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.

Nice blanche but I still like Hoegaarden better :) It is a typical Timmermans with its slightly sour taste.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015 Small bottle @ Bier Central, Antwerp. Is this a witbier similar to lambic or lambic similar to witbier? Who cares, this is Belgium. When you are thirsty, this would be an excellent choice if it is available. I also tried the second time in Finland: 37.5 l bottle from supermarket. I guess this is lambic spiced like witbier. You have lots of citrus, more than in Hoegaarden in your tongue and mouth. Afterwards your throat feels dry. That’s the effect from dry lambic. Something you will not get from hops, but only from sour beer.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2015
375 ml bottle. Crystal clear golden. Small white head. Sour nose. Not much that resembles a witbier. Appears more like a watered down lambic. Not bad, it is decent, but nothing special. A little dull, but a nice thirst quencher if a little acid is what you are looking for.

On tap at La Becasse. The look is definitely like a blanche: white with a solid head. Very light acidity (missing the real lambic), more on the sweet side. Refreshing, but lacks complexitity.

Finally a lambic beer I enjoy (because of my tastes, of course). This is because the typical acidic taste is not present. Other than that, it’s a classic sweet lambic beer.

Odeur et goût de lambic pas trop prononcé. Pas acide comme une geuze. Goût de pomme. Pas intéressant.
