3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml green corked and caged bottle, with a label picturing strawberries, poured into a Rodenbach Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy orange with no head, just a few bubbles that quickly dissipated. Aroma of overly ripe strawberries, barnyard and a hint of vinegar. Flavours of slightly unripe strawberries, green apples, lemon and oak wood notes. Taste is light sweet and medium-heavy sour. Palate is light-medium bodied, slick texture and flat carbonation. Hanssens Oudbeitje is refreshing, the strawberry is noticeable but not dominating.

375ml bottle. Light, slightly strawberry tinted rose with no head. Lightly sour funky barnyard typical lambic aroma with a sweet overtone of ripe strawberries. Sour and funky taste with sweet, and slightly salty mineralic, strawberry going over to a taste of sweet and sour strawberries and a light dry earthiness. Completely flat and with a light mouthfeel leaving lasting impressions.

Bottle. Tart funky barnyard, light oak, and earthy strawberry aroma. Brassy gold with a minimal head. Tart funky lactic, sweet strawberry, and earthy floral vanilla flavor. Light body, soft carbonation. The sweetness of the strawberries balance the tartness nicely.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The most striking feature is that it should be more carbonated. Almost no head at all. A complex taste with strawberries and citrus, and a slight bitterness like grape fruit. After a while will the sourness dominate. Nice balance in tastes.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is mostly strawberry jam with some lime in background. Tastes like strawberries but more like dried strawberries than fresh. The strawberry taste is soon overtaken by the sourness. Should have been drier and more carbonated. Pretty nice summery lambic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle sample @ Linköping Beer Expo 2015) Clear orange-gold pour with no head. The nose is a wild combination of rich, cheesy, kind of phenolic funk and fresh strawberry flesh and seeds with a little wood for support. On the palate it’s again got an intense and fairly unique cheese and Brett funky feet character, cloudberry?, sour with sharp lactic acidity, touch of vinegar, wood, and this bright and a little phenolic strawberry flesh/seed character popping out and becoming quite dominant by the finish. Lots of strawberry in the aftertaste. Light body, flat. Unblended lambic I presume, really funky and sour stuff, mishmash of flavours with the strawberry, works much better for me than the sum of its parts. Not sure I could drink tons though.

Small bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a small head. Aroma of strawberries, some tartness, pale malts, hints of spices, and more fruit. Flavor has a lot of strawberries and a nice blend. Sort of lacking carbonation. A cool beer with a nice strawberry flavor.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tart berry aroma. Hazy orange color with no head whatsoever. Kinda flat. Starting to think I got a dud. Super tart with a cough syrup consistency. I dunno, it’s alright.
