COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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".

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.

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.

Cask at WoSF 2014. Cloudy flat gold pour. Aroma is quite horrible, burnt rubber and urine, really funky, super cheesy. Flavor of vomit, burnt rubber, sulfur and solvent. Really horrible, I couldn’t do much more than taste a few milliliters at once. Ughh.

At WE of spontaneous fermentation 2014. Hazy yellow/golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma of urine, rubber, sulfur and hay. Taste isn’t much better with a lot of rubber and sulfur along light acidity and hay. Medium body. Flat. I usually like unblended lambic, but this one is atrocious. The Oud Beersel Oude Lambik we had at Grote Dorst a couple of weeks ago was so much better.

Not a very interesting lambic, but even an average lambic is a great beer. Freshly sour, with just a mild tardiness. Interesting to only drink the young version for once.

Dorée, quasi pas de pétillance, absence totale de mousse. Boisée, légèrement acide, un rien fruitée... BOF

caesar (7170) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
Tap @ Boelekewis, Dworp, medium sample. Hazy orange color, no head. Aroma is mostly citric acid, hint of lactic acid, bit barnyard and horseblanket, soft fruitiness. Soft sour, slight fruity sweet. Overall mostly citric acid, but very nicely balanced and smooth. Great balance between sweet and sour. Wonderful jonge lambik.

3 oz. pour at 9th Belgian Brew fest at Ebenezer’s. I keep trying Lambic to see if my palate will agree with it someday. Well, going to keep Trying I guess. Cloudy bright yellow / white color. Flavor is funky cheese, sour lemon rind, bitter grapefruit and slightly acidic. Whoa way to young.
