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 "Oud Beersel Oude Lambik" and anything less than 6 months-old under "Oud Beersel 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".

Tap at WoSF, 2013. It pours hazy amber with small bubbly head. The nose is lightly bitter, earth, leaf, vinous, mild sweetness and salty notes. The taste is ice-team, caramel, raisin, light sugar, peach, tanginess, mouldy wood and some spice. Lightish body and low carbonation. Almost tastes like a faro! Decent balance and drinkability. Not bad.

Draught. Finally found an unblemished and it blows me away so much funkier and earthier than other I have tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cunningham (7548) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2015
Unclear deep golden color with a small bubbly head that soon vanish. Lots of green apples and wood. Medium body, quite flat carbonation and a pleasant balanced acidity. Rich green apples, wood, some vinegar and citric. Refreshing and nice lambic.

Nocturne (1951) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Keg at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden. Hazy yellow shade. Almost no head. Slight malty aroma with big jammy red wine fruitiness. Taste again is nicely juicy with sufficient wild lambic character. Medium sour, manageable, dryness as it finishes. Barrel really adds to this nicely.
