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.

On bottle tasted on the festival at buggenhout. A very special beer. Combination of Lambic and White beer. Really not a good taste.

A 375ml corked and caged bottle with a cork date of 2015 and best before date of 10th May 2017. Poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass. It poured a cloudy golden yellow colour with a two finger bubbly white head that dissipated quickly but left great lacing. Aromas are lightly funky, candy sweetness, orange, orange peel, lemon and hints of mango and pineapple. Tastes of orange peel and honey sweetness which is surrounded by a touch of lemon, light sourness and light funkiness. Crisp, light bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Overall it’s overly sweet in my opinion, but has a nice aroma. The taste is actually fine but I would have preferred it if the sweetness was toned down or even soured.

Very very interesting and good to drink. Feels a little soda like at times, but the sweetness is ok and the sourness too. Good beer, on tap at De Koffer in Groningen

Bottle, pours light hazy yellow with a white head. Light sour aroma with lemon and wheat. Taste follows with sweet apples, light brett notes and artificial lemon taste. I think a witbier/bitter lemon mix could taste something like this.

35 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Gall&Gall Houten. Clear golden with a white head. Fruity lambiek aroma with some orange. Bitter taste with a sour touch. Dry finish. Very nice combination of a lambiek and a witbier. This way I even like witbier.

Zlotta (2268) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2016
On tap at ’De Paas’. Slightly hazy, straw yellow with a thin, frothy, white head. Sweetish, sourish-fruity aroma of lemon, gooseberry, pineapple and some wheat. Sweetish, sourish-fruity taste of lemon, pineapple, gooseberry and some wheat, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little tart finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent and a little astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Not bad!
