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".

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, doesn’t stick around too long tho. M - Light with very light carbonation. Its has a tart feel but it does’t 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.

Frisch vom Hahn im Protokoll. Fast klares Altgold ohne Schaum. Karbonisation geht gegen 0. Anklänge von Scheuerlappen. Es gibt Besseres.

huineman (726) - 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.

On tap at Garage Project Wild Workshop. Pours bright gold. Pear, lemon, grapefruit peel, biscuit, touch of toffee, farmyard finish. Nice carbonation. Good.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2017 Jeg er ked af, at mine ølsmagsløg ikke er ordentlig udviklede. Rå lambik synes jeg bare ikke særlig godt om.

homeini (299) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 17, 2017
Pite na miejscu w browarze. Próbka młodego 18 miesięcznego lambika. Kwaśne, orzeźwiające, czuć dzikie drożdże, jest stajnia, ale brak beczki i zbyt przypomina białe wino.

MartyW (282) - DENMARK - MAY 26, 2017
18 month lambic directly from the barrel at Cantillon. Dusty, barnyard, funky barley. Taste is dusty barley turning to roasty oak. Tart finish. Good
