RATINGS: 47   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.25/5   ABV: -
Unblended lambic, max. 1 year old.

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

(Backlog) at spontaneous fermentation. Golden pour with no head. Rustic, metallic, awful flavors. Aromas of spice, funk and other off tones.

At WE of Spontaneous Fermentation 2014. Slightly hazy golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of sulfur, hay, light funk and rotten eggs. Taste is very similar with wet grass. Medium body. Flat. Dusty finish. Not a fan.

Cask at WoSF 2014. Clear gold pour. Funky aroma, hay, grassy hay notes, floral notes, lots of cereal aromas. Taste is grainy, light grassy finish, a bit pils-like actually, very mild tartness. Pretty decent.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 From a little plastic barrel at Kronieksken in Liedekercke. About halfway through my 750ml of Girardin Black Label, and a good bit of talk about Lambic the owner of the place said he had a little something for me & brought out a wine glass telling me it was Jonge Lambic from Lindemans. He said a customer had ordered it & that it turned out to be not what he wanted, as he pointed at one of those little barrel (growlers to go). I got the impression he intended to just drink it himself but was kind enough to let me have a little.

Pours basically still with a hazy golden color.

The aroma is lemony with a pretty yogurt-y smell, somewhat sweet and salty smelling as well.

The flavor is lemony and earthy, lightly sweet & a little bit grainy.

Simply but very enjoyable jonge lambic.

Sweet citrus blossoms with sweet candy on the nose. Pours light gold, still no carbonation. Very earthy and dry with a building tartness. Not bad.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 @GBF 2011 – poured from an emptied, glass water bottle (certainly a first for me): hazy orange with no head, smell is lots of funky peach & some horse blanket, taste is lots of slightly tart peaches & lots of lactic bacteria, slightly tart aftertaste, horse blanket, more or less flat, great stuff /// upped the score for this one from 4.4 to 4.6 - not because I retried it but quite a few lambic latter, I still remember this as being one of the fines pure lambic’s I have had so far
