Through word-of-mouth I’m 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 don’t 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 it’s slightly more obvious in flavour than the Floris beers, and I’d personally approach it as a sunny-day fizzy pop than a beer, which doesn’t 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.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a chalice at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a gold amber color and a medium sized white head. The aroma is a blend of strawberry yogurt and jelly. The taste has a mild strawberry flavor with a slight tartness and a dry finish.

Bottle at Beerdock Leek. Pours a clear red colour with a fluffy light pink head. Aroma of strawberry, slight wheat and subtle yeast. Taste of strawberry, some wheat, slight yeast and subtle tartness. Light bodied and a slick texture. A sweet, strawberry finish. Another solid fruit lambic from Timmermanns. Sweet, subtley tart and a hint of wheat and yeast.

Hazy reddish. Pinkish stable head. The aroma is strawberries, vinegar, starch. Light body. The flavour combines dry lambic notes with syrupy fruitiness. Low bitterness. Pretty drinkable.

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.

reebtogi (6378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2017
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 (16486) - 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.
