Bottle at home thanks to Kraddel, copper pour with sudsy head. Nose is apples and lots of sugar. Tastes of apples, musty, candied sugar, hint of sour. Very sweet not cloying though.

*Old rating, best before 10/07/04. Süßliches Bier mit ein Bisschen Restsäure. Sehr süffig, nicht zu süß, stimmig, könnte aber noch ein bisschen mehr Säure vertragen. Nett.

An okay lambic, more sweet than I’d like, but the subtle funk is pleasant. Golden and crisp.

Fruktig och man känner på aromen att ölet är sött. Första smaken är mer syrlig av äpple men övergår snabbt till en sötare smak.

Een heel lekker biertje, goede geur, mooi kleurtje en een heel lekkere smaak zoals het hoort te zijn

MarcoDL (2516) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2014
Sweetened version of an already quite sweet lambic beer. I don’t understand this need, especially for Timmermans beers.

Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett. Clear, amber colour. Film of fine, white head. Aroma is baked apple. Brown sugar. Light, bready, yeasty tartness. Taste is soft toffee. Baked apple. Palate is fluffy soft. Light oiliness. Finish is light sweet, and light tart. A beer of contrasts. Nice beer.
