2010 Bottle. With all the hype I didnt think this beer could impress. It did.
Pours opaquely blue with a pink head and a funky sour nose nose. Earthy, leather, lactic sour taste. Some tart sweetness with a massive fruity body that doesnt thin out. Light to medium carbonation. Absolutely fantastic. bulldogp04 (28) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2010
375 ml Batch 6 courtesy of Daknole !!
A: pours an amazing deep purple, with a cream and purple colored small head. Able to see through the beer when held to the light.
S: smells of the distinct cantillon funk. Pure lambic all the way. Notes of lactic acid, freshly picked tart blueberries/raspberries. Musty wet hay, earthy horseblanket funk.
T: similar to the smell in that it’s cantillon all the way. Tart Blueberries, lacto, earthiness, light oak, tannic blueberry skins, very vinous and similar to red wine. Finishes nice and dry.
M: extremely drinkable. Not too berry sweet and not way too sour either. Great lively mouthfeel with perfect carbonation. Finishes crisp and dry with a great lingering tannic blueberry and sour lambic flavor.
D: could drink this all day everyday if I didn’t end up with massive heartburn !

Rating #2500! 12/17/10. Bottle shared with huge thanks to Keith (fata2683) before he moved to AZ! Nice purple and brown pour with a nice solid white head that is fluffy but goes fast. Big funky aroma with soapy fruits, tannic fruit skins, and yeast. Huge puckering sour flavor that lingers with huge blueberry skin... I’m very impressed by the sourness without huge acid and vinegar. Amazing! oj83 (12) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2011
2010 75cl bottle. Well what can I say that everyone hasn’t already said. The beer pours deep purple with plenty of carbonation; there is enough funk and horse blanket to set up your own imaginary farm. The taste has a perfect sourness level with plenty of Bret and fresh Blueberries and a soft mouth feel. Only problem with this beer is that it goes down far to easy, you try and savour it but before you know its all gone and you are left wanting more. My favourite beer to date, massive thanks to traPISSED and Anker for getting me this one. kmyers8807 (176) - Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2011

A - Dark plum and raspberry appearance. Minor line of carbonation.
S - Wow. Intense scent. Tons of blueberry. Big oakiness. Super tart nose back of the throat. Very very sweet. This smells wonderful.
T - Holy moly. This is an incredible beer. Gigantic up-front tartness with a barrel of blueberries. Nice. Just fantastic.
M - 20% carbonation on the mouth feel. Oily and slick and super tart. Very balanced dry finish.
O - 98/100. All aspects of this beer are great. I’m in love. Very nice and very enjoyable.
Thanks to Brad for sharing this at his tasting on Saturday!
A: This brew pours a stunning shade of deep blue, bordering on purple, with radiant crimson hues that give the beer a brilliant appearance. Sitting atop the liquid is a thick layer of lilac colored bubbles. The head retention is something to behold. I have never seen a head camp out for this duration of time, most especially on any Cantillon offering. I’m not sure if it’s ever going to fade.
S: Distinctive and easily recognizable as Cantillon. Tart fruits and barnyard funk aromas. It’s difficult to single out blueberries, though the overall aroma is fantastic.
T: Sour blueberries as fresh as they can be, balanced with enough tartness to make the beer utterly slammable. Wow. This beer is just phenomenal.
M: The feel is a bit on the thin side. If it was perhaps a tad thicker, maybe it could be even more tart and fruity?
D: I truly wish this was more available. Definitely one of the best beers I have ever had. andrewje41 (3741) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2015
2009 vintage bottle pour shard by Diceman. Thanks for this unexpected surprise. What a beer this is. Rating from notes. Pours a thick bright swirling purple color. If i didn’t know better I would think somebody was using water color paint in this glass. Beautiful color for sure. Huge sour cherry, blueberry, and blackberry for the most part. I pick up a stronger blackberry than anything else, even though I know what’s here. Huge sour fruit finish. Damn. Awesome beer here. vjohans (756) - SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2015

An absolutely wonderful beer. A smooth tartness with very balanced blueberry flavor complements. It's like popping a fresh blueberry in your mouth. It dances on your tongue and makes you wish it wasn't as rare as it is. No head and lightly carbonated. This beer was and treat.
