Thanks, Aaron! Served in a Block 15 tulip. Poor shows a beer that is undercarbonated and quite hazy. No head formation. Nose is pretty mellow. Flavor is nice with mild strawberry and a hint of acidity. Very mild funk. Super light and drinkable, even though itís lacking in carbonation.

Poured into a tulip. 3.25 A: Mildly hazed yellow orange color. Not much carbonation and I didnít really get a head to form. 3.5 S: Balance between acidity and funk. Barnyard funk with horse blanket, hay, and dry wood. Strawberry is there, but only in mild-moderate amounts - gives a nice tartness to it though. Also some wildflower and apple orchard funk. Tangy lactic acid complements the strawberry fruitiness. Pretty good. 3.25 T: Taste for the most part follows the nose. Mix of acid and funk. Barnyard funk listed above with earthy apple orchard. Again strawberry is mild, but adds a bit of tartness. Lactic tanginess. This has the complexity, but itís missing depth of flavor. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Could use a lot more carbonation, but itís not that big of a deal. Moderately creamy. 3.5 D: Itís a decent beer, but thereís a lot better options out there. ★ 872 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 15, 2013

Bottle. Thanks jack. This was pretty good. Pours golden with a light rose hue. small off white head. Nose is sweet and tart strawberry, light wood, and booze. Flavor is similar. Much less tart than expected, with the base higher alcohol golden ale kind of taking over. Just found it a bit too boozy. If it was 5% it may have shined brighter for me.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 12, 2014
2011 poured from 750ml bottle to glass. Clear amber hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is big strawberry, vanilla, straw, lactic, peppercorn, slight earthy. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a tartness and finishing with a clean slight peppercorn spiciness. Overall this brew is really nice.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2014
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.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - NOV 3, 2013
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.

Bottle from box aroma lifts. Offered via camping toss @ nova Scotia lunkx caat release. Clean fresh strawberry in soft creamy yogurt. Moderate lactic sourness. Pleasant clean strawberry integrated super nicely, which can be rar for this fruit it seems. Great balance. Clean. Soft leather funk. Chitl brew.

Strawberry fields forever! Nose is Bretty yeast, mild citrus, meh. Palate brings it home: lemon, strawberry fruits, fantastic. Yeah, I'm a fan.
