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".

shoulderbroken (1698) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 6, 2013
Tap at Little Delirium. Light golden colour, clear, small thin white bubbly head. Aroma is apple, fruity, funky, bit of grapefruit. Taste is nice, sour, grapefruit and slightly vinous. Flat and soft. Definitely worth popping in here for one as it always seems to be on the menu.

brokensail (9938) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Pale golden pour with no head or carbonation. A really impressive funk aroma of grass, earth, and must. There’s a bit of sulfur to it, but a nice lactic tartness and some citrus fruitiness. A bit of cheese on the palate with a good sourness, some moderate earthy and musty funk, and lots of grass. Quite dry, too.

Pretty nice surprise seeing this on tap @ Little Delirium between an otherwise not terribly palatable beer list - 25 cl. draft - lightly hazy golden with only some lambic bubbles for head - aroma is a bit on the sweeter side lemons, some apples, dusty, light musty horseblanket, quite light - taste is rather sweet lemons, acidity is pretty low, mellow tart apples, peel, lime, light touch horseblanket - flat - this stuff is light, mellow, drinks like water - very, simple, lambic is about as simple as beer gets, quite enjoyable, blending, aging, etc. obviously means obviously a lot for the lambic plus the variations are always huge - they don’t serve the good lambic draft- good lambic is for blending into weaker lambic to have a consistent quality geuze if the other lambic turns out to be of weaker quality or to make special blends - def. better than the old one I tried way back

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
Bag-in-the-box at Delirium Tremens, Brussels
Hazy golden color, no head. The aroma is medium pungent, a bit lemony, cobwebs, light cheese. The low carbonation provides a soft mouthfeel; mild lemony flavor and mild astringency, not dry. Pleasant and refreshing, although not very complex.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2012
On draught at Little Delirium. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of lemon, horse blanket, wet cardboard and oak. Similar flavours and mildly tart with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

cpetrone84 (1201) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Jonge Lambic. Pour is slightly hazed golden yellow with virtually no head. The nose has some light rindy funk, notes of rubber band, touch of sea salt. Some sweet lemon and sour peaches in the back with a soapy citrus note behind. The taste falls short in expression, wet newspaper and some cheese rind. tart lemon and sour peach in back with light citrus and hint of bitterness. Lightly body, soft on the palate, soft carbontion and maybe a hint of dryness.

Ibrew2or3 (6523) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2011
On tap at Delirium Café pouring hazy deep gold with micro thin white head. The modest aroma offers up soft yeasty tartness and a good deal of tart and bitter citrus notes. The taste is crisp and quickly moves into tartness and lemon / lime like acidity as well as some lime peel. This has a good deal of grapefruit like citrus tartness and bitterness going on here.

txspartan (943) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - AUG 3, 2011
Nice. Rather sweet, yet watery. Though not at all unpleasant. Good to know where lambic stands at, at less than twelve months.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2011
draft @ Delirium. Dorée opaque présentant qcq bulles. Toutes les bonnes caractéristiques d’un bon lambic; sec, poussiéreux, terreux, note de grains, fine aigreur, aspect de grenier le tout laissant une note sèche en bouche avec cette touche de fruit raisin, profile léger de malt avec note de caramel. Carbonation est légère donnant un picotement sur la langue. Facile à boire, mais manque un peu la touche de complexité qui met la version de Cantillon ou 3F devant celle-c.
