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 (6678) - Gteborg, 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 Ive had.

GlasgowTAD (1746) - 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 Pierre T. Dore sur un lger trouble, col blanc. Arme au nez fruit, pas mal de baies, fleuri, le tout est assez puissant et renforc. Le ct funk est un peu cach par leffet des baies, on y retrouve un lger bois. Palais est puissant au niveau plaquebire avec le caractre de mre pour leffet acidul et un aspect pic en bouche qui dure assez longtemps. Epic reste fortement marquee par ces baies, le tout est finemetn terreux, rpeux virant sur les airelles maquereau au niveau acidul. Correcte mais sans vraiment comprendre langouement 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. Wouldnt 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 coperaties 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 im 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

Was lucky enough to make it to Akkurat to try this. I had high expectations but was underwhelmed. For me it had too much going on and was poorly balanced.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2016 Bottle @ Akkurat 30/7-16. Shared with fillepolo. Fruity and bretty with a lot of horse blanket and barnyard, also acidic and woody. Body is medium, the finish is dry, tart and acidic with notes of grapefruit. Lovely!

Bottle @ akkurat Stockholm shared with Gaultier. Pours a golden colour beer with a small head. Fruity, bretty with a lot of cloudberries and a distinct taste of stable. A very well balanced beer that makes you want more and more with every sipp. Dry finish
