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.

Well, this won’t be too popular with hardcore sour fans as it doesn’t have alot of the deep funk and tastes a bit sweetend. But it was a freshing beer and not too bad overall. Standerd Witbier characteristics didn’t shine through very much. Serving: Bottle

Quite a simple witbier actually. I was expecting some lambic sourness, but I could not taste any of that. A missed chance, this could be really special.

gunnar (5296) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle from Matkroken, Stokka. Pours clear golden with a big fast diminishing white head. Weak grainy and citrussy aroma. Taste is fresh lemons, light sour soapy and a sweet touch at the finish. Strange but rather good.

Old rating rerated 21.06.2014, 0,375l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is kind of fresh citrusy, lemongrass, coriander, yeast, citrus, soda powder, citrus peel, hay, sorrel. Taste is kind of artificial fresh sour-ish (and sweet) like sour winegum candy, soda powder, sour apples, unripe berries, citrus acid, lemongrass. Little bitterness, dry acidic mouthfeel. Nice enough, very fresh and easy drinking.

tmrmwel (959) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with an finger thick airy head. Aroma is fruity and tart with coriander, lemon, hay, apple vinegar, as well as nice bretty notes. Medium body with average carbonation. Flavour is somewhat tart with notes of yeasty apple cider, as well as sweet malt and notes of vinegar and brett giving a lingering fruity sour finish. Splendid drinkability, and a perfect thirst quencher for the summer.
