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 (1758) - 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.

On cask at Moeder. Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma is really woody and rustic with some fermented fruits on top. Taste starts tart, bitter and woody and lingers on the aftertaste with bitter wood flavor. It has some funk but mostly you get the spicy wood flavors. Body is quite light and almost flat. It’s a very different lambic from what I had from bottles. The lack of carbonation makes it really easy to drink and the cask notes really shine through.

A glass from the barrel at Cantillon. Aroma of hops (hallertau) and yeast; Brett. with notes of Wood and basement. The flavour is moderat sour and dry. The body is light and the texture is watery. A world class experience...
