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".

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 Tap (TapTap, Tallinn) (7:3:6:4-12=3.2)
Very nice gentle sour, grungy-funky aroma, some sweetness clearly there. Hazy gold, next to no head. Slightly bitter, flat, and lambicky in the mouth, missing any wheat influence, and a bit sweet. Strange phenolic or chlorophenolic aspects detract. Finish does have a pleasant drying barky bitterness, even some grassier aspects. Odd one, and supports my view that Cantillon is almost always far superior in bottle.

thejackpacker (730) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2017
Jar at the brewery. Maybe I got the name of this one wrong but this it the young lambic, the base for all the other beers. I wasn’t a big fan to be honest. It smells as one would imagine, slight wee colour to it and it just felt a bit weak with a strong iron/ blood feelings in the mouth.

3.3
MartyW (415) - DENMARK - MAY 26, 2017
Cask. Moderate funk, light cheesy, light barley. Taste is the same. Light sourness. Good, but nothing noteworthy compared to the mature versions.

3.5
rayaron (2073) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAY 15, 2017
Draught at Cantillon Brewery, Brussels. Golden with no head. The aroma has notes of yeasts, wood, vegetables, vinegar and some fruitiness. Sour flavor with notes of lemon, wood, some fruitiness, white wine, bitterish, lemon zest. Watery, slightly dry, light-bodied. A bit aggressive but nice.
