COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Please note the age of the sample you are reviewing when entering your rating. While many factors determine whether you have had "Jonge" or "Oude" Lambik, a general rule of thumb is to enter 1 year-old or older lambik under "Cantillon Oude Lambik" and anything less than 6 months-old under "Cantillon Jonge Lambik".

For those between 6 and 12 months of age, you should take in to consideration the character of the lambik. Samples presenting themselves as hazy/cloudy, with some head-formation and residual sugar should be entered as "Jonge Lambik", while those that are drier, higher in clarity and with little/no head formation should be entered as "Oude Lambik".

SirLimpsalot (3673) - SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2015
@ Cantillon 15-10-30: Ganska lätt och enkel doft. Smaken är lätt syrlig och ölen känns tydlig ung och omogen. Gott hur som hälst.

Light funk with citrus passion fruit notes, a bit of apricot and a clear bitterness. Some tannins and light astringency, more fruity, and not so tart.
