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.

37,5 cl bottle @ home. Hazy yellow beer, minimal white head. Sweet, yeasty aroma of fruits and spices. Sweet taste with a small sour hint. Almost tastes like cider.

Slightly hazy straw yellow beer with white dense head. Aroma has lemon, coriander, Belgian yeast, pear and apple. Slight sourness. Flavor is sugary sweet with coriander, pineapple, apple, orange and lemon juice. Palate is slightly sour, thinner than medium with quite high carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness. Aftertaste has wheat, lemon juice, apple juice, grapes, saddle leather and yeast. Super refreshing, really fruity, great summer beer. A bit cider like actually. Pouring in the sediment doesn’t really affect anything.

Hazy, pale yellow/orange beer with a white foam. Sour lemon on the nose. Very nice sourness in the taste. Crispy, refreshing, lots of lemon. This is a wonderful brew for summer. Highly recommended.

mjs (5201) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2015
(Bottle, 0.375 - BB 15/07/16, from supermarket, 20150626) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its jhead was medium sized and white. Aroma had coriander, fruitiness and mild tartness. Palate was rather light bodied and dryish with highish carbontion. Flavours were fruitiness, coriander, mild tarntness, tangerine and bitterness. Aftertaste was tart, fruity and bitter. A thin and very fruity brew leaning on lambic side.

Pétillant un peu marqué et goût agrumes un peu trop prononcé à mon goût .. sinon agréable à servir et à boire très fraîche.

seuinoz (156) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2015
aroma is a sour apple smell. appearance is dark yellow with a little bit of lacing with a little white head. Taste of sour apples dominate the beer. Sits well on the palate. Over all a refreshing beer for a hot humid day.
