Cantillon Blabaer Lambik Vintage 2015.

Acidic, tart, funky, and tannic on the palate. One of the best uses of blueberries in any beer I have had.

Overall, a really nice fruited beer that requires far too much effort to acquire. Your life will not be worse without it.

Rating the '14, drinking it side by side with the '17 which I would give a 3.75 at best...not sure what's up with the '17 or if I'm having a bad bottle. Drinking at Himmeriget (7/19/2017)

Vintage 2015

A: Pours a dark purple, with a ruby reddish hue. Head is less than half an inch high with pinkish and blueberry highlights; good retention, and beautiful lacing

S: Plethora of blueberries amidst barnyard hay. Excellent funk presence with sensible bitterness that’s all very lively, earthy, and aromatic: lemons, oak, strawberry jam, raspberries

T: The blueberries, berry skin and seed take the lead. Nicely acidic, tart, and funky with compliments of earthy grounds: hay, grass, oaky barnyard gobbledygook

M: Foremost crisp, clean, and perfectly balanced with a soft yet lively medium feel; earthy component brought forth graciously

O: Ridiculous amounts of blueberries yet cultured, and complex: lingering raspberries, grapes, strawberry jam, and lemon with a timely funk/tartness
