COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 "Hanssens Oude Lambik" and anything less than 6 months-old under "Hanssens 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".

NikkTwist (3050) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2017
UPDATED: APR 26, 2017 Unexpectedly found on draft at Khyber Pass. Translucent golden orange pour. No head. Dynamically tart but with smooth edges. Notes of clementine, nectarine, pear, wild cherry, oak, sea salt, cobwebs, dust. Delicate citrus funk. Turned slightly sweet as it warmed but still mostly dry throughout. Wonderfully pleasant to sip.

JStax (6007) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Draft sample during Zwanze 2016. The beer is a clear gold with a white head of foam. Dry funk and some herbal tartness. Tart and funky taste. More character than most unblended lambics Ive tried. Medium body and medium carbonation.

tom10101 (5906) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2016
On tap at Farmhouse Tap & Grill. Clear bright orangey with no head or lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of citric notes, funk, some minerality and hints of caramel. Taste is medium sour, good funk level, lovely minerality, not much sweetness despite the caramel notes of the aroma and citric presence. Medium body. Soft carbonation is starting to develop. Mineral and funky finish. Nice balance between funk and citric presence. Sharp and rather complex. One of the good Oud Lambiek that I have tried so far.

ContemplateBeer (2077) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 29, 2015
One year old lambic on tap at Holy Grale; had a few sips of this from my mate, Ryan. Aroma: Acidity rules out over lighter funk notes; some apple or lemon-like fruitiness hangs in there. Appearance: Clear, coppery yellow with streams of light carbonation holding up a skin of white head. Flavor: Acidity is not mouth-puckering, but its the most prevalent flavor here; fruit dries up a bit more and carries through to the finish, which still holds a good amount of tartness. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Had pretty high expectations, and this was quite good, but wasnt a world beater for me.
