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".

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2012
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels, 22 July 2012) Deep golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, acidic nose with unripe green grapes, grapefruit, citrus, cellar and stable. Malty, tart taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, green grapes, bready malt and a lasting acidity in a dry, tart finish. Medium body, dry. A bit harsh and unrefined, but a very nice lambic.

adnielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Tap @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy pinkish golden appearance with a cream white head. Fairly spicy, lightly funky, basement, mild cheesy, earthy/grassy, lemon, lightly tart aroma. Quite cheesy, parmesan, tangy lemon, light vanilla, woody, spritzy, refreshing flavor. Tart, cheesy, lemon finish. Very refreshing and super easy to drink.

Jayb0 (1022) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Draught at Moeder Lambic (Fontainas) . The head gives away its youth but the complexity is already taking shape. Fresh, light, lemony acidity but still some musty funk. A great way to start an evening.

tkrjukoff (4030) - SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2012
Tao at The Craft Beer Co. Pours cloudy orange amber with a nice creamy beige head leaving lace. Aroma is fruity stable cellarand dry and sour. Flavor is very nice; sour vinegar in front, middle brings forward the fruitynesss stable and some bitterness while the sourness mates with the other flavors turning to almost sweet towards the end while mixing with the saliva gushing from my cheeks. Finishes bitter and sour tart.

CanIHave4Beers (3210) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 21, 2012
The first beer I ordered in Belgium. On draught at Moeder Lambic (Fontainas)

Pours a sunny yellow color, hazy, with a big very loose rocky head.

The aroma is lemony, kind of clean (at least for my experiences with Lambic up till the moment that I took these notes). The beer has some nice hay notes and a mild kind of barn-yardiness.

The flavor is lemony & yogurty, a mild lactic sourness is present and the beer is very earthy. It’s simple but still very good and enjoyable.

Quite refreshing.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2012
On draught at Cantillon. Pours a dark golden colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of lemon, horse blanket, wet cardboard and oak. Similar flavours and mildly tart with very low carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Quite dry to finish. Very nice.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 16, 2012
16/05/2012 Open Baladin Roma (handpump). Dorata, abbastanza torbida, lievissima schiuma poco persistente. Al naso lieviti selvatici, sentori di stalla, muffa e cantina, intenso agrumato con note citriche. In bocca è acida, decisa, lievemente più morbida della geuze, ma anche più lineare, semplice, manca un po’ di secchezza nel finale. Corpo medio-basso, leggermente watery, carbonazione quasi assente. Ok.

Cask at Moeder Lambic St Gilles few weeks ago from notes. I asked the owner, this is the fresh stuff. Pours golden with a small white head. Nose is earthy. Lots of old barn fragrances. Grass, hay, etc. A little funk but not much yet. Flavor is more bitter and sweet, with a tad sour. Mouthfeel is tight and crisp. Clean. Nice to get to try this early.
