4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy straw color with almost no head. Aroma is slightly barnyard like with a just a hint of sweetness. The flavor is absolutely amazing. Horseblanket funkiness complimented perfectly by a previously unexperienced tangy strawberry flavor. The sourness of the beer does just as good of a job adding texture to this beer as high carbonation would so the lack of heavy carbonation is brilliant. Freakin’ awesome!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A true lambic, funky and tart all around. The pour was rose / pink colored, very clear, lots of initial fizzle, but no sustaining head or lacing of any sort. The aroma was of mold, cheese, light citrus, and berries (no, I could’t explicitly pick out strawberries were it not for the label). Flavor followed the aroma, some funk and acidic notes mixed in there. Mouthfeel was clearly acidic, and this was a tart and bona-fied lambic.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2007 Bottle. Golden body with a few sad wispy bubbles. About 90% flat. Nose-BIG sickly sweet geuze nose with alot of funk, hose, and what smells like strawberry. Taste-acidic, muted hose and barn, artificial sweetener, not nearly as much berry flavor in the taste as was in the nose, slight cardboard. Taste like the Hanssens Oude Gueuze but thinned down and with artificial sweetener added. Not bad, but there are much better out there to be had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy golden-orange color with a small white head. Acidic aroma, with citrus, hay and hints of berries. Mild acidity up front that blends into a well rounded strawberry flavor, light notes of peaches are also present. Tart, mouth puckering finish. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a misty golden amber color with very little carbonation and light head and quickly diminishing at that. The nose is full of tart and sour belgian funkyness, lots of horsey barny notes with brett and crisp malts. Lots of tartness and acidity. The flavor is very robust and flavorful with a huge slap of acidity and a barely noticable underripe strawberry flavor. The finish is brief and quenching. Nice lambic, way different than I was expecting.

’02 bottle. Cloudy gold, no head. Nose is acidic w. lemon, oak, funk. Not strawberries so much as a hay filled strawberry field. Very acidic up front giving way to strawberry, oak, lemon, grapes. Bitter lemon/strawberry finish. Nice!

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
2000 bottle consumed in ’06. i didn’t expect too much but this left me stunned. rose appearance, huge aroma of tomato vine and a touch of strawberry with a threat of some lambic rancidity. the sourness had mellowed significantly but was still mouth-puckering and showed some tomato juice and blood and suggested strawberry fruit tella and salted lemon. amazing

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Powerfully funky aroma, tart and full of Brettanomyces character with notes of freshly cut wood, faint amounts of strawberry and sweetness, dried leafy herbs, cellar must and distinctly sulfurous hints. Clear light-medium golden amber color, forming only a slight head which quickly and fully diminished. Flavor begins malty, grainy, lightly bready and dry, quickly turning intensely sour and fruity with finishing suggestions of citrus and tart strawberry, leaves, seeds and all. A bit lifeless on the palate with a lightly syrupy texture and medium body. Lacking depth to a certain extent but provides some interest, ultimately.

I received a sample of this from Richlikebeer and I enjoyed the tart aspect of it but the strawberries didn’t seem well blended. Perhaps its too tart? I should rerate as I sampled Hannssens Kriek before this which blew me away.
