COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 "Oud Beersel Oude Lambik" and anything less than 6 months-old under "Oud Beersel 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 @ Kick. Slightly unclear golden body with practically no head, just a thin white film that disappears immediately. Classic funky Lambic aroma, horse blanket and fruity acid. Flavor is dry, acidic and fruity but there is also some kind of soft malt sweetness here. Itís a fine and relatively easy drinkable Lambic for the sour beer drinkers, still Iím convinced there is a good reason for blending Lambics. They tend to miss a lot of the complexity from a Geuze whatsoever. Itís sure nice to sample a few unblended once to know a little of what it is about, but the blended stuff is just more complex. Anyway this is one of the smoothest Lambics I have sampled.

GenDV138 (2750) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2015
4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Hazy yellow/orange with light off-white bubbles around the edges. Aromas of floral notes, hay, barnyard funk, tart fruit. Tastes of floral notes, barnyard funk, hay, citrus, tart acidic notes, stone fruit. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

Draft at Churchkey. Draft listing states "blend of Boon-brewed lambics aged 6 months in Chateauneuf-du-Pape barrels." Turbid apricot colored pour, no head whatsoever. Nose and flavor bring beautiful horseblanket and earthen funk, hay, lemon, cider vinegar, hints of vinous tannin. Flavor much of the same, with apple and lemon coming to the fore. Very light carbonation, just beyond still. Delicious.

PriorL (2460) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2015
Sample at the brewery from the brewer. THX! APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, no head. NOSE: very sour, barnyard, horseblanket, quite some oak, somewhat sweet. TASTE: very sour again, rather balanced, very dry and somewhat sweet. Very nice in general for a young lambic!

Steasy66 (1038) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2014
At grote dorst, flat and golden. Tart lemon aroma. Flavor is tart and surprisingly hoppy. Very interesting.

Alengrin (2928) - BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2014
The lambic made at Oud Beersel since 2004 (some years after the original brewer had stopped his activities there). An elegant, estery, pleasantly woody orange blonde lambic with hints of apple, a ímalsí character, well rounded with restrained vinegar-like acidity especially in the long, complex finish.

mcberko (8443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
On tap, just under a year old, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma is pretty funky, with light leather, and wet wood. Flavour is very similar, with a dry puckering mouthfeel. Dry, bitter, and lightly funky on the finish. Very good stuff.

JulienHuxley (3910) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Cask at WoSF 2014. Cloudy flat gold pour. Aroma is quite horrible, burnt rubber and urine, really funky, super cheesy. Flavor of vomit, burnt rubber, sulfur and solvent. Really horrible, I couldnít do much more than taste a few milliliters at once. Ughh.

At WE of spontaneous fermentation 2014. Hazy yellow/golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma of urine, rubber, sulfur and hay. Taste isnít much better with a lot of rubber and sulfur along light acidity and hay. Medium body. Flat. I usually like unblended lambic, but this one is atrocious. The Oud Beersel Oude Lambik we had at Grote Dorst a couple of weeks ago was so much better.

MarcoDL (2598) - NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2014
Not a very interesting lambic, but even an average lambic is a great beer. Freshly sour, with just a mild tardiness. Interesting to only drink the young version for once.
