Through word-of-mouth I’m told Lambic is sour if you drink it soon after getting it, and sweet if you let it age a little. The only thing Timmermans Strawberry is going to be is sweet, as predicted. It claims to be the best Lambic there is. My experience is limited but when drinks go around claiming to be "the best" they usually mean "the most generic." Neither have I had a great experience with Lambic ales yet anyway, but the flavours here are like a flavoursome, organic fizzy pop with the 4% weight added. I don’t get much beer underneath the slightly clingy, slightly over-sweet strawberry flavour that lets you drink in larger gulps, but forces you to rest it a few minutes each time. I think it’s slightly more obvious in flavour than the Floris beers, and I’d personally approach it as a sunny-day fizzy pop than a beer, which doesn’t have to be a bad thing as it does have (good) flavour (as well as a bit of additive). It still worked on the night though, a rainy night after a frosty, foggy week. A lasting beverage.

.25l bottle @Harry’s
Pours cloudy apricot color with low head. Aroma is strawberry, lollipop, artificial strawberry, malts, candy caramel notes. Flavor is artificial strawberry, melted strawberry icecream, malts, candy, caramel, bread notes. Too sweet and needs more body.

Bottle. Murky mahogny ruby in color, small off-white head. Wild strawberry sweetness and some further sweet notes in aroma. Some cherry vibes too perhaps. Sweetish taste with hints of berries here and there.

Aroma of strawberry, funky notes, sugar, hint of tart fruit. Flavour is heavy sugary sweet and light tart. Too sweet and sugary for my taste.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Meh. A waste of a bottle. I love fruit beers and fruit lambics, but the lack of carbonation in this beer made it feel like I was drinking flat strawberry juice. The lack of any "pop" when I pulled the cork off was a dead giveaway. Aroma was nice. Strawberry Starburst with not much else. Pour was a flat headless, bubbleless dark gold. Taste was nice and big with huge juicy strawberry flavors. The problem was it was completely flat. Not a hint of carbonation. With just a hint of bubbles this would be a good, if not basic, fruit beer.
