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".

caesar (5879) - Bunnik/Utrecht, - AUG 4, 2012
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.

BeerViking (3335) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2015
1.5 years old, at the Lambic museum. Hazy dark gold with no head, classic lemony nose and body, faint hints of cheese, simple and refreshing.

Tap@tuulensuu. Golden hazy, light orange. Wheaty malty npse. Some peach, ripe pineapple. Yeastyness on nose. Tart dry finish. Pale malts, light funk, farmhouse straw. Bit dull, more horse after a white though, but overall dissapointing.

Erasmus_ro (2018) - Alabama, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Tap @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Pours a hazy, opaque, light orange with a fairly large, white head. Aroma is bile and sour. Taste is sour, appleskin. Short aftertaste. Not very mouth puckering. Light with strong carbonation. Good drink, but on lambic scale not very impressive.

ElManana (1234) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2015
On draft at Toer De Geuze 2015. 2 years old is what I was told. Orange with a foamy head. Weardly enough it’s containing carbonatoin. Little bit of lemon, tarty sour, misses the big taste of other lambieks I’ve had earlier this day (Timmermans, De Cam, Oud Beersel). Certainly not bad.

Martinus (4065) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma if green apple, brett, white wine. Sour flavour, lactic acid, green apples. Sour finish, lactic acid, buttermilk, green apples. Nice, refreshing and balanced.

Sjohnh (513) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Appearance and mouthfeel is of rustic apple juice - cloudy copper with no head, fairly thin body. Lively carbonation though, nose and initial taste is sour, followed by some citrus tang.
