COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This NW style sour is a crisp, refreshing wheat beer that was barrel-aged for seven months then additionaly aged with strawberries for another eight months. Bright, sweet strawberries and light candy notes greet you in the nose. A light tartness and berry sweetness intermingle on the palate, giving way to a light, sparkling fresh berry tartness in the finish. It is better as a breakfast beer or a dessert? You decide.

03.10.2015, 0,75l bottle shared @ home:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head, slightly hazy dirty orangy color. Aroma is strange sour-ish, fiber plastic, bark, oak, sour grass, unripe strawberries, minerals. Taste is sour-ish dry, sorrel, mild vinegar, unripe strawberries, raw rhubarb, minerals, oak, berry skin, soda powder. Medium bitterness, dry acidic mouthfeel. Nice, but the plastic aroma is a bummer...

Poured into a plastic cup showing orange almost tomato skin colored with fluffy white foam. The nose shows strong notes of sweet and jammy strawberry. The palate is moderately carbonated and full bodied. Same flavors of jammy strawberry on the palate but slightly too tart. Good presence of the jammy strawberry flavors on the finish and the linger. Depending on your palate, the jammyness is a bit too far from the natural fruit for my tastes.

Dark amber color. Strawberries and funky tart nose with some sweet maltiness creepiness. I feel like the flavors are competing with each other. Lingering strawberry finish.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours hazy reddish orange with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of fleshy strawberries, sweet notes, candy and tartness. It has a medium body that is crisp with mild carbonation. The flavor starts with strawberries, paper, woody and tart / sour aspects. The finish has lots of grainy oak, sourness and is lighter on the fruit.

Bouteille 75cl, shared with the SHAPE crew, thanks Mark. Big gusher and a shame considering how ridiculously expensive these bottles are. Orangée sur un léger voile trouble, col fin blanc. Arôme offre un plaisant bouquet de fraise terreux qui reste fort plaisant sans être surfait, et rappelle un peu la version de Jester King sans être pour cela aussi pointue. Le côté barrique est moyen-faible avec un côté aigrelet modéré. Palais garde ce profil terreux de fraise avec une petite note aigrelette qui ne tombe pas dans le surfait à la Hansens. Retrouve aussi un fleuri plaisant et un léger picotement en toute fin de bouche.

Bottled. Pours slightly hazy amber with an average white head. Aroma of strawberry notes, funk and barnyard. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

26/IX/15 - 75cl bottle @ Borefts 2015 (Bodegraven) - BB: n/a (2015-1318) Thanks to the person who brought the bottle!

GUSHER ALERT! Man, that bottle gushed and sprayed more than half of it’s content all over the place...
Clear orange to amber beer, small aery off-white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sourish, dirty, urinal, skunked, very dirty. Really, this just smells awful. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very sour, dry, skunked, dirty, unpleasant. Aftertaste: very sourish, vinegar, slightly fruity. Really, how is this even called beer. Well, I guess I’m alone on this one...

Thx! for sharing. Sampled draft @ Borefts 2015. Day 2. Bright golden little white head. Nose is peach, mango peel, oddly faintly lactic. Taste is big on bitter mango peel, citrus, herbal, lots of fruit, quite a bit of it is peel, bitter pine hops in the finish. Light & easy body. Fun, easy & enjoyable.

Bottle. Light-brownish pour, decent carbonation. Extremely tart throughout, not an overly puckering sour but just very tart the whole way through. Can definitely taste the strawberry, but not a fake strawberry flavor.
