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.

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.

1/3 pint, 6° North. Pours medium hazy yellow with a thick white head subsiding quickly. Scent is mild wine and resin hints from yeast. Taste is quite dense with sour flavors, a bit of Heather and honey, as well as nice lemon zest. Still mild. Finish is a little sour and clean. Great.

ArtificialCyst (152) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Aroma: Barnyard, wheat, vinegar, coriander, sour. Appearance: Head disappears with hiss, color is pale. Taste: Dominating sourness, quite tart, also sweet, some wheat notes, lemon, vinegar. Palate: Body is thin, carbonation is medium, finish is sour and sweet. Generally to sweet and too much vinegar notes. I love very sour beverages but this is quite tiring. And btw, it is much more a lambic than a witbier.
