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.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Murky, almost completely opaque amber with a big bubbles foamy, off white head that crackles. Aroma is funky strawberry. Strawberry juice and candy and almost pez-like with some dry cotton funk. Taste is pez strawberry candy, good amount of tartness, some mild oaky funk, musty and cobweb-ish with some tart, finishing strawberry. Dry and tasty. Finishes sharp and oaky, tannic.

Cloudy red-orange color. Although sour, the aroma has jam characteristics, as well as the flavor; strong body, smooth, sour with moderation, astringent final; harmonious and deep.
Wonderful Sour.

Oakes (14669) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
Hazy amber-red colour. Thin head. Aroma is big jammy strawberry. Tart, woody, some phenols that aren’t all that pleasant, and then lots of jam. A bit too artificial for my taste.

Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle ( 2014 Project ) on 7th Match 2016 at a Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting: cheers Mike for this offering. Red hue to the cloudy body, tart and puckering throughout, just a little too sour for me, I like strawberries but with sugar and cream.

DandyWolfFloyd (978) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Aroma - strange odor. Smells like the 80’s electric-trigger race tracks, or melting plastic. Wild yeast, strawberry, and sugar. Appearance - cloudy pink amber. White head about 1 3/4" white, slowly settles. Taste - is slightly sour, Belgian yeast, strawberry under a unique oxidation or carbonation ~ almost comes off as a smoldering melting plastic. Palate - light body, dry fruit, lively carbonation, and a tart strawberry fruit.
