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 "Timmermans Oude Lambik" and anything less than 6 months-old under "Timmermans 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".

Handpump at Gents Bierfestival 2013 (taken from notes). APPEARANCE: light clouded blond beer, nice stable white head? This is a lambic right? NOSE: nice sourness, little lactic, fruity, grains. TASTE: nice and sour, sourness spreads all around your mouth! fruity, some peaches. Very nice Lambic!

Enjoyed at the 4de Gents Bierfestival, 2013. This seems to be in that 6 to 12 month age where the appearance is more of a Jonge Lombik so I’ll put the rating here. The sample was tapped out of a beer engine and delivering a hazy deep gold body that supports a semi loose near white head of foam. The aroma offers up soured citrus, slightly moldy grapefruit, sweaty socks and a bit of vinegar. The taste is crisp and heads quickly into puckering tartness. I get lemon and grapefruit and then some soft faintly sweetened vinegar notes. This ends dry and moderately tart. Cool experience.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2013
Golden colour, no head. Aroma of lemon, wood, wood cuttings, citrus, sweets (zuurtjes) and floral notes. Quite sour flavour, lemon, citrus, almost like biting a bonbon napoleon. Very fresh, easy going, sour finish, light wood touch.
Quite brilliant. I really love this stuff.
(From cask -an enormous wooden barrel- @ Brugs Bier Festival 2013)

Apparently cask from a wooden barrel? Sampled @ Brugs Bier Festival 2013. Apparently brewed by a new brewer – one that Uli was quite exited about – things apparently bound to change. Hazy golden, typical bubbles but more than usually. Sour lemon in the nose, very sour lemon sorbet, tad watery with lots of lemon acidity, almost touch added, finding bad similarity with their Oude Geuze, very light flowers. Taste is lemon acidity, almost added, sour lemon sorbet thing, sour apples, served too cold, way too, light flowers, reasonable, lightly lactic sour… Obviously flat, light touch watery,… Simple but enjoyable, eases the thirst, very easy to seasion a lot, yes this would easy do the trick. Many would probably find this too easy. #25 Unblended Lambic.
