Attention! This is not the bottled 1996 vintage to be found in Swedish Systembolaget or in speciality shops in Belgium. If you had "Lindemans Oude Lambik 1996 Vintage" or "Lindemans Loeierik", then you have to enter a rating for "Lindemans Oude Lambik (Loerik)".

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".

Aroma: The smell is very intriguing, stable, dirt, horse, ripe fruits and yeast.
Appearance: A clear orange amber brew, a small white head, no lacing, small curtains.
Taste: Tasting of fresh green apples, old vinegar, some sour cream notes, a nuance of old wood.
Palate: Little carbonation, a very refreshing palate, a coarse dry finish.
Overall: A really well balanced lambic, went very well with ripe goat cheese. At a food and beer tasting.
Note: On-tap at De Klomp. Reviewed 2011-04-02.

laiti (5573) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 21.04.2010
Aged approximately one and a half year
Aroma is sourish with earthy notes, lactic acid and hints of grapefruit. Flavour is sour with earthy notes, some grapefruit and lactic acid. Now I could finally taste the gastric acid typical to beers based on this Lambic. I didn’t observe it at younger samples – perhaps it evolves in a year or so.
