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

It had a rather strange aroma. Somewhat like cheese or so. Sweet and round start. Strongly sour finish and a distinct bitter aftertaste. Strong bitter aftertaste.

Pours an orange color that is somewhat hazy. No head whatsoever. Aroma is over-ripe fruit with some sourness as well. Flavor is tart strawberries with some organic grassy notes. Body is medium. A pretty decent beer.

Slighlty hazed orange body, terrible looking soda head. The nose gives a little bit of strawberry but mostly it is leather al warpped up in an acidic punch. After further consoltation with my glass I am also picking up some cheese notes. Really. The flavor is a big sour punch followed by strawberries and a definte acidic character. Medium light body, kind of a flat finish but very refreshing none the less.

madsberg (10459) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2004
Bottled @ ’t Brugs Beertje: Golden coloured. Has no head. Vinegar, strawberry and some sweetness in the aroma. Flavour has a fine sourness, that a balanced by a little too much sweetness. The strawbeery taste is present but not dominating. Is dry and sweet in the end. Is a little too sodapoppish for me.

Aromas of barnyard, horse blanket and a hint of strawberry. Very tart flavor with a hint of strawberry. This beer was very refreshing. I enjoyed it greatly.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 23, 2004
This lambic pours with a golden orange body topped with no head and little lacing. The aroma is tart and sour with a slight strawberry note and a slight barnyard note. The flavor is tart with a slight sweetness and a very slight strawberry note, as wellas, some barnyard. Medium bodied and dry, dry, dry.

The coark is been removed whithout any ’pof’ at all. Orange to golden body, which is quite clear. There’s no carbonisation and head at all. Sweet, sourish (horseblanket) aroma. Moderately sour, lightly sweet initial flavour. Heavily sour finish, which is moderately long. Soft mouthfeel.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2004
This is what lambic brewing is all about ... funky flavors abound! Loads of feet, horseblanket in the aroma -- the girlfriend refused to drink it after smelling it. Mouth-puckering sour with a pleasant back of the throat bitterness. Strawberries aren’t specifically identifiable, but there’s some fruitiness here. A great lambic.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2005 Updated. Much better than when I had it before. More strawbeery presence, much more balanced instead of being sour, and more drinkable. (Old review) This has some pretty crazy flavors floating around. My girlfriend thought it tasted like lemon juice because it had such strong SOUR notes. Strawberry and wood notes are present and nice. Refreshing, but much harder to drink than other lambics I’ve had. Some strong smoked wood notes on the finish. Interesting, but not for me. 6/3/6/4/12
