Bottle thanks to Chris at Ebenezers, a generous selection to say the least. Reviewed from notes. Bottled on June 15, 2010.

A- Split 5 ways into stemmed goblets with a hazy golden body, clearly some yeast floating around in solution. A foamy white head builds up to a finger tall. Good retention. A good pillow sticks around from the head but doesn't leave any lace somehow.

S- Reminds me a lot of the regular Gueuze but with a superb flowery aroma added into the mix. Lemon sourness, herbal, barnyard grass, funk, oak and that Cantillon bug mix you get used to after having a few beers. Floral feel contrasts the lambic beautifully.

T- Just like the aroma a very nice floral feel atop something reminiscent of the Classic Gueuze. Funk and a nice sourness are followed by herbal and grassy notes. A nice base of lemon sour, oak, lactic, tiny acetic, apple and grape notes.

MF- Light body that is dried out by all of the flora present. Sour level is moderately high but other Cantillons can top this, for better or worse. Standard foamy carbonation.

I had no expectations for this one but for me the elderflower addition gave off a nice herbal and floral feel that combined amazingly with the Cantillon funk. Might be my favorite of their beers so far.
