A sweetened fruit lambic - I can't knock this too hard for being what it is unapologetically.

Gives a really nice pour into a flute glass. Slight off-red color, pinkish foam that even leaves a bit of lacing.

Aroma? Strawberry jam and Sweet-tarts candy.

Hmm. Almost reminds me more of the Sam Smith fruit beers than even a Lindemans sweetened lambic. It's all strawberry and Sweet-Tarts. Sweet, lacking much body. Decent little tart note that at least for me helps drinkability.

Basically a soda pop with a very low ABV. Amp up the "beer" qualities a bit, and this may score somewhat higher. Still, for a soda-pop, it's a pretty enjoyable soda-pop. I'm OK with stuff like this, because a) ladies who don't like beer often like this stuff and b) even I can't drink Saint Lamvinus everyday.

3.66/5  rDev +11.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: a standard 330mL brown bottle with an old-school Belgian label. Purchased from Leura Cellars.

Appearance: pours a hazy amber-pinkish with a natural brown tinge. A fairly creamy one-finger head drops fairly quickly to a patchy cap, limited lacing.

Aroma: quite a sweet strawberry note - natural strawberries, not that awkward artificial smell. Some Belgian lambic yeasts and earth notes manage to balance the sweetness out.

Taste: follows the nose quite closely - a lovely natural strawberry with earth and Belgian wild yeasts. Very refreshing indeed.

Aftertaste: a lemon citrus tartness joins the strawberry on the finish. Very nice.

Mouth feel: a moderate body with light- to- medium carbonation.

Overall: quite a nice lambic - very natural strawberry fruits that aren't as overly sweet as some, being balanced with earth malts and lemon citrus tartness. The price being over AU$130 a case of 24 (2014) is a little prohibitive however.

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.
