Lemonade infused with dandelions, ginger, and cat pee. Palate just as spicy - white peppercorn, medicinal herbs. Also apricot preserves. A good beer but better in small quantities due to intense herbal flavor.

On draft at Zwanze 2014 Holy Grale

Pours hazy straw. Nice fine bubble head. Sliky appearance. Tart nose - sour yeast, neutral oak, cider vinegar. The taste is tart with sour apples, white grapes, oak, with a noticeable earthy finish.

Very good as expected.

June 26, 2013, thanks to rudzud for sharing. Guess I never reviewed this.

Pours a great fizzy bubbly almost 1 finger head fades pretty quickly though, mostly clear golden color. 4.25

Nose very floral, sweet flowery chamomile tea like, sweet tea and candied notes, then Elderflower really comes through, mild citrus rind note, faint lemony and Clementine like, just a little lambic funk, fruity weird berry like. 4.25

Taste sweet to start, little sugary sweet tea, quickly into herbal flowery tea, little chamomile and Elderflower, definite bitter Elderflower, bitter leafy medicinal thing, dandelion like weed herbal bitter note. Little sticky lemony funk, funky lambic but meh. Finish is dry bitter, quite bitter Elderflower bitterness, so bitter almost wormwood like. Finish dry bitter, little grapefruit note, bitter, wormwood, Elderflower, etc. 3.75

Mouth is med bod, decent fluffy carb, tart.4

Overall 4

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Split with JLindros. 6/26/13 bottle date.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a clear golden hue with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps and a thin halo. 4.25 (x .05 = .213)

S - Aromas of floral elderflowers, great tartness, musty basement, great earthy lambic notes, light citrus. Quite pleasant. 4.25 (x .2 = .85)

T - Taste is very tart, loads of floral elderflowers. There is a medicinal herbal note that doesn't work for me. Rather sharp and harsh. Very nice lambic notes but the floral I'm not digging. Too herbal and medicinal. 3.75 (x .45 = 1.688)

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, bright. The finish is rather medicinal. 4 (x .1 = .4)

O - Overall this beer was a big let down. The elderflower was rather harsh and brought some off flavours. Shockingly underwhelming, never thought I would find a Cantillon I didn't like but yeah, this is it. 4 (x .2 = .8)
