Hazy golden. Slightly burning sour, smells barnyard. Tastes spicy, sour, vinous. Rask0lnikov (1609) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2017
Bottle at the brewery. Pours golden yellow colour with moderate white head, which disappears quite quicky. Pickles, black pepper, spicy notes, hints of sulfur, slight sourness in the aroma. Black pepper, pickles and sourness at first. Sourness and pepper in the middle. Slight acidity and black pepper in the end. Taste is very delicate and rather unconventional, but very good. jinroh (2571) - ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2017
Bottle shared at the source. Pours light hazy orange, not much carbonation there. Nose is soft, lightly acidic, some fruitiness and fragrant funk overall. Taste brings out lots of elderflower, really liking its soft velvety touch. Light herbal character giving way to slightly bitter and tannin-filled finish. Displays the flower nicely, another masterpiece from Cantillion. NZJoe (65) - NEW ZEALAND - NOV 13, 2017
Bottle from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Cork dated "16/17 Season".
Moderate amount of carbonation. Hazy golden in colour. Aroma is definitely elderflower - for those who know it, you will recognise it straight away - but could easily be mistaken for just being lemony or funky. Taste again is elderflower, mango, lemon and sourdough. Sourness is probably on a medium level. Very well balanced beer in general. A joy to drink. Spectacular really. Elegant and in a class of its own. Ive had a few sours lately which are just amateurish in comparison. This is how its done. Cannot be improved upon in my book.

W zapachu dużo bzu, w smaku dość kwaśne, trochę dzikie, bez tez jest ale mniej wyraźny niż w zapachu, dość ostre i mogłoby być lepiej ułożone. witt (96) - Elsinore, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2017
