375 ml bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a snifter. Pours a golden orange that is clear with no head at all and zero carbonation. Nose has lots of lacto and some brett along with strong wild strawberry smell with some grass and oak along with a touch of vanilla. This is aggressively tart and acidic with the lacto really standing out in the taste. The finish is bone dry with young unripe strawberries all over the finish. I like lambics and this is fairly intense but good.

Malin_aiisa (231) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle. Amber, on head. Aroma of caramel, sour Apple. Sour taste, salty apple taste. No carbonation. Organic feel, but plastic finnish taste.

Maakun (1538) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2015
Shared bottle at home. Orange/light pink without head. Breakfast drinks with cereal and strawberry, yoghurt, strawberry jelly, young cheese, hay, lots of flowers, slight woody and metallic finish. Medium sour with light bitter finish. Medium bodied with barely any carbonation. Very lactic beer, bit weird but not bad at all.

Lawger (232) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2015
Pours a vibrant pale orange-amber with slight chill hazing and almost zero carbonation and head. The nose reveals a healthy dose of brett and funky barnyard scents, some sour sweets and fruitiness. There are obvious fruity/berry notes but I'm not sure I'd be able to identify it as strawberries if tasted blind. The palate is almost reminiscent of a Berliner Weisse with some saltiness. The acidity is there but not over the top. Strawberry ice cream and some toasted bread notes kick in mid palate and it ends on an almost chemical note. Very interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No head, no carbonation. Looks like apple juice. Quite pleasant tones of wild strawberry in the aroma, but also some burnt polyethylene. Really sour, but not too strong for me. Taste is similar to the aroma, but the burnt polyethylene is much stronger, especially in the aftertaste; there’s also some resinous quality to it. I’m sort of two minds on this - strawberry notes are very pleasant and unlike anything I’ve tried before, but the burnt plastic really kills it. A defective batch/barrel? Or maybe I can’t just handle the funkiness?

minutemat (2504) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
375ml bottle from beermerchants.com. Fascinating lambic with captivating sour strawberry flavours, some flan, funk and a soft lingering fruitiness. Hugely enjoyable.

BrunoSanchez (185) - Fermo, ITALY - MAY 16, 2015
Lambic con aggiunta di fragole. Bellissimo colore aranciato senza schiuma. Al naso intensi aromi di fragole andate a male con note di legno e spezie. In bocca zero carbonazione, corpo medio e estremamente acida! Il sapore inizia dall’aceto di mela che pian piano lascia una scia di fragola alla fine. Buona ed aggressiva consigliatissima agli amanti del mondo acido.

ninecats (330) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2015
37,5 cl bottle. Semi-clear orange/light reddish, zero head. Aroma is tart funky, slight barnyard, very apparent fruity/strawberry tone, oak, jam. Taste starts tart, with a fruity musty tone of strawberries, citrus, wood, slight flourish/bubblegum hint, going into a more vinegary tart state, with a defined dryness in the finish. Medium to full body, zero carbo, sticky texture. Perfect on the spring evening.
