Attention! This is not the bottled 1996 vintage to be found in Swedish Systembolaget or in speciality shops in Belgium. If you had "Lindemans Oude Lambik 1996 Vintage" or "Lindemans Loeierik", then you have to enter a rating for "Lindemans Oude Lambik (Loerik)".

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".

One-year-old: Slightly hazy, golden amber, no head. Sourish-fruity, slightly funky aroma of lemon, rhubarb, oak, some sweat and a touch of gooseberry. Moderately sour, quite fruity and moderately funky taste of lemon, rhubarb, oak and some gooseberry, followed by a medium long, rather tart and dry finish. Thin to medium body, moderately astringent mouthfeel, flat. Nice! (7/3/7/3/14/3.4)

Kran. Nie robiłem szczegółowych notatek podczas degustacji, ale pamiętam, że było umiarkowanie kwaśne, aromaty kwaśnych owoców, aromaty i posmaki charakterystyczne dla dzikusów - całkiem przyjemne i orzeźwiające.
