My first Cantillon! 2013 Vintage. Had a strong barnyard/hay nose, taste was extremely funky but also crisp and refreshing.

Tasted amazing. Smelled like I was working a cat with a UTI. Horrible, but awesome at the same time.

Bottle dated 6/26/2013

Taste evolved as the beer warmed over several hours. I recommend drinking this beer closer to room temperature. The elderflower takes center stage of this lambic and showcases as green, herbal, medicinal, floral and peppery. It's quite unlike any other Cantillon or for that matter any other beer I have tasted. The green pepper flavor is off putting at first but opens up into something that is quite interesting and complex. Wet grass, pungent fresh cut weeds, a sweet floral aroma and a peppery floral overtone. The lambic base is sour, funky and slightly cheesy. A nice experience for sure but I'd choose a classic geuze next time.
