RATINGS: 187   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.73/5   EST. CALORIES: 150   ABV: 5%
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".

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.

cask at Chez Moeder Lambic - Hazy gold pour with a big, rapidly fading head. It has the characteristic soft carbonation of a cask ale. It has a very tart and funky aroma and taste. Light sweetness. Interesting and good.

Sampled at various occasions at the brewery and elsewhere. Shady golden, low to medium white head. Fruity, mellow, some wood, a few times with a slightly disturbing rubber note. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Semi dry, medium acidity.
