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".

Fresh out of the barrel at the brewery so it’s definitely "jonge". You can tell the difference in one that’s aged...this is very cloudy, and while it’s tart the flavors are muddled and it doesn’t drink as easily. It’s particularly earthy and dry. Carbonation is non-existent.

MarkoNm (1138) - 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.

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 (393) - 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 (686) - 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.
