3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at The London/Joet Gathering Chez Chris_O. A hazy peachy coloured beer with an aroma which is full of strawberries from a distance but then closer to the nose is sour and any specific fruits are indistinguishable. The taste is rasping and snappy. Both strawberries and apples seem to come through.

The Kilburn Gathering. Strawberry wafts from a distance - barnyard and acid up close. Dry. Straw. Acid. Barnyard. Interesting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled, 0.375l) Dark orange/amber color with almost no head. Very sour, maybe slightly fruity aroma. Very sour, acidic, fruity flavor. Medium-bodied, sour and low-carbonated palate. Still too sour for me, can’t really distinguish any flavors.

Pours a clear copper color with no head at all. Aroma is of strawberry with some tart sourness, and lemons. Flavor is unique. Fruity, with a mold-like sharpness all the way through, finishing very very dry.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled in 2000. Beautiful tawny-orange colour with an almost still appearance. Bright aroma of strawberry, light dustiness, and a hint of barnyard funkiness. Aroma is quite tart, citric and ascorbic acids. Flavour is very sour, strawberry up front, acidic middle leading into a slightly sweetish finish. Maybe a touch of effervescence on the palate. Strangely, some sips seem quite sweet, others are intensely sour. An intriguing beer. Complex and tasty. Thanks cheesecloth.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2008 amber-orange colour, absolutely no foam, strawberry jam aroma, notes of apricot and honey plus something rather unpleasant, a bit oily, dry and very acidic/sourish, the finish is long and very dry with notes of honey - extreme, aggressive and quite dubious (thanks to Laurent Mousson for this one)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Stirhcley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. Iridescent peach colour, with no head or fizz. Sour fruit aroma, with only a hint of strawberry. An assault on the tastebuds: fragrant fruit, sweet and sour in large and equal measures, intermingled. Hard to pin down: some farmyard funk and some milky feeling, as the sour recedes and the smoothness creeps in. Demanding but rewarding.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet aroma, strawberries, some sourness. Orange body, no head. Some horseblanket, but the strawberries dominates the flavor, a bit too sweet.
