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".

Lucky to try a handbottle from 98í (Thanks Cory!) as well as samples at the first Shelton Festival in Worcester.. Super translucent, cider in appearance. Heavy funk and moderate sourness, little to no head or lacing. Very palatable, refreshing and easy to drink- if a bit one dimensional (perhaps thatís the point!) Very cool to try this component of our favorite gueuze on its own, really helps pull together the bigger picture of how important the concept of blending is for gueuze. An isolated snapshot of a crucial moment in time for lambik.

Countbeer (5918) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2014
Draught: Served in a Cantillon shaker: No head, hazy orange colored beer. Aromas of horseblanket, wild yeast, some wood, some old flowers, hints of soap, hay and a sprinkle of something like honey. Flavours of light tart, grapes, wood, wild yeast, cheese, light white pepper touch, some smooth dryness, subtle bitterness, light herbs and a sprinkle of something malty... Aftertaste is tart with wood, cheese, wild yeast and grapes. No carbo, light watery mouthfeel and texture and a medium to full sublimely balanced body! Delicious!

dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 21, 2014
Poured from pitcher at the brewery. Pale yellow with almost no carbonation. Aroma is lemon, sour plum, grain, Brett, cider. Awesome. Taste is refreshing bitter lemons and minerality with a surprising full mouthfeel. Gulpable. Great.

culchiem (3378) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2014
At the brewery. Golden lemon with no head. Aroma is dry wheat. Flavour is sour fruit, really drys the back of the mouth. Lingering dry bitterness, some wood in the finish. Very dry.

ST247 (492) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2014
Sample thanks to 77ships. On draft @ít Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Pours cloudy orange. Very sour aroma. Taste sour, fruity balanced. Not my thing (yet).

tom10101 (4909) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 On tap @ La Fine Mousse (Paris). Listed as "Jeune Lambic - January 2012" and the appearence fits the criteria of Oude Lambik. Clear deep golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma is cheesy with a important apple presence and barnyard notes. Taste is acidic with apples, barnyard, cheesy notes, lemon and wood. Light to medium body. No carbonation. Woodsy and acidic finish. A tad acrid too. Not as good as the bottled Cantillon Iíve tried yet, but still very interesting to try. 8-3-8-4-15 Tried it again from cask at Cantillon (Bruxelles) - 1 year old - and it was not acrid at all, more lemony and more sharp. + 1 overall.

Douberd (4427) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2014
At the brewery. New style for me. Golden in colour with no head, no activity in it. Somehow it manages to look pretty. Aroma of sour grapes, apples, something else that I canít put my finger on. Very sour taste on my first big sip, softens later on. Again sour grapes, kind of wine-like taste, tart. Totally flat as far as carbonation is concerned, tart on the palate, thin body. Nice and thirst-quenching.

Sean9689 (285) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Originally sampled on 01-14-12. 1998 vintage...thanks, Cory!

Pours an amber color, no head, some bubbles here and there. Nose is funky, vinous, some citrus, malty. Flavor is lots of funk, ripe fruits, light tartness, and oak. Light body, no carbonation, dry tart finish.

A real treat with the age, but nothing to go too crazy over. I enjoyed my pour and I didnít really need anymore.
