Unlike many other unblended oude lambik, there exists both draft and bottled versions of De Cam Oude Lambiek.

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 "De Cam Oude Lambiek" and anything less than 6 months-old under "De Cam Jonge Lambiek".

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".

StefanSD (2407) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2013
750 ml bottle courtesy of Secret santa. Thanks. Pours a cloudy amber color with minimal head that instantly vanishes away. Perhaps this is a Jonge Lambik. The aroma is disgusting with extra funky horse blanket, whores dirty sheets and some barnyard bouquet--very nice. The flavor, like the aroma, is overtly funky with overripe fruits, cider, spoiled tart green apples, bit of sugar, oak and cedar. The palate is full and smooth with very soft carbonation. Finishes long and tart. Overall: I loved this, funkiest beer Ive had in a long time. Thanks Santa you clearly went above and beyond to get me this.

hauxe (477) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2016
From a 2006 bottle aged 10 years at the time of pouring. Shared darbeer75 and wombat23. Pours orange with no head or carbonation. Aroma a mix of brandy, apple, and something musty. Sour tartness dominates the taste, sweetens on the finish. Lightly acidic. Decent stuff.

pivnizub (10245) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle(750 ml): Hazy, deep golden with an orangey sheen; rich, mainly dry, nose of tart apples and malic acid, citric acid and some cellary notes are also included; moderate to solid dry sour flavour, some residual sugars very hard to detect, light to medium bodied, tart MF, but still quite soft; dry and lingering finish with apples, malic acid and a very slight bitterness. Well drinkable and very pleasant...

koleminer20 (2699) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed at Dougs house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a murky orangey gold color with no head or sign of carbonation. This is a little different. The aroma is interesting. There is a tart vinegar right up front and a bit of yeast, barnyard, light fruit skin, and a bit of dried hay. Its messy. The flavor is much of the same. There is a light stone fruit to it, but its overshadowed. There is a little bit of leather on top of the barnyard and an oaky funk. The mouth feel is oily and flat as fuck. There is no carb at all, and thats an issue I believe. The aftertaste is lingeringly oaky and funky. There isnt much good happening here.

At the epic peach/apricot sour tasting. Aroma is sour, funk, skins, good. Appearance is amber golden, clear, flat. Taste is flat, oak barrel, funk, barnyard, eh. Mouthfeel is flat, light to medium body, oak funk aftertaste. Overall, first unblended did not impress.
