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".

Served on cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. My server told me this was a 2 year old lambic. Two fingers of frothy white head, cloudy orange/yellow in color, good head persistence. Nose is lemon rind, very funky, basement must Taste is subdued lemon tartness, stone fruit, light yogurt. This is a lot more mellow than the gueuze (which my wife was trying while i drank this). Crazy crushable. Light, velvety mouthfeel, light acidity, general lack of carbonation, and a moderate finish. I plan on drinking a lot more of this this trip. Great sessionable lambic.
