We hope to be able to offer other vintages from this exquisite blender in 2011.Karel Goddeau is the Master Blender at the Geuzestekkerij De Cam in Gooik.Karel is revered among Lambic lovers as one of the finest blenders working today. Many people have longed to see De Cam’s lambics in the U.S. and we are very proud to be able to finally offer them. We could wax poetic about the 2003’s leathery, herbal, citric, woody, vanilla, buttery qualities—but the only way to truly appreciate it is to taste it yourself.The one quality we must emphasize is that this is an OUDE LAMBIEK (old Lambic) NOT Geuze. There is some very light sparkle to the beer but it is not intended to have the high champagne-like carbonation that Geuze aims for. Oude Lambiek is like a fine white wine and its stillness is a mark of this. DeCam’s Oude Lambiek is aged for a minimum 3 years in oak casks and bottled in 2003 (altogether 10 years of maturation!).There are only 1800 bottles in the entire United States. You will see them turning up for special tastings at the best specialty beer bars coast to coast. Quite literally, when this product is gone it can never be made again.
A mighty twelve Vanberg & DeWulf beers were named to the 2012 list edited by Chris Schonberger at Complex Media “100 Beers to Try Before You Die”. One among them is DeCam.
