RATINGS: 230   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".

fellebag (1138) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2014
Glass at brewery. One year old blend. Flat head, quite hazy. Aroma is straw, citrus and light of wood. Gives a checimal feeling in the mouth, leaving a layer for a second. Taste is sour with a sense of nail polish.

erickok (4302) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 30, 2014
There was some confusion over where to rate this, but I think it’s right here. It’s Bruocsella with a different aging, as I was told. Anyway. Served headless, orange body. Aged, woody, dusty, refined, soft malts, barn. Sot sourness, too mellow for my taste buds. Good but doesn’t live up to the hype I think. Not for me at least. (On tap at Borefts 2014)

Bottle @ Borefts 2014. Copper colored, with no head. Intense sour taste, very tardy, the term horseblanket is appropriate. Bit earthy as well. Great lambic.
