Bottle shared by a generous friend. Golden hazy body, handsome white frost up top. No real head or lace to speak of.

Aroma of grainy malt, melted plastic, phenolic band aids, yet still kinda nice. Lemony / grainy up front, tartness blends into the odd fruit character, hoppy at the end, finishes clean and dry. Low carb; just right.

Interesting (and thrilled I got a ~4oz pour!), but I'd take most other Cantillons over this every time.

Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Batch 2 poured golden yellow with white fluffy head and nice lacing. The nose was stone fruit and citrus with a suttle musty wood character. Flavor was musty oak, juicy apricot and tart berries. Champagne like mouthfeel with a complex finish

A lot of cloudberries, which I really like. Sourish aroma with some citrus notes. Similar nice flavour. Lovely beer!

Toerstig (47) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden with minimal white head. Lots of cloudberry in the aroma but also a bit of a plastic note. Medium sour, light body. Medium short finish. A good fun interesting sour but far from Cantillons best.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 Flaska. Stor hype. Hrlig stmning! Vntar p fatet nu. 1,5h kvar.... Hrlig funk och hjortron. Lite syntetiska inslag, lite som omogna hjortron kan ha. Fatet r helt underbart. Inget av det syntetiska, bara ren njutning Provsmak nu fyra mnader senare och hr har det verkligen hnt grejer. Mer kolsyra och skummar upp en liten krona. Tydliga hjortron bde i doft och smak. De syntetiska dragen r i princip borta. --- Magnumflaska 140607. Delar p 10 pers efter bryggbesk p Carnegie. Inte hnt mycket sedan premiren. Lite mindre syntet och plster. Men har tydligt ldrats lngsammare n den senaste 75an fr ngra mnader sedan. Drag av hjortronsylt och hjortronkart. Fortfarande ung. Mr nog bra av ytterligare ngra r i kllaren.

395SEK, 5% 750ml bottle at Akkurat on a Friday night when it was hopping! 2012 vintage Lot A123 Clear light gold pour, slight haze of foam. Interesting aroma that I am finding tough to describe. It has a subtle fruitiness from the cloudberries with some Cantillon tartness. After warming up some oak started to come through as well. The taste is young, as Omhper noted it would benefit from some aging. It is sour, slightly lactic, causes some puckering but reveals the fruity cloudberry flavor in the lingering dry finish. Really cool stuff, once I have the Blaeber I will have hit the rare Cantillon trifecta!

callmemickey (4526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2013
2013 bottle. Golden colored body, decent size white head, spotty lacing. The nose is bright cloudberries, apricots, and lemons against a back drop of light oak and must. Flavor is similar with a nice juicy, fruity sweetness that pairs well with a lively acidity. Medium to light bodied, assertive carbonation, lingering finish. A real treat. I can see the oak and must developing further with time and adding further complexity.

PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle at EBT2 2013. Shared with Mathieu87 and Joris. Thx Joris for sharing! APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, flat beer, little to no foam. NOSE: very sweet, typical cantillon nose, didnt smell this before! TASTE: very dry, dry out, though rather sweet, very sour, but amazing sweet finish! Never tasted cloudberries, but was amazing in this beer!

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2015 Wow. oak,oak and more oak aroma. Like sniffing fresh oak barrels smeared in with cloudberries. The whole bar smelled this one for sure. Taste: more oak with cloudberries, a little funk and sour. Finish of tart, cloudberries,some funk and some sour. When it warmed up: Less oak, a little more funkyness. Overall: the best lambic to date. That smell. Holy shit!

Bottle at Akkurat in stockholm. Chemical smell with burned plastic and aceton. Fruity taste with berries, dry and sour. The smell wasnt pleasant but I hope it will disappear over time. The taste was ok. Only poor beer Ive had from Cantillon
