COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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".

NosirIwont (2354) - Frederikssund, - NOV 17, 2012
Bag-in-a-box. Pours a clear golden with a small head. Sweet aroma with a somewhat soft sourness. Quite mild, but nice. Flavour is bitter and sour with slight notes of wood. Finish is a lingering dry bitterness with hops in the background. Overall quite mild for a lambic, but very drinkable. Nice. 01-05-09.
