COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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".

Draught @ Mikkeller Bar
Aroma is light with earthy notes and some slight sourness. Flavour is sourish with farmshouse aroma, some manure, earthy notes and lactic acid. My first jonge lambic - and a nice one. And refreshing. Surprisingly, close to their oude lambic.

NosirIwont (2591) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Bag-in-a-box. 5.0%. Pours a clear golden with no head. Aroma is tart, with notes of wood and faint vanilla. Tart to sour flavour with light apple notes, dry wood and light hops. Vineuse. Finish is tart/sour, bitter and dry with a slight perfumy note and a light vanilla overtone. Overall well-balanced; rather mild and not as our as expected; easy to drink. 17.11.12.

Draught at Grote Dorst. Clear light copper liquid with minimal white head. Aroma of apples, light funk, red berries, wood and light port wine. Taste is dry and light sour with notes of apples and light sugar. Medium bodied with no carbonation. Nice, one of the better straight lambics I’ve had.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2008 On tap at the Hotel Centrum, Beersel 25/4/08. Amber coloured with no head. Tart aroma with a touch of fruit, caramel and wood. Some sweet malt came through in the flavour before the tartness returned in the finish. Different and oddly refreshing.
