Goodgrief (2056) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 25, 2012
Thanks to eaglefan538 for sharing this with me. Straw colored pour with frothy head and a fruity aroma. Just mouth-puckering tart, lightly fruity with pear and apple flavors. Just so funky. The cork had some kind of primordial sludge on it that made me slightly fearful, but this was delightful. I need more Cantillon.

Bottle, at the brewery. 2017. Pale orange. Light haze. Slim ring of white head. Nose has recognisable, cheesy, woody funk. Notes of elderflower. Baked apple. Squidgy pear. Very fruity, with maybe some light hop character. Taste is floral, and herbal sweet, turning dry, and light sour. Light body. Dry and cleansing. Woody, herbal, floral finish.

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.

Erzengel (9364) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2017
Bottle shared at the brewery. 2017 version. Great funky nose. The beer starts fruity. Lots of floral fruits, refreshing and sour. Not too funky, smooth with nice floral fruity parts. Fresh smooth funky sourish aftertaste. Great.

4.2
Cunningham (8282) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2017
Another nice and typical Cantillon beer. More easy to spot the elderflower in this one.
Hazed golden color with a fine white head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a fine carbonation level. Good balanced and mellow acidity. Elderflower, typical green apples, fruity and funky flavor.
[On tap at Zwanze -17 in Oslo, Norway]

Drinking at Herman Germany during a Zwanze Day. Very specific/orginal fruit & taste. Had a 2012 bottle before and liked it too.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 2014 draft. Woody elderflower aroma. so much elderflower. Slight vinegar. Flavour the same with less elderflower and more vinegar. Some vinegar burn in the throat. Not bad, but not favourite Cantillon.
