Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
There is no other beer like Timmermans Tradition Lambicus Blanche anywhere in the world. It is made by bringing together lambic with the process used for brewing beers based on malted wheat. By the addition of spices such as coriander and dried orange zest, a beer is created with a light, fruity flavour, deliberately cloudy and subtly spicy. Should ideally be drunk from an authentic stoneware pot.

Pours a deep gold color, initially mostly clear with a white, wispy head. Aroma of cracked wheat, hay, coriander like spice, lemon and a bit of sour lambic yeast.
In the taste, mild tartness, a lemony note from the yeast and wheat, and a light spice and bitterness. Light to medium bodied ale with a semi dry finish. I would think that many early Belgian style sours employed Wheat in their beer, it certainly works very well here. Overall this is a refreshing lambic/sour wit, done right by Timmermans. Very good.

750ml bottled 4/18/2012. Served in a wine glass

Appearance: Pours a golden yellow color with nearly 2 fingers of a white soapy head that dissipates rather quickly to a thin ring. Body is relatively clear but with moderate amounts of suspended sediment. Not much in the way of visible carbination.

Smell: Red apple, spices, a bit of an off putting grainy character and some malt sweetness.

Taste: Sweet and tart with flavors mimicking the aroma. Cider like apples and an odd graininess that's stronger than in the aroma and some background notes of wheat.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium.

Overall: Not undrinkable, but not enjoyable at all. I had this on tap a while ago, and remember it being decent, so perhaps this is just a bad bottle. Although purchased recently, this is going on 2.5 years old, and I'm not sure how this ages, so perhaps that has something to do with it too.
