COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The original brewed Lambic. Letting this beer age for 1, 2 or 3 years and mixing those for fresh Lambic makes a Gueuze. A Gueuze is also bottle conditioned which gives it carbonation. The Lambic however is complete flat without bubbles. Available only in draught form.

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".

Aminatchime (35) - BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2017
Cloudy donkergele kleur. Geur is als een paardenstal met een fris windje erdoor. De smaak is op en top appeltjes. De smaak van appeltjes gaat over in iets deegachtig met een sterk accent van haver. Op het einde een lichte zuurheid.
