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".

At Cantillon brewery. Really cool thing to try not as good as expected. But very cool.

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 (6704) - 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.

lusikka (6525) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Jar @ the brewery, Brussels. 5 months old. Rated on 28.2.2013.
Had this after the brewery tour. Pours a cloudy yellow colour and a white foamy head. Aroma of very raw and pungent lemon zest, grapefruit and surprisingly strong grassy notes. Flavour is also very raw and citrusy with even stronger grapefruiity notes, white grapes, grass and lactic acid. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a sharp, citrusy, bitter finish. Raw and aggressive as expected.

At the brewery. Almost clear golden liquid with minimal white head. Aroma of lemons, grain, apples, barnyard and minerals. Taste is dry and light to medium sour with notes of lemons, apples and funk. Light to medium bodied with no carbonation. Nice.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Glass @ Cantillon from a pitcher. Hazy light amber served still with just some small bubbles around the edge of the glass. Aroma is musty barnyard, damp earthy oak, vinegar and some bitter citrus peel. Flavor is super tart, sour and acidic with a tiny amount of malt sweetness and bitterness. Light body and no carbonation. Very odd beer, served room temperature and still takes a bit of getting used to.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, pours a cloudy yellow with a fairly large white head. Aroma of mild barnyard funk, a little citrus zest and some moderate horse blanket. Flavour is very citric, sour and also incredibly bitter, with loads of dry citrus zest, incredibly potent mouth-drying hops, and mild funk. One of the most bitter lambics I’ve had. Finishes dry, citric and bitter. Good stuff, but not among my favourite Cantillons.

Provata dalla brocca direttamente in birreria alla cantillon. Chiara, trasparente, senza schiuma. Molto acida e già discreto corpo... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iFox

PriorL (1989) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Sample at Cantillon brewery. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: clear blonde beer, no foam, no carbonation. Nose: oranges, pineapples, apple, grains are very prominent, barnyard, rather sweet as well though. Taste: starts rather fruity but goes very dry afterwards. Very bitter, lots of grains. It has a large dry out effect, it’s somewhat sour but compensated nicely with the amount of sugar remaining in this beer. Altogether a very nice drinking beer with a balance between sourness and sweetness.
