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".

Dalla botte, bevuto alla Brasserie. Lambic di 4 mesi. aromi molto intensi, forse ancora un pò spigolosi. Molto presente il legno, il polveroso, la cantina e la rusticità Anche al palato si mantiene molto rustico ed intenso. Fantastico.

King_Alex_II (384) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Golden pale and a tiny bit cloudy color. The smell is a bit like old cheese. No carbonation and a lot of old cheese and a bit of horse stable. The aftertaste is not that overwhelming, still a very good lambic.

SinH4 (678) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Draught at Moeder Lambic. Golden color with inch thick head. A subtle Lambic funk, a bit of residual sugars, hay, wood, apples and lemony, dry finish. Flat. Good and interesting.

bartlebier (2420) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2015
Less than 1yo sold as young lambiek, from earthenware pitcher@source 02/2015. Flat, dank, mellifluous horsepiss of a semi-mature lemonade, laden with smooth residual sugars, old candied orange and graperuit zest while wandering wood tones lead the palate towards a quenching finish that hints at a second glass. Sweeter than some other jonge lambieks and quite round and harmonious. Pure unpasteurised young&wild goodness in a glass, - bottle this in a bag for everyday culinary use and watch the masses convert?
