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".

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

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.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2012 This lambic was about a year old, so I’ll rate it as jonge lambic. Litre swing top bottle, poured by the friendly brewer from one of his wooden casks. Faded orange color, absolutely no head. Light citrus and raspberry aroma. Very pleasant but not as assertive as many other lambics. Medium bodied, but still a touch of wateriness. Very soft taste with just a touch of sourness. Citrus rules, but there are also other flavors. Some wood, milk, butter, grapes, raspberry. The complexity is there, but there could be a touch more character. Nevertheless a treat and a really great beer. Sample tasted in august 2012: Vinegar in the aroma. Traubenzucker. Sour, sulphury flavor.

Tour de Geuze 2007, draught at brewery. Superb full bodied lambic, tart but not sour, really refreshing. Amazingly competent given that it seems 99% of this breweries beer is fermented in metal conicals with a spade full of wood chips for flavour.

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.

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.
