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".

On draft at Toer De Geuze 2015. Red wine, sweet, nice sour, extremely well balanced. Fantastic lambic. Little bit of an offsmell.

Beer5000 (6322) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2015
On tap @ Kick. Slightly unclear golden body with practically no head, just a thin white film that disappears immediately. Classic funky Lambic aroma, horse blanket and fruity acid. Flavor is dry, acidic and fruity but there is also some kind of soft malt sweetness here. Its a fine and relatively easy drinkable Lambic for the sour beer drinkers, still Im convinced there is a good reason for blending Lambics. They tend to miss a lot of the complexity from a Geuze whatsoever. Its sure nice to sample a few unblended once to know a little of what it is about, but the blended stuff is just more complex. Anyway this is one of the smoothest Lambics I have sampled.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Draft at Churchkey. Draft listing states "blend of Boon-brewed lambics aged 6 months in Chateauneuf-du-Pape barrels." Turbid apricot colored pour, no head whatsoever. Nose and flavor bring beautiful horseblanket and earthen funk, hay, lemon, cider vinegar, hints of vinous tannin. Flavor much of the same, with apple and lemon coming to the fore. Very light carbonation, just beyond still. Delicious.

PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2015
Sample at the brewery from the brewer. THX! APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, no head. NOSE: very sour, barnyard, horseblanket, quite some oak, somewhat sweet. TASTE: very sour again, rather balanced, very dry and somewhat sweet. Very nice in general for a young lambic!

Steasy66 (1124) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2014
At grote dorst, flat and golden. Tart lemon aroma. Flavor is tart and surprisingly hoppy. Very interesting.

Alengrin (5105) - BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2014
The lambic made at Oud Beersel since 2004 (some years after the original brewer had stopped his activities there). An elegant, estery, pleasantly woody orange blonde lambic with hints of apple, a mals character, well rounded with restrained vinegar-like acidity especially in the long, complex finish.

mcberko (16609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
On tap, just under a year old, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma is pretty funky, with light leather, and wet wood. Flavour is very similar, with a dry puckering mouthfeel. Dry, bitter, and lightly funky on the finish. Very good stuff.
