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".

orangesol (987) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Served on-tap at Churchkey on Zwanze day 2012. A - Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a small half finger tall bubbly white head, dissipating down to nothing at all, leaving no lace at all down the glass. S - Smell is pretty muted until it fully warms up. Hints of funky cheese, damp oak, basement must, some lemon zest and a dash of vinegar. T - Starts off with a big sour kick that fades as quickly as it hit you leaving behind hints of lemon zest, musty funk, dry oak and a dash of booze burn. Finish is funky with a moderate amount of dryness, doesnt stick around too long tho. M - Light with very light carbonation. Its has a tart feel but it doest linger for very long, allowing it to be consumed quite easily. O - I feel like this is exactly what an unblended two year old lambic should taste. Sure its a little rough around the edges, but thats why its perfect for blending and fruit additions. I am glad I got to try this, I look forward to having it again one day, hopefully a little closer to the source.

phaleslu (9788) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Pour from a bag in a box (!) at the Shelton Brothers Festival. Labeled as "2-year classic maturation lambic aged in sixth-use barrels" on the festival list, and "lambic 2 years old classic maturation" at the table. So thats what this version was, two-year-old lambic. It pours a clearer gold than the Armagnac and Meursault barrel-aged ones, but also with no head. Notes of lemon, lime, grass, grapes, leaves, herbs, oak, cheesecloth, faint sulphurs, and dry grains. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a dry, tart, kind of bitter mouthfeel. Id put this as my second favorite of the three. Interesting stuff.

Saeglopur (1931) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 1, 2016
2 year old draught at Tribaun, Innsbruck.
Dark golden, moderate hazy body, with a tiny head.
Tart aroma of funk, horse blanket, unripe pears, leather, sour citrus, green apples, cheese, barrel.
Taste follows this pretty much, also tart and dry.
Light, slick mouthfeel, with a low carbonation.
Finishes sour, tart, dry, with pears, wood, apples, leather, funk.

Nice one. Really sour and dry, with a lot of aged character. Im just missing some carbonation, feels quite flat in the mouth. Overall interesting stuff, while not among my favourite Cantillons.
