A curious beer to say the least. 375 mL corked & caged, Produced on 04/27/2022.
Delightful, golden pour with a better than expected head and some pretty good lace. A thin film settles on the surface of the beer too.
Very light in the mouth which of course does a couple of things. Firstly there isn’t much depth here, but secondly it gives a lot of drinkability.
There’s a little apple/cider note in the nose, and a similar element in the tastes. Obviously it’s massively sweeter than one might expect when reading the word Lambicus on the label and knowing it’s a Timmermans beer, but the research reveals the weird combo that’s in play. The witbier lambic combo has to be unique, and it certainly makes for a beer that has little to be with either style. I suppose sweetened lambic might be the closest. It gets slightly drier down the bottle, but it still feels like a sweetish cider rather than anything that one would describe as “dry” per se. Finishes with a very gentle tartness that wasn’t much present prior.
Light apples, some very light spice (as per the Wit) and perhaps? a touch of orange … not sure.
Glad to have tried it, but for me this is strictly a novelty. This was still very drinkable, if somewhat lacking in much depth.
