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".

From tap at the brewery. Pours slight hazy/cloudy and golden orange with a huge, bubbly and white head - slowly diminishing. Aroma is tart barnyard, light winegrape fruity. Bitter and light acidic flavoured, vague sweetness beneath. Subdued malt note and a mild dry brett to tart pedicoccus acdity into the finish. Smooth fruity and tart far finish. Nice one.

Draught. Hazy orange colour, minor head. Aroma is smooth wood. Flavour is wood,some sourness and slight notes of sweet grass. A very "smooth" lambic by Cantillon. Was one of my favourite lambics tested at the weekend of spontaneous fermentation.

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.

Travlr (22072) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Draught at Moeder Lambic. Aged under 12 months and described by the owner as a jonge. Cear deep yelow color, small fluffy white head that settles slowly to an edge. Aroma of malt and wheat. Taste is bright, slight citrus. Nice character. Lacks the deep sourness and acidity of the oude version we tasted at the brewery that same morning.

fiulijn (19647) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2012
Draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 4% ABV
Hazy golden color, with large compact head. Strong aroma, moderate cellar character, pungent, indeed reminiscent of the Cantillon Faro. Smooth mouthfeel, dry, with delicate malt flavor, delicate lemony acidity, and a very nice pungent character from the Bretts, ending in a rather dry and astringent final.
Dynamic, pungent, light; excellent.
