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".

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Keg at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden. Hazy yellow shade. Almost no head. Slight malty aroma with big jammy red wine fruitiness. Taste again is nicely juicy with sufficient wild lambic character. Medium sour, manageable, dryness as it finishes. Barrel really adds to this nicely.

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. It’s a fine and relatively easy drinkable Lambic for the sour beer drinkers, still I’m convinced there is a good reason for blending Lambics. They tend to miss a lot of the complexity from a Geuze whatsoever. It’s 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.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2015
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.
