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".

10l Bagbox. No foam, no carbonation. Amber coloured. Incredibly both drinkable and complex in aroma and flavour. Apple juice, old white wine, woody notes, cheese in the nose. Plus much other stuff... Non as sour as I expected. Leaves the mouth clear to drink it again and again, so the 10 liters bagbox is the right packaging for this nectar! Lovely.

Tap at de Koffer as Unblended Oude Lambik. Clear deep orange with white ring head. Grain and dough, apricot, sugar and alcohol. Moderate sweet and light sour and bitter. Thin body, slick and supple, no carbonation.

Fra fat på DØE ølfestival, Lokomotivværkstedet mai-17: lett uklar lys kobber uten skum. Hovedinntrykket er sure bær med et snev av vineddik. Ufrisk og ubehaglig. Arbeidsuhell?

Aroma is wood and ’pinot de charentes’. Wry oak. No carbonation at all. Nice sour.

Wow. Spændende lambic, med gode smagsnuancer. Sur uden at være for sur. Flot farve,

Draft at Verzekering. Pours clear golden. Aroma is sweaty feet, funk, farmhouse. Body is light, very little sourness and tartness, a bit of funk, but also rather thin, some hay. Rather thin, but well balanced. Not complex. Good.

From a bag in a box; Brownish color, smokey as it warms, woody herbal, taste is quite bitter, low fruitiness, lingering funk, really dry mouthfeel with big woodiness, hardly sour nor fruity

Inbreak (5790) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2017
26.02.2017, tap from a bag-in-box (4 year old) @ Koelschip:
Small bubbly shortlasting head. Aroma is mild floral, wet hay, flowers, weeds, minerals, sour grass, heather, old moss, oak, old moldy cellar. Taste is slightly dry floral, weeds, bark, wet hay, minerals, oak, old rope, grass, old wash cloth, heather, old moss, moldy cellar. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and harsh floral mouthfeel. Disappointing.

Habanero (4634) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2017
Bottled. Pours hazy deep golden with a small head. Aroma of , citrus notes, green grapes, barnyard and more funk. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up being dry and tart. Medium bodied, watery texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Lambic indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

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.
