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.

larsga (6240) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2014
Small white head. Hazy yellow body with light carbonation. Sugary-acidic cider and wood aroma with mealy strawy yoghurt notes. Sweet-acidic earthy plastic taste with mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish candy and flour aftertaste with wooden fruity notes. Interesting and quite nice. Drinkable. (0.25l draft at Schouskjelleren, Oslo.)

malrubius (1768) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 29, 2014
Bottle from Giant Eagle on advertised sale (so I thought it would be fresh...not). Clear gold with no head or lace. I stirred it up to try to make it cloudy and got big chunks instead. Sweet mild funky melony aroma. Very sweet fruity funky tropical fruit and fake sugar with mild spicy finish and lingering sugary cloy. Nine bucks down the drain.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Bottle at home. Pale gold with a medium white head. Interesting beer. Quite a different aroma than what I’ve had recently, fruity and a little sour. Flavour has a big fuck off dob of lemon sherbert, banana, finish is a little dry, a little sweet and a little sour. I liked it.

Muggus69 (1231) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2014
375mL corked & caged bottle BB 20/09/14 Pours a slightly hazy orange body, with a big fluffy white head - no as over-zealously excitable as you’re average lambic mind. Roused up a bit of chunky yeasty(I hope!?) bits on the 2nd pour - can’t hurt. Certainly has lambic elements to the nose; natural yoghurt, cheese, dusty hay, citrus rind, with subtle earthy spice, freshly crushed coriander seed & dried orange peel. Carbonation is somewhat restrained, comparatively. Light bodied, nice refreshing citric acidity, off-dry in style, which gives the texture some weight. Some white sugary sweetness upfront tends to give flavours a different edge, as opposed to a drier style. Tends to lean towards more creamy cheese and sweetened yoghurt character, orange & lemon juice, light cereal wheat, subtle earthy spice. Remains spicy on the finish, low bitterness, acidity kicks in to create a dry finish. Quite enjoyable. Certainly a change from the bracing acidity of a full-blown Lambic, but obviously lacks the finesse and complexity - like the idea though, blend of unique Belgian styles.

daje (2556) - NORWAY - APR 25, 2014
On tap at Schouskjelleren, december 26th 2013. Clear ligh golden body with a tiny white head. Funky aroma with lemon, spice and hay, taste is slightly sour, mildened by a sweet artificial fruit taste, with notes of straw and grass. Refreshing finish, although overall I believe I’d be in favour of a less sweet version.

mfp13jr (149) - Glenville, New York, USA - APR 17, 2014
Pours out golden with a tight white head. Smells of sour and apples. Lightly sour with a background of fruit.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2014
[Bottle] Pours a fizzy yellow color with a distinct haze to it. Lemon, acidic tartness and subtle wheat malt sweetness in the nose. Taste is of more lemon, grassy notes, green apple and white wine. Lively carbonation. Nice and light.

PriorL (1982) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2014
APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, no foam. NOSE: rather fruity, some wheat, apples, lactic even. TASTE: quite some sugar, decently sour, little fruity and quite refreshing. Quite the good beer!

AngelVanDick (21) - NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2014
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

jinroh (397) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2014
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?
