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".

GTAEgeek (2333) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2017
Sample of 15 month lambic, poured from a jug at the brewery, after the tour. Pours a clear, golden color, with no head. The aroma is lemon peels, yogurt, leather and a bit of musty attic, and white bread. Off-dry flavor, with a bit of tartness and light funk. Medium body, with an acidic, thick feel, and no carbonation. This is a fun, and illuminating experience, but the beer itself isn't great. Flat, funky, and sharp.

Erzengel (9335) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2017
15 month old, at the brewery. Great woody beginning. Sessionable, smooth. Not too funky, fresh, not too sour. Very deep with fruity fresh parts, wood and horse blanket. Fantastic.

Mortlach (2490) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 23, 2017
On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Giallo antico, torbida, schiuma praticamente assente. Al naso sentori di pasta lievita, limone, mela grattugiata, stalla. In bocca è delicatamente acida, morbida, vinosa, leggermente tart. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Un po' timida.

4.3
huineman (728) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 12, 2017
Tasting at Cantillon of this Bruocsella-to-be, aged only 18 months, from a pitcher directly out of the barrel. Pours slightly cloudy pale golden, some green hues. No bubbles, no head. Aroma is quite high: honey, quince, peach, cider, green apple, candy, bread... Taste is bone-dry, zero carb. Pungent, sour (indeed), not a hint of bitterness. Long finish with hints of green chili pepper. Quite good, if you ask me.

3.9
explosivedog (1504) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 10, 2017
On tap at Garage Project Wild Workshop. Pours bright gold. Pear, lemon, grapefruit peel, biscuit, touch of toffee, farmyard finish. Nice carbonation. Good.
