COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aged in retired wine casks for a little over two years with 126 lbs of strawberries and a slew of wild critters, this beer will continue to develop for years. MERRY CHRISTMAS. Keep at room temp until ready to enjoy. This offering is a labour of love to our loyal Pub Club members.

Handpump pour at brewery. Pours a clear dark copper. Strawberry nose with some light funk. The flavor is more funk than fruit. Great beer. Probably the best strawberry beer i ever had.

From one of the original bottles (different batch from the Jaspers release and I am told a different beer). Pours a deep orange with hints of pink and a creamy head with lots of bubbles. The nose has a vegital note up front with lots of strawberries coming in after. There is a strawberry cream note with a slightly mineraly brett and some citric acid in the back. The taste has the light notes of green vegetable up front, hints of the interesting strawberry cream but lighter than the nose. More acidity with an almost seltzery finish. The strawberry cream lingers in the back of the palate with a medium body, very creamy texture to match the flavor, fost and subtle with a prickly carbonation in the finish. Very different, the berry cream was so unique, maybe lacto?

Thanks to Frank for this... park peach with a hint of pink, quick dissolving head... light aroma, a bit of strawberries, even less tartness, a bit of cream, ok... the taste is ok, a little disappointing, light strawberry on the front, not sweet but the flavor, yogurt in the middle, the finish, is off, dandelion... a little past its prime, ok

From one of the original bottles. a translucent gold-amber pour, small bubbled but lasting 1/2in white head. Nose of light citrus, lime, cabbage at front, then wonderful strawberry ice cream in back. Flavor is thin, mineral with singing carbonation, light strawberry cream in back, stinging carb and yeast aspects, lightly eggy. Bit past its peak now, but the strawberry ice cream is a dream when it emerges.

On handpump, at brewery. Pours a clear dark gold to copper body with a fizzy one finger light beige head that ran to a thin ring of bubbles. Big huge strawberry nose with some light funkiness and some soft maltiness. The flavor is more funk than fruit, which is nice, the strawberry is more of a light accent. Dry funky finish with some light cereal grains on the back end, especially as it sat. There’s a nice lingering bretty note as well. Mouthfeel is dry with some light woody notes and nice cask carbonation. Pretty damn good. Glad I finally had a chance to try it.

Maltzilla, I dont know how you do it. But my god you did it! What a treat, thanks Diego. Pours a light amber color, small head. Aroma is just perfect. Tart strawberries, light vanilla and cheesecake...yes cheesecake. The damn beer tastes like a tart strawberry cheesecake. Just amazing. Damn am I lucky to have tried this one. This was the original bottled version. Thanks again Diego.

From a corked 750. Thanks Steve! Strawberry up front then hints of funk hit your nose. The palate is more strawberries in a light fruity, barnyardish funk, well balanced with cheesecake in the back palate. Its crazy! Specially the fact that it is all delicate and not overpowering on any of its flavor profile. I could drink this forever.

Had this 5/7/10 on-cask at Bullfrog (Jaspers release day) A-Body is a beautiful transparent light golden amber (with a hint of pink) hue. Served with a beautiful 1-2 finger soapy white head that, of course, has perfect retention and leaves plenty of lacing all the way down the glass. S- Initially what comes through is a big dose of very sweet strawberry. Upon further inspection there is also a big tart strawberry presence and below this is a slightly acidic tartness. T-Quite tart strawberry on top of sweet strawberry, on top of juicy strawberry...initially this is just strawberry, strawberry, strawberry. The finish adds a splash of vinegar and acidic tartness to the strawberry brigade...and, surprisingly...a sweet bready yeast lingers with the strawberry...strawberry shortcake? P- Awesome. A wonderful, smooth, medium weight creamy body with minimal carbonation. O- This brew offers a ton of strawberry as well as a mild sour/wild component as well. Good brew overall and excellent on cask. Serving type: cask Reviewed on: 05-10-2010 21:45:13

Cask at Bullfrog called Tim And Kathy’s Strawberry Fields. Clear apricot orange with a creamy white head. Nose is strawberry and lemon with leathery funk. Medium light with soft carb. Tastes of underripe strawberry, green melon and peach pit. More funky than sour. Dry yeasty finish with lemon peel. Strawberry preserves emerge well after i’ve finished the glass adding a final sweet note.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2010
On cask at the Jaspers release. Pours a hazy golden amber orange color with light golden orange hues when held to anlight source and a two finger frothy white head withexcellent retention, only slowly fading into a pasting cap. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind. Slightly funky earthy aroma with lots of fresh juicy strawberry notes. Slight lactic creamy funk and subtle malt backbone. Nice dry bretty effervesence. Lighter end of medium body with nice funky crisp dry bretty efervescence. Lots of juicy fresh strawberry with subtle oak, lactic cream sourness, dry Brett and subftle malt. Nice balance of earthy funk and luscious uber fesh berries. Not as sour as I expected but it is perfectly balance and extremely drinkable.
