RATINGS: 195   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.53/5   EST. CALORIES: 171   ABV: 5.7%
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".

EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, - SEP 7, 2013
Dorée voilée, pétillance moyenne avec bulles fines, col moyen persistant. Plutôt boisée, trop peu d’acidité, légère amertume houblonnée, vineuse, petite astringence, un rien citronnée. Autre chose que la gueuze Belle-Bue!

Super funky, cheesy, sweet tarts, cobwebs, lemons, oaky, biscuit, waxy, and horse blanket in the aroma. Taste is cheesy, lemony, waxy, oaky, tannic, metallic, urine, and straw with a lightly sour finish. Slick mouthfeel with no carbonation. Not bad.

Zlotta (570) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2015
On tap at Gollem Amstelstraat, approximately 3 years old according to the bartender. Minimally hazy, golden amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head. Funky-citrusy aroma of lemon, gooseberry, oak and a bit of pepper. Funky, sour-citrusy taste of lemon, gooseberry and oak, followed by a medium long, tart and lightly peppery finish. Thin to medium body, effervescent and astringent mouthfeel, flat. Very refreshing, quite sour and rather funky but still easy to drink. Good.
