COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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".

20/08/2011 poured from refilled bottle @ 2de Gents Bierfestival (2011-405)

Cloudy light orange beer, no head. Aroma: soft brett, some sewer like smell, citrus and vinegar. MF: refreshing, medium body. Taste: lemon, lemon and orange zest. Aftertaste: surprisingly pretty bitter.

77ships (4215) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2011
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

Travlr (13023) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Draught at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. Cloudy variegated golden color. Aroma of pear and subtle vanilla. Taste is very dry, very sour, sweaty feet, cobwebs, attic, horse. Neat stuff.

Scopey (7183) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2011
Tap at the 20th Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. It pours very hazy golden yellow, with no head or carbonation. The nose is ginger, wheat, bread, farmyard, smoked ham and smoked cheese. The taste is weak lemon, wheat, cat piss, and weak grapefruit, with a weird spicy finish. The only beer of the fest that I couldn’t finish and also induces headaches.

jfb (4022) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2011
(draught) pours a hazy golden colour with no head. aroma mostly of lemons, with a light bretty funkiness, some gouda cheese and sweatsocks. flavour is the same, striking a nice balance between the citric tartness and the funk, with lots of mild cheese, quite mild overall. medium-bodied with no carbonation.

pivnizub (9000) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Barrel: Golden, hazy, almost no head; cellary-grapefruity nose; sourish-bitter flavour, light bodied, slightly lingering bitter-grapefruity finish. Refreshing......

Koelschtrinker (10962) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Wenig intensiver Körper mit deutlichem Hopfen, später auch mit trockenen Bitternoten. Deutlich milder werdend, holzig, nicht ganz ausgewogen. /8/8/6//8

sdmmb (956) - USA - DEC 11, 2010
Jonge lambik from October 2010 tasted at de dag van de lambik. A bit of a surprise and would benefit with some ageing

shrubber85 (7870) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Tap at WOSF’10. Sweet berry malt aroma - lightly tart. Cloudy yellow-orange color with slight head. Dry tart apple flavor with a bitter finish. Interesting beer - unique flavors.

A bit cheesy and dry. Not sure I like it. Yeasty white grapes. Not too nice.
