I typically don't struggle to find the words to adequately describe beers, but this one is almost above me. The nose is at once tart, funky...a bit of musty oak...but also soft and sweet on the floral side. Exquisite on the tongue, with tart fruits being toned by a slight pepper-like spice. Incredibly unique and delicious. What a treat to sample a beer I'll most likely never see again.

2011 Cork

Pours golden orange with a ring of white head, some lace as well. Smell is quite floral right away, funk and elderflower, lavender, acidic, cheesy and lactic , with an oak closer. Taste is sour and floral, spicy earthy flavours with elderflower and more of the lactic-cheesy flavour form the nose, pot-pouri/acidic/oak finish, quite dry with a lightly fruity aftertaste. Medium carbonation, dry-medium body. While this ranks among my least favourite offerings from Cantillon it is still fairly good, at first I found the spicy/floral points distracting but on the second and third pour I found it was integrated much better, would gladly revisit this.

Pours gold with a large fading head.
Nose shows funky notes, pronounced elderflower, peppery characters, perfume-like.
Flavours include more pepper, some elderflower-derived capsicum notes, more floral perfume, followed by a refreshing tartness.
