A family tradition. And one that has been perpetuated for more than 300 years going all the way back to 1702 when Timmermans started brewing Gueuze Lambic in Itterbeek. Just a few kilometres from the centre of Brussels. At the time, the brewery was known under the name of ‘The mole brewery’.
Today, Timmermans that has been part of the ‘Finest Beer Selection’ of Anthony Martin since 1993, has succeeded in retaining its authenticity. And expertise while simultaneously benefiting from the unique expertise of ‘Martin’s Finest Beers Selection’.
This beer’s presence is a noticeable result of a powerful nose that initially imposes its authority, followed by an equally imposing tinged flavor of nobility with a very stylish character. Languid, velvety tones accumulate, with natural roasted malts. There is a definitive, generous largesse to the beer’s sweetness, from real cane sugar, with a dark ruby majestic aftertaste. Its status ranks well above beers in its category.
