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 (6685) - 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 (4604) - 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 (8211) - 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

At grote dorst, flat and golden. Tart lemon aroma. Flavor is tart and surprisingly hoppy. Very interesting.
