Look: golden yellow with a thin white head

Aroma: elder flowers, apricot, grapefruit maybe.

Flavor: The flavor is fruity sweet like apricot, slightly floral elder flowers, and a complex moderate tartness like lemon and white grapes, soft, thirst quenching easy drinking that goes perfect with spicy food.

Body/Overall: light to medium body, a bit prickly, easy drinking, incredibly thirst quenching

Lambic with elderflowers of a unique elegance.
Immediately elderflowers delicate on the nose.
Aged for a year, drunk on tap.
Brettanomyces well distinguishable but it does not confer a very astringent sour.
One of my favorites of Cantillon for balance, taste (the elderflower is already released on the nose and with delicacy it seems almost just infused in lambic), elegance and ability to accompany food (white fish, delicate risottos, smoked scamorza cheese etc.)

I completely ignored this beer for years. I heard it was good so I asked my friend to order us one at the brewery. Wow.

The couple next to us drank multiple bottles of this beer and gave us the thumbs up when they saw us pop one. That's how you know.

The elderflower flavor is incredible, the lambic flavor is unrivaled, this was unbelievable.

Jalapeno aroma was the weirdest thing I've ever experienced from Cantillon.

This one missed the mark for me. The wonderful lambic taste with fruits and yeasts playing together so nicely is ruined by a spicy wildflower and almost serrano pepper element for the flowers, along with a sour lemon tartness. Cantillon is usually so balanced and pure, but this is murky and all over the place, even with the honey sweet elements. Feel is still spot on for style however.
