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.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2015 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

Psytron (1582) - Turku, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Smell of unblended/gueuze lambic, some herbs, vinegar. Hazy lemon colour, small white head. Aroma of vinegar, white wine, mead, sour berries. Some sugar and yeast in finish. Not much coriander to be noted. Sour, finish is somewhat sweet. Fizzy but short carbon. Medium body, slightly oily palate. Pretty much what I expected.

37,5 cl bottle @ home. Hazy yellow beer, minimal white head. Sweet, yeasty aroma of fruits and spices. Sweet taste with a small sour hint. Almost tastes like cider.

Slightly hazy straw yellow beer with white dense head. Aroma has lemon, coriander, Belgian yeast, pear and apple. Slight sourness. Flavor is sugary sweet with coriander, pineapple, apple, orange and lemon juice. Palate is slightly sour, thinner than medium with quite high carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness. Aftertaste has wheat, lemon juice, apple juice, grapes, saddle leather and yeast. Super refreshing, really fruity, great summer beer. A bit cider like actually. Pouring in the sediment doesn’t really affect anything.

Hazy, pale yellow/orange beer with a white foam. Sour lemon on the nose. Very nice sourness in the taste. Crispy, refreshing, lots of lemon. This is a wonderful brew for summer. Highly recommended.

(Bottle, 0.375 - BB 15/07/16, from supermarket, 20150626) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its jhead was medium sized and white. Aroma had coriander, fruitiness and mild tartness. Palate was rather light bodied and dryish with highish carbontion. Flavours were fruitiness, coriander, mild tarntness, tangerine and bitterness. Aftertaste was tart, fruity and bitter. A thin and very fruity brew leaning on lambic side.

Pétillant un peu marqué et goût agrumes un peu trop prononcé à mon goût .. sinon agréable à servir et à boire très fraîche.
