A: Pale yellow color with a fleeting bright white head that fized away quickly. Clarity is good on the first poor and gets cloudier with suspended sediment (expected). Lacing is mild but doesn't stick around long. Classic lambic look

S: Big bright classic Cantillon funk (hay and barnyard) leaps from the glass. Soft floral perfume like aroma with compost-ey / decomposing leafs aroma. Unique in aroma and not as brightly sour in the aroma as other Cantillon beers I've tried.

T: A refreshing medium-heavy lemon citric sourness that seems to evolve as the beer opens up. A pleasant balance of damp basement, decomposing leafs as the elderflower is flavors increase in the beer. Neutral oak flavor that adds more of a grainy mouthfeel then a flavor. Slight lactic bite with refreshing finish.

M: Crisp finish and moderate carbonation. Mild body. some tannin extraction giving the impression of drying / more body. mild tingly sensation from the sourness on the tongue.

O: Uniquely flavored lambic like Cantillon knows best. I'm not very familiar with elderflower in any other context so it would be hard for me to identify the exact contribution on the beer but the floral to wet leafs nose and flavor would be my assumption. Nice beer overall
