Clownoisseur (482) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2017 Bottle at Akkurat. Hell yes! Finally! Pours a slightly hazy golden. Nice carbonation, pillowy white head. Fades to a ring and broken lace. Aromas of cotton candy, light funky cobweb, light floral, light grape skin, light oak. A bit unassuming, initially. As this opens, the funk deepens and some nice brett note emerges. Horse blanket and more berry skin. Taste is incredibly smooth. Low acidity, medium funk, medium oak. Fruit is subdued but clean. Silky smooth mouthfeel makes this way too easy to drink. Dry finish with more berry skin, oak tannin, horse blanket. Great beer!

Pours a paling yellow with a white lacing. Aroma is vinegar, grape must and what I can imagine cloudberries taste like.

2015 vintage. Bottle shared at Akkurat. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is minty, some cloudberries (at least as far as I remember from the jam), nice funk. Taste is dry, cloudberries, extremely dry, but with lots of flavour. Medium carbonation. A real masterpiece, so much perfectly incorporated fruit, and so dry.

Bottle shared at Cantillon by Jean. Big thanks, boss. Pours hazy bright orange with a small white head. Aroma is PACKED with cloudberries, wet grass, citrussy zesty notes, some lemon, cheesy and cellar funk. A subtle acetone that thankfully disappeared after a little warming up. The smell on this is BONKERS. Taste is just as good. Huge cloudberry up front, lots of zesty flavours, huge cellar funk here aswell. So happy to finally have tried this!

Poured at the brewery. Pours Golden clear yellow, aromas of seabuckthorn and a crisp acidity - super transparent, the cloudberries clearly dominates this beer. Long sour finish

ekstedt (6752) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2017
Bottle (75 cl) shared at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden. Clear deep golden to orange. Odd, phenolic aroma, could not pick up any cloudberries. Dry, medium to high acidity. The least good Cantillon I’ve had.

4.5
GlasgowTAD (1768) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle at Akkurat. Pours clear orange with a highly effervescent white head. Aroma is basement, sweaty socks, parmsean cheese, berries. Taste is light citrus, mouldy brie cheese, berry tart, modestly zesty lemon rind. A lightly citric, cheesy and tart berry affair. Modest carbonation.

Bouteille 75cl, merci à Pierre T. Dorée sur un léger trouble, col blanc. Arôme au nez fruité, pas mal de baies, fleuri, le tout est assez puissant et renforcé. Le côté funk est un peu caché par l’effet des baies, on y retrouve un léger boisé. Palais est puissant au niveau plaquebière avec le caractère de mûre pour l’effet acidulé et un aspect épicé en bouche qui dure assez longtemps. Epicé reste fortement marquee par ces baies, le tout est finemetn terreux, râpeux virant sur les airelles à maquereau au niveau acidulé. Correcte mais sans vraiment comprendre l’angouement pour ce produit.

At akkurat. Years-long dream fullfilled here ! Pours clear blonde, small white head. Smell is very fruity, mild funk, some Wood. Taste is sour, very dry, extreme Cantillon funk as well as fruity wild yeasts , berries,together with their earthy Taste. Sourness, but in a balanced manner. Veru dry, but not astrigznt to a point it becomes negative. Wouldn’t call it Balance, but i would call it a beer that looks upon the bounrizs of extreme tastes, without crossing them. Very very well done. Cantillon funk coöperaties extremely well with these fruits. One of the best Loons to date ! I agree with the previous rating - while blabaer is hyped up completely ( the pretties looking pour, but one of the least Loons ) this one is with all the good comments. I traveled to Sweden just to try this ( and some others ) and all I can say is i’m happy i did

@ Akkurat last summer. Quite sure this was the best lambic I ever had. This one is worth the hype, in contrast to the Blabaer
