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".

750 ml bottle courtesy of Secret santa. Thanks. Pours a cloudy amber color with minimal head that instantly vanishes away. Perhaps this is a Jonge Lambik. The aroma is disgusting with extra funky horse blanket, whores dirty sheets and some barnyard bouquet--very nice. The flavor, like the aroma, is overtly funky with overripe fruits, cider, spoiled tart green apples, bit of sugar, oak and cedar. The palate is full and smooth with very soft carbonation. Finishes long and tart. Overall: I loved this, funkiest beer I’ve had in a long time. Thanks Santa you clearly went above and beyond to get me this.

Lambik. Green apples, acetone, paint, cellar but also fruit and flowers. Almost no CO2 and foam. Interesting glass

0.75l, bottled February 2001, at Moeder Lambic. I was expecting a 2009, so a nice surprise (at least that’s what it says on the label, but it also says 37.5cl on the label :D). Hay, wood, not too intense. Smells pretty old. Taste is fruit, wood, barnyard and even a bit caramel. Full taste and flat carbonation. Fantastic.

Lagrad 3 år. Luktar grönmögelost och äppelcider. Ganska tunn i smaken. Tyvärr inte så intressant som jag hade hoppats. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (2715) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Bottled 2012, pours a clear gold with little to no head or lacing. Aroma of funky earth, musty barnyard, wet diaper in a good way. Taste follows, clean and dry, really nice. Would like more carbonation, but pretty damn nice.

Beerconnaiseur (155) - BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2015
Botled in 2009. Could be 10 or 11, as they use the same labels out of cost efficiency. Hazy golden pour with massive head. Quickly fading. Aromas are lively carbo, grain, barnyard, wort, wheat, vanilla. Flavours of vanilla, grains, almonds, cereal, caramel, sour aftertaste. Pretty sweet for an aged lambic! Perhaps too sweet to be complex.

3 jaar. (2009 37cl, som alltid med de Cam... Suck detta är en 75cl och årgång således nån gång efter 2009...) Kolsyra som en geuze. Drar parallellt mot Hanssen. Citrus. Funk. Frisk och härlig. Tunn och lättdrucken. I mellandagarna 2014 besök av Hanna och Peter.

light carb which is nice for a lambic, good barnyard and farm fuck arounds, awesome balance and lots of gunpowder, fruits, everything really.

Vignale (2282) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Provglas på Brekeriet bar. Ingen kolsyra och lite platt munkänsla för mig som ovan. Men väldigt mjuk och uppfriskande, lättdrucken, äppelcidervinäger, syrliga äpplen, trä, funk, torr, stram men ändå mjuk. Riktigt trevlig.

Bottle split with Mowbeer at Luppolo 12. Served in a wine glass it was a brilliantly clear pink tinted gold with a minimal head. it is lovely clear copper gold.. The nose is spicy pine, earthy hops, sour peppery goodness. The body is silky smooth and light but damn good. Very very nice.
