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.

10cl sample at the Zythos Beer Festival (Leuven, April 25th 2015). A lovely surprise to have this white lambic beer. It has a terrific wheat flavour, with added fruit aromas. A nice combination resulting in a soury, malty, lemon brew with lots of freshness and subtle spices.

Pullo @ Prisma Limingantulli. Kaatuu tulppaaniin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, noin sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on kuin kevyt belgiale olisi ryyditetty brettalla, hiivan nahkaisuus on niin selvää. Alla on kevyen belgialen tai witin sitruunaisuutta ja yrttisyyttä, myös Karmeliet tulee mieleen hedelmäisellä piirteellä. Maku jatkaa samaa linjaa, hyvin sitruunainen ja yrttinen (huomattavasti enemmän kuitenkin sitruunainen) pohja, jonka lisänä tuntuu lambicmaista nahkaisuutta. Suutuntuma on hyvin kuiva ja raikas, hieman ohuen puolelle kallistuva. Hieno lambicmaisia vivahteita sisältävä witbier, joka on etenkin tuoksun puolesta todella monipuolinen. Loistava kesäjuoma myös raikkalta ja kuivalta suutuntumaltaan. Todellinen yllätys.

Pale yellow, clear. Aroma is dry and a bit woody. It’s fresh, tart and wheaty. The sourness is well balanced, not overpowering.

Cloudy pale yellow, thin head. Mildly sweet, coriander, wheat, orange peel, mildly peppery, slight sourness. Light, sweet and sour, bit fizzy, medium long finish with citrus fruityness. Light and refreshing, maybe bit too sweet but ok.

Nice blanche but I still like Hoegaarden better :) It is a typical Timmermans with its slightly sour taste.

thellgren (392) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 14, 2015
Small bottle @ Bier Central, Antwerp. Is this a witbier similar to lambic or lambic similar to witbier? Who cares, this is Belgium. When you are thirsty, this would be an excellent choice if it is available.
