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.

mcberko (14059) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2016
375mL bottle, pours a hazy golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out faded barnyard funk, some leather, and wheaty notes. Flavour is rather sweet, with medium funk, some leather, spicy yeast and residual candied sweetness. Nice blend - it works well together. But doesn’t taste like the lambic part of this is authentic.

TheKernOwl (179) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2016
A real rar(W)ity: a wit with sour smell+taste. Nose has some coriander, orange peel and if you sniff REALLY hard, some earthiness. However, it is mainly about the sour, in taste too, ending with more lemons than you started. Quite ’wet’, and somehow not quite as funky as you’d expect when you read “lambic” on the bottle. But fairly interesting nonetheless.

AnG_BrgNor (483) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2016
Aroma of coriander, yeast and some spices. Even the aroma is sour. Taste is mostly sour. Not easy to detect anything else than yeast and some citrus. Very sour. Not my kind of beer.

Riktigt fräsch. Påminner mycket om cider i karaktären. Perfekt på sommaren. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy yellow color with a bit of white foam. Aroma has coriander, lemon zest, orange and a bit of honey sweetness. Taste starts sweet and sour, like lemon candy. You also get the witbier spices. Body is light and fizzy. Overall it’s more like a sour witbier, not really a lambic. I don’t get any of the specific lambic funk or farmhouse notes.
