Cantillon Blabær Lambic
As part of a beer tasting event at a friend’s house, I sampled a glass of Cantillon Blabær Lambic. The beer pours a purple color, which is an astounding sight, with a thin filmy white head. The aroma consists of sour blueberry and cherry. The taste is sweet and sour at the same time. The blueberry makes up the sweet part at first before a tart and vinegar-like flavors kicks in on the tongue. The finish gives out a nice pucker that makes you squint, but is very enjoyable. The alcohol content is 5.0% ABV. The Cantillon Blabær Lambic is by far the best lambic that I have had, even though my scope of tasting in lambics is not very vast. The wonderful mix of sweet and sour, as well as an awe-inspiring appearance, made for a great experience drinking this beer.
