4.2/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This may not be the highest rated Cantillon going but I really dug it; it was offbeat, unique, and flavorful. Slightly hazed, very light gold body, two finger head that settles rather quickly; a little patchy lace here and there.

Really an unexpected and pleasing aroma; tart lemony notes; musty funky aspects, but a clear note of fresh garden veggies out of left field. Not as in vegetal, not a stinking, overcooked cauliflower aroma, but that of fresh picked tomatoes from the vine, raw zucchinis and green peppers, clearly the product of the elder flowers. The taste also includes this unusual note; it’s subtle but always there; the fresh and moderately sour lemon flavor cuts and compliments it nicely; and the funky hay and barn notes round things out. More typical herbal, flower and oak elements also come into play; the finish is dry; green peppers are noticed in the short and clean aftertaste. That sounds pretty odd but in this beer I thought it worked wonderfully.

Medium-light body, medium carbonation, crisp, easy to drink, average acidity and sourness, doesn’t assault the mouth and gullet. This definitely won't be everyone's cup of tea but I was a fan.

750ml bottle poured into balloon snifter 14/6/14 cheers Kmat10 for opening the bottle

A a bit of a yeasty pour, cloudy orange liquid, a few bubbles but not a whole lot for head or lace

S floral, cheesy funk, kinda smells like taking out ragweed with a whipper snipper, caramel, lemon, apple pie filling crust included, mild spice, vinegar, and wet wood

T plenty going on much like the nose, less floral notes, some cereal comes out, sour but not overly so, not exactly what I was expecting

M almost foamy, slick on the palate, some pucker to it but mellow, strange weedy finish

O something different and interesting, I can't think of anything else I've had that's similar, not my favorite offering from Cantillon but worth a try

I'm happy to try it but not the same world class experience I've gotten from Cantillon in the past, maybe I'll like it more in a decade or two.
