2009 vintage. 750mL bottle poured into an oversize wine glass.

Pours a hazy maroon body with a light pink head. Aromas are bursting with blueberries and typical cantillon funkiness. Vinous, citrusy, woody, musty.

On the tongue was tart blueberries and fruit skins, barnyard funk and yeasty, musty basement. Oaky, jammy, tannic, citrus, lactic, lively, acidic.

Tons of flavor here, the fruit held up great over 9 years.

2009 batch 2 bottle. Poured into a Torst glass. Dark blue/purple in color. Minimal head. So much blueberry! Smells amazing with blueberry and funk. Some mustiness in there too. Flavors are blueberry abound. Can’t believe how much fruit is present for a 9 year old bottle. Tons of blueberry with some funk. Super balanced. Feel is thick for the style, probably because of the amount of blueberry in it. Overall, this is fantastic. Just an amazing lambic!

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.
