Copenhagen Beer and Music Celebration Boston: pours bright red with a big white head. Aroma is strawberries, wood and wine. Taste is quite sour. Loads of wood and berries. Deep and complex. Alcohol well covered. Tasty as always.

Ok...maybe as a female child of the late 80’s this has ruined me, but the combo of oak and strawberry smells and tastes like my plastic play kitchen bakery set. I can’t get into this. Maybe it’s good. But I taste and smell plastic, like sour bandaids. Haunting me. Lovely memories, but I don’t want it in my beer. Hazy brown red. Mouth is sour tart. Tap

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Keg at Citizen Burger Charlottesville, 4/20/16. Hazy red-bronze, thin creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of tart berries, funk, oak, whiskey, vanilla. The taste is oak, lacto, funk, bright and tart strawberry, vanilla and plum. Medium bodied, lingering tartness, a bit phenolic. Nice.

Nose is pleasant. Super sour. I f I had to guess I'd probably say strawberry is the fruit it was aged on. Pretty cool that the strawberries come through on the taste and would have someone actually guess it. Very, very acidic. Bites the hell out of the tongue. Very good beer. If you like sours! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dmac (5589) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Draft at Arlington. Poured a hazy pink with hardly any head. Aroma and flavor are loaded with acetone. Begind that is a solid jammy strawberry, toast, lemon sourness. Nice body, medium to fuller with strong carbonation and a lingering acidic burn. Solid.

bytemesis (6723) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy deep orange, large off white head, dissipates slowly, decent lacing. Aroma starts a bit of nail polish, dust, must, strawberry. Flavor is better, but still a bit of acetone, plenty of strawberry, light plus tart, medium funk. Medium body.

solidfunk (7612) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2016
Strawberries and sour plum. Hazy brown pour with ok head and lacing. Tangy finish. Some light citrus. Should be a sour not Belgian strong.

egajdzis (6101) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Hazy brown color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, wood, nuts, strawberries, brett, bacteria. Taste of caramel, spices, wood, strawberries, and a tart finish.

Mep3222 (1273) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - APR 8, 2016
This gets classified as a Belgian strong ale, but really should be a sour. The base is a quad, but it is then aged and soured. Aroma is quite nice, slight sweet strawberry with some lactic sour. Taste is a lactic sour, maybe 4 of 10 sour, strawberry slight sweetness with a bit of a band aide funk finish. It is all lactic until the finish and then a weird band aide funk. Not malty, which I would expect if it is the Four. Full flavored and complex, but body doesn’t seem like a quad. Really quite nice overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Very complex aroma, with sour and tart notes mixing with molasses and a good amount of strawberry. Quite sour, pushing slightly into acetic territory, but still very good. Strawberry aroma and molasses mouthfeel. One complex beer!
