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".

DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, - 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 havenít really matured yet.

JoeinDahlem (1350) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2007
Light reddish-brown color reminds me of sun tea. No bubbles, just a few UFOs that Iím told are yeast from near the bottom of the barrel. Really? The bottom of the barrel never tasted this nice. Lightly sweet, musty and tart like cider from Granny Smiths, lightly acidic, a little rusty, somewhat dry. Refreshing.

Rastacouere (6148) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2007
Hazy light orange. Fair off-white head. Gently grapefruity, certainly citric and quite clean lambic. Soft, hay-like, almost floral character. It develops fresh wheat tones that make it highly drinkable. Hugely refreshing, unpretentious and drinkable example.

bierkoning (10791) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 Bruxellensis 2007. Lambic from november 2006. Cherry and grapes in the aroma. A soft sourness. Somewhat soapy flavor. Cherry, vinous. Shortish slightly nutty bitter aftertaste. 8 4 7 3 14 = 3.6 @ Retaurant Boelekewis, Dworp. Golden color, hazy. Milkaroma with a hint of citrus, Soft milky sourish flavor with peach and lemon. Sweetish, round, pleasant.

diabel (1619) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2007
At the brewery - 3 months old. Very hazy orange body without head off course. You can tell from the looks itís very young. Sweet, little bit acidic aroma, smells still like wort. Very hoppy bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Quite ok, but a little bit older should be better.

chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2007 From a bottle at ZBF 2007. Thanks to mes for procuring this one. If the Oude Kriek didnít quite seem the finished article, this certainly wasnít. Hazy straw colour. The aroma didnít have a huge degree of farmyard but there was a herbal, almost grassy character with a minty antiseptic undercurrent. Quite restrained acidity on the palate with more herbaceous elements. Soft mouthfeel (for a lambic), with a distinct sweetness. Unusual, but interesting, and not at all unpleasant.

madsberg (10594) - SÝborg, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2007
Draught. Golden coloured. No head. Unclear. Fresh sweetness with a delicious underlaying sourness. Is quite tart and has some woody and barnyardy notes. Flavour is woody as well. Earth and barnyard. Great souness. Is quite mild on the palate. Has a grassy and woody sour end. I like this.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2007
A Mes rate: Sneaky serving at ZBF thanks to Gert pulling out a plastic drinks bottle from the back of his stall. Cheers mate. Totally flat as you would expect, nice colour though. Apples all the way. Quite sour (as in off) apples in the nose. Almost rotting vegetation. Thankfully the taste is better. Sweet and tasty. A wonderful palate clearer and very refreshing after the days drinking we had. Kinda like cleaning your teeth with beer. Ok that sounds bad, it was good honestly. Odd stuff, very young. Not sure what else to say.

3fourths (8382) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Draft pour
Consumed at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation, Opstal, May 2006

Very raw nose, sweet and sickly, slightly grassy, smells like brewery wort... very young and raw smelling, which I guess is somewhat remarkable. Uncarbonated, very sweet, like nothing but drinking boiled and cooled wort. Weird. Not repulsive, but not very good.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2006
Draught. Pulpy orange body with a tiny, bubbly ring of head. The aroma is very ripe, yeasty, apples, pear, and banana fruitiness. Not particularly drinkable, IMO. Itís very sweet and underdeveloped. Sampled at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation on May 28, 2006.
