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".

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

Beer5000 (6269) - 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. Its 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 its 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 (3771) - 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.

Brasserie CantillonMega 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 :)

jinroh (1378) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2016
Sample at brewerys tasting room. Pours pale, light and not much foam. Aroma has some autumn funk going on, not that sour. Tastes also nicely smooth, some funk and a bit of sour. Sipped this one for quite long, nice and enjoyable when maybe simple lambic. Basic and solid.

Sampled at Cantillon Brewery. Golden, flat, a bit hazy. Lots of Brettanomyces notes in aroma, fruits, white wine. Moderately sour, fruity, vinous, hints of astringent bitterness. Very good.
