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".

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.

This was dry and pretty clear, but the horse blanket was there. Quite tasty and a real pleasure. Thanks.

Sampled at Cantillon Brewery. Golden, flat, a bit hazy. Lots of Brettanomyces notes in aroma, fruits, white wine. Moderately sour, fruity, vinous, hints of astringent bitterness. Very good.

ctipping (713) - 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.
