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".

orangesol (968) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Served on-tap at Churchkey on Zwanze day 2012. A - Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a small half finger tall bubbly white head, dissipating down to nothing at all, leaving no lace at all down the glass. S - Smell is pretty muted until it fully warms up. Hints of funky cheese, damp oak, basement must, some lemon zest and a dash of vinegar. T - Starts off with a big sour kick that fades as quickly as it hit you leaving behind hints of lemon zest, musty funk, dry oak and a dash of booze burn. Finish is funky with a moderate amount of dryness, doesn’t stick around too long tho. M - Light with very light carbonation. Its has a tart feel but it does’t linger for very long, allowing it to be consumed quite easily. O - I feel like this is exactly what an unblended two year old lambic should taste. Sure its a little rough around the edges, but thats why its perfect for blending and fruit additions. I am glad I got to try this, I look forward to having it again one day, hopefully a little closer to the source.

ineedbeer (1162) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Poured at the WFB event. 4 years old. Aroma is very nice with a nice, earthy, herbal, funkiness. Acidity is soft with a bit of a cheesiness. Good oak character. Light citrus and tropical fruit. Some good stone fruit notes as well. A bit vinous. Pours a slightly hazy, golden orange with no head and no lacing. Faint legs. Flavor is fairly acidic with a nice earthy and slightly sharp acidity. Some herbal notes with quite a bit of oak. Faint tropical and stone fruit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with almost no carbonation. Low astringency and no alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice lambic with a lot of oak, but it also shows a bit of oxidation. Good, mellow acidity.

Over two years old, great lambic. Very sour, very complex nose and a long, long finish. Fantastic beer, one of the best geuzes around.
