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 Iíve had in a long time. Thanks Santa you clearly went above and beyond to get me this.

From notes. Enjoyed at Dougís house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a murky orangey gold color with no head or sign of carbonation. This is a little different. The aroma is interesting. There is a tart vinegar right up front and a bit of yeast, barnyard, light fruit skin, and a bit of dried hay. Itís messy. The flavor is much of the same. There is a light stone fruit to it, but itís overshadowed. There is a little bit of leather on top of the barnyard and an oaky funk. The mouth feel is oily and flat as fuck. There is no carb at all, and thatís an issue I believe. The aftertaste is lingeringly oaky and funky. There isnít much good happening here.

At the epic peach/apricot sour tasting. Aroma is sour, funk, skins, good. Appearance is amber golden, clear, flat. Taste is flat, oak barrel, funk, barnyard, eh. Mouthfeel is flat, light to medium body, oak funk aftertaste. Overall, first unblended did not impress.

dmac (5377) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2016
750ml c&c bottle from a group that may or may not exist on this site. Poured a super flat sun burnt orange body with zero head from the lack of carbonation. Aroma is tart apple cider vinegar, horse blanket, set leather, yeast, tannins and slight manure. Body is horribly flat, zero carbonation and an average aftertaste on the flavor. Flavor of green apple cider, leather, tannins, horse blanket, light funk and cob webs. Body sucks, actually flatter than water somehow.

Bottle in Rome. Thanks Mortlach! Still dark gold, clear. No head. A little waft of funky rotting fruit. A little oxidation, lots of sweet fruit juice. Clean, rather tasty, but a little muted. nice treat.
