Arrives a hazy pinkish color with a well-formed 1/2" high raft of white foam perched atop. Retention is quite good.
Smell is, not unexpectedly, strong on the strawberry, sweetness and malt.
Taste is sweet, almost too much so, strawberry and malt. Nearly the Jolly Rancher in a glass experience.
The only complaint I can lodge with the fruit lambics is they tend to be too sweet. I like them, but because of that overabundance of sweetness they really are just dessert beers. Know that going in and you'll be fine. Expect otherwise, possible problem.
Body is medium, effervescence is light, just wafting across the tongue. A solid lambic but not a standout.

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.
