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".

Hazy gold, no head. Nose is urine and grapefruit, clay, salt. Flavor of egg, acid, light cream and wheat, decent finish of lemon with low carbonation. Bit plain, egg leads into the short citrusy finish, low carbonation.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2009
1 year old lambic at Delerium, based on the presence: hazy orange with a semi lasting, bubbly and white head I think this is the Jonge Lambik. Aroma sweet malty, light grassy hoppy. Sweet malty flavoured, light bitterness and vague citrusy note lurking through. Bitter and slight spiced flavoured finish.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 25, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 [9/8/09] Bag in box at Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Golden-bronze color with a very bubbly small white head. Aroma has some funky cheese, barnyard notes and citrus. Sour bretty flavor, but with very noticable residual sugars that disappear towards a dry, slightly astringent, finish with some lemon and grapefruit. Very lightly carbonated, but still haven’t really matured yet.
