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.

Inbreak (2403) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2014
Old rating rerated 21.06.2014, 0,375l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is kind of fresh citrusy, lemongrass, coriander, yeast, citrus, soda powder, citrus peel, hay, sorrel. Taste is kind of artificial fresh sour-ish (and sweet) like sour winegum candy, soda powder, sour apples, unripe berries, citrus acid, lemongrass. Little bitterness, dry acidic mouthfeel. Nice enough, very fresh and easy drinking.

tmrmwel (1058) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with an finger thick airy head. Aroma is fruity and tart with coriander, lemon, hay, apple vinegar, as well as nice bretty notes. Medium body with average carbonation. Flavour is somewhat tart with notes of yeasty apple cider, as well as sweet malt and notes of vinegar and brett giving a lingering fruity sour finish. Splendid drinkability, and a perfect thirst quencher for the summer.

JulienHuxley (3472) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle at WoSF 2014. Clear pale white pour with white head. Aroma of coriander, quite spicy, light wheaty graininess, a bit too spicy. Taste is spicy, very light lambic character, grainy, very light tartness. Palate is light, dry, soft carbonation. Unfortunately a bit bland, otherwise very easy drinking.

tom10101 (3085) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle (375 ml) @ WE of Spontaneous Fermentation 2014. Clear pale yellow with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is lemony with coriane and acidity from the wheat. Taste is also lemony with a nice acidic touch and coriander. Light body. Cola-like carbonation. The lemony aspect and the acidic presence are quite refreshing/quenching. Tasty beer. The coriander isn’t overwhelming.

AtronSeige (702) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 22, 2014
Aroma: Coriander, horse blanket, leather, wheat, light pepper, Appearance: Hazy straw body. Small thin white head. Lacing. Flavour: Orange zest, coriander, tart, orange, Palate: Medium-light body. High carbonation. Overall: WOW! The first lambic that I will happily drink liters of! Definite white beer flavours with higher tartness/sourness and subtle, yet complimentary lambic flavours and aromas. 375ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 16A. Witbier
