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

ansalon (2779) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2016
Tasting at Cantillon. Pours a clear orange with no head. Aromas of funk, cellar, soil, floral and herbal notes. Taste is funky and earthy and slightly floral. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with no carbonation. Very good!

PotjeBier (2625) - 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.

Pues probé esto en la visita a la fábrica de cantillon en Bruselas. Es increíble, parece un mosto o sidra, su gran complejidad, acidez y ligereza hacen que esta sea una de las cervezas más delicadas que he probado y además sea muy muy bebible.

18 months. A little flat in my opinion - though I had it right after a much stronger tasting beer, so perhaps it was just flat in comparision. Decent funky smell.

Unclear light orange gold. No head. No carbonation. Light body. Moderate sour. Dry. Dusty. Cowwebby. Woody. Lemon. Well crafted as you’d expect.

Gold, orange colored body. Very nice mouthfeel. Less complexity than the regular gueze but a great beer to drink.

Beer5000 (5824) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2016
Sampled at the brewery May 2016. Unclear golden orange body, practically without any head. Aroma is funky, fruity and acidic with a little apple cider in it. Flavor is sour and acidic with some fruit, wood and Brett. It’s surprisingly smooth and rather less acidic and sour than the Geuze, this goes for the complexity as well, pretty straight forward without the depth and richness from a Geuze. At the same time you can detect the basic elements and knowing your Geuze it’s interesting to sample the basic ingredients. Also a big plus to sample this at the brewery. This is highly enjoyable, but to be honest, if someone just poured this into my glass as an apple cider or something the score would probably be a bit lower. Honesty is crap sometimes.

bartlebier (3306) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 27, 2016
Hand-pumped and foam-vaporised full draughts at Moeder Lambiek 2015 and 2016-IV, 12m-18m. - Pumped clear golden yellow and foamy (!). Lovely cheesy lemon balm and grapefruit juice in aroma, pierced by soft white balsamico sulphurs, white peach and lemon. Taste develops into sweeter lemon juice with old cheesy citrus rind from the old hops, then must throwing a dusty, slightly sulphuric wet blanket over all that, leaving on a pure lemon juice prickle in the throat. - Not quite as meaty, oily and complex as my all-time favourite G.

Przeklejka wyjazdowa, pite w browarze: Unblended Lambic (2015) 16 months old
Brasserie Cantillon Mega wytrawne, malo kwasne, ciekawie owocowe, po ogrzaniu milo dzikawe

PS: jako kwachowy abnegat, jestem w szoku, ze taki swiezy, unblended, jest dla mnie fajniejszy niz te wszystkie lezaki, cuda niewidy :)
