ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle Pour. Pours a murky reddish brown color with a wispy white head. Aroma is of brett, funky strawberries, and a little yogurt. Flavor is very close to what you’d expect with the aroma, sweet at first with a little sour finish. A hint of molasses up front giving way to slightly sour and acidic strawberry on the finish. Clean and smooth mouthfeel. Nice!

bytemesis (6446) - 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 (7219) - 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 (6004) - 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 (1190) - 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

thepatrickman (714) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 19, 2016
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!

mike5326 (1565) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Poured from a tap. A coppery orange color, small white head. Mild sour fruit and yeast aroma. Medium body with a nice tart yeast flavor and a medium finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerman6686 (6169) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2015
This poured a murky purplish brown with a beige head. Aroma was of brown sugar, dark fruits, lots of vanilla oaky character, chocolate, pretty complex. Flavor just as complex, deep caramel malts, brown sugar, strawberry and raspberries, vanilla oak and chocolate, awesome.

Dark purple brown pour, slight white foam, light strawberry aroma, dark fruit. Taste is quite dry and not that sour.

JStax (4976) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2015
375 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a darker brown with a red tint. The aroma has nice strawberry character, but also hits hard with sourness. The tadte is sweet strawberry and lasting sourness. Really tasty beer. Medium to high carbonation with a big body. When the cork came loose on this beer, it bounced off the ceiling!

Bottle. Nice vino, barrel, apricot, bread and sugar notes. Well blended. I liked it a lot.
