Lambik until the age of about 6 months (on oak casks) is considered young (Jong in Dutch) and traditionally sold as such. The difference in flavor and palate between both Jong and Oud is substantial.

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

DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 20, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 [9/6/09] Tap at some small pub in Pajottenland. Cloudy orange with a bit of white foam. Aroma of wort, some fruits and some yeast. Sourish flavor with some sweet sugariness and fruits. Medium-bodied. Flavor is nice but the aroma is stil too wort-like.

Davvero ottimo anche questo lambic di Girardin, assaggiato dal bicchiere di Wiggs che ha fatto una degustazione tutta Girardin. Non terrigno come Cantillon, ne smorza un pochino le asperità in sentori lievi e primaverili, ma è sempre un bel bere.

Draft @ De kiek, Vlezenbeek. Pours a hazy orange color with a small fast disappearing white head. Has a fruity slightly hoppy grainy aroma with some earthy hints. Fruity malty bitter hoppy flavor with some oaky hints. Has a fruity malty slightly hoppy bitter finish.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy orange body with a small white foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit peel, earth, sour apple, and barnyard. Flavor of grapefruit, earth, cheese, and lots of funkiness with a dry wood finish. Superb!

Clear golden with nearly no head. Sourish apples hits the nose along with barnyard and wood. Flavour was sourish with sour apples, wood, hay and leather accents. Finished slightly sour.

I picked up a fresh plastic jug of this at the Girardin brewery a few weeks back. The beer poured a dense, cloudy yellow, straw color with a nice 1/2 head. The nose is has some fresh citrus and apple character to it. The taste starts out a tad bitter and has some pepper notes. After while a nice apple taste and orange as well comes through. The taste is a bit herbal as well. No real sour or tart taste. Very easy drinking. It is wonderful to taste such a fresh lambic, straight from the barrel. I will definitely be going back to get more of this!

Cask at GBBF with my good of good friends The Duff. Iv been monumental about a few things, ie rochefort 10 is the best of the best and imp stouts are for cleaning the things that no one see’s that are already black. However this takes things to a new level. This is takling things back to my ratebeer youth, this is a child with the owner of a sweet shop saying, whatever you want is on the house, but choose wisely. This is like dancing in high moon on ther balcony of the most beautiful place known to any immagination. This is beauty. Once does not say "i excuse all of my feats from before now, i am now complete. As i have found it" I had to go buy a pint glass as i got bored of drinking 1/3rd soo quickly. How does one purt such a point? Yes marrage beats it. Yes your child coming into the world. And well yes rangers beating celtic 4 times and winning on the last game of the season comes close. But my god, this beats all other beers, this is the daddy. I will for once and forever until proven otherwise hold this as my favourate beer ever ever ever. I thank you.

Cask, BSF at the GBBF. Copper, a bit of fine white bubbles. Green grape nose, a bit of rose petals, lemon, viney. Dry grape flavor with a really interesting biscuit touch. Beautifully refreshing, bright and young but still a ton of character.

[email protected] Golden colour, small bubbly head. Aroma is very sweet fruits with some wooden and appleish notes. Also some vanilla and mild sourness. Flavour is quite sweet frutiy sourness with some slight stinging notes in the finish. A lot easier than the oude lambik.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at GBBF.
Solid gold colour, slightly hazy and a bubbly head. A young and appley Girardin. Superb wooden notes, incredible citrus and funk. Not yet quite dry enough for you to think about not downing it. This is breakfast lambic. If I could knock back a glass of this every morning the world would be a better place.
