Pours crystal clear, dark ruby with almost purple hues. 2 fingers of dense pink tinged head builds and hangs around forever. An essentially perfect appearing beer. Aroma has a huge minerality, only mild lactic tartness, subtle pungent funk, not much fruit. Taste is burnt plastic like funk, some bitterness, moderate tart sourness, blueberries are subtle. I poured the sedimentation in a separate mini glass, it has huge blueberry aromas and was much sweeter and richer, a blueberry cobbler character almost. The taste was a little more tart and a little more blueberry forward but still not a ton. Ok back to the main pour. As it warms it opens up a bit like a good wine. Fruit comes out a bit, and lactic acidity builds but still never reaches the mouth puckering tartness of most Cantillons. It’s very clean, crispy even, with a high but appropriate carbonation and very good drinkability. Overall, a very nice beer. Is it worth the hype/hoops one needs to jump through to obtain it? The short answer is probably no, but hell it was fun anyways.

Bottle, RBESG 2007 in Glasgow, Grand Tasting. Hazy deep red colour. Distinct aroma of blueberries and ripe raspberries, also some woody notes. Very sour flavour, lemon and blueberry notes. Quite good.

2019, 375ml. Poured a deep hazy, purple-red color. The nose is fruity and funky. So funky it can start to smell like a bleu cheese. Taste is blueberry, with barn funk and had hay. The blueberry is light but not subdued. It plays well with the signature Cantillon funk. Mouth feel is light and perfectly carbonated. Overall, it was incredible and worth the hype. Cantillon makes plenty of great beers and Blabaer is among the top.

I have to admit this Lambik was difficult to attain and I had to pay. However, it was truly delicious. It was among the best Lambics, if not the best Lambic, that I've ever had. I also love blueberry, which certainly made this the perfect Lambic for me. It is unique and different yet similar to the best Lambics with its rich and tart flavors.

Look: dark purple with a pinkish finger thick head

Aroma: blueberry, lemon, oak.

Taste: The flavor is tart blueberry, blueberry skin, citrus, oak, some yeast,very refreshing, delicious and different.

Body/Overall: light to medium body
