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.

Ferris (13189) - 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.

LazyPyro (662) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
33cl bottle. Pours hazy red with a think light pink head. Aroma: strawberries. Taste: sweet strawberry syrup which is nice, not too artificial, but its followed by a slightly unpleasant off-tasting flavour, maybe some malt or another quite sour/tart fruit, not sure. Medium body and carbonation.

Strong strawberry...but also lots of apple overtones. Lambic didn't stand out. Too much wine, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
