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.

I donít 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, donít look at the rating and make up your own opinion.

Bijl (146) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2016
Goudgeel, helder, witte minimale schuimkraag. Aroma: Spicy koriander, lemon, brett wilde gist, ook iets Belgische gist, licht zuur en onrijp groen fruit. Een hint van lemon frisdrank. Smaak: Veel Lemon, iets grassig, Koriander, groene appel, sinaasappelschil, annanas, licht zuur, brett achtig, witte wijn. In eerste instantie erg zuur, daarna komt er ook veel zoet doorheen... bitter eigenlijk niet. Veel koolzuur, drinkt makkelijk weg, Afdronk is zuur, zoet. Ik weet niet precies wat ik er van moet denken maar vind hem niet vies.

Swaroga (2023) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 16, 2016
375ml bottle. They say itís cloudy but itís completely clear golden with medium head. Aroma is green apple, grains, sugar, chemical bubblegum, peach and some perfumes. Soft and watery mouth feel. The beer has a very simple taste ...semi dry with semi dry finish. Like a cheap, cheap wine to get drunk but you wonít because itís only 4,5% of alcohol. I see no interest in this "beer". Nothing happening here. Maybe itís a bit more healthy then a cheap, cheap wine ?

Bottle. Golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus and light funk. Flavour is weird and ends up a bit bland. A bit sour, sweet, light fruity, slightly spicy. The sweetness works against the sourness of the lambic, so it ends in a messy blandness.

Hazy yellow, small white tan. Aroma: corrainder, citrous, flower. Light body, medium to light sourness. Citrousy flavor, with some corrainder and yeasts. Nice combination between two styles, but thereís some soapy notes in it.

Powo metne z grubopecherzykowa poana ktora szybko znika. W aromacie czuc nuty pszeniczne i jakby mydlo(?). W smaku fajnie kawaskowo z lekka nuta slodyczy. Czuc cytryny, goryczka minimalna a piwo ma wysokie wysycenie. Fajnie orzezwia i pasuje na gorace i upalne dni.

sjogro (2267) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy bright yellow with white head, lot of active bubbling in the glass. Sour dough, grass, grapes, soapy dish water, lot of lemon, fresh coriander. Light sour, light minerallike saltiness, sweet underneath. Medium body, very lively carbonation, almost like a soda.

Maakun (3397) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle at home. Slight hazy yellow golden with medium short lasting white head. Lemon, coriander, sour grapes, some unripe fruits, sweet cake dough, hay, salmiak (though not salty, maybe more a spicy rubber?), some other spices, light condensed milk. Taste is medium sour and almost medium sweet. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. I expected his to be a horrible artificial mess, but itís actually quite drinkable and interesting.
