I love this. Hazy deep orange coloured. Probably the best aroma ever in a beer. It is really hard to remove your nose from the glass. Huge aroma of fresh cloudberries. Even though the beer is now seven years old the aroma has not changed much becoming less fruity as in most fruit lambics. Very acidic and complex flavour with lots of citrus and cloudberries present. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2006
375ml bottle at the <a
href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/sweden/s target=blank>Akkurat in Stockholm, Sweden. Vintage 1999. Golden orange in colour, dissipating white head, no lacing. The cloudberries in the aroma are spectacular and they provide the sweetness, sour and tart, some wood, light orange zest, acidic. Easy one of the best aromas I have come across. I didn’t think that it could get any better then the aroma until I tasted it. Wow. The cloudberry sweetness balanced with the usual Cantillon funk make this one fun lambic. Apples, cheese, must, acidic. Lightly sour mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes sweeter then most Cantillon lambic, it seems to last forever. Astonishing is the only word I can think of. afrantzell (39) - The Court of the Crimson King, California, USA - JUL 31, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 Soleil de Minuit is a simple lambic, really --

There are the cloudberries, slightly sweet, somewhat tart, but still fresh after eleven years in the bottle. Then comes the lambic, easily recognizable as Cantillon - ripe socks, yellow woodsorrel, and antique armoires. The whole thing goes down with a champagne consistency.
-- and since this was available only in magnums, that came in handy!
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2011 Tried it a second time, and it is totally spectacular.
Probarbly the best in the world.
Cantillon Soleil de Minuit (årg. 1999).
Vilken fantastisk doft den hade. Fina aromer och en smak som trots sina 10 år fortfarande är mycket bärig. Ölen var ganska syrlig och hade en eftersmak som måste vara något av det bästa jag har känt någon gång. Det var lite vemodigt att tömma de absolut allra sista dropparna. philus (64) - Bazel, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2016
@ Akkurat last summer. Quite sure this was the best lambic I ever had. This one is worth the hype, in contrast to the Blabaer
