Through word-of-mouth Im told Lambic is sour if you drink it soon after getting it, and sweet if you let it age a little. The only thing Timmermans Strawberry is going to be is sweet, as predicted. It claims to be the best Lambic there is. My experience is limited but when drinks go around claiming to be "the best" they usually mean "the most generic." Neither have I had a great experience with Lambic ales yet anyway, but the flavours here are like a flavoursome, organic fizzy pop with the 4% weight added. I dont get much beer underneath the slightly clingy, slightly over-sweet strawberry flavour that lets you drink in larger gulps, but forces you to rest it a few minutes each time. I think its slightly more obvious in flavour than the Floris beers, and Id personally approach it as a sunny-day fizzy pop than a beer, which doesnt have to be a bad thing as it does have (good) flavour (as well as a bit of additive). It still worked on the night though, a rainy night after a frosty, foggy week. A lasting beverage.

As Strawberry Lambicus, bottle 25cl. from a local Vomar supermarket, poured into a stem glass. Strong fruity nose, cloudy pale to medium amber, small fizzy off-white head, quite stable, good lacing; aroma strawberry, canned strawberries, bubblegum, candy sugar; taste heavy sweet, slightly sour, strawberries, light tart, bubblegum; light body, sticky texture, lively carbonation; mixed feelings very sweet but saved by that light sourish tart touch.

330ml bottle pours a pinkish red colour with a finger of fizzy pinkish head that dissipates quickly leaving only a few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is strawberries with a hint of yeast. Taste is a light strawberry tartness with a fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with generous carbonation. Overall, seems to be more syrupy than fresh fruit, making this a bit too sweet for my tastes.

Visual: Aluminum foil covered. Pours opaque cloudy scarlet red with a nice 2cmm frothy head, 1mm layer of retention, clusters of very active micro streams.

Nose: huge authentic fruity sweet strawberry puree, magnificent. (lvl-10)-pungency

Attack: tangy-tart, subdued sour, fruity sweet

Mid-palate: (lvl-6-sweetness), real strawberry-tangy puree, background barley malt

Finish: wheat malt rough palate dry, strawberry exhale

Summary: The barley tastes very generic and is mainly covered up by the strong fruity strawberry presence. Decent strawberry flavour, but it comes across as very candy-esque, straightforward, and uninteresting after a few sips. Wicked aroma though.

Ferris (14155) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2016
Bottle - Milky and creamy strawberry. Reddish orange with a creamy pink white head. Sweet syrupy strawberry, some creamy notes and a finish that is a bit too long.

Piwo metne w kolorze pomaranczowo czerwonym z niezbyt obfita biala sredniopecherzykowa piana ktora bardzo szybko znika bez sladu. W aromacie i smaku slodkie truskawki z kompotu z odrobina kwasnosci. Wydaje sie byc dosc sztuczne w odbiorze, za slodkie z niezbyt przyjemnym posmakiem gumy balonowej. Wysycenie na srednim poziomie, kwasnosc niezbyt intensywna i malo swieza.

Draught. Pours a cloudy light pink with a fading off white bubbly head. Aroma is of strawberry, very sweet. Taste is of more strawberry, not much else, lightly tart. Oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation.

Some strawberry with some burnt notes. Not as bad as everyone has rated it but not among the better lambics. Only light lambic bretta aroma here. Seems like they have a market for this as its sold everywhere. Bottle.
