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.

Sample in a flight at Ale Yeah! Pours a slightly hazy yellow, with a small, off-white head. The aroma is lemon zest, hay, just a hint of bananas, and some light barnyard, musty funk. The flavor is citrusy and sugary sweetness up front, with light sourness coming more forward toward the finish. Still, the sourness is mild, and very well balanced. Light body, very bubbly and effervescent, crisp, and clean. Overall, this is an outstanding mix of styles that blends wonderfully. Very clean, vinous, and refreshing, without a bit of harshness. Just a clean, refreshing, delicious, and very unique beer.

Hazy blond colour, medium carbonation. Interesting experiment: geuze mixed with a witbier. Aroma of sour apples, lemon and sugar. Sour with sweet finish.

hazy green gold, thin white ring. Lime soda nose, so much sugar. Flinstone Flavor is soda, tons of citrus and sugar, reminds of iced tea. Thin sticky high carbonation end.

ClubGonzo (4021) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2014
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a cloudy straw-hued yellow body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is quite strange: lactic sour tones, cereals, faint citrus and hints of wheat and yoghurt. Taste is sweet wheat, yoghurt-like lactobacillus-tones, citric peel and mild straw, butterscotch and grains in the back. Light to medium body and medium to high carbonation. Not entirely sold on the combination of lots of wheat paired with lactic sour tones (which really created a lot of strange stuff in there), but at least this beer is pretty damn original.

Absolutbeerginer (23) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Bière de fermentation spontanée fabriquée à base d’ingrédients pour bière blanche belge (de froment). Billante, jaune clair doré, peu de CO2, mousse blanche, peu persistante. C’est ma découverte du jour! Au nez, on perçoit des arômes acides de fruits, de pomme verte et de citron et de fût de chêne (son lit de maturation). Goût acide et sucré. Faible en alcool (4,5%). Elle ressemble beaucoup au cidre.

On draft at the brass tap, poured a golden color with aromas of brett, hay, light fruit, a touch of banana and some funk. Flavors are the same light on the palate and very crushable.

I don’t know why this is rated so low, it is an exceptional beer, and wonderful example of the style. I first tried it on draft in Belgium, but am now drinking a bottle in Japan. The draft is certainly different from the bottle, but both are superb, don’t look at the rating and make up your own opinion.

milo91hd (109) - Lecce, ITALY - JAN 1, 2014
Bottiglia 37.5, bel colore arancio con un cappello di schiuma fine poco persistente, all’odore richiama subito le tipiche lambic insieme a limone e note di frumento, al palato attacca leggermente acida, corpo medio con una carbonazione bassa, molto beverina, per me è buonissima

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Das Bier im Glas sieht dank fehlendem Schaum aus wie eine Urinprobe. Und es riecht auch, als hätte man in jenes noch einen Spritzer Orange getan... Der Antrunk ist sauer. Im Hauptteil kommt ein süß-orangiger Ton hinzu, der mit seiner Süße die Säure sehr abmildert. Insgesamt ist es aber doch sehr wässrig. Der Nachgeschmack ist sehr kurz, der Süßstoff macht sich durch seine chemische Note deutlich bemerkbar. Herbe ist überhaupt nicht wahrnehmbar. Das erwähnte Orangenaroma schmeckt ziemlich künstlich - und insgesamt schmeckt das ganze wie mit einem leichten Schuss Essigwasser verdünnte Fanta!
Eine Bewertung dessen ist fast unmöglich - theoretisch hätte es in allen Geschmacks-Bereichen Null Punkte verdient! Einfach nicht zu empfehlen!
Test vom 10.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 0,2,5,1,12,3 - 3,00

Blonde voilée, effervescence forte de visu, légère au palais, mousse blanche abondante. De prime abord, bizarre mélange de blanche et de lambic où le malts de froment est assez présent contrairement au suret du lambic. Au final, ça ressemble plus à un soda avec du jus de citron ajouté et adouci au sucre qu’à une bonne bière du genre...
