375ml bottle pours a pale reddy brown color without any head. Mild strawberry and medium sourness. Overly carbonated so as a bit of a soda taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle thanks to bytemesis! Pours semi clear red with small fizzy head. Nose is ripe juciy berry and some toasty wood funk, soft vinous fruit. Taste is crisp juicy tart strawberry, some sour cherry, soft round oaky funk, well balance acidity. Finishes with jammy strawberry, light sweetness, dry oak, and some light rustic funk. Delicious, these guys do strawberry sours better than most.

Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy amber light nut brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is sweet, strawberries, cider. Flavor is quite sour, more than you’d expect from the aroma. Oily on the palate, lingering tartness in the finish. Nice dusty find at Plaza Market.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
General sour smell. Taste is pretty general sour too. I taste some faint tart strawberry, but this definitely doesn’t scream strawberry to me. Low carbonation and medium body.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Extra from VanJamer, thanks! Pours a pretty clear copper with a thin offwhite head that dissipates almost as soon as it appears and leave no lacing (ends up really cloudy by the end of the bottle). Nose is indeed of fruits, strawberries if you want to believe, but mostly of vinegar and reminescent of the nice american red sour beers out there. Taste is really acidic and dry. Not much fruit flavors there except for the same fruity acetic the nose would suggest. It isn’t over the top but ever so close... Body is light to medium and carbonation moderate. Acidity is really refreshing but this isn’t a novice beer, really. Some oak but no wine in sight.. . A touch hard to drink in any significant quantity because of the hardcore acid but I did enjoy it a bit anyway. Not so sure about the Almanac sour program, though...

Pours a hazy gold from the bottle with little to no head or lace. Aroma of strawberry, sour, funk, awesome. Taste is super sour with strawberry hints and lactic tartness all the way down. Wow, this is pretty damn awesome.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
color caoba claro, rosado, con espuma marfil ligera. Aroms de frutos rojos, la fresa es evidente, con tonos ácidos agradables y madera equilibrada. Cuerpo denso, ligero dulzor de inicio que pronto da paso a una intensa acidez, redonda y afrutada, con final seco y largo que se une con un maravilloso regusto ácido afrutado. Excelente.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mild cloudy strawberry pour. Aroma is strawberry creams, mild funk. Taste is tart and fermented strawberries, strong citric sour, very mild bready/buttery flavour. Finish is just tons of citric sour. Overall, interesting and drinkable sour, but not a game changer.

Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Pour is a slightly hazy reddish orange. Beautiful pinkish highlights. Small white head. Nose is slightly candy like. Some fruitiness but difficult to discern strawberry in particular. I don’t really think of strawberries as having a distinct aroma. Taste is initially tart with a fruitiness lasting through. My wife says it is metallic but I am not getting that. Only a light chest thumping acidity. Very well balanced. I like.
