Brouwerij Timmermans Strawberry Lambic - 4% ABV
Here is an odd one. As a rule, I don't particular care for fruity beer. Lambics are not all that high on my list either. So when Mrs. Vivant insisted that I try this fruity concoction I must admit that I flinched. Now don't get me wrong, I fear no beer .... huge hops, no sweat .... high gravity .... bring it on .... Stella Artois, well, let's not get silly. But fruity beer? Sigh, OK, pass it over.
The lambic is really bubbly when you pour reminding you of a sparkling Rose'. Strawberry tartness hits you right on the tongue from the first and stays as the primary flavor all the way through. Not overpoweringly sweet but with very little alcohol this is more like a fizzy Kool-aid than beer. The funny thing is that I kind of enjoyed it, but I am quite sure that it is not something I would have ordered or will ever order again. But if you are challenged to try a fruity beer, pick this one.
