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".

Draught at Delirium village at the end of an epic session. Fresh lemon notes, juicy mouthfeel, smooth finish. Pretty decent stuff as far as I remember.

KoNrRiI (1177) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2016

0.375 bottle.
A clear, gold color with absolutely no head to speak of. A sweet, and fruity aroma - not bad actually. Taste is exactly as expected, incredibly sour, smacking of apples and fermentation. A light body, a slick texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish is medium long, less fruity and more acidic, vinegar perhaps, than the rest. Overall the beer is terribly sour, somewhat woody, and if a beer can taste "old", then this one certainly does.

laiti (8031) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2016
From a cardboard box @ De Struise, Bruges. 3 year old sample. Aroma has grapefruit, earthy notes and tartness. Pretty typical to lambic. Flavour has grapefruit, orange and earthy notes. Very clean with high drinkability and nothing disturbing. Perhaps a bit simple though.

ninecats (479) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
Sample at en Öl- och Whiskymässa, 2016. Hazy dark yellow, very hazy, that is, complete thick and cloudy, no signs of head really. Aroma is barn, citrus, vinegar, murky smell, almost sulphur. Taste is sour, woody, light vinegar, grassy and dry bitterness, semi tart. Medium body, oily texrure, low to flat carbo. Typical young lambic, not too complex but very good in its own way.

On tap at the PIB. Pours a cloudy yellow copper color with a medium white head. A huge cobweb funky dry woody nose. Apricot, dusty sweet malts, funky elements. Sharp at times, fairly sour. Quite good, I could drink a lot of this.

cmacklin (803) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear golden colour with a thin, white head that leaves spotty lacing. Sour aroma of citrus and barnyard. Sweet fruity flavour of citrus with a sour, acidic finish. Light body with a watery texture and flat carbonation. Ok, but not as good as I was expecting.
