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.

750 ml corked and caged bottle. Bottled on 5/30/12. Pours witbier pale yellow with a small white collapsing head that leaves a skiff of foam. Aroma is funky like a lambic (why is this in the witbier category again?), with horseblanket and pungent vinegar pretty strong. Taste is mostly sour and acidic with a sweet edge. Has more in common with a lambic or a plain old sour--other than the appearance, this bears little to no resemblance to any witbier I’ve ever had. Tastes good, whatever it is.

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 there’s 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 (2138) - 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 (2923) - 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 it’s actually quite drinkable and interesting.

mcberko (12456) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2016
375mL bottle, pours a hazy golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out faded barnyard funk, some leather, and wheaty notes. Flavour is rather sweet, with medium funk, some leather, spicy yeast and residual candied sweetness. Nice blend - it works well together. But doesn’t taste like the lambic part of this is authentic.
