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.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Bottle 375ml, limited edition 2000 sampled 1/23/05: Bright golden amber color with a tiny off-white head. Light bodied, medium carbonatin with a lively mouthfeel. Aroma: Strawberries, barnyard, cowbwebs, dust, sour yeast. Taste: Very sour upfront, then notes of wheat, pepper, acidic fruit, efferescence, strawberry, honey, peach, barnyard, leather, horseblanket. Finishes acidic, dry, sucking the moisture out of your mouth, with notes of strawberry, cheese, and sour wheat.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2005
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.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2005
Orange colour and almost no head. Aroma is sour. Flavor is fruity and sour with a bitter dry finish.

Bov (9960) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2004
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)

DanielBrown (3980) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2004
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.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Sweet aroma, strawberries, some sourness. Orange body, no head. Some horseblanket, but the strawberries dominates the flavor, a bit too sweet.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Pours yellow- orange. No head, even with an angry pour. Aromas of horse-blanket and strawberries. Classic lambic tartness with a hint of strawberries. Unbelievable sourness that smacks you in the back of your throat as you swallow. I wish I’d had this beer on some of our 100 degree days this past summer.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 17, 2004
definitely different, for me, strawberries don’t work as well as, for example, raspberries. However, this is still a nice lambic.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 Golden color, heavy sour aroma, heavy sour bitter strawberry taste, medium body, sour dry bitter finish.
