bursprak (1378) - Aarhus, - JUN 21, 2014
750 ml bottle. Thanks Aaron! Pours hazy orange-pinkish with small lacing on tap. Nose has strawberries and even more strawberries with a light funk. Taste has as other mentioned before some light off flavour. The strawberry feels a tad artificial and some light plastic notes. Lowers the score a bit but still a fantastic sour.

JBPortland (1183) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 4, 2015
750ml bottle pours light orange with a slight pink tint and small finger of head. Nose is big juicy sweet Smuckers strawberry jam, some acidity, light funk. The nose was great. Taste starts out with medium high crisp acidity, initially some sweet jammy strawberry but transitions to a weird plastic and funk on the back end. Finishes sweet and acidic, there is some nice jammy strawberry but in the end the weird new plastic notes were a bit too strong to fully enjoy this.

b3shine (6595) - Indiana, USA - NOV 13, 2014
750 ml bottle to stemmed taster (shared by Dogbones). Looks good; a very cloudy apricot with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of strawberries and funk with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. More strawberry on the nose though. Good, not great.

[ Bottle ][ ½ of 75cl ][ Tasting ][ Trade ][ Snifter ][ 9.24.14 ]
Hazy grapefruit flesh, tepid after a thin white ring. Strawberry nose is more sweet than seed, dusty manure bordering on meaty currant dominates, heavy green burnt plastic overpowers and mutes the experience. Flavor is less expressive, heavy citric sweetness, low strawberry, light meatiness. Burnt notes emerge mid in the waxy body, plastic finish with light currant sourness. Full body is too heavy for flawed profile, comes off forced and offensive.

cpetrone84 (1705) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Pour is dark hazed deep amber with a tight white head. Nose has a strong burnt plastic phenol, strawberry cream underneath that off aroma. Taste has the same off flavor, manure, burnt hair, strawberry cream, dusty hay. Body is lighter, soft feel, nice carb.

kbudd19 (887) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from Doug, thanks man! Cloudy yellow pour with minimal white head. Aroma is oak, sour funk and a bit of strawberry, something off. Woa that is infected, nail polish, it burns, so horrible, rubber. Drain pour.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2014
750ml bottle. Poured a cloudy/murky amberish color with a white head. Floaters / chunks (strawberry chunks?). Definitely strawberry, fresh and not artificial. Others were getting a stronger plastic in the aroma - I could see some, but it did not bother me and I really liked the way the strawberries were done. Nice semi-sour finish.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle... Muckfest 2014... Hazy peach-colored pour with a small, creamy off-white head. The aroma is mostly about Huge strawberry greatness, intermingled with a faint note of plastic. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with restrained carbonation. The flavor is very sour and acidic. Loaded with fresh strawberries and woody funk. Crisp, tart finish.

Bottle. Cloudy light amber pour with a thin ring of head. Big strawberry puree aroma with a little oak and light funk. Tastes moderately sour. Lots of strawberries and oak. Light funkiness and some light apricot too. Nice tartness in the finish. Really good.
