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".

draft at Moeder... I couldn’t really tell much of a difference with this young lambic, it was good, not super complex, needs more time

Borefts 2014. Poured dark golden with no head. Aroma of tart fruit. Medium body, quite zesty, flavour is tart and quite sweet, pretty smooth.

erickok (3629) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 30, 2014
There was some confusion over where to rate this, but I think it’s right here. It’s Bruocsella with a different aging, as I was told. Anyway. Served headless, orange body. Aged, woody, dusty, refined, soft malts, barn. Sot sourness, too mellow for my taste buds. Good but doesn’t live up to the hype I think. Not for me at least. (On tap at Borefts 2014)

Borresteijn (4731) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2014
At Borefts ’14. Clear golden colour, no head. Aroma of light oxidization, tart, citrus, lemons, some funk. Flavour is light floral, funky, tart, slightly oxidized, sour finish. Light-bodied. Not for me.

MarcoDL (2226) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle @ Borefts 2014. Copper colored, with no head. Intense sour taste, very tardy, the term horseblanket is appropriate. Bit earthy as well. Great lambic.

Bozo_skeleton (507) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 26, 2014
@ Brasserie Cantillon - 18 mois d’age. Blonde doree sans carbonation ni collet. Des aromes aigres et vineux. Le vin d’orge par excellence, pas de petillement en bouche, le cote aigre qui ressort pas mal (il faut etre habitue...), notes boises. Interressant mais c’est tout de meme pas ma tasse de the

18 month old I blended Lambic at Cantillon brewery with Kimberly and Taylor. Aroma is young cantillon funk, a little empty compared to the oude Gueuze. Taste is not as dry as most all other cantillon, and a little watery, wheat notes still present. Almost zero acidity. I could pound this all day, easy. Love.
