syra, vilket är att vänta med tanke på dess ringa ålder, med en nypa sötma som balanserar upp det hela riktigt fint. Ölen är torr och lätt och är varken komplicerad eller svårdrucken. Utseende: Mörkröd/violett med en vackert rosa skum. Har inte druckit någon öl förut med den här färgen och måste säga att den är riktigt förtjusande. Totalt: Blåbären gifter sig underbart med syran från ölen och den subtila sötman tillsammans med skogsbären gör att ölen blir en fröjd att dricka. Jag drack min första flaska Blåbær vid releasen i år och blev lätt besviken på smaken, men såhär i efterhand måste jag säga att min åsikt har skiftat. Blåbær förtjänar kanske inte all sin hype, men jag kommer garanterat köpa den nästa år trots dess höga pris, det, i alla fall, förtjänar den.

sjogro (3767) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2017 Kermis the cellar digger just levelled up! Thanks for sharing. A bottle labeled "16". Hazy dark purple with light pink head. Big sweet and sour berries, similar to (but apparently not the same as) bluberries, hay, grapes, grape most, big funk. Grape stone bitter. Moderate sweet and sour and bitter. Over medium body, very very juicy, soft carbonation, lovely stuff.

Svartvit (512) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle shared by kermis, 2015 vintage, thanks! Pours a nice dark red with a pinkish head. Heavy on the berries but also very funky, more than I remember from previous occasion. Really deep, intense funk with a nice depth to it. Berry sweetness. Over medium sour, medium sweet. Medium body & carbonation.

Maakun (5184) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle shared massive thanks to kermis!! Deep purple with light purple head. Lots of hay, funk and horse on the nose when smelled directly from the glass, but there’s also strong bilberries from a bit further away. Taste has loads of Cantillon funk and horse, soft fruits, hay, light minerals. The berries are a bit in the background, with mostly berry skins coming to the foreground. Medium sour, light sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Very good, though not as fruity as I expected.

mariuspoenari (2555) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle shared. Hazy dark ruby pour with a pink head. Notes of blueberries, forest fruit, dark cherries, a lot of funk, minerals. Quite tart, slightly mouth-puckering but pretty nicely balanced by sweet and mineral notes.

Heather_B (254) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Incredible. Smells like dark fruits and beautiful lambic mold. Looks ruby red with a small pink head. Mouthfeel is great - carbonated but not overly so. Flavor is straight blueberry juice.

Garrold (5075) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle. Himmeriget, Copenhagen. 2016 version. Darkest pink. Soft haze. Pale pink, foamy head settles to a thin ring. Nose has that unmistakable Cantillon cobweb fustiness. Soft, tangy, ripe red fruit. Some vanilla oak. Some new leather. Taste is dry and tart, with a light, berry sweetness. Mouthfeel is cleansing, with some acidity. Finishes dry and slightly acidic. Hint of berry sweetness hangs in until the close.

Bottle (2016) at himmeriget, Copenhagen. Aroma is packed with red fruits and obviously blueberry. Also some of that funky lambic smell. Amazing. Taste is bitter, sour and rather dry. Really crispy and clean.
