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.

Countbeer (5614) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2010
Bottle: 2 finger quick disappearing white foamy head. Slightly hazy golden yellow color. Smell is a mix of sour and sweet with hints of yeast, wheat, light spices and malts. Taste is a good mix of white beer and geuze: sour, sweet, light sugary and just slightly more bitter. Sour and bit sweet are very present but not too dominating as they are pretty low and well balanced. Hints of wheat, lemon and yeast. Refreshing white sour beer.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Well carbonated dark gold color with faint white head and good lacing. The aroma is unlike any other whitbier I’ve ever tried. I could smell an earthy spiced aroma from the glass from 2 feet away. Closer up, I smelled something sweet and sour like the last faro I tried. The body is light and fairly sweet with a spicy and almost vegetal character - like a tomato. Not in a bad way. Different, drinkable, and something worth drinking again.

At The Rake: Lambicus shandy all the way. Totally downable. An interesting twist.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Bottle. A - Light hazy golden. Lower than average white foamy head. Low retention and little lacing left over. S - Funky sour and tart citrus. A bit of wheat smell giving it a clove bread smell too. T - Funky tart and sour lemon and wheat flavors. Taste kind of like a lemon drop or lemon heads candy. Some hints of other golden fruits. A bit of spice is also present, think wit or hefe. M - Medium to light with a slight puckering effect. Also slight drying at the finish. D - Not bad, the sweet and sour somewhat balance each other out and it is refreshing in a way similar to lemonade with it being slightly puckering and sour put you want to take another sip. Notes: Interesting and unique beer. A combination of a wit or hefe and a lambic. Also provides a touch of funky flavors. Worth a try if you can find it, but probably not for everyone. It won’t blow you away, but a good way to provide a new look on beer.

Pours nicely into a chalice, okay head, carbonation, bright yellow with haziness. Aroma of hops and fermented grains, citrus, lemon. Taste is very tart lemon and hops, dry finish. Lots of sweetness on the back end. Sip slowly. Pretty good.
