Hazy bright gold with a foamy white head and loads of creamy lace.

Maybe I had a bottle that was treated improperly, but I was told before I drank it that it tasted like green pepper, and that's all I got afterwards. Maybe it was psychological, but I will look out for it again, because it had a nice little funk to it and wasn't entirely offensive, but certainly my least favorite Cantillon, easily.

Shared 750 ml bottle at Himmeriget in Copenhagen.

Great looking beer, straw colored, clear, with lots of bubbles.

The nose is perfection, and as much elderflower smell as I have ever smelled. Another Cantillon I could just smell for hours...

The taste is a bit more diverse than the smell. Still a ton of elderflower, but with a bit of apricot and raspberry as well. The finish is amazing, as a slight hop bitterness settles on the tongue, and just caps the flavor beautifully. Acidity is spot on.

Great feel, bubbly and dry, and goes down incredibly easy, like most Cantillons.

This might be my favorite Cantillon, along with Rosé de Gambrinus. Perfect nose and taste, balance and finish is second to none.

750 ml bottle at Himmeriget in Copenhagen. This is a beautiful lambic that showcases the delicate and remarkable flavor that elderflower can bring to a beer. Pours beautifully. Really nice, although it took second place in a back-to-back with Vigneronne.

This was the first bottling of what later become mamouche and what a beer is this!

Elderflowers match perfect.

Far the most underrated but best beer of Cantillon!

A: Very floral with a lemon/grapefruit aroma, pretty funky and lightly sour aroma.

A: Bright yellow, slightly hazy with a moderate, uniform white head that has solid retention. There is light lacing in the glass.

T: Floral upfront, slightly mineral, moderately funky, with a lemon/grapefruit note, very clean lingering sourness and a dry finish.

M: Med-light bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Tasty; the elderflower provides an interesting floral and slightly spicy character that well compliments the gueze base.
