people hate on timmermans for no reason. i mean, sure, its a level or two below the best of the best lambic types, but its a very approachable version, a possible gateway to the real good stuff, and more widely available than some of the really special ones. it serves a role. this one is very strawberry heavy, to the point where the yeast and grains are less detectable. similar in that regard to the framboise they do. pale red tint to the pour and a nose of fresh strawberry jam. it is very sweet, which detracts from drinkability, but the fruit is authentic, if a bit overdone. great carbonation cleans it up pretty well though, and in general i like this much better than some of the other common strawberry bombs coming out of belgium. i think this is a cool beer, and one that may turn people on to more tart and acidic traditional lambics, although this one is lacking much of that character. fun beer, not world class cellaring beer. thats okay sometimes.

Not sure why I even ordered this beer....
Pours a pinkish golden with a small white head that dissipates rather quickly. Interesting, curious.
Aroma of strawberries, candy and hay.
Taste is similar to strawberry jam that has been put into beer. Usually, I would hate this...but for some reason I'm finding it rather tolerable.
Mouthfeel is light bodied and moderately cleansing.
Overall, I didn't have high expectations. So, the fact that I found it rather curious and I finished it, says a lot. Definitely liked it better than I thought I would. Worth a try.

A: Peach colour, an orange with a pink tinge, slightly cloudy, medium low carbonation slight pinkish white head fades fast.
S: Strawberries and strawberry jam, reminds me of a strawberry filled donut as the scent is quite sweet. A deeper sniff reveals the sour lambic quality. Sour, slight balsamic vinegar.
T: Lovely sour lambic quality much more present in the taste. Sweet strawberry jam, sour slight vinegar, slight wine, then the unmistakable soured fruit quality. Complex musty barrel quality as well.
A resemblance to strawberry yogurt.
M: Medium acidic body, lots of soda like carbonation.
O: Really like this, my first strawberry lambic. Would go well with fruity desserts and creamy cheese. Complex and interesting.
