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 "De Cam Oude Lambiek" and anything less than 6 months-old under "De Cam Jonge Lambiek".

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".

Sample from draft at ZBF. The brewer told me he thought his draft lambic at the festival was to youngh to serve. So this rating should be right here. Poured a deep darker yellow golden colour with Some white bubbles on top. Pretty flat like a pancake. Old rotten apples, grains, dust, sour grapes, vinegar, oak, getting Some vanilla aswell, Peach, lemon, horseblanket, tart, bit flat in the taste. Was indeed a bit to young to serve.

The ’raw material’ of the De Cam products, available from tap in their pub and given in stone jars, as was custom for flat lambic two centuries ago. Made from wort coming from Girardin and 3 Fonteinen, apparently. A refreshing, fruity lambic, obviously without head or carbonation, with spicy and milky notes and bitter, thirst-quenching finish. It’s a shame flat lambic has been reduced to folklore and has to be artificially kept alive, I could have this - or any other one - any day.

At WE of Spontaneous Fermentation 2014. Slightly hazy bright golden with no head and no lacing. Aoma is a little cheesy with light funk, hay and mineral notes. Taste is grassy and a little cheesy with hay and light funk. Light body. A tad watery. Slightly dry finish. Probably the softest unblended lambic I have tried yet. Super drinkable.

On cask at WoSF 2014. Clear flat gold pour. Cheesy aroma, wet grain, wet hay, bready notes. Doughy, grassy flavor, light funk, quite low acidity. Medium palate, slightly sweet. Pretty easy drinking.

bartlebier (2483) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
Taster during TdG 2013 @De Cam. Tart green apple, fresh lemon and some cheesy notes on straw-dry palate. Unpresuming and spot-on for what it is, considering what it will become.

PriorL (2490) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2013
Taster at "Volkscafé De Cam", shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, flat. NOSE: grains, little hop, horseblanket, hay, grass. TASTE: sweet, syrupy, not really sour, like watered down a little? Not that good.

brokensail (12508) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Flat golden orange pour with no head or carbonation. Really an awful nose. Bile, cheese, and butter are the main aromas. A light lemon tartness and some barnyard funk notes. The taste isn’t much better. Lots of butter and cheese notes, some mild lactic sourness, and grass. A bit of earth and barnyard funk in the background.

cpetrone84 (1661) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Pour is pale and hazy yellow with no head. Nose is faint with notes of lemon juice and a fresh sock like funk. It taste is a bit messy, light lemon juice and musky cellar mildew. Flabby integration on a light body, low carbonation.
