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".

ctipping (1346) - Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2015
1, 2, and 3 year lambic poured from boxes. 1 year is much paler than 2 and 3 year. No head. 1 year is soft and almost sweet smelling. Straw and wheat. Low acidity. 2 year smells almost vinegary and oaky. 3 year is extremely oaky and yogurty. Tastes are dramatically different as well. 1 year has some sweetness with straw and grain. 2 year is extremely sour. 3 year is an incredibly complex lambic. Oak is prevalent. Moderate acidity, but less than I expected. Funky and yogurty tartness. All are flat and medium light in body. Fantastic experience to try these three components next to the gueuze they are blended into. They are interesting to taste, but the refinement of the gueuze they become belies their abrasive characteristics.

Straw yellow pour. No carbonation. Some lacing. Lemon peel and white wine grape tartness. Aroma had lemon and oak. Nice lambic but not too sour. Mellow in comparison. Very nice drinker with the tart and barnyard. Very nice.

PhillyCraft (5752) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Cask at the source. Brown orange color without much carbonation. Watery and bland flavor profile with wet oak, basement funk, and light leather being noticed. A touch sweet. This was the 18 month old jawn I reckon.

From bottle (I think) at GBBF. Thanks! Hazy orange, still, no real head. Aroma is dirty and lemony, dried apricots, tangy sourness. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is apples, lemon, dry and sour, punchy sourness with a tangy, boozey, harsh finish. Bit acidic for me.

Cantillon lambik on tap at Moeder it was a fairly clear gold with a soapy white head. The taste was sharply sour and metallic giving me lemon tartness in the finish but I felt it needed more age. Jonge 3 while a few days later at the brewery I had the 18 month old version - it was way way better. It was a bright clear gold. The taste was lightly tart with a bit of the horsey Brett. Oude 3.9
