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".

Leighton (13979) - London, Greater London, - OCT 8, 2012
Keg at CPK, London. Two-year old version. Pours clear gold, no head. Good tangy nose, hints of butter, bread, grass. Light sweet with some sturdy sourness, light apples, grass, light tangy fruits. Light bodied with very, very fine carbonation- it’s almost flat. Very clean, tangy finish, some mild tart berries, light grassy hops. It’s a tasty well nuanced beer. I actually don’t get much the distinctive, grassy/earthy Cantillon character, but it’s still good stuff.

Cunningham (5636) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2015
Nice really golden color. Bubbly white head that soon vanish. Funky tart green apples, some vinegar and oak in the aroma. Medium body and a quite flat carbonation. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity. Sour tart green apples, fruity, vinegar and oak in the flavor. Not the best from this brewery, but quite nice a summer evening.
[Bottle (16 months) from a trade with Martinus]

Poured from a jug at the end of the Cantillon tour in Brussels. Hazy Gold with no trace of head. Sour aroma of festering spilled wine. Lemony sour with nae sweetness and puckering acidity. Very dry and refreshing. Just what I wanted after the tour.

ineedbeer (1221) - 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.
