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".

EddyBeer1 (864) - 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!

Rasmus40 (10828) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Tap @ In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst. Clear golden with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, citrus and barnyard. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate acidic. Dry and light acidic finish. 130714

MJGG (950) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Verre de 25 cl, d’un cask, au ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Arômes de brettanomyces portant surtout sur la paille et le citron. Robe blonde et limpide, aucune effervescence ou mousse. En bouche, ce lambic montre un beau caractère cristallin portant sur les agrumes (surtout le citron) et le foin sec. Finale très sèche et présentant une belle acidité lactique et citrique. Très intéressant et rafraîchissant.

I didn’t liked this lambic. Light aroma and some body without typical brett aroma and flavour...

2014.04 - ZBF Leuven - geel/oranje bier - neus : zuur en fruitig - mond : heel zuur, het fruitige karakter verdwijnt wat op de achtergrond, houttoets. Bij deze wint de geur het van de smaak (niettemin, ook deze is geweldig lekker).

JulienHuxley (2990) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
On cask at Grote Dorst. Clear gold pour with thin bubbly head. Aroma is quite nice, mild lambic funk, lemony notes, light lactic notes, wet grain, sourdough, fresh grassiness. Taste is tart, light lemony flavor, grainy, mild honey sweetness, really good balance. Palate is not quite completely dry, light carbonation. The best unblended I had that day.

vipinvelp (2122) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2014
Clear orange yellow with small bubbly foam head. Aroma is slightly sour, green apples I would say. Same with taste, slightly sour, but well drinkable and nice fresh. (Antwerpen 201404)

hopscotch (9041) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle... Clear yellow ale with a mid-sized, foamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma offers a marriage of funky horse blanket and fruity, acidic lemon. Light to medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is not sour, but is moderately tart, fruity and lemony. Finishes tangy and lightly dry. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

tom10101 (2699) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
Draught @ Delirium Café (Bruxelles). Clear straw color with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of wood, light acidic presence and lemon. Taste is woodsy with light funk, acidic notes and lemon. Light body (a tad weak). Flat. Dry finish. Good Lambic. A tad watery though.

bartlebier (1631) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
(backlog) Oude Lambiek On draught @ZBF 04/2013. Exquistely light, recalls old-school homemade lemonade from limes and pamplemousse. Excellent old hop bitterness, good balance. Delicious dry lemonade for grownups.
