RATINGS: 34   MEAN: 3.61/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.54/5   ABV: -
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".

Pours a hazy golden orange from the clay serving vessel with minimal to no head or lace. Aroma of funky barnyard brettanomyces and sweet maltiness. Taste follows, hints of light fruitiness, bit of light oak. A little sweet, but that’s to be expected. Awesome, can see why the blend is so good.

@ Volkscafé De Cam, Gooik. Golden apple juice colour, no foam, no carbonation. Funky, barnyard, lemon. Notes of apple cider. Very well balanced. Refreshing. Nice lambic!

[9/20/15] Oak barrel sample at the blendery in Gooik. Hazy golden. Great funky aroma full of cobwebs, tons of oak, and some fruitiness. Sourish and slightly sweetish flavor, citric, oaky, with a bit of malt. Quite light-bodied. Great and refreshing.

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.
