Cam Lambiek 1 jaar oud

ABV: 5%
Origin: Gooik, Vlaams-Brabant, Vlaanderen

De brewery and museum, Gooik

De Cam is a blender rather than a brewery, buying in lambics from Boom, Girardin and Lindemans, so I’ve no idea where this beer was actually brewed, but it was matured for at least one summer in one of the Plzeňský Prazdroj casks in Gooik and tasted as a free drink on a visit there during the 2011 Toer de Geuze.

This was an excellent lambic, a slightly hazy pale amber colour, almost completely still with hardly any head. A lovely nutty and apply aroma, only slightly acidic, heralded a dry but fruity and complex palate, with that smacky wet plastic ‘funky’ note, developing quite intense sour apple flavours. The finish was tart but notably matured, with a lingering lemon note and some firm cereal malt coming through.
