COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique, refreshing beer appetizer is the result of amalgamating fresh strawberries with lambic during summer.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2004
Bottle at spuyten duyvil. No head at all, fairly still. Weird extremely clear peach color. It looks like a mix of apple and peach juice and not appealing at all in fact. The aroma catches up for the looks though with its straightforward strawberry pie nuances. Captivating sweet/tart combat. Almost as candyish as if lindemans had done it, but there’s still a hint of that hanssens funk though it would score much higher with me if this wasn’t restrained so much. Actually hints of sugar powder. Palate is actually very tart. Agressively acidic finish with obvious strawberries, but like my pal martin pointed out, it just doesn’t procures the classy combination cherries or raspberries do. Puckering grapeish finish, decent dose of lactic funk, unusually dry finish which seems to arrive from nowhere with such a fruity start. Medium body is almost still and detracts overall enjoyment just like the appearance did.

2000 bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with hints of red. No head, slight rim around the edges. Aroma is sourish, hints of strawberry. Taste is very tart on first sip and seems to tone down after two or three swallows. Body is medium. Pleasant.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2004
Orange color with no head. It has an incredible fruity light sour aroma. The taste is very fruity with grapefruit and strawberries as the dominant flavours. It has a sharp sour palate but it is very pleasant. Excellent beer.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Very fizzy head atop a very lite copper ale. Aromas of horsehair and green sour strawberries and peach. Intensely dry and acidic. Pretty drinkable though. A pretty good lambic.

How on earth can strawberries taste so acidic? This beer may very well have the worst aroma of any beer I have ever encountered...

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Year 2000 edition. pours a deep gold with a touch of copper, clear, with virtually no carbonation. Nose is pure funk, loads of cottage cheese, a touch of cheddar, and a piercing tartness, almost like doing a line of pulverized lemon sours. Puckering sourness in the mouth carries a faint fruit note, perhaps the strawberries trying to make their presence felt. Descends into a finish of cottage cheese and musk. I don’t mind flavors like these, but this seemed to lack any refinement or balance between the sourness and the cheese notes. Challenging and interesting, but not really completely enjoyable in the end.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Cloudy copper color with hardly any head at all. Taste was sour strawberry, which I wasn’t expecting at all. Really sour grapefruit flavor to go along with it. I couldn’t finish this. Way too sour for my taste.

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Poured a hazy reddish orange color with no head at all. no lacing either. Aroma of strawberry and horseblanket. The aroma was very strong and funky. Tart and sour, lemon taste. Taste was very sour, lots of grapefruit. A decent lambic, thanks Eyedrinkale!

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2004 At the Brugs Beertje,Outstanding fruitbeer on a lambic basis. Oudbeitje has a great golden-orange color and no head. The smell is fresh and lively. It has this tipical lambic aroma’s with a hint of fraise de bois.It smells allmost like a great burgundy wine. The taste is fresh and sour, a little out of balance but still a great beer in its own style.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 6, 2004
This lambic ale poured with no head and elicited a sharp fruity aroma. The flavor was dominated by the unmistakable lamibic base and the taste of sweet strawberries was not as subtle as with most good fruit-flavored lambics. Not quite on par with the other Hanssens lambics, but was very drinkable.
