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".

@ BBF 14. Pours hazy golden with a very tiny white head. Aroma is very rural with lots of musty oak, stable, a gentle tartness, floral notes and kinda clean overall. Smells young bro! Taste is tart and soft with notes of horse blanket, sweet moldy oak, lemon, vinegar and pretty easy drinking.

sampled @ Borefts Beer Festival 2014: trübes orangegelbes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch nach reifen Früchten, holzig, würzig. Geschmack säuerlich, fruchtig, hefig, holzig, trocken.

Poured from a jug at Borefts 2014. Pours very hazy golden orange with a ring off white head. Aroma of light funk, citrus, fruits and barnyard. Flavour is light sweet and light moderate acidic. Medium bodied with flat carbonation.

Borefts. Beautiful light orange brown with only some bubbles but no real head. Dry grains, funk, hay, light sour with big vegetal bitter finish. Quite nice.

Straight from the jug at the brewery.

Pours flat, orange/yellow/rusty in color, bubbles on top. Nose is tons funk, light acidity, and oak. Flavor is very similar to the nose, but slightly more funky and a little less acidic. Light body, flat, dry funky finish.

Really enjoyed trying this super-fresh sample a the brewery and is pretty cool to see a part of the final product of Classic Geuze.

Boy I love this brewery. This brew is fantastic. Big sour mellon aroma...so great you can get this without the usuall carbonation of other beers. *our mostly flat with a 1/16 inch head that died fast. Tasted acid lemon and slight ;peach. Great dry finish leaving you wanting so much more.

Alengrin (3884) - BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
Tasted at the brewery and at Weekend der Spontane Gisting. This is the raw material from which all Cantillon’s wonderful lambic variations are derived. Hazy golden blonde, no head as expected, no carbonation. Complex funky aroma, barnyard, lots of fresh, sharp citric and mellow lactic acidity, and all the estery wild yeast fruitiness you can find in the Cantillon products. I recommend anyone into old geuze to taste the pure, unblended lambics of the producers in order to fully understand them.

poech73 (319) - Braine, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2014
Sample@Quintessence 2014. Se distingue par un abord doux, léger et aérien avec une acidité fine mais moyennement longue et savoureuse. Le nez est fort fruité, peu acide presque sans amertume. Le corps malté est doux et rond, fromenté, fruité, citronné (raisin, pomme) moyen se finissant avec une amertume minérale. Certainement moins lourde à boire qu’une gueuze. Bien

6 month sample at the brewery. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with no head at all. The beer is still. Aromas of mild citrus, earth tones, clay, acid. Taste is sour, acidic. Mouthfeel is light due to a lack of carbonation.
