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 "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".

Svesse (7502) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2016
(Draught/bag-in-box at Kulminator, Antwerpen, 15 Oct 2015. Vintage 2011) Hazy brownish yellow colour with foamy, white head. Fruity, sourish nose with oak wood, cellar, grapefruit and unripe green grapes. Fruity, tart taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, green grapes, cellar, stable and a dry and tart finish. Medium body, dry. Musty and tasty traditional lambic. Nice one.

neongolden (1012) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2015
(2011 lambic on cask @ Grote Dorst, Eizeringen, Nov 15 2015) Pours very hazy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of lemon yoghurt, cut grass, flowers, wet sulfurous earth. Palate is dominated by a creamy lemon juice and yoghurt lactic character with wet earth funk underneath. A little damp basement and wood on the finish but not much, smooth and really lemon dominated. Light-med body with no carb. Kind of meh. I felt it was lacking in funk and complexity but the acid profile made it tough to drink in volume, so not refreshing.

gEUS (1615) - Linden, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2015
from bag in box t Kulminator. Pours clear golden yellow, no head. Aroma is citrus, milk sour and green apple. A total lack of bretty character. Makes one think of typucal American style sour, including the lacto impressions. Light body, extremely sour, even at room temperature. Taste is green apple, citrus, and lactic notes. Total lack of brett for an "old" lambic.
