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.

Aroma of sweet strawberry. Red-white head, Taste lots of sweet strawberries, almost sirup. A little sourness. Reminds me of a far better version of a sweet swedish cider. I see this being a good summer drink for people who don’t really like beer.

phfyysik (384) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 13, 2016
Pours hazy red/pink/beige with small top. Looks like rotten strawberry jam mixed with water. Aroma is a bit unpleasant - some strawberry, cottage cheese, but also some soap and excrement. Strawberry comes up in taste, some apricot and cheese as well. Bitter after won’t stay long. Strange beer.
