Timmermans "Strawberry Lambic"
Brouwerij Timmermans/John Martin - Itterbeek, Belgium
Lambic (ABV 4%)

[Best served in a Flute glass]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a murky plum orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) light pink foamy head that reduced down to a large collar of foam with some really good sticky lacing.

The aroma was all about the strawberries, with a little musty yeast and a hint of bubblegum.

The taste was sweetly tart with a bit of maltiness and a strong strawberry presence throughout. It kind of reminds me of a “Sour Strawberry Jolly Rancher”. The flavor lasted a decent duration after the swallow being mostly of tart strawberries and not much else.

Mouthfeel was light in body and slightly syrupy in texture with a very lively carbonation.

Overall a very sweet and tart Lambic that was mildly refreshing. It’s a brew that would be great mixed with a good imperial stout...
