RATINGS: 231   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.71   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".

neongolden (774) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
(18mo from ceramic jug at the brewery, July 25 2015) Pours slightly hazy medium gold with no head. Aroma has tart crabapple, cider and white wine vinegar, wet basement and mulch, some wood, old hops come through a bit with hay. On the palate, moderately acetic, apple vinegar and skin, a little citrus, maybe underripe peaches, oak fairly prominent towards the finish. There are dried leaves in the finish, softly medicinal, funk is dry and dusty. Aftertaste dry and lightly bitter, light bodied. Pretty damn drinkable unblended lambic, maybe a bit more time to get woody would be nice. Think I actually prefer it to the regular gueuze though, in small pours.

Cunningham (5672) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2015
Nice really golden color. Bubbly white head that soon vanish. Funky tart green apples, some vinegar and oak in the aroma. Medium body and a quite flat carbonation. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity. Sour tart green apples, fruity, vinegar and oak in the flavor. Not the best from this brewery, but quite nice a summer evening.
[Bottle (16 months) from a trade with Martinus]

Poured from a jug at the end of the Cantillon tour in Brussels. Hazy Gold with no trace of head. Sour aroma of festering spilled wine. Lemony sour with nae sweetness and puckering acidity. Very dry and refreshing. Just what I wanted after the tour.
