750ml @ Akkurat

Pours out gueuzey. Clear apple juice like with a thin white cap.

The tumbler glass isn't the best for aroma but a fresh pour yields a nice smell. I am anticipating the taste greatly. Has the Loon funk to it and plenty of fruitiness.

Pretty funky with hay and barnyard and horse blanket, etc. Sharp acidity stings the throat. Fruity with the acidity of green apple and lemon. Apricot, green grape, and pear.

Light carbonation and dry as hell, but gets the mouth watering.

The price tag hurts so much, but I somehow made it to Stockholm so why not.

750mL bottle served at that place in Stockholm, lambic basket and proper glassware.

The appearance is a light orange tone with a small white head that does not sit atop for very long. Pulling this towards my nose to check the aroma and I get funk, hay and do get some cloudberries coming through. The aroma did not disappoint and continues to build anticipation of tasting this beer. Upon taking a small sip, I taste oak, a general earthy funk and a good dose of cloudberries. I am someone who has enjoyed cloudberries several times over the years and this beer did a great job of using this Northern Scandinavian fruit. The mouthfeel is a bit champagne like and finishes quite dry. It leaves you with some of that sourness, but not too much. All in all, this beer lived up to my hopes and expectations, which were high. It is a great beer and worth the $.

Bottle shared at Zwanze Day 2013.

A: Clear pale yellow/orange. No head, small foam/head ring around the edges of the glass, no head in the middle of glass.

S: Fruity. Not sure what an actual cloudberry smells like but I get apricot, cranberry, pears, some white grape musk. Mostly light fruit nose, a bit of acetone.

T: Disappointingly acetone/nail polish remover. There is some of that fruit that I mention in the smell, white grape, pear, come citrus like orange and lemon. Very little sour or mustiness, do pick up some wood/oak.

M: Nice enough. Surprisingly carbed mouthfeel for very little head on the pour.

O: Really fortunate and glad I got to try this, especially outside of Sweden. Definitely didn't live up to the hype. It was a solid enough offering from Cantillon but to be honest would take most of their regular lineup any day.

Batch 2

poured golden yellow with white fluffy head and nice lacing.

The nose was stone fruit and citrus with a suttle musty wood character.

Flavor was musty oak, juicy apricot and tart berries.

Champagne like mouthfeel with a complex finish

Overall- delicious
