RATINGS: 53   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.3/5   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".

thellgren (810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Draught @ Bier Bier, Helsinki. There was no information if this was jonge or oud, but I guess it was jonge. No head, but cloudy, dark orange. Not extremely sour and taste has some wooden flavours.

Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2014
The unblended ’flat’ Lindemans lambic, earthy, sweaty, a bit smoky and funky but elegant and refined, with a cloudy straw blonde colour. Renowned for its high quality in lambic world and as such used by several geuze blenders; it’s a shame Lindemans does hardly anything else with it but covering it up with sugar and fruit extracts in most of their commercial products. But then there is still their Cuvée René, of course.

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.

JulienHuxley (5590) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
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.

Dag van de lambik @Verzekering tegen de groten dorst. Yellow colour, some carbonation. Starts sweet, bitter aftertaste and some sourness. Good one.
