RATINGS: 194   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.72/5   EST. CALORIES: 150   ABV: 5%
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".

From the brewery. Was described as "less than a year old". Everything about this had not settled, as it was clearly young. As part if the tour tasting, they give you this first to test your palate to see if you should even request a second (different) beer. Good idea, as this saves the good stuff for the rest of us. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at moeder. Pours a clear golden orange from the cask with fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to leave light lace. Aroma of big funky notes and a hint of sweetness. Taste follows, clean and funky, really nice.

GBBF Day 4. Keg. Hazy gold beer, not much of a head. Palate is light, dry and has mild crispness. Mildly tart with ripe lemon and orange. Touch of wet wood. Some floral character before a light dry finish. Pretty mellow and quite drinkable but for the life of me I dont get all these stratospheric scores for this beer.

ciocanelu (1825) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 3, 2016
On cask at Moeder. Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma is really woody and rustic with some fermented fruits on top. Taste starts tart, bitter and woody and lingers on the aftertaste with bitter wood flavor. It has some funk but mostly you get the spicy wood flavors. Body is quite light and almost flat. Its a very different lambic from what I had from bottles. The lack of carbonation makes it really easy to drink and the cask notes really shine through.

ASPETTO: oro antico quasi limpido, schiuma assente. AROMA: acido, abbondante vinoso (vino bianco fruttato), floreale. GUSTO: acido, marcio (soprattutto nel retrogusto), citrico, vinoso. Retrogusto marcio, polveroso e si sente anche il fresco del limone.
