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.

Bottle. Murky brown/amber with a thin white head. Aroma is kinda gross. Weird artificial strawberry candy with banana and bubblegum. Taste is similar with a bandaid finish. Gross.

Vells (876) - Riga, LATVIA - APR 13, 2015
Cant call this artificial juice, but its quite cheap syrupy drink anyways. Thou some decent strawberry presence, quite sugary. Sweetish with light tartness. Not the worst example, but definitely not the best. Average one time try.

12-26-2014: I got a small bottle (15 cl), but I liked the beer quite well. The strawberries are nice

As to smell and taste a glass of strawberry juice. Slightly bitter which fills the upper part of the mouth briefly. Great beer. Or is it a beer? That is the question. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

chinchill (2631) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2015
On tap at The Brass Tap (Tampa). Hazy strawberry-amber with a durable head ad decent lacing. Aroma: Sweet and fruity with a hint of tartness. Somewhat vaguely strawberry. Flavor: nice sweet/tart balance. Good strawberry flavor. Feel: smooth and soft carbonation; medium-light body. O: good for style but vcould be more complex and a touch more tart.

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.
