Bottle. Belgian Strong? nope. Sour? yes. A strong berry aroma, with a bit of grape character. pour is a hazy reddish color. large white head with tiny bubbles. Taste is a lightly puckering, slightly peppery berry mix up. Definitely tart, but the fruit character comes through without any off flavors (had a lot of bad strawberry beer lately). Some tannins and wood character with a light astringency come through after a few sips. damn good.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 27, 2015
On tap @ SLL. Pours a hazy brownish amber color with a one finger beige head that fell slowly to a ring. Strong aromas of bourbon in the nose along with some notes of strawberries and sourness. The taste is very similar to the aroma but the flavors are a bit stronger. The bourbon really stands out in the overall taste but isn’t overpowering; there are notes of light strawberry and a mild sourness along with a solid malt base, hints of oak and brown sugar through the finish. Lighter body, moderate carbonation, and a semi dry finish.

375 ml bottle from lukaduke shared with the group. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart/sour strawberries, oak, some acidity, hints of the abv show through, very tasty, curious why this wasn’t a sour as it has noticeable tart/sour character.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 Bottle shared alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy complex fruit, wood and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet & sour flavor with medium to heavy fruity sweet & sour finish and a small bite of alcohol. Standout brew.

375 ml bottle to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a very hazy dark apricot with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; tart and mildly oaky with notes of strawberry and some mild, well-balanced sweetness in the background. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouth-puckering mouthfeel that’s on the medium-full side body-wise. Good stuff!

Ionlyrate5s (103) - New York, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Orange amber color, and very very light carbonation and that was perfect for this particular brew, fruity candy aroma very pleasant. Flavor of malts and very slight candi sugar and great slight strawberry fruitness and cherry skins. Great finish!

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Bottle from Schiller. Pours cloudy amber with a thin off white head. The nose is sour strawberries, funk and vinegar. The taste is berry skins, light funk and ripe strawberries. Medium bodied. 4.0

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
An experimental twist on the Allagash Four barley wine, matured on oak and macerated with strawberries. Stable, off-white head, misty bronze colour, aroma very much dominated by strawberries - not my favorite scent and therefore not quite to my liking, notes of wood, banana, marzipan, medium dry sherry, sour cream, cognac, passion fruit. Complex taste with an interesting game between sweet and sour, as in an ’oud bruin’, fruity yeast, strawberries coming through but less strongly than I feared, woody and vinous, candi syrup, sourishness wins the game and renders a dry, woody, resinous finish. Interesting and complex, a lot going on here.

375 ml bottle shared by TwoSipDip at RBSG - thanks, Tony! Pours a cloudy rose-tinted color with a small off-white head. Notes of strawberry, dry grains, lemon, minerals, oak, yogurt, and doughy malts. Light-medium bodied, with a fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Very nice.
