Only available straight from cask at the brewery or in a very few traditional pubs in the direct neighborhood of Vlezenbeek.

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".

On tap at DHVL, pours a clear golden with a tiny head. Aroma is subtle with light funk. Flavour is fairly sharp, with funk, lemon, and leather. Finishes very citric, but well-balanced. Solid one, but not my favourite of the unblended lambics.

bartlebier (2674) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 28, 2014
Cask pour@Nacht vd Grote Dorst, Eizeringen 25/04. Pungent apple vinegar acidity morphs into a bland, straight-up citric, musty wood and again viscous apple vinegar attack. Refreshing, with rough edges but no danger for the enamel,

Cask @ Night of the Great Thirst (Eizeringen). Hazy yellow with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of green apples, light barnyard, hay, lemon and cheesy notes. Taste is similar with green apples, hints of sweetness, light barnyard and lemony notes. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Mild, but decent lambic.

On cask at night of the great thirst. Hazy pale gold pour with thin bubbly white head. Aroma is funky, really lemony, light cheesy notes, quite mild. Taste is tart, doughy graininess, lemon juice. Palate is light, thin carbonation. Somewhere between Timmermans and de Troch.
