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".

Decent lambic with a pleasing sourness that is smooth and does not overwhelm.

Hansen (6199) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2011
Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. A real good lambic. Medium orange coloured, and hazy. Has a white head, fully lasting. Aroma of barnyard and something old. Flavor is starting light sweet, finish moderate acidic. Light bitter too. Dry texture, soft carbonation and a bit astringent.

Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours a slightly cloudy gold with an average size long-lasting frothy white head. Pleasant Lambic aroma -- yeast, wood, some sourness, fruit, citrus and more. Refreshing and delicious flavour is lightly tart and sour, a bit funky and citrusy along with some wood and a lovely finish that’s similar to eating a tasty piece of lemon. Medium bodied. Wow, so easy to drink and pleasant, what an awesome treat -- and on cask!

Very young sample on cask at the Cantillon Brewery and Museum during last week’s Belgium trip. Reviewed from notes. Served in a Cantillon big-bowl wine glass. Pours a clear bright orange color with just a few bubbles on top. No head or lacing at all. Pretty color though. The nose brings forward a light funky cheese along with a touch of lemon peel. The flavor goes more toward the cheese with a bit of a blue-cheese character and light acidity. A slight lingering bitterness is present as well. Light body with no carbonation. Super thin. Light acidity. Very nice sipper. This was our first beer after getting off the plane and it did not disappoint. Great way to start the trip.

cask@Chez Moeder Lambic: hazy, light orange with a very persistent foamy white head, smell & taste is a bit fruity upfront with slightly sweet lemons, bit musty, oak, funky with clearly defined hop, followed by a dry medium acidity, creamy & round sourness, pretty much flat, amazing limbic, prefer it young

Non mi piace, troppo ruvido e selvaggio, preferisco di gran lunga altre produzioni, sia di Cantillon che di altri birrifici.

cask at moeder lambic. pours a dirty yellow with tan highlights just bellow the fizzy centimeter high offwhite head. aroma of dry bread, lemongrass, grapefruit, and wet socks. earthy, rustic wet dog, lemon, and stale wheat. low carbonation, as expected. complex, tasty, well made. great beer.

Tap @ the brewery.
Pours hazy orange with a small, bubbly rim of foam. Aroma is tart, citric, oranges, light apple. Low carbonation, good dry and light oily palate. Flavour is tart, citric, oranges. Rather elegant and very fresh with an okay and finely dry, oaky finish. Good, but I’d still rather have a Gueuze.
