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 (1224) - 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 itís more unripe fruit maybe apples and gooseberries? Anyway, felt hugely complex and tasty, way better than I had expected.

gyllenbock (4864) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2014
From the jug at Cantillon in October 2014. Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of funk, some green apples, lemon, light vinegar and wood. The body was light and the finish dry. It was interesting to try such a young and very fresh Cantillon at the Brewery.

DSG (6106) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 12, 2014
[9/27/14] Jug sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2014 in Bodegraven. Hazy golden. Funky aroma with barnyard, sweat, fruits and a bit of floral notes. Sourish funky flavor with barnyard, oak and some citrus. Flat mouthfeel. Great and refreshing.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Smells of vinegar with hints of apples and white wine. The taste is at first an acid kick, followed by a delayed fizzy explosion. Exciting, very unfamiliar. Hard to judge beers in this genre.

Borefts Bier Festival 2014. Unclear orange body with no head. Aroma is tart and sour, apples, vinegar. Taste of grapes, dry white wine, leather, acidic finish. Highly acidic. Not one to replace your daily lambic, but Iím really excited to have tasted it.
