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".

caesar (5131) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
Tap @ Boelekewis, Dworp, medium sample. Hazy orange color, no head. Aroma is mostly citric acid, hint of lactic acid, bit barnyard and horseblanket, soft fruitiness. Soft sour, slight fruity sweet. Overall mostly citric acid, but very nicely balanced and smooth. Great balance between sweet and sour. Wonderful jonge lambik.

Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2014
The lambic made at Oud Beersel since 2004 (some years after the original brewer had stopped his activities there). An elegant, estery, pleasantly woody orange blonde lambic with hints of apple, a ’mals’ character, well rounded with restrained vinegar-like acidity especially in the long, complex finish.

77ships (3800) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2012
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

JoeinDahlem (1326) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2007
Light reddish-brown color reminds me of sun tea. No bubbles, just a few UFOs that I’m 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.

shoulderbroken (2026) - 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.

madsberg (10228) - Søborg, 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.

DSG (5812) - 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.
