Alengrin (4331) - BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2014
Commissioned for a family of strawberry growers in Lochristi in eastern Flanders. Irregular, coarse, ’dirty’ yellowish foam, colour lingers between orange and copper, lightly clouded. The nose gets lots of strawberry, but not entirely genuine (to say the least) - in fact, it reminded me more of strawberry jam or even strawberry icecream. Lemony accent too, caramel malts, bit of orange peel and unfortunately a lot of rotten egg (H2S) further ruining an already initially unattractive aroma. Taste a soft, sweet fruitiness, obvious strawberry jam or juice (though less artificial than I expected based on the aroma), thin mouthfeel, not much maltiness to back it up, undercarbonated too, finish a bit watery, only slightly hoppy. Clearly out of balance and not enough ’backbone’ to support the over-presence of strawberries.

MiP (15172) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2008
Bottle, 5.5%. Distinct strawberry aroma. Cloudy orange colour, hint of red. Very big white head with a hint of red. Sweet flavour, but not overly so. Distinct strawberry flavour and not too bad. Dryish finish, reminds me slightly of aspartam, but is probably fermented fruit sugar.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy, reddish amber with a creamy, off-white head. Sweetish but rather fresh strawberry aroma. Medium body with a soft mouthfeel and lightly sweet notes of strawberries. Almost no bitterness. A very decent and not too sweet fruit beer. 180108

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2008
Cloudy golden color. Quite nice fruity aroma, delicate, and some yeast too. Good Belgian Ale, sweetish, with a light fruity touch (wild strawberries). Pleasant.

Bottled. Hazy golden. Extremely sweet with overwhelming strawberry-jam in both aroma and flavour.
