UPDATED: NOV 12, 2009 Placeholder until a re-rate. Had a bottle from what I believe was March 2009, Batch 4?. Very disappointing and nothing like I remembered. Now I need to drink a bottle from the cellar (Batch 002) and hope to erase this bad memory.

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.

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.

Bottle -- immense thanks to Rob for trading this one! This makes a pretty aggressive claim as soon as you pour it out -- it’s purple/blue and gives off a powerful smell of funk, barnyard, and berries. I’ve never had a bilberry before, but I’ve spent enough time in New England to have eaten my weight in blueberries, and this has a truly unique flavor combination of true lambic funk and an earthy, fruity blueberry flavor. Not as sweet or as sour as a lot of new-world fruited sours; this is instead a really balanced and complex fruited lambic. Wow.

Ruby colour, medium sized pinkish head; aroma of balsamic acid, tart, barnyard, leather, acetic acid, citruses and wheat; taste is the same with sour cherry; great lambik

Pyrmir (5844) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2016
Sample from 375 ml bottle at Brewskival, thanks a lot! Slightly hazy bluish reddish with pinkish head. Aroma has light blueberry, funky notes, lactic, slight acetic, fruit, lemon and more funk. Taste is funky and sour, bretty notes with lactic and acetic, blueberries, red berries, citrus and slight yeast. Good stuff but a bit overrated, there are way better cantillons

2015 vintage. Deep blueberry color with a single finger head. Aroma is light and tart with hints of musty fruit. Dry finish with hints of blueberry. Nice carbonation, not too biting. Slight grain taste with lingering fruit notes. Hints of sourness, but nothing overwhelming. Very balanced. The fruit is just amazing in this. I’d like to try it fresh one day. Medium bodied.
