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".

JorgeLee (1463) - Greater London, - FEB 11, 2013
From cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Bright and hazy orange with a big white head. Quite rich, extremely tart, leaves some dryness in the finish. My taste vocabulary struggles a bit with lambics as the tartness seems to dominate - I guess in this one being young it’s more unripe fruit maybe apples and gooseberries? Anyway, felt hugely complex and tasty, way better than I had expected.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3347) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 26, 2015
Cantillon lambik on tap at Moeder it was a fairly clear gold with a soapy white head. The taste was sharply sour and metallic giving me lemon tartness in the finish but I felt it needed more age. Jonge 3 while a few days later at the brewery I had the 18 month old version - it was way way better. It was a bright clear gold. The taste was lightly tart with a bit of the horsey Brett. Oude 3.9

ChtiBreizh (225) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 5, 2015
Tasting at the Cantillon Brewery. Golden with no head. Cider-like, sour apples, barnyard. Medium to low sweet at first then tart but controlled sourness for lambic. Flat, oily, medium body.

laiti (7645) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Draught @ Lambic Foeder. Vintage 2014. Rated on 25.06.2015
Aroma has grapefruit and earthy tones. Flavour has strong orange, some milky notes, grapefruit and citrus. Clearly has not yet reached the full sourness level but still enjoyable.

KEg at the 24th Weekend Of Spontaneous Fermentation then again at Cantillon. Cloudy Irn Bru looking pour with no head. Citrus zest and farmyard funk. There’s a decent, tart wedge of lemon. Dusty farmyard funk. Delicious.

Somewhat hazed yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma is grainy and just mildly funky. Some tartness, but never really gets sour. Medium body and medium carbonation.

MarkoNm (1746) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 5, 2015
At the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, a bit pale. No head to speak of, very flat. Cellar, earthy aroma, barnyard with cider-feel to it. Grapes. Taste mildly sweet with moderate soury feel in continuation. A pretty nice one.
