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".

mcberko (8308) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
On tap at Grote Dorst, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small bubbly head. Nose brings out light funk, feet, and lemony notes. Flavour is very citric, one of the most citric / lemony unblended lambic I’ve had, with very light funk. Intensely citric and tart, with a very puckering finish. Solid stuff - cool to try the base beer before Timmermans destroys it with sugar.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Verre d’un cask au Café Red Rose (Brugge). Arômes assez puissants de vieux lambic. Pointe de vinaigre. Robe blonde et limpide, aucune effervescence ou mousse. En bouche, la présence acétique est un peu forte à mon goût, mais on retrouve également un beau caractère de vieille cave et d’agrumes. Acidité lactique et acétique d’intensité moyenne à forte. Intéressant!

bartlebier (2382) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2014
Cask@NachtvdGrote Dorst, Eizeringen 25/04. Pours a dirty deep yellow. Fluid lemon and lime orgy, made palateable with a lieblich-oilier mouthfeel than usual. Citrus zest notes coming from the aged hops remain flavourfully distinguishable from the other acidic registers of funk.
