*** 2019 blend contains 10% raspberries *** Cantillon Blåbær Lambik a lambic with bilberries added and produced for Ølbutikken in Copehagen, Denmark. It is produced in very limited quantities and is generally released sometime during the summer. It is released in both 37,5cl and 75cl bottles and is 5% ABV. Blåbær Lambik was first released in 2005 and has been released every year since then except 2006, and 2008. Though the word blåbær translates in English to blueberry, the fruit used in this lambic is the European bilberry which is very similar to the American blueberry. The fruiting process for this lambic consists of putting fresh bilberries directly into the barrel with the lambic.

Pours dark red. Small pink head. Scent is extremely intense, Berry. Fruitskins, bit peppery almost. Taste is full, salty touch almost. Fruitskins, much more fruit than I remember the version I had to be ( 13 or 14). Nice beer, but not amongst the best of this brewery, even if it's rated as such.

12/IX/20 - 37.5cl bottle @ Cantillon brewery (Brussels), BB: n/a, gonna go out on a limb here, and assume this was the 2019 vintage (2020-891) Thanks to Erwin and ElManana+1 for sharing today’s beers.

Little cloudy deep purple beer, small creamy pinkish to brown red head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: funky, mildew, cellar, some blackberry jam, funky. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: spicy, cinnamon, acidic, nice acidity though, bitter touch, fruity, blackberry jam. Aftertaste: bit oxidized, fruity, jam, some cinnamon, something a little dirty, soft acidity, funky, some mold.

Unmarked 37.5 bottle at the brewery, guess it's 2019. Hazy reddish purple with small dull pink head. Leaves a lot of sediment in the bottle. Deep funk, blueberries, soft red fruits, wheat, dead leaves. Quite some earthy funk. Medium sweet and sour, solid medium bodied. Pretty tasty.
