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.

Unclear light orange. Fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet strawberry dessert. Light and zippy. Mild tartness. Tastes and smells like strawberry candy. Red gummy candy. Finishes fairly clean actually; not cloying. This worked nicely as dessert.

Light fruity aroma. Reminds me of fruit by the foot or something similar. Taste is like the watered down version of the aroma. Carbonated, fuzzy, fruity, light and easy to drink. Just not a ton there. Very light.

33cl foiled bottle. Red/pink hue to the pour. Aroma is strawberry jello. There is some funky lambic hiding in there, esily noticeable, somewhat tart, but overall a nasty strawberry flavor.

Ahh what a refreshing nice summer drink. If you like strawberry and fruit beer. Go buy it. Otherwise keep away. They tried very successfully to make a strawberry beer. It taste strawberry and strawberry is all you get in your nose. Not cloying in any way. Fresh and nice. I loved it.
