Unlike many other unblended oude lambik, there exists both draft and bottled versions of De Cam Oude Lambiek.

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".

Many thanks to Rian for sharing this 2009 Bottle. Nice tart sourish nose. The beer starts mild sourish, fresh and smooth. The acidity is moderate, the body is soft. The aftertaste has some horse blanket there, very soft mild sour. Great fresh fruity hints, nice and round. Fantastic mild sourish flavour with woody hints.

thellgren (456) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2015
0.75 l bottle @ One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Quite sour, burns your throat. But that’s what I like. More refreshing than hoppy ale which just makes you to more thirsty. Hard to tell if this more or less sour than Cantillon’s unblended lambic.

bytemesis (4593) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle, 2009 -thanks _angst_! Pours clear golden orange, really no head or lacing; a few bubbles perhaps. Aroma is funky, lots of wet basement, horse blanket, some cheese, oak tannins, a bit of fruitiness. Flavor is light tart, medium funky, a hint of fruity sweetness remains. Lots of horseblanket funk on top of oak and a hint of mushroom. Medium body, flat as a board. Pretty solid Gueuze overall.

tricksta_p (1944) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
Aroma of sour fruits, apples, peach, orange, vinegar, some barnyard funk. Flavour is sour and tart with just a hint of sweetness on the tongue. Surprisingly fruity and rather refreshing, an excellent Lambic.

ElManana (1086) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2015
Draft at De Cam. Nice bitterness, lemon, tart. AWESOME. Had this later on in the Volkscafé De Cam, and was much less impressed by it then. Did they add something or was it just a different barrel? I’ll score the version I had at the source itself.
