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.

Hazy amber golden colour, white head. Aroma of burned plastic, fruity strawberry, funk. Sour flavour, funk, strawberry, rubber, burning plastic. Finish plastic, strawberry, quite fruity. 2013 project. Promising beer, too bad of the burned plastic notes.

Benzai (9646) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle @ ZZT XI. Hazy orange color, medium sized fizzy white head that disappears almost instantly. Initially the aroma leans towards burning rubber, but when that subsides a lovely soft strawberry aroma is what’s left. Taste is very good as well: soft strawberry, softly sour, other red fruits. Very subtle and very good. Lovely fruit beer.

Bottle @ ZZT11. Hazy peach colour with no real head. Smells slightly burning plastic, strawberry, fruity, sour. Tastes sour, very fruity, strawberry, Quite nice. Medium body, medium to heavy carbo, but it works.
