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.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2014
Unusual variation in the sweetened lambic-derivative league, intended as a hybrid between (sweetened) geuze and witbier. Hazy yellow blonde, snow white head, fruity but in an artificial kind of way, sugared, with ascorbic acidity as in lemonade, coriander, apple, some vague tartness but no real lambic character, wheaty. Thirst-quenching alright and more interesting than Timmermans’ sweetened geuze or kriek beers, but to be avoided by those who are after ’real’ lambics.

ShivanDragon (1796) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2014
helder oranje met schuimige witte kraag. aroma floraal, citrus en mooie zuurtjes. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, redelijk zuurtje..... wat gewoon heerlijk.... maar wel met een iets beperkte complexiteit en duidelijk flink aangezoet om het wat aangenamer/gangbaarder te maken. het glazuur blijft daardoor iig op je tanden. iets droog in de mond. geen extreem zuur bier maar gewoon lekker ! medium body

PapaVillum (503) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2014
37,5 cl, flaske, 4,5 % ABV, BB 21/11/14, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 6. november 2014. Let ravfarvet belgisk og ufiltreret Wit med fin tætskummende hvid skumkrone, som svinder til 1/2 cm. Aromaen er vildgær, lettere grapefrugt, stikkelsbær, citrusnoter og appelsin. Sur og sød, men domineret af førstnævnte. Very pleasant. Dejlig sur-/sødlig smag med syrligt aftryk. Smagsbilledet starter en anelse surt, bevæger sig over i sødme og lander i det sød/syrlige hjørne. Overraskende velsmagende. Mellem krop. Kulsyren er massivt tilstede og antages til et stykke over medium. Meget skummende og perlende mundfølelse og en ganske tør eftersmag, som efterlader svælget næsten tørlagt. Tynd til oily konsistens. En frisk øl med sød/syrlige indtryk, men modsat dårlige efterligninger, stadig en øl. Glæder mig til næste, som skal introduceres til min kvinde.

Unclear yellow color with a fine white head. Ok lacing. Fresh aroma. Citric, apples, oranges and some spices. Medium body. Fine balance between acidity and sweetness. Average carbonation. Nice fresh flavor. Citrus, oranges, yeast and some wheat. Nice one.

EdKing (1981) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
On draft in Mother Kellys. Pale yellow beer, with large foam white head. Nose is lemon citrous, zesty, musty, sour, light grain. Taste is salty, sweet musty and sour lambic flavours. Quit a tangy and unusual mixture of flavours. Musty and tangy rather than clean on the palate.
