Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 4, 2014
Saurer, leicht fruchtiger Antrunk, rein. Die Säure nimmt deutlich zu, wird aber nie unangenehm, vollmundig. Das Bier bleibt dann auf diesem Level, mild säuerlicher Abgang mit weiterhin milden Fruchtnoten. Gut! 8/12/12/13/12/13

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
C&C 750 mL bottle from Wine Warehouse, 2006 vintage, opened 11/2/13. Pours a hazy amber color with not much of a head. Aroma of heavy funk, earth, pepper, stone fruits, berries. The taste is strawberries dominating an earthy and funky finish along with some citrus. Medium bodied, low carbonation, lingering tart fruits. Overall quite nice.

Miked1687 (606) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle from 2013 it appears. Golden pour with no head, little to no carbonation. Nose is tart and funky with some strawberry. Taste is sweet vinegary body with a natural tart strawberry finish.

kingstoni (1345) - FINLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Hazy golden color with no head. Sour and sweet lambic yeast aroma with apricot and some urinal notes. Acidic and sour dry taste. Some sweetness in otherwise bitter finish.

freeofthoughts (634) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle pours a hazy yellow gold with no fizz. The aroma is a mustard vinegar that settles into a strawberry marmalade. The flavor started a very quirky Brett funk and slightly off fermented strawberries but does have a grainy musty Belgian pilsner like flavor under it. No carbonation hardly it serves to stand in it’s own. Not to special, not altogether a loss, but definitely strange brew.

tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle (375 ml). Thanks to Randall for this one! Slightly hazy straw color with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of intense strawberries (jam), acetic notes, light funk and wood. Taste is also of intense strawberry jam along acetic presence and wood notes. Light to medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. Dry finish. The strawberry aroma/taste is so present, it’s impressive (especially if there’s no artificial flavor used). The beer is not particularly complex though, but still quite enjoyable and drinkable.

mathieuc (996) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Pours a clear light golden and completely still. Aroma is surprisingly bright with more strawberries than I expected. There is also some light vinegar in there which I despise. Taste is really acid and fruity with a surprisingly sweet strawberry finish. The acid gets tiresome, though. Mouthfeel, or maybe I should say "throatfeel", is burning from all the acetic acid. Body is light. Too acetic for me to consider it again.

czar (3790) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
bottle shared by tom10101, thanks bro. pours hazy very pale yellow without a head, no lacing. intense fresh strawberries, wild strawberries precisely, hint of perfumey red fruits, vehiculed in a smooth acetic basis, almost tingling, bit of grass and herbs, low cheesy and relatively low barnyard. low carbonation, light body - oily, dry citric-acetic and fruity-grassy finish. very enticing aroma. overall nice but not outstanding.

CH-303 (1318) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Appearance: Cloudy golden, absolutely totally flat. Not very appetizing. Aroma: Tart fruit, berries. Taste: Very tart, some fruit and berries. Sickly. Info: 375ml bottle, 23/12-2013, 54/100, BB: 7/8-2027
