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.

Wheat, spices on nose. Just a hint of funk, citrus. Overall quite weak nose. Body is light, refreshing. Dry and a bit sour, with lots of citrus, some yeast, hay

Pours light, almost clear with only a bit foam and slight carbonation. Aroma is subtle, a bit sweet and fruity. Tastes like lemon lemonade or lemon cake. Slightly sour - but very drinkable and extremely thirst quenching. Is there really any alcohol at all?

Bottle at home from Dicey Rileys
Hazy burnished gold with slightly tart, banana esters and subtle corriander on nose. Fairly sweet initially, medium body and carbonation, tart yet sweet finish with touch of orange zestiness. Think spiced berlinner weisse with added sugar.

My first Lambic beer ever. I have been curious what a Lambic would taste like due to the unique brewing proces. It didn’t disappoint. A Hazy golden color with a small white head. Unbelievable fruity aroma, wich makes you almost afraid to take a sip. The taste also very fruity, but not as overwhelming as the aroma would suggest. It also has a definite sourness to it that compensates the fruitiness and makes for a very interesting taste. Definitely some apricots, apple, citrus and a grainy taste to it. A beer to enjoy slowly and you think you taste all kinds of tastes, it keeps you curious. Very interesting beer.

Wit na brettach, już jest ciekawie. W aromacie mnóstwo cytryny, trawy cytrynowej, ale i lekkie nuty stajenne, lekka kolendra i imbir, wszystko ładnie skomponowane, ale cytrynowy kwasek góruje nad resztą zdecydowanie. Podobnie w smaku, jest kwaśno w przyjemny, cytrusowy sposób, gdzieś w tle lekko mdła pszeniczna nuta poparta kolendrą. Dość pijalne a na pewno orzeźwiające.

Bu à la pression en 33cl blanche et pas mal de mousse peu de choses à dire peu sucrée en début de bouche et avec une attaque ensuite sur le yaourts et la pêche en sirop.

Bottle. Mostly clear golden color with a thin head. Aroma of sugary apple, apricot and caramel. Medium acidic and bitter taste with some sweetness.

Sample in a flight at Ale Yeah! Pours a slightly hazy yellow, with a small, off-white head. The aroma is lemon zest, hay, just a hint of bananas, and some light barnyard, musty funk. The flavor is citrusy and sugary sweetness up front, with light sourness coming more forward toward the finish. Still, the sourness is mild, and very well balanced. Light body, very bubbly and effervescent, crisp, and clean. Overall, this is an outstanding mix of styles that blends wonderfully. Very clean, vinous, and refreshing, without a bit of harshness. Just a clean, refreshing, delicious, and very unique beer.

Hazy blond colour, medium carbonation. Interesting experiment: geuze mixed with a witbier. Aroma of sour apples, lemon and sugar. Sour with sweet finish.

hazy green gold, thin white ring. Lime soda nose, so much sugar. Flinstone Flavor is soda, tons of citrus and sugar, reminds of iced tea. Thin sticky high carbonation end.
