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".

Fresh from the brewery, served in 10 L jerrycan. Only slight hazy golden color. Aroma of barnyard, hay, still some ammonia-notes in it. Quite dry. You can note the resemblances between old and young lambik, but the older one is definitely more improved and matured. Nice one.

Kran. Nie robiłem szczegółowych notatek podczas degustacji, ale pamiętam, że było umiarkowanie kwaśne, aromaty kwaśnych owoców, aromaty i posmaki charakterystyczne dla dzikusów - całkiem przyjemne i orzeźwiające.
