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

mateuszk (2158) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Sample @brewery. Pours slightly hazy yellow, no head. Funk, barnyard, light citric notes in aroma. Taste is lightly sweet at first, than citric and funky, not that much as in older ones. Medium body, quite dry, citric finish.

Saeglopur (1731) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 1, 2016
2 year old draught at Tribaun, Innsbruck.
Dark golden, moderate hazy body, with a tiny head.
Tart aroma of funk, horse blanket, unripe pears, leather, sour citrus, green apples, cheese, barrel.
Taste follows this pretty much, also tart and dry.
Light, slick mouthfeel, with a low carbonation.
Finishes sour, tart, dry, with pears, wood, apples, leather, funk.

Nice one. Really sour and dry, with a lot of aged character. I’m just missing some carbonation, feels quite flat in the mouth. Overall interesting stuff, while not among my favourite Cantillons.

davidezdonz (330) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - AUG 12, 2016
From the cask, aged 18 months. Tasted at the brewery, poured from a jug into a Cantillon tasting glass. It was a clear dark golden orange colour with no head and no lacing. Aromas were funky and sour with hints of wood and lemon. Tastes sour, tart and funky with a touch of hay and lemon zest. Light bodied with pretty much no carbonation. Overall quite nice, but I tend to prefer at least a bit of carbonation.

PotjeBier (2747) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2016
From small 5 liter boxes @ In De Wildeman. 1, 2 & 3 years old next to each other (from old to young). All: color is deep golden, hazy. No head. Aroma’s - 3 years: sour, wood, light funk, somewhat fruity? / 2 years: milder, less sour, light sweetness / 1 year: somewhat vegetal, sulphur. Retronasal - 3: sour, tart, wood, still rather mild, later a bit of cardboard / 2: some grain, sourish-sweetish / 1: sourish, light wood, soft. Flavor - 3: quite sour with light bitterness / 2 & 1: mmoderate sour, moderate bitter. All light bodied, 1 year was the only one with some carbonation. Finish is rather dry, tart, with some bitterness in 2 & 1. A blend of the 3 came out second, after 1 & 2, but the 3 year-old version stood out by far.
