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".

Dunt (288) - Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Glass sampled from a pitcher at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow/brownish yellow in color with very little head formation. It’s pretty flat overall. The nose is lemon rind, must, barnyard, and some light apple. I can definitely tell the difference between this sample and the oude lambik on cask at Moeder. This doesn’t quite have the assertive acidity that the Oude lambik does and it doesn’t seemed nearly as developed. The flavors are softer, but unrefined in comparison. Light, dull mouthfeel that is a little watery and oily. Has a short to moderate finish. While this wouldn’t bet first choice when it comes to Cantillon, it was definitely cool to see the progression of their lambic.

Mpuntmuts (137) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2013
Free glass from brewery. Pours gold/yellow and a little hazy with absolutely no head. The aroma is full of fruits and sours. Very fresh smell. Taste of sour apples, citrus fruits. Really sour tart tongue shriveling flavors. Smack!! Mouthfeel is thin and dry, like white wine with mild sparkling. Nice beer but too much like wine for me.

BelgianBeerGal (3201) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2013
1 year old poured from the jug at the brewery. Hazy gold color, perfectly still with no head. Light, tart aroma. Light flavor that doesn’t overpower you. A gateway lambic. Classic.

prawlie (1154) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
On tap at Cantillon brewery. Orange, slightly hazy, flat. Bitter, dry (very), and a bit sour. Smells of horseblanket, sour. Goes down pretty easily. Prefer the blended gueuzes though.

Lowenbrau (1983) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 26, 2013
Cask @Chez Moeder Lambic Fontaines. Fruity, grapy, some tart aromas. Pours golden, a bit hazy, with nice creamy white head, persistent, poor lacing. Light body, texture is a bit sticky, average carbonation. Taste is fruity, grapy, tart, some sweet hints. Very smooth, balanced and enjoyable.

Holmen1 (2575) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
Fra fat på Cantillon-bryggeriet etter rundtur uten guide: dette blir vel så ekte som overhode mulig.Ulikt det meste annet jeg har smakt, og attpåtil er det godt, ikke bare interessant! En unik opplevelse som jeg gjerne gjør igjen, og nå vet jeg hvordan man finner lettest mulig fram til plassen.

KyotoLefty (6569) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 13, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2013 Cask at Fontainas. Deep, glowing orange-gold, tall, fime head. Lemon and grapefruit zest, leather, horse blanket nose. Biting sour and funk, grapefuit, leather, dust. Funky ass. Tiny sweetness. Rather unforgiving, clean, teeth stripping. Astringent and a bit too raunchy.
