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 (13019) - 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- itís almost flat. Very clean, tangy finish, some mild tart berries, light grassy hops. Itís a tasty well nuanced beer. I actually donít get much the distinctive, grassy/earthy Cantillon character, but itís still good stuff.

Glass at the brewery. Pours clear gold with small, fizzy edge bubbles. Aroma is earthy, farmhouse, and lactic bacteria with stale hops, lemon notes and an old oak character. Flavor is tart and puckering lemon and lactic acidity, oak, stale hops and a dry finish. Light body and nearly still.

Gold, slightly cloudy pour with no head or fizz. Winey, funky, barnyard aromas. Taste is winey, sour. Call me a bloody savage but itís just not my cup of tea.

fellebag (1036) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2014
Glass at brewery. One year old blend. Flat head, quite hazy. Aroma is straw, citrus and light of wood. Gives a checimal feeling in the mouth, leaving a layer for a second. Taste is sour with a sense of nail polish.
