3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Vibrant orange body, yielding no head or carbonation at all... Oily looking, almost like a still mead. Aroma is lovely with notes of strawberry, sweet & almost candy-like. Hints of barnyard hay & lightly sweaty funk back up the strawberry fruits. Wow - the first sip is unexpectedly sour. Incredibly sour, puckering... Aroma smelled more sweet, but the taste is all sour. Loses complexity... Less strawberry & funk, more of a lactic, lemon flesh & sweettart sourness that rips through everything. Very timid strawberry & musty funk in the finish, but the acidic notes tower over everything. Moderate vinegar throughout. Flat, oily mouth feel, really wish this was carbonated better (or at all). I love the ripping sourness of the beer, just wish it maintained more of the complexity of the strawberries & funk on the palate. Appearance/body hurts the score, this would be better with proper carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Smells like funky strawberry juice. Taste is very close to the smell. Puckeringly sour. Very funky taste and all around beer. Zero carbonation unfortunately. Overall really funky beer with a big sour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a golden honey with no head, similar to a mead / cyser in appearance. Moldy strawberries on the nose, perhaps some ammonia and bitter fruit pits as well? Tart, musky, vinous, woody, lactic. A summertime golden shower precluding a kinky, psychedelic trip with Mother Nature. Not for the faint or prude of heart.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Hazy, light copper, no head and no bead or lacing. Very dull, aged, bacterial nose. Stale urine almost. Just the slightest hint of fruit if you imagine it.
Very dry and sour with no bitterness. Searing acidity but reasonably clean. finishes just a bit soapy. Amazing acid. Good length.
Hard to call it a fruit beer but it is like drinking old world white wine.
Rustic. Quenching. It does build on you.

Bottle to snifter. Has no head at all. No carbonation. Smells sour with sweet strawberries. Tastes like strawberries with sour after taste. Absolutely delicious besides the lack of carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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

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.
