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.

This is an interesting brew. Pours a bright and hazy pale yellow with a big, white head. The aroma has the sour notes of lambic with the coriander and esters of a wit. Light earthen malt notes up front with a musty yeast profile and light coriander and citrus zest notes. The finish is mildly sour with a dry astringency.

rayaron (356) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear light yellow with small white head. Strong aroma of coriander, very fruity (orange, peach, apricot), sweet, sprite-like. Sweet-sour flavor, citrus (orange, lemon), coriander, sugary, sweet-sour dry finish, a bit artificial. Light carbonation, light to medium-bodied.

DSG (6337) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle sample at a Beer And Beyond sour beers tasting at their shop. Cloudy yellow. Aroma of coriander and lemon-lime. Sweet flavor with light tartness, sprite, a spicy touch and a bitterish note in the finish. Quite light-bodied, lively carbonation. Refreshing. Not very beer-like, but refreshing.

Alengrin (2463) - 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 (1802) - 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 (508) - 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.

Cunningham (4918) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2014
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.
[Bottle from a trade with Sigmund]
