bottiglia alla brasserie cantillon... veramente particolarissima.. al naso si sente la speziatura molto forte data dal sambuco che sembra quasi peperoni!! tutto accompagnato da note citriche acide di lambic.. piuttosto corposa e carbonata... pazzescaa!!

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.

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.

(2017) Well I was kind of hoping for more. The aroma is super promising (elderflower super strong). Te base is really delicate white wine alike and slightly sour.

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.

750 ml bottle, bottled 14.6.2016, shared by Werckmeister, many thanks. Pours a hazy, dark golden with a white head. Mild aroma with some sour berries, some funk, blossom, very lightly cellary and very lightly cheese, fermented fruits. Light to medium body with a medium carbonation, a light sourness and a light to medium bitterness. The flavor starts with some citric acidity, lots of tart berries, unripe gooseberries, white grapes, quince, pomelo. Towards the finish there are tart elderflowers, light woody, some cheese. Overall very balanced, finishes dry and slightly astringent.

Score: 8 / 4 / 8 / 4 / 18

750 ml, bottled 14/06/2016, bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Orange, moderate hazy body, with a medium, frothy, yellowish head.
Aroma of sweet elderflower, barnyard, unripe fruits, citrus, some basement, some wood.
Tastes quite similar, with a bit more of the unripe fruits, like pears and apples.
Medium to light, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium dry, moderate funky, sour-fruity, cheesy, wooden, with elderflower, unripe pears, green apples.

Very tasty, balanced stuff. Just the right levels of funkiness, sour fruits and sweet elderflowers, with a pleasant dryness towards the finish. Among my favourite Cantillons and a really characterful style example.
