COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Scopey (11954) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Bottle shared at ít Antwaerps Bierhuiske. It pours hazy pale yellow with a medium white head. The nose is lightly tangy, apple, pear and ice tea. The taste is apple juice, light tang, soft fruit, sweet-sour aspect, wheat and light sherbet with a dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Tastes a lot like apple juice really, so not all bad!

Wombata (616) - Kobe, JAPAN - APR 29, 2013
Aroma: lemon, dried orange peel, roast pear and roasted candy sugar. Flavor: lemon, brief appearance of pear and tropical fruit that swiftly turns to green apple, quinine/sparkling tonic water. The lemon, quinine, green apple dominates. Comment: refreshing quaffer, great summer drink that has some complexity.

popery (1947) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 13, 2013
Pours pale gold with a foamy white head. Quite clear. Looks rather fizzy, but some bubbles hang on for a bit. Things go downhill from here. It smells of lemons, floral hops, old stewed vegetables, fruit rot and cough syrup. The lemon note is nice and easily the strongest or my score would be lower. Unfortunately, the rest of the aroma is just off. The taste combines sickly sweetness with lemons and more oddball cough syrup. It reminds me of orange juice concentrate thatís gone bad. Itís not undrinkable, though Iíd say thatís more a product of the low abv. The thought of this beer at twice the strength fills me dread. The mouthfeel is sudsy and oddly gummy, a bit like a sorghum beer. Despite my comments, the beer really isnít horrible. Itís just a rather bad version of what it advertises. It tastes like a combination of two very simple, overly sweet versions of each style. There are some nice notes somewhere in this beer, and thereís an occasional hint of lambic complexity, but the good stuff is utterly lost amongst the muck. Oddly, I kinda liked Timmermanís pumpkin lambic, but this one is a struggle.

ben4321 (5552) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Location: Draft at RnH, 3/26/13

Aroma: The aroma of this one is sweet and fruity, some peach, and some lemon/citrus
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow color with a white head and some fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor is similar to the nose, heavily sweet with just a mild amount of tart/sourness to it
Palate: This one has a fairly light body, maybe a little too much carbonation, but a solid drinkability
Overall Impression: I just thought that this one was a little too sweet. I would have preferred some more of a balancing sour flavor. Itís actually pretty apropos that I drank this today, because even though the flavor of this beer isnít really wine-like, the sweetness is a little reminiscent of an overly sweet white Passover wine.

Leighton (18034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Picked up at Dranken Geers in Gent. Pours perfectly clear, pale yellow with a slight, white cream head. Nose holds some light wheat and tangy lemons. Light sweet flavor, mild wheat, very mellow background white bread, further tangy lemon lemon, light saltiness. Light bodied with spritzy carbonation. Clean finish with understated but firm tangy lemon, faint sweet wheat notes, a bit more salty kick. A lovely marriage between lambic and witbier. In warm weather I could easily knock back a few bottles of this guy.
