The original brewed Lambic. Letting this beer age for 1, 2 or 3 years and mixing those for fresh Lambic makes a Gueuze. A Gueuze is also bottle conditioned which gives it carbonation. The Lambic however is complete flat without bubbles. Available only in draught form.

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 "Girardin Oude Lambik" and anything less than 6 months-old under "Girardin Jonge Lambik".

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".

jbruner (4107) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2016 Pours a hazy gold on tap with a thin ring of bubbly white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of musty funk, tart apple notes, wine barrel, and a bit of sweet wheat. Taste is more balanced, but still a bit sweet, a bit less funk. I think I prefer the blended stuff, but this is still pretty freaking awesome to have on draught.

Frisch aus dem Fass im Bierzirkus in Brüssel getrunken. Perfektes Gold ohne Schaum und Rezens. Gar nicht sooooo sauer. Wunderschöne Cidernoten im Nachtrunk.

Tap at WvdSG. Clear orange golden with a few big bubbles. Massive dust and oak, bitter fruit skins, tangerine skin even, cheese, grass. Quite unusual actually but hard to put it into words. Slightly moldy though. Light sweet and almost medium bitter. Medium bodied with no carbonation.
