Zlotta (2354) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
0.375 l bottle from Carrefour (Gent) as Timmermans Tradition Faro Lambicus, best before September 2018. Clear, golden amber with a medium large, frothy, rather quickly diminishing, white head. Sweetish-sourish, fruity aroma of lemon, gooseberry, rhubarb and slight hints of barnyard. Sweetish-sourish, fruity taste of lemon, gooseberry, some rhubarb, brown sugar and a touch of barnyard, followed by a short, slightly tart finish. Thin to medium body, smooth and a little effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Not bad actually, not too sweet, some lambic is still recognisable and its definitely highly quaffable.
