Bottle provided by Matt. Pours a rather flat, hazy brownish orange. Nose is ripe strawberry and lightly vegetal. Otherwise, there isnít much going on. Flavor is light strawberry and some yogurt. Itís lightly tart with no underlying acidity. Mouthfeel is its downfall. Itís pretty watery, no much carbonation very light acidity, and a short finish. Captures the strawberry better than other beers Iíve tried, but nothing to really write home. I liked golden canary more in terms of block 15 sours.

Pour is a slightly hazed orangish yellow with a thin white ring. Nose has a fair but of vinegar, faint strawberry, some light oak and vanilla with a touch of musk. Taste is light, strawberry and some oaky barrel. Mushroom funk and fairly tart with a light sour finish and low carbonation.

tap on 8/17/13 - Pours orange with no head and features a prominent brett smell. The flavor is dry with subdued berries. It has low carbonation, a light to medium body, and a slightly sweet, funky finish. Really good.

Bottle from trade early this year. Well, this baby's been in the bottle for a while, and the carbonation faded quite a bit from what I expected. This one is delicate: creamy Gorgonzola funk, light strawberry ice cream, cream cheese, and chardonnay. Very complex, so I think an increase in carbonation would push it to the next level. Still, a very good beer.

Nice super strawberry forward wild ale. Berries dominate with light balsamic and nice sweetness. A bit one dimensional but super enjoyable.

375mL thanks to brainlair and ryan. Flatter, clear bright orange. Ring of white bubbles. Bright nectar fruit, mild caramel, mild acetic pickle, very mild fresh strawberry, . Delicate. Taste has some sweet strawberry ice cream, mild white wine acidity, caramel, creme brulee dessert character. Bright, acidic, very mild strawberry which is nice compared to sticky artificial strawberry.

375 ml bottle acquired via trade. Awesome. Pours a well hazed orange golden hue, firmer haze, kiss of reddish berry tinge and frothy small whitish layer atop dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas are lemony, vibrant sourness and lactic twang. Lemonade, strawberries, a touch seedy with some oak, gentle sweetness. Nice zippy sour nose is quite inviting. Really nice. Initial is a touch on the lighter side, some mellow body. Firmer sourness up front of lemon, strawberry and mellow tart berry hits the palate. Yogurt, lemony, and firmer lactic sourness hits well. Touches of oak, mellow fruity sweetness in my body. Pretty zippy, lactic and tart yet well balanced. Itís got a blast of tartness, some funk and dryness hits the palate into the middle and backend, tart and a bit more mellow finish, touches of berry, oak, cobwebs and dryness. Really well integrated, firm sourness that never gets acetic or overwhelming. Pretty nice blonde with some good sourness, mellow strawberry, dry and growing funk into the finish. Pretty nice beer. Fresh, light, tart, and funky. Nice beer with some nice qualities, no intense or awe inducing elements but a nice firmer strawberry and some yogurty, lactic feel. Nice.
