RATINGS: 77   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.42/5   ABV: -
Unblended lambic, max. 1 year old.

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 "Lindemans Oude Lambik" and anything less than 6 months-old under "Lindemans 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 @ Bier Bier, Helsinki. There was no information if this was jonge or oud, but I guess it was jonge. No head, but cloudy, dark orange. Not extremely sour and taste has some wooden flavours.

crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Draft. Assuming this is an alias. Golden pour. Apples kin and must nose. Body is watery, lightly sour with some cheesy funk. Its only decent.

Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - SEP 3, 2014
The unblended ’flat’ Lindemans lambic, earthy, sweaty, a bit smoky and funky but elegant and refined, with a cloudy straw blonde colour. Renowned for its high quality in lambic world and as such used by several geuze blenders; it’s a shame Lindemans does hardly anything else with it but covering it up with sugar and fruit extracts in most of their commercial products. But then there is still their Cuvée René, of course.

kraddel (9329) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2014
Sampled at Bierweekend de Lambiekstoempers 2014 . Pours unclear orange , smell is funky, apples . Taste is funky , bit dry , some sweetness . Some apple-ish flavors . Very fresh , but not as sour as i’d like it to be
