There is no other beer like Timmermans Tradition Blanche Lambicus anywhere in the world because it is the only white lambic beer. By adding spices such as coriander and dried orange zest, a light, fruity beer is created. It is subtly spicy and deliberately made cloudy. Should ideally be drunk from an authentic stoneware pot.

On cask, Tasting Set at La Becasse. 4.5% Blanche is a slightly opaque light gold. The nose is a wheaty coriander & orange peel. Sharp carbonation the taste is cream, lemons and coriander. Very tasty.

tfredvik (1435) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2015
Clear, pretty pale golden body with a white head that reduces to a thin layer, good lacing. The aroma is rather strong, fruity and a bit sour. I get lots of tart, generic fruits, some apple and a modest funkiness. Moderate flavour of tart fruits, white wine, apples, citrus, light funk and hints of wheat. The sourness is very subtle, and can’t quite match the rather sweet taste. Light-bodied, dry and with a moderate carbonation. An unusual beer!
[37.5 cl bottle, enjoyed 14 months before BB date, from Gulating Arendal]

Smell of unblended/gueuze lambic, some herbs, vinegar. Hazy lemon colour, small white head. Aroma of vinegar, white wine, mead, sour berries. Some sugar and yeast in finish. Not much coriander to be noted. Sour, finish is somewhat sweet. Fizzy but short carbon. Medium body, slightly oily palate. Pretty much what I expected.
