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

Label on the bottle said 750ml. It was significantly smaller, but who knows? Unfiltered and dull golden hued. Sour vinegar aroma with a nice subtle strawberry note. Tart and medium bodied. Strong astringent flavor. Good, but not the best. Although it is my first strawberry lambic.

Crazy lambic aroma. The taste and aroma are that common horse blanket theme of these beers. The strawberries aren’t too evident, but this has got a great tart bite.

BeerandBlues2 (11825) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 22, 2006
375 mL bottle received from boutip. Pours a lightly cloudy and hazy orange with spare white fizzy head, completely diminishes with no head. Aroma is very intriguing and inviting, true traditional lambic; average malt (bread, roasted, meal), heavy hops (citrus, lemon), light yeast (earth) with notes of cherry, raspberry and cask. Green apple and tart, mouth puckering green fruit (strawberry, raspberry) flavor, heavy lemon tartness, long duration, light sweetness with heavy acidity and bitterness, some saltiness. Light bodied, oily texture, flat carbonation and astringent finish. Nice brew, thanks again Phil.

375 ml bottle shared by jerc from Inertiaboy. Hazy orange colour, no head. Lightly acidic and dry yeasty, cobweb, and leather aroma woth fresh wild strawberry notes. Initial sourness and lovely lambic funk gives way to light wild strawberry sweetness, then finishes with more pleasing tartness and acidity. Light bodied, refreshing. Many thanks Inertiaboy and jerc for sharing!

This is a very nice lambic, and a very nice "starter" lambic if you are trying to expose some people to one of the greatest beer styles out there. Is the aroma funky? Yeah, it is but it’s not so far funky that will turn someone away. It’s got the barnyard, old leather going but it’s very tame. Appearance is a light reddish/pink color with a fizzy head. To say the mouthfeel is puckering is accurate, but again it’s not so where it might turn someone away. Flavors are a nice blend of sweet strawberries, acidic, tartness as well as a bit of funk. I liked this and will buy more for other people to sample. It’s an eye opener for sure.

Bottle at Delirium, Brussels. Has the Hanssens house fingerprint all over it. Didn’t pick up so much of the strawberries at first but after comparing with a straight gueze they were definitely noticeable. I enjoyed Hanssens gueuze and the strawberries in this worked great.

jercraigs (9439) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Inertiaboy. Hazy amber headless body. Powerfully acidic aroma u-turns to sweet strawberry. Bone dry acidic flavour with strong bacterial character. Strawberries are hard to pick out past the sourness. Average palate. Decent, but a rough ride for non-lambicheads. Thanks for sharing Inertiaboy! .

TaktikMTL (6943) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2006
Bouteille verte de 375 ml, avec bouchon de liège, obtenue via Importations Privées Bièropholie. Arôme: Odeur de fraises et de vinaigre. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée légèrement voilée. Saveur: Le goût est très acide. Personnellement je n’ai pas aimé du tout. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Forte effervescence en bouche. Présence de vinaigre en arrière goût. Aucune idée si la bouteille était contaminée ou bien si c’est moi qui à pas vraiment aimé ce lambic. (Rating #743)

rederic (3250) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2006
Slight cloudy honey gold hue, with no head and carbonation, the nose is one of wineyness, barnyard, funky horse blanket, leathery, acidic, wet oakiness, with a subtle strawberry fruitiness in the aroma follows through on a pure lambic palate with a yeasty brettanomyces character, with a winey, tart accent, with a faint strawberry fruit flavor, musty, oaky, horse blanket notes, with the usual lambic nature, leading towards a dry, tartness finish.
