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

TET (2008) - FINLAND - MAY 27, 2015
A yellow beer with a medium and white head. Aroma has wheat, some earthy sourness, grapes and low coriander. Taste is sour, some grapes and other fruits, some coriander. Medium sweetness that’s reducing the effect of sourness, less would be better. Medium bodied, sparkling carbonation. Quite good beer, nice sourness with coriander, would be better with less sweetness.

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.
