750 ml capped and corked bottle, bottled on 07 June 2012. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours golden/orange with about an inch off-white head that didn't stay around for very long. There's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and tart, the brew smells like tart lemon, herbs/flowers (which I assume is from the elderflowers), oak, and some funk. It tastes like tart citrus, elderflowers (herbal/floral taste), green pepper, funk, oak, and some apricot. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's well carbonated and enjoyable to drink. I thought this was a good brew, I'd like to pick up another bottle at some point. Bottle from Etre Gourmet.

Picked this up in France @ Bootleggers.

Pours a nice golden color with a thick head that quickly disappears. Smell is intensely floral with a strong dill (pickle) note. Taste is tart and full-frontal sour with again a slight dill flavor. The oak is kind of lost but does add a slight smoothness to the mouthfeel.

Overall a very interesting brew with intense flavors.

Bottled June 7, 2012.

Beer is an opaque dark orange colour. Moderately sized white head.

Smell is soft and perfume-like. Clearly the elderflower scent, but not something I am independently familiar with. A slight funky, musty smell. Pretty restrained.

Taste contains a nice floral-like flavour (if you forgive the synaesthesia) that must be elderflower. The taste is quite tart, with some funk. However, the sour is not as intense as some Cantillons, and not as intense as it probably would be with some time. Wheat stands out as the primary malt base.

Light bodied, very strongly carbonated. Puckery. The carbonation is nice and champagne-like, but still a bit too strong.

Overall, very good. Despite the characteristic Cantillon sourness, it is a rather delicate beer.
