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".

mariuspoenari (417) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2016
On tap at Craft & Draft. Clear orange pour with a white head. Acrid and funky smell. Sour and refreshing, more fresh than funky. Excellent beer, among the best lambics I have tried.

Rating #1496 - 13.03.2015 - On tap @revolutionyeg - #SourNFunk2015 - Pours a clear golden with a few bubbles at the top, not much carbonation to speak of. Aroma is Brett, floral, wildflowers. Palate is quite tart, but refreshingly so, light-medium body, mouthfeel is like fruit juice. A depth of sweet and sour flavours intermingling. Very nice.
