Poured out as a really nice purple color, the smell of the beer is tart with some blueberry notes in the distance. The taste was a little underwhelming, it's still good but I expected a little more from all the hype this beer gets. The feel is good, much like any other Cantillon Lambic. Overall like I said before I guess I let the hype of this beer build a little too much for my expectation was a bit lacking. All in all it's a great beer but I was just expecting more from it.

Very lucky to be able check this one off the list finally! As soon as I popped the cork the blueberry aroma hits you....tons of blueberry on the palate as well! Glorious Cantillon offering but I think it is on the same level as Fou and LPF.

Great beer. 2015 vintage. Fresh blueberries, classic Cantillon feel, beautiful blue/red hue. As many have said before me, glad I finally got to try it but probably wouldn't seek it out again due to it's ridiculous trade demands. Preferred the Kriek that we consumed immediately after.

One of the coolest looking beers ever. Blue, purple, even a little light red to the edge of it. Must take a lot of blueberries to make this. Aroma was tart, sour funkyblue cheese blueberries, really dropped that on me something fierce, amazing ass aroma.

Taste, wow, just wow. Possibly the best Cantillon. Thick blueberry sour pancakes with goat cheese.
