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.

10cl sample at the Zythos Beer Festival (Leuven, April 25th 2015). A lovely surprise to have this white lambic beer. It has a terrific wheat flavour, with added fruit aromas. A nice combination resulting in a soury, malty, lemon brew with lots of freshness and subtle spices.

Pullo @ Prisma Limingantulli. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, noin sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on kuin kevyt belgiale olisi ryyditetty brettalla, hiivan nahkaisuus on niin selvää. Alla on kevyen belgialen tai witin sitruunaisuutta ja yrttisyyttä, myös Karmeliet tulee mieleen hedelmäisellä piirteellä. Maku jatkaa samaa linjaa, hyvin sitruunainen ja yrttinen (huomattavasti enemmän kuitenkin sitruunainen) pohja, jonka lisänä tuntuu lambicmaista nahkaisuutta. Suutuntuma on hyvin kuiva ja raikas, hieman ohuen puolelle kallistuva. Hieno lambicmaisia vivahteita sisältävä witbier, joka on etenkin tuoksun puolesta todella monipuolinen. Loistava kesäjuoma myös raikkalta ja kuivalta suutuntumaltaan. Todellinen yllätys.

Pale yellow, clear. Aroma is dry and a bit woody. It’s fresh, tart and wheaty. The sourness is well balanced, not overpowering.

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.
