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".

yespr (36972) - 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.

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.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, 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.

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.

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.
