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".

Bozo_skeleton (686) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 26, 2014
@ Brasserie Cantillon - 18 mois d’age. Blonde doree sans carbonation ni collet. Des aromes aigres et vineux. Le vin d’orge par excellence, pas de petillement en bouche, le cote aigre qui ressort pas mal (il faut etre habitue...), notes boises. Interressant mais c’est tout de meme pas ma tasse de the

Experiment_Ale (1083) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2014
18 month old I blended Lambic at Cantillon brewery with Kimberly and Taylor. Aroma is young cantillon funk, a little empty compared to the oude Gueuze. Taste is not as dry as most all other cantillon, and a little watery, wheat notes still present. Almost zero acidity. I could pound this all day, easy. Love.
