Through word-of-mouth Iím 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 donít 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 itís slightly more obvious in flavour than the Floris beers, and Iíd personally approach it as a sunny-day fizzy pop than a beer, which doesnít 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. Pours brown-red with a small head. Aroma is fruity, strawberry. Taste of strawberries, with little acidity. An average beer.

Aardbeien zijn mijn favoriete vrucht en er zijn goede bieren hiervan, maar dit vond ik tegenvallen.

This is a Lambic, and as such I expect it to be a sweet savory and I was not disappointed. Timmermans consistantly delivers a good product worth searching out in the cooler every time.

Murky brownish purple with no head. Little aroma. Taste overly sweet. Possibly the worst of Timmermans.

olsvammel (3034) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers in Gent. Fruity smell with a strawberry-ish aroma. Taste of berries, a bit like strawberries. Sweet with a very light tart taste and also slightly salty. Not as refreshing as similar beers.

Has a remote taste of real strawberry, thatís something for these kind of beers. Apart from that itís not really special.

You have to love strawberries to enjoy this beer! It was a delicious fruit beer and my first from this brewery.
