COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only available straight from cask at the brewery or in a very few traditional pubs in the direct neighborhood of Vlezenbeek.

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".

caesar (7170) - Bunnik/Utrecht, - AUG 4, 2012
Fresh from the brewery, served in 10 L jerrycan. Only slight hazy golden color. Aroma of barnyard, hay, still some ammonia-notes in it. Quite dry. You can note the resemblances between old and young lambik, but the older one is definitely more improved and matured. Nice one.

On tap at ’In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst’, labeled ’Oude Lambiek’, age unknown to me. Pours clear, fizzing golden/orange with a diminishing, off-white head, completely gone soon. Strong Lambic smell. The aroma contains yeast, barnyard, leather, wood, vinegar, some fruits (apple and kiwi). It tastes heavy to medium sour with light sweet hints throughout. Medium body, slick texture, soft to flat carbonation. Very agreeable in its fruitiness.

Caňa en Cimmeria 25.. 05.. 2017. (r97). Color amarillento velado con espuma blanca. Sabores herbáceos ligeramente afrutados con toques ácidos. Tonos de maderas empapadas en vinos blancos. Cuerpo ligero a medio algo espumoso y con ligero amargo final algo seco. Buena. Refrescante.

Keg @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 19-05-2017.
Note: i assume the one i had is the Oude Lambik. I had a keg of the same beer several months ago, and rated it as Jonge. Differences are noticeable.
In short: dry flat lambic.
Pours little hazy golden with little white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Tart, horseblanket nose. Medium body, flat carbonation, oily texture. Taste is tart and dry, some fruity notes. A bit liveless. Average, not outstanding.
